What is the NCGT

The National Capital Golf Tour will celebrated our 15th Anniversary Season in 2016, is an opportunity for golfers of all skill levels to get together for a competitive round of golf in a friendly, inclusive atmosphere. 

The Tour started in 2002 as a group of close friends were looking to do something a bit different. Something that gives weekend golfers a chance to play golf like they belong to club themselves, but with changing venues.

Originally affiliated with the OttawaGolf website, the OttawaGolf Tour had over 50 players come out in that first year, with Diane Hamilton finishing the season as our 2002 Tour Champion after playing in eight of the nine events.  

In 2006, after 4 years of success, the Tour was rebranded the
“National Capital Golf Tour”
and changes were made to how the scoring was done. The NCGT started using the modified Stableford for scoring, and the leaderboard is based on the accumulation of the scores that each player receives the events.  To be fair, we use the best 7 of 10 events played. In 2010 we had over 60 golfers play, with many playing every year since the Tour was started.

We also have special events through-out the season (some of which count towards the Leaderboard and others that do not):

Special Season Opener

Spring and Fall Majors

36 hole Ryder Cup Event

3 day / 4 Round Road Trip

End of Year Trophies / Prizes

2-Man October Scramble

     Winter Silly Season       

In terms of administration, the Tour maintains both a handicap and rules committee to try and keep the playing field as level as possible.

Our Program & Local Rules

There are several ways to enjoy a round of golf. A competitve round in a fun theatre is the best way I know how to play. Our program is geared for every level of golfer from beginers to low handicappers with the desire to compete with other weekend golfers. With closest to the pins and handicapped cleaners, we feel all level of golfers will have a chance at winning.

While we play by the rules of golf, the NCGT has adopted our own set of local rules that will apply to all our tour event play. Our local rules are meant for speeding up play.

What Our Members are Saying...
"There are so many great reasons for golfing. I really enjoy spending a couple of hours away from my everyday life, a time to get away from the demands, the pressures, and daily grind. I enjoy the fresh air, the landscape. And golf as a game, there is nothing quite like the challenge it provides. Analyzing a hole, picking the right club, making a good swing. There are few things as sweet as making a perfect swing and knowing the ball is going where you wanted it to go. The game is great because where else can you just relax, enjoy the outdoors, and whack a ball around. Of course, there is tournament golf. It adds an extra dimension to the game. The pressure and challenges tournamnet golf offers makes it so much different from a everyday round. I really enjoy the challlenge that comes with tournment golf. I like challenging myself, seeing how and if I can meet the challenges. Can I play a round to my handicap or better? How well do I score against the field? Maybe win a little something? And match play – now we are talking some serious fun. The adrenaline pumping and the pressure to perform one shot, one chip, or one putt is just fun. And having a partner in match play, relying on me to help, adds a little something extra to the mix. Not that I always rise to the challenge – hey I can choke like the best of them – but it’s great to hit the shot you need to when you need to. Finally, and arguably most important is who I spend those hours on the golf course with. What makes a round truly enjoyable, regardless how I play, is who I joins me for the golfing adventure. How often do I get to spend four hours or so with three friends to talk, to joke, and to share the good and the bad of whatever the round has in store for all of us. It is even better when I am part of a group, mixing and matching with anyone from the group and having a drink to celebrate the round at the 19th hole. Now that makes the round more than just a round! And this is exactly what the National Capital Golf Tour provides me. It is the opportunity, to get together with gang of golfers, who like the challenges of golf and tournaments, golfers willing to share the good, the bad, and the ugly with each other, developping friendships and having a good time along the way. That is why I joined the National Capital Golf Tour and why I keep coming back. Memories are made each time I tee it up because I teed it up with many friends and the day is not just any day. IT IS AN EVENT!"
