Rock out crops, and elevation changes are a nice addition to a round of golf through this majestic landscape.

Played today. Perfect weather, although a little buggy. Course is in amazing shape. Bunkers still need some work, but the course is in really good shape. It only gets better as seaon progresses especially. Try and play early in day during the summer months. Can get busy. Must play course.

Challenging course with beautiful views owing to frequent elevation changes. I play this well maintained course often and find the greens consistent from hole to hole and reasonably quick during the summer months. Hit it straight if you want to score well on this Muskoka jewel!

The clubhouse is very nice although the drinks are a little pricey and the hours of operation erratic at times.

North Granite Ridge is a challenging and stunning layout with many extreme elevations and accompanying views, granite outcroppings and deer encounters.

A must play in Muskoka and definitely worth the price of admission !

They bookway to many groups tightly together at one point there way 4 groups waiting to play on one hole. It wasn't from anyone playing to slow either . They also have clocks with a sign saying that you should play at a specific pace .

It's not the players faults it's the stupid golf course booking people to tightly.

Second the price at this course is way over priced for comparable courses in the area.

An attractive course, well maintained and challenging enough. Nothing unique about the conditions, layout or amenities though.

The topography is typical of some northern Ontario courses with dramatic undulations and elevated tee boxes.

Would play again but not looking into it anytime soon.

I used to be a member here and would still be if it was closer. I do find it to be a very difficult course. It's definitely a lefty's course unless you can master the draw. Narrow fairways and tough greens with lots of undulations. As much as I love this course, I never felt good enough to play it and went from a 12 handicap to an 18. That said, beautiful vistas, pretty forest with no houses, great staff and clubhouse.

Worth trying if you love great scenery, changes in elevation, and ARE STRAIGHT OFF THE TEE. Not for those who hook or slice, but for everyone else, a real treat to play.

Greens are great, course lay-out is really nice with scenic vistas. Course is not long and you really don't need a driver too often. However, you better be accurate as many fairways are tight. Great course will play it again soon.

It was a Saturday afternoon, approaching the magically "twilight" hour when I finished up what I was doing and logged onto GolfNow to see what courses were in the area. I had heard of the obvious Deerhurst, Taboo, etc in the Huntsville & Bracebridge area but had not put North Granite Ridge on my radar. At $50 for 18 holes and a cart plus another $4 for my bucket of balls it was not the greatest twilight value but my given my experience I would have paid double that. The last golfers out were at 3:00pm and my time was 3:45pm. I pegged up a ball on the first tee and never saw another sole the entire round. The course is beautiful as it winds through trees and granite giving you the true Canadian North feeling of golfing in Muskoka. At each hole sits 2 Muskoka chairs were you can sit and ponder the next tee ball.

The bottom line, this is a hidden gem and a great value for money given the experience. I will be back for sure!
