If you’re a golf fan living in the Limestone City, then you’ll be happy to hear that Kingston is now set to host the 2019 OCAA Golf Championship.
St. Lawrence College (SLC) has been selected as the host college for the 2019 belairdirect Ontario Colleges Athletic Association (OCAA) Golf Championship from Sunday, Sept. 29 to Wednesday, Oct. 2, 2019. This comes after SLC made a successful bid presentation at the OCAA Annual General Meeting in Toronto in May.
The Championship will take place at the Cataraqui Golf and Country Club, one of Canada’s oldest and most celebrated golf courses. The private golf course will play host to OCAA men and women varsity golfers, and feature three Championship rounds beginning on Monday, September 30, with professional coverage from Golf Ontario and St. Lawrence College’s Athletics department.
“The Cataraqui Golf and Country Club and our tremendous staff are all looking forward to hosting the OCAA Championship this fall. We look forward to hosting this strong field through what is sure to be a great week of golf,” said Jay Gazeley, Chief Operating Officer at Cataraqui Golf and Country Club.
SLC’s Cornwall campus previously hosted the OCAA Golf Championship in 2011 at the Cornwall Golf and Country Club. According to SLC, this year’s event marks the first time in the college’s history that the Kingston campus will host.
Those with SLC said they are excited to showcase the city, campus, golf course, and varsity golf program, which will compete again after finishing third overall at the 2018 Championship in London, Ontario last year.
“St. Lawrence College is thrilled to have the opportunity to host the 2019 OCAA Golf Championships,” said Kevin Biggs, Manager of Athletics and Student Engagement at SLC. “When we started this process, there was only one course we wanted to use and we are thrilled our next-door neighbors at the Cataraqui Golf and Country Club have opened their doors to the top provincial collegiate golfers.”
