Very much improved!!!

I have played this course my entire life. Been in a league here for the past twenty years. Hands down Ottawa Park Golf Course is in the best shape I have ever seen it!! Hats off to Davey Tree for making the golf course part of Toledo’s “Central Park” a thing of beauty.

Great public course

This is a great short little public course. Shortness doesn’t make it easy.
Very well maintained. usually the pace of play is good.

Amazing historic course and in really great shape!!

I play at this course at least a few times a year as it isn’t the longest course in the US but it will keep you honest. Actually it’s history is worth the trip on its own. The course has lots of trees, and tight fairways so you have to play attention to how your playing but the course won’t punish you as the greens roll true and they are big enough for some forgiveness during the day. My confidence really needed Ottawa Park today and I would recommend this course to anyone.

On top of that the team is top notch. For a public course i’m not sure that I’ve ever had a better experience. Thank you for your hospitality!!

First time

If you want a pace of play that is good, might want to consider another course. Lots of hackers out there so it’s a true municipal course. Greens are good but fairways need some help in spots.

League rudeness

Was great until the back 9 and then we ran into the league players all trying to get in their free 9 holes before the league starts. One guy behind us was extremely rude. Walked up to us While we were on the tee box, beer in hand, and asked what are we doing? Said he didn’t know if we were playing 13 or 1. Well bud we can read. He was just completely rude about it and was so concerned about getting his free 9 holes of warm up golf in before the tournament started. And EVERYONE from that league went to the back 9 causing a huge bottleneck for people making the turn. I don’t know why the clubhouse would allow that. Just a bad experience in general. Don’t go on thursdays or you’ll have to deal with the privileged league players.

You can feel Toledo history

As a municipal course (priced accordingly) it is well maintained, staff are friendly and helpful,. Obviously during this COVID crisis the amenities are minimal.And my wife and I just love the course. As the original designer said back in 1899, "Nature just meant for there to be a golf course here" with the big elevation changes, the hills and valleys, makes it feel like there are 3 different courses within its 18 holes.

History and value

The staff was great, very helpful and supportive. We enjoyed the time we were on the course. The clubhouse was nice and clean. It was fun playing this course with my son. This is an old course with lots of history. It is also awesome that it feels so secluded being right in the middle of the city. Overall, I would ould recommend this course as a great value and time.
