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.
