Short but TOUGH

Target golf for pretty much every hole. Very well maintained course. Higher handicaps make sure you bring a few balls and lower handicaps don’t let the yardage let you think this is a walk in the park. Beautiful course!

Annoying Sprinklers destroys round

Great course. Wet does not drain very well for a newer course. Also lots of rain lately but unfortunately not engineered properly or should never have been there in the first place.

Sprinklers going off on every tee deck……why?

Asked one of the workers & his response was …….”we have to do it every year”. I’m sure you do water tends to freeze. But don’t do it when golfers are on the tee decks. We paid good money to play & we have to deal with this crap. Ha ha not funny.

I’ll be looking for a full refund or credit & will get it.

Very unprofessional unfortunately makes the owner & the pro at this course both look bad. I will be in touch & GolfNow from whom I purchased the green fees from should also be aware & are also responsible as they receive a pretty good cut of the green fees.

Gentleman in pro shop was excellent along with the cart lady.

Stay Away

If you’re going to play golf and only want to see nice scenery then you might want to play here however everything from the club pro who is the most uncooperative service individual I’ve ever met at a golf course to the actual cost to play here is Unbelievably bad
It is my understanding that the cost to play here next year is now the highest in Muskoka and trust me it is not worth it they have no marshals and the chance of getting hit by balls as a result is very high stay away terrible terrible place

Worth the experience

A little wet but that’s to be expected this time of year (mid October). Bring lots of balls and a camera. Always a pleasure to play here.

Fall outing

Tough course requiring good drives and accurate iron shots. Beautiful natural views.

Well worth playing. Take extra balls for sure and be aware of poison ivy.

Great challenge

This course is a great challenge for a better player. If you are a 20+ handicap, play from the forward tees or you will be frustrated
Course in great shape except the old fairway bunkers that have been neglected. Either fill them with grass or sand.
Bring lots of balls!
Definitely a great course to play

A very challenging course!

This is a course for better players only. Conditions are quite good (except fairway bunkers that are dirt and weeds only). The long carries over rough are too challenging for most players. The rough is too high to see over! It needs to be cut back! Also the GPS on the carts are off by at least +/- 10 yards and should be recalibrated. My Garmin watch which I use elsewhere confirmed this.
If you are not a single digit handicapper, bring lots of balls!! For better players, a good challenge!

fairway bunkers?

The premium conditions and difficult but good course design and construction are fair for the price. But the fairway bunkers are partially overgrown, and I didn't consider them playable. How could I not have been somehow inform about this before a few holes into the round? This was especially unpleasant as it was my first time through and I couldn't see where the bunkers were originally from the tee boxes. Would I have been there had I known?

All the crap between tee box and fairway detracts from a normal game. Not everyone is a scratch folfey. Nice course but I won’t be back

Great experience

This was my first round here and it was a great experience. It’s pretty tight with some intimidating tee shots but it’s not a long course so balances out nice. The course is very well maintained and has some beautiful views and design features. If you struggle to hit it straight bring lots of balls! Played the back tees (blue) and shot 79 (I’m a 10 hdcp) looking forward to playing again!

Great Course

This course offered spectacular scenery and was well worth the cost of green fees. Very challenging with the amount of water around the course. Be prepared to donate a number of golf balls to the water and if you are only slightly off the fairway your ball may be surrounded by an abundance of poison ivy. I would be happy to play the course again.
