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.
