WHAT IS VISION 2020?
Vision 2020 represents our long-term goal which will be achieved upon one of our High Performance players representing Canada in the Summer Olympics.
- Matt Robinson, Director of Instruction and Program Development
Statistically, the average Olympic athlete reaches the world stage after a 10-year/10000 hour commitment to excellence. In 2010 the concept of Vision 2020 was born. We will utilize the tools, information and Best Practices we have adopted from world leaders in Long Term Athletic Development to nurture the athlete and provide them with the guidance, support and environment where they can truly test their individual athletic and personal potential.
Vision 2020 includes programs and coaching tracks for both Juniors and Adults, males and females, novices and internationally competitive athletes. Regardless of YOUR personal goals and ambitions there is a coaching track that is designed for YOU to attain and fulfill YOUR goals.
It is interesting to note that the Robinson/Sherratt long standing approach to Junior Golf development has paralleled many of the philosophies that have only recently come to light through the latest research. Industry leaders have gathered data and findings over the last ten years from experts around the world in diverse fields which have only now quantified our approach. Our instincts were correct.

WOW WOW WOW - Richard and I really do not know what else to say to you and your amazing staff with regards to our wedding. Right from the beginning you made me feel super comfortable and confident in the facility and your staff. You were more than patient with all the questions and visits. Hats off to CHEF - she ROCKS! To be honest the best part was I did not worry about a thing. You guys took care of everything. Little details like the candles, filling the candy bar, asking if the kids needed different meals. Kristie even straightened my dress train out as I was making my entrance - seriously - you guys are ridiculous! I never really had dreams of what my wedding would look like, but I know this is even better than anything I could have possibly imagined. Seriously, amazing! A BIG HUGE MASSIVE THANK YOU!
I want to thank Jason, Chef Stef and the staff last night for doing an amazing job in helping us celebrate my wife's special birthday. My guests raved about the food, the level of service and the overall professionalism of the entire staff. We are fortunate to have such a dedicated staff at our club and I wouldn't hesitate to host another function at our club.
I wanted to commit in writing my sincere praise for Jason and his staff for the role they played in making the day so eventful. Given the ceremony was held outside on the patio, with the guests seated to look down the 18th fairway, the setting was spectacular. Warm sunshine, colorful trees, green manicured lawns and fairways. The interior seating and decor (for about 150 guests) was smartly designed. The meal was delicious. Very delicious. The servers and bar staff, all friendly and efficient. Jason, worked with Lydia and the wedding planner for weeks leading up to the event. He was most helpful, very accommodating, with terrific ideas and suggestions. It could not have been any better. The compliments from the guests throughout the evening echoed the same. Several in fact, saying it was the best wedding celebration they had ever attended.
In keeping with Blue Jays excitement, Jason hit a walk-off home run, to the delight of all in attendance. We are most appreciative to Jason (and his staff) in helping make this important event so memorable.

We take pride in Rideau View being first and foremost a “Golfers’ Golf Club.” The golf course, game improvement facilities and instructional programs are our top priority. They have been created to enable all members to enjoy the game of golf, whether they are juniors getting their first taste of the game, seasoned competitive veterans, or families.
Consistent with our goal to be the top golf experience in Eastern Ontario and Western Quebec, Rideau View allocates close to $1 million annually for maintenance and improvements to our golf course and practice facilities. Under the watchful eyes of Gord MacMillan, our Course Superintendent for almost 30 years, and consulting golf architect Ian Andrew, Rideau View has earned a coveted place in SCOREGolf Magazine’s Top 100 Courses in Canada!
A big part of enjoying the game for many golfers is working on their game and improving. Paul Sherratt (Head Professional), Matt Robinson (Director of Instruction and Program Development), and Tim Sewter (Assistant Professional), have designed a full suite of game improvement programs for juniors, adults and families. Six years ago, Rideau View invested in a $250,000 state-of-the-art Teaching and Club Fitting Centre to give Paul and his staff the tools necessary for a first-class learning experience.
While golf is our priority, being a part of the Rideau View community also means the opportunity to enjoy social activities every month throughout the season, including our popular Saturday Nine & Dines, mixed golf/dinner events, themed dinners, like our Beer/Wine Food Pairing Evening, and much more.
The cornerstone of our social activities and clubhouse experience is our Food & Beverage team, led by Taylor Kohlman, our Clubhouse Manager, and Head Chef Tyler MacLeod. Their creations range from tasty classics to imaginative offerings that would please any foodie.
At Rideau View, we understand many golfers in their 20s, 30s and 40s have busy schedules and financial demands that can stress personal and family budgets. Tuition, summer jobs, embarking on new careers, buying homes and growing families can all impact the ability to afford recreational activities such as golf.
In recognition of this reality, we introduced two creative concepts to our membership structure two years ago.
First, we created a group of new Family categories to provide parents the chance to golf with their kids and enjoy learning the game together. The Family categories have three tiers for the parents to satisfy a range of golfing needs. Regardless of the Family category, Junior members play for free.
As a result, Family memberships have increased to more than 35 families over the past two years: that works out to 70 parents and 66 juniors!
Second, we created a progressive dues schedule with small, easily absorbed increments each year, from our Junior membership through age 46 in our Senior category. Without the worry of a large increase of thousands of dollars in any given year or over a short period, this makes financial planning for membership at a top tier private golf club much easier to incorporate into your personal budget.
More than 130 Intermediates at Rideau View are already taking advantage of this member-friendly feature which allows them to make membership at one of Canada’s top private clubs a reality.
I firmly believe if you take the time to experience firsthand what Rideau View has to offer, you will understand why our members are so proud to be part of a welcoming community built on the foundation of a first class, immaculately maintained golf course.
Come by the club and allow me to take you on a personal tour of #rideauviewlife and explore our various membership options that could make Rideau View a part of your life.
Please contact me to arrange your tour.
Rideau View Golf Club
As you may know, Rideau View is first and foremost a "Golfers' Golf Club". The golf course and practice facilities are our top priority. The golf course is currently rated #81 in Canada by SCOREGolf Magazine, #70 in Canada by Canadian Golf Magazine and #34 in Ontario by the Ontario Professional Golfers Association.

We are also recognized as having one of the leading Junior Golf programs in the country.
Be a welcoming golf club where members have the opportunity to:
On October 23, 1955 a group of 20 golf enthusiasts met in Ottawa at the home of Jack Snow, to discuss building a golf club for the Jewish community. Several more “parlour” meetings took place, and on September 18, 1956 the first annual general meeting of the Rideau View Country Club took place. At that historic meeting, 66 men made the formal decision to build a golf club. A ladies’ association was established in 1957.
Several committees were formed and swung into operation. A 200-acre parcel of land near Manotick, Ontario was purchased, and several prominent businessmen volunteered their time, expertise and business acumen to make the venture a success. Charter members were those who joined before August 1, 1957.
