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...
In January of 2011 I stared down the road of a new season of the most aggravatingly enjoyable sport on the planet. While still a new comer to the sport (2011 was only my 6th season) for the first time I was not feeling excited about a new season of sneaking out every second I could to whack at that little white ball. Something was missing. It was at this time I stumbled on the NCGT website (maybe like you are doing right now!). What the NCGT offered was fun and enjoyable golf with people who love the 'sport' of the game... competition. I had to plan a season around ten different events at ten different courses, 9 of which I have never played before. Before NCGT my attitude was why would I ever get up at 5am just to drive to Renfrew to play golf? What has Montebello got to offer that others courses don't? What's the difference between an older course and one built recently? Links style and traget golf? Why would you ever play golf in the rain? Put these demands on your game of golf and the sport opens a whole new world to explore. My practice at the driving range is now based on my last NCGT tournament and I practice rain or shine. Next year as soon as the season is posted I will be booking practice rounds at the courses NCGT has decided to use. I came in last place this year and didn't win a penny and I still can't wait to sign up next year. OR 5 years ago a good friend introduced me to the game of golf. This year NCGT has introduced me to the sport of golf and I can't wait for next year!
