GOLFOMAX hosts fundraisers for the Ottawa Heart Institute:

We recently hosted a group of avid golfers playing at the Max. Their efforts resulted in raising $50,000 for the University of Ottawa Heart Institute.

GOLFOMAX owner joins OVGA Board:

In April 2019, Dru Lafave became the new Tournament Chairman of the Ottawa Valley Golf Association. “My primary focus will be to help grow the level of participation in all the OVGA tournaments in the region.” In 2022, he assumed the role as President. ” It has been an honor to support and promote amateur golf in the region. Always great to see keen golfers out trying to test their skills against their peers”. 


Our 25th anniversary Charity tournament scheduled for Eagle Creek in June 2020 had to be cancelled due to the covid pandemic. We celebrated our 20th anniversary Charity tournament in June 2015 at Kanata Golf Club. Many thanks to all our prize donors and sponsors, our volunteer staff, and all our 136 participants. Together we raised $14,000 for the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO) and the Ottawa Children’s Treatment Centre (OCTC).



With our 20th milestone season in 2015, we granted one of our longest playing patrons with an honorary lifetime membership. Mick, a former member at Hylands, passed away in May 2021 at the age of 93. He had been playing at the Max twice weekly since we opened in 1995. He probably played more rounds of golf and drank more coffee than anybody else during that time. After his rounds, he enjoyed his usual pint in the lounge with his buddies, telling tall stories about his golf game and past career in the Navy.

Mick joined Lloyd Swick, another long time patron who unfortunately past away in January 2017 at the age of 94. Lloyd was given an honorary membership in 2012, in part because he was a very sweet guy and always keen to work on improving his game. This was also in recognition of Lloyd being the driving force behind the War Animals Memorial unveiled at Confederation Park in November 2012.


GOLFOMAX owner Dru Lafave captured his second Kanata Senior Men’s Championship in August 2023 to go along with his win in 2017 when he also won the Match Play Championship and the Senior Net Match Play Championship.
