Host your tournament or corporate outing with us!
A beautiful golf course customized to your event... If you haven’t played the Canadian before, or in the last year, you should consider giving us the opportunity to show you around our property, and explain how we can make your event more enjoyable for you and your golfers. For forty years, the Canadian Golf and Country Club members and guests have found our historic headquarters in Ashton to be the perfect venue for business, pleasure and celebration. Combine our historic and scenic surroundings with the exquisite meals designed by the Head Chef and the impeccable services offered by our attentive staff and your function will become truly memorable. We don’t believe there is any one thing such as an exceptional golf course or stunning clubhouse that make a golf tournament a success. A successful event includes a combination of all of the above. Over the years, we have watched, taken notes and implemented various ideas and processes to make thousands of events at the Canadian run smoothly.
We make hosting an event - EASY! Our philosophy is simple; provide a turnkey, hassle free day, which results in great value and happy golfers. With our great attention to detail, we feel as though run some of the best events in Ottawa and our customer’s echo our feelings (click here to view some of our testimonials). Year after year we are provided with feedback from our tournament organizers which help us to strive in offering the best there is to offer. We have some events that have been with us for over 10 years; sounds simple and yet every year we work hard to bring additional products and services that are only found at the Canadian. Whether you are a group of 12 or 224 we will exceed your expectations.
Need gifting, loot bags, signage? We do it all! One stop shopping, Best Price Guaranteed! Our CPGA golf professionals offer the knowledge and expertise to bring you unique registration and prize table gifts that are always the best priced! Whether you are looking for tee gifts, clothing, custom shoes or bags there is no item that we can't source for you. Our staff comes with over ten years experience at the largest golf retail chain in Canada, and offer green grass lines sold only in Golf Shops across Canada which means we have lines that your local promotional company, have not even heard of! Our level of service also means your merchandise is displayed and ready to go for you with no worry about shipping or storage until the day of your event.
We can also provide all of your company's promotional and staff clothing needs!
Enhance your participant's experience... Our 18 Hole West Course is a beautiful golf course that has a reputation of always being in great shape. Our greens are a great speed and roll nicely. The course is always fun to play and a good test of golf but does not penalize the non-golfer. Our 9 hole East Course is a full length 9 which is popular for company staff or family gatherings and can be followed by a casual BBQ or a 5 course meal in our elegant second floor dining room.
Cutting edge technology to "Wow!" your players... We have heard the comments; our tournament participants loved our Visage GPS yardage system! We believe in offering the best that there is, so we can provide a superior golf experience! That is why, each of our 85 Club Car Precedent golf carts are equipped with canopies, windshield and bag protectors, and the Visage GPS system. The Visage GPS System is touch screen friendly, and provides accurate distance to the pin and to all course features while providing real time communication to our Pro Shop and Marshal staff. A real favorite for tournaments, is our on board live tournament scoring which is completed as each group completes a hole. The information is fed back to the proshop and automatically updates the leader board showing the top 10 golfers or foursomes. This brings an entertainment value that is always talked about around the dinner table after a day on the course. Tournaments organizers also have the opportunity to post customized electronic tournament ads on the day of your event which display at each tee and is at no additional cost to the tournament. This provides added value for your sponsors or allows you to save money on tournament signs.
Lastly, our Club Car golf carts also provide windshields and bag protectors, which may seem like a "little thing", but are very appreciated during that "quick downpour" or on a windy day!
Guarantee numbers and maximizing your revenue... A great example of our turnkey approach to successful events, is our ever improving online golfer registration service. Several years ago, it was brought to our attention that one of the hardest parts about running a tournament is getting people to register and pay. Since it's inception almost 10 years ago, we have registered and collected payment for thousands of golfers! The registration porthole is a complimentary service to whose who purchase our tournament package. The best part? We cover all related credit card fees associated with each transaction,as our donations back to your charity! Third party companies offer this service but charge anywhere between $10 to $20 per head, which means you can pay anywhere up to $800 in credit card fees.
We realize you have a full time job and organizing a golf tournament is not it! We can setup your event in about a half an hour when provided with all required information. Once complete, our events team will provide you with hyper-links that can be sent out to your participants directing them to your online registration. Each time a registration is processed, the tournament organizer(s), the Proshop and the participant will all receive confirmation emails, updating all parties with the required information.
Our team is your team. We are here for you... Our professional, friendly attentive staff can look after your every need. Whether it is our marshal’s setting contests on the course or tee gifts on the carts, our golf professionals giving a clinic on our new world class driving range, or our Pro Shop staff looking after the boss’ club rentals you can relax and enjoy your day.
Memorable meals, a variety of options... Our reputation for food service is second to none and our Executive Chef can work within everyone’s budget. Whether it is a causal BBQ after a 9 hole event or a 3 course dinner for 450 people, we offer great service, served on time hot and delicious.
We offer two beautiful locations for your meal and prize presentation. Our spacious screened (heated) and covered patio which can seat up to 450 or our elegant air-conditioned Dining Room which can sit up to 120. Our experienced, professional staff will work with you to create a memorable event.
