The Ontario Federation of School Athletic Associations (OFSAA) and the Golf Association of Ontario (GAO) have reached an agreement to enhance the student-athlete experience at the OFSAA Boys’ Golf Championships.
As part of the agreement (spanning July 1, 2014 – May 31, 2016) the GAO will provide official starters, and four officials to OFSAA Golf Championships to help enforce and interpret rules of golf and pace of play, and organize pairings on day two of competition. Officials will work with the host committee to mark the course prior to the OFSAA tournament and will be present at the coaches’ meeting to answer questions.
GAO officials will also be responsible for tournament scoring and work alongside the Championship convenor to record and post the scores on the OFSAA website. Officials will also assist OFSAA to determine par, course yardage, hole locations, course markings, and other local rules.
OFSAA is pleased to welcome GAO officials to our Championship and look forward to working together in promoting high school golf.
2014 OFSAA Golf takes place October 15-16.
