R ecognized as one of Canada's Top 100 Golf Courses by SCOREGolf Magazine, Rideau View provides golfers with a challenging yet fair test of
golf, set within an oasis of rural tranquility.
A well manicured championship golf course with rolling
terrain and spectacular vistas, Rideau View offers a peaceful atmosphere surrounded by nature.
With six sets of tees ranging from 4,970 yards to 7,000 yards, the course is playable for golfers of all skill levels.
For the past 10 years, Rideau View has retained the services of noted Canadian golf architect, Ian Andrew, to oversee and advise on both minor and major projects to continually
improve the golf course each and every year.
Old friends returning to Rideau View marvel at how beautifully the
course has matured. Years of tree planting, a complete bunker
renovation and excellent turf-care practices have sculpted and
nurtured a truly challenging championship golf course.

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.

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.
Attire on and off the golf course should be of acceptable, smart casual style. Acceptable attire on the golf course includes:
Smart casual and clean denim are acceptable in all areas of the Clubhouse. If you have any questions or uncertainty concerning the Dress Code, please ask the member who is bringing you to our club.
