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

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.
