Men's A Intersectional Preview

JULY 11 2015


LANCASTER, PA. - This is golf's prime time.

Here at the Lancaster Country Club, Brooke Henderson of Smiths Falls is battling with the best golfers in the world at the U.S. Women's Open.

Next week at the home of golf, the Open Championship will be played at St. Andrews with Jordan Spieth trying to win the third leg of the Grand Slam.



They are at the pinnacle of the game on its biggest and most venerable stages.

Testing themselves against top competition is the essence of the game for most players.

For the top players in the Ottawa Valley, they will get their own competitive fix this weekend with the men's Intersectional competition. It's the annual battle for bragging rights with 10-man teams from the region's clubs divided into flights of four.

The 10 foursomes in each flight are made up of a player from each club and they go at it in a match play format, two points for a win; one for a tie.

It's pretty simple: win your flight and move up a step. Lose and you drop down one.

For a lot of players, it's the highlight of the summer because they are not only playing for themselves, but for their teammates and the reputation of their club.

The battle at the top of the pecking order in the A Flight is the best golf the national capital region can offer up.

Host Rideau View Golf Club and the Ottawa Hunt and Golf Club have swapped the title back and forth the last couple of years. Rideau View is hosting on the strength of last year's win.

That broke the Hunt Club's two-year winning streak.

With the first of those wins in 2012, the Hunt Club broke a six-year winning streak for Rideau View.

Since 2000, the two clubs have dominated the Intersectionals. Rideau View has won nine times and the Hunt Club, four. Rivermead won the other two in 2000 and 2001.

Along with Ottawa Hunt, the A Flight will include Arnprior (which finished second last year) and Rivermead, which moves up to replace the Smiths Falls Golf and Country Club.

Rideau View will be fielding a strong team in its bid to defend its title. The total combined handicap indices of its 10 starters is +1.5.

Seven team members have indices of less than one.

There are a lot of great days for golf at this time of year.

Sunday will be another of them.
