Renfrew’s Rob Warren Wins
OVGA Senior Championship
Playing over his home course on the final day of two, Rob Warren
th
won the OVGA Senior Championship on August 26 . His closing
round of 66 at the Renfrew Golf Club was just two strokes off his own
course record.
Warren had opened with a score of 72 at the Mississippi Golf Club
on day one but it was the familiar turf of Renfrew where he broke
away from the pack. His two day total of 72-66-138 helped him best
the field of 115 golfers by an eight stroke margin.
The nearest competitor to Warren was past champion Lyle
Alexander of Greensmere. The perennial contender and OVGA
Rules official could only manage a score of 146 (72, 74) in his
pursuit of Warren. Gene Markell of Kanata and Rick St-Denis of
Kingsway Park tied for third place at 149.
Both Warren and Alexander were tops in their age classes. Other
division winners including Willy Walker of Outaouais in the 65-69
age class and Hal Hansen of Kanata in the 70 plus category.

Amalgamation Meeting Date Set
The Boards of the Ottawa Valley Golf Association and The Ottawa
District of Golf Quebec, RCGA Women’s Division have given tentative
approval to the formation of a new golf association in the Ottawa Valley. The
final merger protocol document and by-laws have been produced by amal-
gamation working committees from both groups over the past two years.
Rideau View Country Club will host both the Ladies Annual General
Meeting and a special meeting of OVGA representatives on Thursday,

October 16,2008. At these meetings the protocol document and by-laws for
the new organization will be presented for approval.
If the protocol document and by-laws are ratified by representatives of
both of the present organizations, the new corporate name of the new
association will be announced as the Ottawa Valley Golf Association. A
meeting of members of the new association will be held that evening to
approve a proposed slate of Directors for the merged organization.
The initial Board of the proposed new Association will have 15 mem-
bers, with 10 men and 5 women serving until the spring 2010 Annual
General Meeting.
If ratified the new Ottawa Valley Golf Association would usher in a new
era for golf in the region. It paves the way for cooperation in all matters,
higher efficiency in operations, and a united front in all matters concerning
amateur golf in the region.
The Ottawa Valley is the last major region in Canada to amalgamate men’s
and women’s golf organizations. By working together there can be a higher
level of service to the membership and in the end, that is good for the game
of golf. Watch www.flagstick.com for updates.
