I grew up playing the Royal Ottawa. It's a classic course, with both big and small hills that can cause some stress in the game. While #1 is a shorter par 5, it is very tight entry hole. The 8th hole is one of the tougher holes I've played. On the back 9, the 13th and 15th are fantastic par 4s. And the finishing hole with that clubhouse is one of the most beautiful anywhere.
The course could use a few more traps or water hazards. It could benefit from some added length.
