Its pastoral, peaceful setting is one of Rideau View’s great attributes. There are no homes adjacent to fairways or the noise of passing traffic. The result is a relaxing environment that is still remarkably close to Ottawa’s urban centre.


Founded in 1957, its 18 holes were designed by Canadian architects Howard Watson (current back nine, 1958) and C.E. “Robbie” Robinson (the front nine, 1961).
Six sets of tees ranging from 4,970 yards to more than 7,000 yards present fair challenges for all players, embracing their skill level.
The club retains the services of Canadian golf architect Ian Andrew to oversee and advise the club on strategic improvements to the golf course.
Rideau View commits $1 million a year to course maintenance and upgrades to keep the club at the cutting edge of architectural, agronomic and environmentally-friendly trends.
