Time to reward yourself and your team with an amazing golfing experience at the the Eastern Ontario/Outaouais Chapter Golf Invitational which will take place July 31 at Carleton Golf & Yacht Club. Stay tuned for registration details coming soon. This event will sell out fast, so be sure to register your team when the early bird registration begins! All across Canada, members of the NGCOA Canada gather annually in late summer and early fall to take a break from their standard 18+ hour days to enjoy some time to unwind, network with good friends and peers, and connect once more with key suppliers. These chapter Golf Invitationals continue to accomplish what the NGCOA Canada does best – they create a sense of community among Canadian golf course operators, allowing for the exchange of new ideas and ways to grow your business.


Thank You for Attending

Thank you to all of you who attended the annual Eastern Ontario/Outaouais Chapter Spring Warm-Up! There was a fantastic buzz in the air and great networking from the over 70 chapter members and 28 suppliers who came to the Marshes on March 24.  Members walked away from the event armed and ready to tackle the upcoming season! The NGCOA Canada presented our annual Pulse Report, as well as updates across the Canadian golf industry landscape, new Golfmax Purchasing Programs, NGCOA initiatives and upcoming member events.Two different guest speaker sessions provided important, timely and relevant education to all in attendance. “Workplace Opioid Overdose: Naloxone training session” by Nermin Makar, Pharmacist from Forest Valley Pharmacy was a real eye opener and outlined the legal expectations for golf course operations in Ontario. Then we changed directions to Food & Beverage with Entegra with “You’re already buying the products, now let’s get you Saving!” presentation led by Karin Flynn, Director, National Accounts.  CPA’s and Direct Buys were the hot topic with plenty of follow-up questions and emails after the event.The Open Forum discussion was dominated by a current issue that Members have been struggling with the last 6 months with OVGA Intersectionals and their current set-up.  The feedback from the meeting is that everyone wants to see the Intersectionals continue, with possibly some tweaks, but you must reach out to have your voice heard by the Committee put together to help resolve the issue as all Participating courses have received emails.

Here are the links to the different presentations from our Spring Warm Up event:

•    NGCOA EOO Scorecard (including Canadian Golf Industry updates, NGCOA initiatives, Golfmax Purchasing Program updates, and more)
