CP Women’s Open tournament director praises Ottawa Hunt Club superintendent for outstanding course conditions

Course had sustained heavy tree damage in May

Although South Africa’s Paula Reto won last weekend’s CP Women’s Open, perhaps the real star was the Ottawa Hunt Club. The golf course had sustained heavy damage following a May 21 storm that saw 1,100 trees come down.

Superintendent Eric Ruhs and his team got to work immediately afterwards to clean up the mess and restore the golf course to LPGA Tour standards in time for the event which some suggest as the Tour’s sixth major.

Tournament conditions saw fast greens, top-notch fairways and difficult rough.

Tournament director Ryan Paul praised Ruhs for the job he did in getting the golf course ready for the Open, adding May’s storm damage wasn’t even apparent.


The CP Women’s Open will be played next year at Shaughnessy in Vancouver.
