Beautiful course. Great layout. However the staff are not the nicest people. There was no drink cart the 2 times I've played. And slow players don't let you play thru and people behind you hit the ball to where your waiting even though your waiting for the group that's ahead of you. Also no marshal to police this.

Had planned all summer to try to play but 2hr plus drive just never did. Finally got there and enjoyed the views. Friendly staff. We knew in advance the greens had been aerated but staff said they were sand filled which we found they hadn't been. Very hard to get a good role bit that's just the time of year for that maintenance. Some really awesome views on the holes. Found fairways a bit tight for my liking bit one does have to hot it straight don't we.

Had a wonderful round of golf at North Granite Ridge Golf Course. It was a warm sunny day in late October. Course was is great shape for late October. It was a very windy day and as a result there were a lot of leaves blowing around the course esp. on the greens which made it difficult to find our balls. Even so we had a great round and would definitely choose this course again.

Our plans were that the round was to be a birthday celebration for our son and his friend. Perfect weather, perfect course, memorable experience. Unfortunately, this was not the case. Upon arriving, we were informed by the owner/marshal that we had 30 minutes to play the first 4 holes, as a tournament had a shotgun start on hole #5. We were playing "best ball" as teams and it was still impossible to do. The owner met us on the fifth hole and a rude, unprofessional, confrontation ensued. Needless to say, the "round" was memorable for all the wrong reasons!!

From the time i arrived. I experienced nothing but first class and friendly service from the staff. I went there alone and was partnered with 3 other golfers. It was nothing but positive playing with these guys. Two were very good golfers and all of us agreed that this is a beautiful course was very challenging and very scenic we actually had to stop and look at two deer strolling by. There was even a clock on one of the holes indicating where you should be at when you first teed of we were right on time great feature. If you ever plan on golfing up here north granite ridge golf club is a must to play

North Granite Ridge is a picturesque golf course. It is somewhat difficult. We had a great time. The pace of play was slow.

We had an issue with the fellow at the pro shop when we arrive to pay our green fees. I had arranged the round for my friend and I through Golfnow. Unfortunately The course did not have two tee spots available even though they had posted them on Golfnow. The fellow in the pro shop gave us a had time and was quite rude. We finally were allowed to tee off. Every one else at the course was polite and nice to deal with. I would recommend playing this course and hope the guy in the pro shop has a better day next time we go there.

i have been playing this course for a couple summer now and it never disappoints!! The clubhouse and the staff are wonderful. The course itself is top notch. Not a wet apot on the course. The sand in the bunkers was beautiful. The greens were firm and fast, yet rolled true. The price is more than reasonable ( I booked on golfnow and got an afternoon rate under $50). Wont find any better value in the Muskoka region.
