Team Rideau View Golf Wins OVGA Men’s Intersectionals

Team Rideau View Golf win the 2017 OVGA Men's A Intersectionals. Rookie John Blakley accepts the trophy from Marc Ffrench of the OVGA

Once again home soil proved to be an advantage for the team from Rideau View Golf in the 2017 Ottawa Valley Golf Association Men’s Intersectionals presented by Golf-O-Max.

The talented squad was down mid-way in the matches to the Camelot Golf & Country Club but rallied on to prevail by a five point margin. It was their fourth victory in a row and fifteenth time taking the title.

This year the Rideau View team accumulated 38 points in total. Leading the way as 6-pointers (winning all three of their matches) was John Blakley, Mark McKay, and Chris Collins

“Pretty exciting I’d say”, was Rideau View Club Captain Grant Skinner’s response shortly after the Rideau View Team had been announced as the winner of the 2017 OVGA “A” Class Intersectionals on their home course. “This was our 4th win in a row and 12 of the last 16 competitions in “A” Division. I just think this is a players’ golf course and guys that come out here want to compete at all times. Whether it’s at the “A” level or the senior level or the “B” level, everybody wants to play that way and that’s what creates a winning atmosphere. We had two rookies on the team this year and they took 11 points. They’re pretty excited and it just shows you the depth we have at the Club.”

Given the recent flurry of rain in the region the Rideau View team had to work extra hard to be sure the course was more than presentable for what is known as the biggest annual golf competition in the Ottawa Valley each year.

Their General Manager, Steve Ducat, noted. “Gord MacMillan (Superintendent) and his crew did a fantastic job getting the course playable for us today. The course was closed yesterday and they worked from 5am to 8pm yesterday and they were back this morning from 5am to 11am. The greens were double cut and rolled both yesterday and this morning.”

It is sure to be a much-coveted win with Rideau View Golf Club celebrating their 60th anniversary this year and also marking 40 years with Head Professional Paul Sherratt on staff.

The complete winning crew included Josh Cooper (Alternate), Paul Spare (Alternate), Mike Mallette, Austin Evans, Brett Merriman, John Blakley, Justin DeVroome, Mark Mackay, Griffin Jones, Tim Sullivan, Chris Collins, and Josh Goheen.

Camelot earned 33 points with 6 point efforts by Scott Ray, Wesley Kwok, and Taylor Collins.

Ottawa Hunt was third with 28 points. Ben Bell was their lone 6 pointer.

The team falling to B Division for 2018 will be Rivermead. Within their 21 points earned, Julien-Alexandre Sale won all his matches for six points.
