A Great Course to Play

We had a great experience playing at this. The course is not too long, but has plenty of challenges. My, an older gentleman appreciates this aspect of the course. Also, it was in very good condition.

A nice place to play

Ottawa is always one of my favorite courses in the area to play. It's a beautiful course, and it was in better shape than I've seen in quite awhile, for the most part. The rough was thick, the fairways were soft. Some of the greens could use some work, #11 has been pretty bad for years, but a lot of that comes down to players not fixing ball marks. I will say it's gotten pretty expensive over the years, you can probably find better value for your money. There are a couple nicer courses you can play in the area for the same money you pay at Ottawa. But still a great place to go.

Gem of course

Are there some banged up greens and fairways,? Yes Are you smack dab in the middle of Toledo? Unfortunately, also yes.
Played here with my 8 year old and had deer/buck crossing and grazing on almost every hole. We see bucks here almost every time we play. It’s wild. Right in the middle of the city.
The course is old. Oldest course east of NYC as a matter of fact, but it just plays beautifully. The holes flow into one another nicely and the scenery is gorgeous at every turn.
Couple real sneaky par 3’s under 100yd that seem so easy but prove challenging every time.
Several drivable par 4’s make for some fun eagle chips/putts which of course, I’ll miss, as well as the follow up birdie most likely, but hey, “Drove the green” sounds pretty good.
Look, you should be playing here, plain and simple. You can’t beat the value and quality of golf you’ll get.

Keep it tight, y’all.

Very chill

Course was in good shape. Couple of rough greens but nothing terrible. No waiting the entire round and great weather. Shot a 81 which is a personal best.
Going back tomorrow.

Close this course

This place is a absolute embarrassment… Tee times set for 6:05 am and no workers show up til 6:35 am.. 20 golfers sitting around waiting…. Big huge dead spots on all the greens and fairways.. tee box’s all chewed up and have the Gaul to charge 42.00 per person for a crap course on terrible condition and from the tips is still under 6,000 yards
One par 3 played 42 yards and all under 85 yards.!!!!!!
Worst golf experience ever …. A total waste of time… played tons of better course for half that price…..

Fair

Course was in good shape not a lot of weeds very big greens but not much slope to them. Just found the par threes are very short and didn’t seem like I would spend $40 or more to play it again

Excellent Greens, buuuut…

Nice challenging short course. No Marshall to regulate pace of play. Too many hole jumpers. Happened too many times. Greens we’re in great shape, but no one fixes their pitch marks and there were way too many people playing from the Blue/white tee boxes and only hit the ball 50 yards. Should’ve been on the reds.

Fun short course

Ottawa is fun. It is a short course. If you want to work on your irons and short game it is a great course. The staff is friendly. They do not have a driving range but they do have a chipping/putting green. They have a nice selection of craft beer. I hate holes 17 and 18. They get me every time.
