Improvement

Good day to golf. Fairways getting better. Rough a little long. Some dry grass here and there. Greens were solid with difficult pin placements. Need a beer cart. All that said a big improvement from last year. Equipment is running. Will play here again.

Great pace of play

This course had a great pace of play. We were able
To do 18 without having to wait for anyone. The course is in decent condition. We were playing while they were mowing so there were clumps of grass on the fairways but other than that everything was great. Will definitely play again!

Detwiler Park Golf Course, Toledo, Oh

I made it a point to play this course today before bringing my group here.....we used to play here regularly and liked this Arthur Hills layout a lot, but the previous management group left it in poor condition, and last year's rainy spring put the new group "behind the 8 ball" until July. I've heard nothing but horror stories about the condition of the course. ever since.... So, I wanted to see for myself.

Fortunately, I can give it a positive review! The fairways and rough were mowed (and I saw workers continuing to mow as I played), and the greens were smooth, if a little on the slow side. I should mention that I played two days after we have had quite heavy spring rains in the area. There was evidence of some type of chemical treatment on every green as well, so the new management seems to be taking all the right steps to bring this fine course back to its former glory!

Is the course as good as it's GOING TO BE.....? Not quite, but it appears to me that it's well on its way back, and I plan to begin playing here regularly again!

Unfortunately it's still a little early in the season. Fairways were extremely long. However, the most disappointing thing was they said we could play the back 9 but literally didnt have pins in the holes. I called and asked about it in after the first hole, they said technically it's closed. Then as we are getting done with hole 18 they finally put the pins in.

Greens had decent speed, definitely beat up.

They had a severe drainage issue on the back nine which basically flooded two hole. Issue has been resolved and the back nine is open.

Course in good shape

The only complaint I have would be they left alot of the grass clippings in the rough so it was very hard to find your ball, even if it was just off the fairway. Besides that, course was in good shape.

Gone to the Dogs

I have been playing Detwiler golf course since I was 19 yrs. old I'm now 65 and I have never seen a course go this far down hill. I have played this course in many different tournaments and it was almost pro quality, now you can't determined were the crab grass ends and the tee boxes and fairways start, every aspect of this course has been let go except for the greens that are at least playable, who ever is responsible for this should be fined the amount of money it would take to repair it and then never be allowed to touch a golf course again.

What Happened?

What happened to this golf course, I have played this course for 40 yrs. it was always in almost pristine condition.I played this about 5 yrs ago and it was the way I remember it. Not now it is trashed, can't tell were the fairways are or the rough course totally dried out, weeds everywhere,Tee boxes were weeds, but the greens were the only thing taken care of, please don't lose Toledo, Arthur Hills gem, save it and hurry or it may be over.

What a disappointment.

I have played this golf course sense I was 19 yrs. old I am now 65 yrs. old, I do not know what happened to this course but it has been destroyed, this was a professional golf coarse, perfect tees, beautiful fairways, awesome and fast greens, not any more. Toledo should be ashamed of what they let happened to this golf course. This was a gem, a Author Hills masterpiece gone to the dogs. Toledo does not have a problem giving money to Jeep fest but can't support a former wonderful golf course and it's park system, let jeep support jeep and lets get some support for the golf course systems in Toledo including Ottawa Park

Don't waste your time!!!

Course isn't cut. The fairways were as long as rough. Hit drives down the middle and still couldn't find it. Greens were the slowest I've ever putted on and dead in multiple spots. Driving range is closed what looked like for good. Just terrible conditions overall. Ownership opened the course before it was ready and lost my business for good. Also for anyone who drinks on the course they don't offer beer sales either.

First round

Played this course for the first time, not too busy but it is middle of October. You can tell it's a work in progress and that they are doing their best to get it up to par. A couple rough dead spots on the greens but not horrible, rough and fairway were decent, will definitely be back to see the progress next year. All staff was very friendly and accommodating, thanked me for repairing ball mark on 9th green, told them I like Ottawa Park's motto of leave the course better then you found her. This will be an amazing course within a few years. Met JP from Collins Park Course and enjoyed a conversation and then went to play that course as well. Good job!

1st Time This Year

I am surprised this course is not packed every weekend. Excellent lay out. Tough pin locations for a weekend. Greens in excellent shape. Nice work on 14 fairway. Should be in great shape for Toledo Am. Fairways need cut for more roll. Páce of play great. Enjoyed my round of golf

Winter Rust

A select crew of us have been travelling south to play here during the winter months for years. They always seem to put the course to bed in good condition leaving the greens mowed and moderately quick and the rest of the course cut as well. 2015 was a different story as the greens were horribly slow and bumpy (not in previous years) and you needed a machete to clear long grass on tee boxes. I have even seen the staff cut the greens in 36 degree temps to accommodate customers, standing out from the crowd. Wish they would resort back to their old ways as they have a unique winter golf experience for us northern folk.

Great course

The course is in great shape. The greens look great but play a little slow and very firm. the layout of the couse is pretty easy, not to much water and forgiving if you go right or left on most holes. Overall the course is great. I'm playing again in two days.

Unfortunate Predicament

I've played this course several times, many as a junior in tournaments. Always liked the layout, some long holes, with a good mix of challenging short holes. If this course was not in the location it is, it could be one of the best private course layouts in northwest Ohio. Unfortunately this course doesn't get the attention it deserves. The greens are fairly well maintained as well the fairways, but the rough suffers and is riddled with clover and crab-grass in many spots. Overall, one of my favorite courses in Toledo, I just wish it was as well maintained as some of the other courses. Keep it in the short grass and you won't be disappointed and require a foot-wedge for a playable lie.
