What If?
The Township of Nepean’s Council, in December of 1939, passed the planning
committee’s recommendation that McKellar Golf Course be preserved for
recreation. Imagine how valuable tnat pieve pof real estate for a golf course
would be today?
So that’s our theory on how golf balls ended up in the soil in the McKellar Park
area. Much the same as golfers lose golf balls today, errant golf balls found
during housing construction and by homeowners preparing gardens and
flowerbeds are simply guiding us back to a day when golf was played at the
McKellar Park Golf Club in the west end of the current City of Ottawa.
Much time has passed since the doors at McKellar Park Golf Club closed for
good but long memories, and history itself will always be testament to its
existence. You may not be able to tee it up there any more, but fine times on its
fairways can still be cherished by those who had them, nonetheless.
One can only wonder how much of a bigger part it may have played in the story
of golf in the region if it still existed. With respect though, it it’s brief life it seems
to still have added a pretty strong chapter.
