The Ottawa Valley Turfgrass Association (OVTA) was founded in 1972 when a group
directly involved with the turfgrass industry recognized the need for a local association.
Founding members established a forum through which they could encourage and support
research and interchange scientific and practical knowledge relating to the construction
and care of turfgrass areas as it pertained to their own environment. The OVTA initially
started with fewer than forty members and played host to one golf tournament each
year, the Fall Field day. Today, membership is over two hundred and in addition to the
annual Fall Field Day, the OVTA plays host to other tournaments and an annual
Winter/Spring Seminar and Tradeshow.
