The intersectional teams from the Ottawa Hunt and Rideau View golf clubs held their annual duel for the “A” Division Championship in the Ottawa Valley Golf Association Intersectionals played at the Rideau View Golf Club on Sunday, July 10th. Strong competition also came from the Royal Ottawa team today.

Since 2002, only Rideau View and the Ottawa Hunt & Golf Clubs have taken home the OVGA “A” Men’s Intersectional Trophy presented by Golf-O-Max. With today’s win, Rideau View stretched their current advantage to fourteen wins while the Ottawa Hunt has six wins in that time.

The Ottawa Hunt team held the lead over Rideau View briefly with their first player in but that was the last lead they would have in head-to-head competition with Rideau View. Don’t get me wrong as the Ottawa Hunt team was hot on the heels of the Rideau View team throughout the afternoon, but they just couldn’t close the gap. Rideau View was announced as the “A” Division OVGA Intersectional Champions by OVGA Representative Alex Pugh and the OVGA Intersectional Trophy was presented by OVGA President and Golf-O-Max sponsor Dru Lafave.

Members of the winning Rideau View Team were Brady Atchison, David Bourada, Chris Collins, Josh Goheen, Mark MacKay, Mike Mallette, Dan Ryan, Caelan Sammy, Skyler Sicoli, Tim Sullivan, Owen Walsh and Darren White.

Flagstick caught up with Rideau View Captain John Radmore and asked him about the win. He responded, “I’m relieved to win today. We have an amazing team but we had three other amazing teams here today. Our membership is overjoyed that we came out on top today.”

Before they joined the other teams for a meal, the rookies on the Rideau View team, including their new professional Roger Beale, continued a long-standing tradition of going for a dip in the pond on the sixth hole. John Radmore assured me that arrangements had been made for visits to a dermatologist if required.

Royal Ottawa finished third in today’s competition in the “A” Division standings and retains their spot in the 2023 “A” Division. Joining Rideau View, Ottawa Hunt and Royal Ottawa in “A” Division next year will be the team from Carleton Golf & Yacht Club that eked out a win over Camelot at Camelot in “B” Division. 

Players winning the maximum 6 points in their matches today were Chris Bockstael, Patrick Goodhue and Brent Rebus from the Ottawa Hunt & Golf Club, along with Rideau View members Darren White, Josh Goheen, Mark MacKay, Caelan Sammy and Skyler Sicoli. 

Congratulations also to all of the Rideau View Members who provided live scoring as an upgrade to their Golf Genius program by Paul Sauve from the Club. There was tremendous support for all of the Clubs today at Rideau View.
