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.
