Welcome to the Ottawa Out Golfing Group (OOGG)! The OOGG is a friendly, recreational golf league for lesbian women, gay men, bisexual and transgendered persons, and their supporters, of all skills and abilities—beginner through to expert. The OOGG plays golf weekdays and weekends at courses in and around Ottawa and Gatineau from mid-April through to the end of October. Email invites are sent out approximately one week in advance of any given round of golf and you are asked to confirm your intent to play 2-3 days in advance. The coordinator confirms, with those registered, the teeoff times and the course.

The Group is a recreational golf league. You can keep score if you want to, but the goal and purpose of the OOGG is to have fun in a relaxed and comfortable atmosphere with other gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered golfers, and their supporters.

The skill level of the golfers within the OOGG varies dramatically. There are several golfers who regularly shoot in the 70s. Most golfers shoot in the 90s and 100+. Golfers are, therefore, grouped into foursomes arbitrarily; as different golfers with different skill levels show up for each round of golf.

Because the golfers can change each week, there is a good chance you will have the opportunity to meet and golf with new people each week. You may also find golfers who will be interested in playing golf outside of OOGG-sanctioned events.

There is also a social aspect to the OOGG. Several times each season members get together for a meal or celebration. Check out our upcoming events for information about our next social gatherings.

There are no registration or membership fees to join the Group. You only need to cover your green fees, and any other expenses you would normally have to cover at the golf course (i.e., power cart, pull cart, food, drinks, etc.).
If the OOGG is for you and you want to register with this friendly group of golf enthusiasts, please contact the coordinator at 1-888-484-9118, ext.101, or rmeagher@istar.ca. You will be added to the email distribution list and receive invites to all future rounds of golf and events. All that’s left to do is to tee it up!
