Challenging Layout

Course plays tougher than its slope suggests. Tight fairways leave no room for error. Once off the fairway, or over the green, the result is most often a lost ball. Greens were in great shape with plenty of challenge. The fairway distance markers were not accurate. A rangefinder or GPS is essential. The course layout book was helpful but lacked distances off the tee to recognizable features and only a few distances to the green, bunkers or hazards. The course was beginning to dry out leaving the fairways rock hard. You really need a few rounds on this track to get the feel for the best way to tackle it.

Pretty course.

Nice looking course carved out of the trees. Tight fairways, elevated undulating quick greens, sloping fairways, some large trees, and the odd boulder in middle of fairways make for some challenging course management. Nice facility all around. Greens in excellent shape. Good bunker sand. Course marshall somewhat overbearing in spite of completion of round in under 4 hours.

Beautiful scenery

This course is beautiful for the we . Surrounded by granite and forest. Very tight course so if you can’t hit it straight then the chances are you will lose your ball. Played on a hot humid day so the bugs were everywhere. There where dry areas on the course surprisingly even after all the rain in the previous weeks. Greens were in great shape.

Decent Course in Muskoka

Played here with the wife on a deal from Underpar.

Found the course decent with some nice holes. It was challenging but fair. My wife is a beginner and the course was good for her.

Thought the fairways weren’t in the greatest shape. Might be because of the high water in the area and heavy rainfalls, but having not played before I can’t compare it to usual conditions.

The greens also had some rough spots which interfered with putting.

Staff was generally nice although we found it a little annoying that they asked us on multiple occasions if we had alcohol in our bag. (We didn’t). Seems to be an issue at the course I guess, and there was some sort of bachelor party teeing up behind us, but we don’t come off as the partying type I’m sure.

Definitely bring some top end bug juice because they were horrible, very annoying whenever you stopped moving and a nuisance when putting or teeing off.

Also, course is not a member of the GAO so can’t submit score to Golf Canada.

Overall, the deal we got made it a decent price but their regular prices seem a little inflated, probably because of the location.

Would play again if in the area, but only with a deal.

Many, very scenic holes. Great value.

Played this very scenic course under a cloudless sky. Cart path only on three holes after the recent rain. The fairways and greens were in excellent shape; new sand in all the traps. Looking from the very elevated tee on #3 is like an A.J. Jackson painting of the Muskoka landscape with the trees and the granite. Very few golfers on the course in the late morning when we played. We finished in 4hrs 15 mins.
"Must play" course in the area.

Take the Challenge

A very challenging course, not because of length or hazards, but dog legs, up hill approaches, guarded greens. Looks way on the score card but it will challenge your handicap , no matter the level . Traps are fluffy and well maintained. Fairways a bit thin, but it is early in their season. Greens flawless and have enough movement in them to challenge any Scotty Thompson stick.Try this course , you will like it a lot.

Great course

Got a great deal with Golfnow. I swear we were the only 2 on course. Unfortunately course does not belong to golf Canada so couldn’t enter reasonable score.
Course was in perfect condition after a lot of rain. A few holes were cart path only but otherwise excellent

We love the coarse however 2 of our people have yet to play the back nine because of coarse maintenance,we understand there has to be maintenance but it would of been nice to know ahead and see if we want to chose this coarse or not.
Understanding that you are a third party somehow we should know ahead of time before we book

Thanks
