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.

For more information on the OVTA, please feel free to contact one of our Board of Directors.
