The Week Ahead:

  • Aug. 23 - Championship Saturday at Outaouais Golf Club in Rockland

The Ottawa Sun Scramble began in 2005 with an Open and Senior event at Eagle Creek Golf Club.

The weeklong tournament now offers 10 two-round partner divisions plus the Regimbal Media Challenge and four qualifying events. The tournament is conducted by local golf promotion company, ClubEG (www.executivegolf.ca), and is a scramble format where both players take a shot and use the better of the two from the tee box, on the fairway, in bunkers and on the green.
