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.

Great course as long as you're not paying full price

I play this course once or twice each season when up visiting at a friend's cottage in the area.

The course is a little tight, winding through the forest, so make sure to hit it straight or bring a few extra balls!

Nice topography and lay out. Conditions are usually pretty good. Course isn't usually that busy so pace of play also seems to usually be pretty good.

Course is not walk-able, and I believe carts are mandatory and included in the price. I would say anything under $75 all-in is a reasonable price to pay for this course in prime time.

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.

Went from Beautiful to Very Poor Condition.

This course used the be the best hidden gem in the Muskoka's, but has gone down hill ever since knew ownership took over about seven years ago. They raised the price and lowered all the services and it has taken its toll on the course. It's too bad you don't have to qualify to take over ownership of a golf course. I would not recommend this course to anyone right now. it's in ruff shape , there is no service, and the pace of play is extremely slow.
