At Rocky Crest, situated at the north end of Lake Joseph, golf architect Thomas McBroom has sculpted another spectacular course out of the Canadian Shield of Muskoka. Framed by forest of pine, white birch and hemlock, the fairways are accented by deep bunkers and granite outcroppings that provide definition and challenge. Opened in 2000, Rocky Crest is commanding attention based on a strong debut season.

Favourite Course north of Barrie

This course never lets me down. I have so many favourite holes on this course. The 6th par 5 from the tips is a must. The 8th par 3 into or with a cross wind is extremely tough. The 12th par 5 with the pond all along the last 200 yards to the green. But my most favourite is the par 5 18th hole. Your first shot must carry the fescue and if you are far enough to look down the fairway on your 2nd shot, the view of the log cabin clubhouse is spectacular.
About the conditions. The course was is very good shape considering all of the recent rain. Cart paths were a must and the pace of play was obviously slower at about 4-1/2 hours due to walking across the wet and wide fairways. Greens and sand traps were in pretty good shape and they were still fast. Staff are excellent here. A must play if you have never been here before.

The gem of the Muskokas

A golfers course, eminently walkable and playable. The holes at Rocky are carved out of beautiful mid Ontario woodlands and Canadian shield rock. Holes are largely free from viewing each other, leaving a sense of being on your own private hole, 18 times. Greens are devilishly contoured, and generally shaved to 10+ demanding concentration. Fairways are a mix of tight and bit more open, demanding every club in the bag. A beautiful, private/resort experience... Can't miss.
