Super short but super fun

Although this is a very short course it is one of the more fun courses to play in the area. Hills and trees everywhere will make you think about all shots. This could be a really nice course if the people in charge of running it would just take care of it. Bunkers are not sand but hard dried up dirt. Greens have dead spots. Grass randomly not cut all over the place. Like I said love the character of this place but they need to take a little pride in the place.

Nice track

Challenging course for how short it plays. Tight fairways and plenty of trees to hit. There are a couple driveable par 4s if you can keep it straight off the tee. Overall fun course to play.

Beautiful course!!

We have golfed this course several times. And as always it's beautiful! Take the time to think about it being built in 1899.

Short

The course is pretty short, but very enjoyable to play. Doesn't handle rain water very well so if has rained in the passed 2 days or so expect some backsplash from iron shots. Greens are a touch slow, fairways are nice, and the rough is thick. Play in the evenings to enjoy the wildlife.

Fun course

I always enjoy this course. It has elevation changes on many holes. It is a short, target shoot type of a course, which is different from what I normally play. It makes it enjoyable to go for it with risk, or lay up with Precision shots to ensure a par with A good look at birdie. Course was in good shape. Greens were on the slow side but the ball rolled smoothly.

Nostalgic visit to Ottawa Park GC

I used to play Ottawa Park growing up, and it had been 30+ years since I played there. OPGC is short but it has plenty of trees to challenge you on the driveable par 4's. The par-5 4th is a favorite: reachable in 2 with perfect shots to a semi-blind green, or bail out to a narrow layup area on the left. The 3 finishing holes are all challenging, especially #18 from the tips. On the downside, several of the fairways had pretty thin turf, possibly recovering from flood damage. Our twosome played 18 in 3 hours on a Saturday afternoon, very light traffic on the course. The course is very walkable and a great place to take a beginner. All in all, my return visit was well worth it, and I won't wait another 30 years to go back!

Classic old municipal course....

for a chance to play a classic 1899 course with character and challenges on every hole come to OP designed by SP Jermain and visit the bronze statue/sundial memorial near the clubhouse.

Return to the birth place

I first played this course 60 years ago and mowed its greens in summers while in college. A short masterpiece of design on woody terrain. It started my career in Turfgrass. A joy to revisit with an old friend.

Always a great course

Ottawa Park is one of my favorite courses in the Toledo area. It is a fun course with elevated tees and greens, some challenging holes with hills, but also some wide open holes where you can grip it and rip it!

Great course, especially for young players

Ottawa Park is one of my favorites, and it rarely disappoints. The course is exciting, the greens are nice, and the par 3's make you wish for a hole-in-one every time. I used to play here all the time in high school and it really helped me develop a strong game. Since then, I have played it numerous times every season and it is just downright fun. Highly recommended to players of all skill levels.

Nice Muni course.

Nice Municipal course. Nothing more or less. Had not played here in a while. For time of year it was in decent shape. Very short course. Only slightly longer than 5000 yards. Play early to avoid longer rounds.

Played the course yesterday. Horribly overbooked. Took my wife and I 5+ hours to play. What a joke. Poor management and conditions. I use to play it as a kid and like to play it once a year for nostalgia even though I now live an hour away. And to top if off some old guy playing in the foursome ahead of us left with is group to go to the clubhouse after nine. So my wife and I move up to prepare to tee off on #10. But a few minutes later the old guy comes blasting up, says "sorry" and tees up to hit. I kept my cool but obviously this jerk doesn't have any golf or social etiquette. Not sure I will be back to play what could be a quality course.

Course of play too slow.

Course of play too slow. Need rangers out there to move players along. Inexperienced golfers think they can hit a ball 300 yards and only hit it 100.

Short tricky

The course is very nice and tight. If you miss a fairway, it will hurt you. It would have been nice if they blew the leaves away from green and tee box consistently during the heavy portion of the late fall.

Good course but short

I played this course on a Sunday morning. Very few other golfers on the course. Course was in good condition. I played from the back tees and it was still a pretty short course. Fairways were fairly narrow, but in good shape. Yardage markers were scarce. The front nine and back nine are intertwined and directions on the course could be improved. Overall, this would be a good course for a short hitter.
