Ottawa Sun

The Ottawa Sun Rookie of the Year is awarded to one Slammer per year, based on achievements in their first year on Tour with specific considerations, including the following:
  • Sportsmanship on the course
  • Participation in golf and social events
  • Statistical achievements
  • Positive attitude off course
  • Overall contribution to the tour

The Ottawa Sun Rookie of the Year is not only a champion, but now an ambassador for the Slammer Tour.

As always, first-year Slammer Tour membership is free for rookies, so make sure you spread the word. This key honour is awarded at the season-end Slammies, the Tour's official awards ceremony.

Thanks to The Ottawa Sun for their ongoing support of the Slammer Tour!
