Great Approach and Finish

The staff at club drop/cart pick up were awesome and helpful with co-vid protocol steps. Pro shop reception, all staff were pleasant. The pace of play was excellent despite the multiple carts for groups. Monday afternoon gold should always be this relaxing.

Beautiful

The course is not long but narrow. This punishes offline drives. The greens are tough but roll true and fast. I loved the elevated tees, every shot felt like a bomb. The staff were wonderful.

Natural beauty

Beautiful surroundings for a course carved out of the natural surroundings. Greens were fast but the views made up for it.

Nice!!! And tight

Play well here and you can play anywhere.
Was told it was tight, and it is, cut through forested and varied terrain. Not much water .
Some superb cliff top elevated tees but not much bail out room on the edges.
Leave the driver in the bag, hit it straight and it plays fair but several greens tilt severely so need your approach game to be good. Some of the fairway edges were dry, hard and bare but greens were excellent. Given the recent weather the course was well conditioned. Deep white sand bunkers were a treat to play out of and show thoughtful course maintenance. Carts, signage, and paths were well maintained.
Good value and much nicer ambience than other mid price tracks in Muskoka.

Tee off decks are beat up

Played the white tees which was still a challenge for a 15 hdcp. First hole is the hardest because the green is supet slow compared to the practice green and hard to read. Staff was friendly,
Not much grass on the tee decks. All beat up. Had to back up 10-15 feet to find grass footing. Layout is great.
Its gone downhill since i played it last year. Took 4 . 5 hours to play. Not sure of i wil be back again

Needs New Ownership!!

This course used to be the jewel of the Muskoka's and now it's the worst course in the Muskoka's. Staff changes constantly, the course is beat up and run down with lots of bare spots. It's not a friendly atmosphere, but that is not the staff's fault. Won't play this course again unless new ownerdhip takes over and puts some money into it.

The course is set in the Canadian Shield with tree lined fairways.

I enjoyed my first round here and I am planning on it a regular stop when on I on vacation in the area.

Best Value in Muskoka

Always love playing NGR. I have played several of the top courses in Muskoka, and NGR is by far the best value for money in terms of scenery, course quality etc. The elevated tees are beautiful with the rocky terrain of the Canadian shield marbled throughout.
