Hidden Gem found in Port Sydney

The quality of this course could be compared to other high end courses in Huntsville (Deerhurst Highland and Grandview), but much less $$$ out of pocket. We were able to get a deal at $55 Can each with cart, for this beautifully designed course. The layout was very good to excellent. I decided to play the white tee blocks with the 2 other men who joined us rather than playing the Blue. Don't believe there was that much difference between the blocks overall that would have affected the outcome of my score. I struggled hitting my shots straight to the left on several holes to start and paid the price with a couple of lost balls and a few punch shots. The fairways are normal widths with your typical rough but the tree lines are thick and lots of shrubbery at their base, making it difficult at times to locate your balls. So I struggled for a 7 handicapper and shot +9 on front (ouch), then played very well until 18 where I double bogeyed again for a final +12. My wife played well shooting steady down the middle with a 96. Pretty good for a 30-32 handicapper. Greens were very tough and fast. Basically there is no flat shots on these greens. Sand traps were great with plenty of soft sand. If you have time, bring a camera as there are some great views along this course. Minimal amount of water with a few streams.

Good course for the $, needs improvement

Not one service or beverage cart on the course all afternoon, not even the turn hut was open to serve food or beers. Disappointed in that way. Good course otherwise though.

Scenic course

We were able to get a very good deal. The weather prediction was poor, so we had the course to ourselves. It is a challenging course with some interesting holes. The greens were very good, but the tees and fairways could have been better. There were some stupid pins on hills, but many courses don’t seem to recognize weekend players would appreciate easier pin placements. Overall a good golf experience.

Possibly the best conditioned and most challenging greens in Muskoka.

Really enjoyed a fast game on a tough course in really good shape. We will be back for more this golf season.

Beautiful & Challenging Course

My decision to play this course was based on the positive feedbacks that I read about this course, and they are correct. Beautiful course that winds through lush forest and elevation changes. Would love to play this course in the fall when the leaves turn.

Pretty, challenging course in Muskoka

North Granite Ridge is a good, challenging course. The pace of play was a bit slow but overall decent. The layout and greens were interesting and challenging. We were happy to have a cart because the holes are spaced quite far apart. Overall a good round.

Beautiful course but no staff!

It was a very slow round due to the number of 4somes in front of us - novice golfers to say the least and no Marshall on the course as usual. The course really is beautiful and in very good shape given the lack of rain this summer - greens are running slow due to overwatering.
