The Overview

The drop in temps has been pushed by a northwest wind coming down the Great Lakes and swinging across GBay to the east and over our region. The cooler winds have less rain in them. But there will be some rain in North Muskoka (think Tower Hill/ Port Sydney and North) this morning. Bracebridge and south should see little rain with the clouds trying to open and let through the sun. Otherwise, a great day for golf as the dock will not be as appealing today.


The Radar Never Lies!

Our opening temperature starts at 12C(FL 11C) under fluffy clouds. It will warm to 13C (FL 12C) in the afternoon and then cool to 4C (FL 2C) overnight. Full on natural air conditioning today.
Winds – the westerlies are here fore the day – hopefully pushing the clouds out.


Daylight Hours

Sunrise – 5:35AM, Sunset – 8:55PM. These longer days let us golf earlier and finish later. Starting 18 holes walking at 630PM is entirely possible.


Bug Report

The Bug Report – the bugs are buzzing and hungry. We are their dinner now. The bugs are dinner fore the swallows. And we always thought we were at the top of the food chain! Nothing worse than rain and bugs – but we are being baptized into Summer 2020! But here at Muskoka Highlands, the ever-present breeze keeps them mostly at bay.


Allergy Index

The Allergy Index is HIGH. The rain knocked some out of the air – but then it brought on the next surge in growth. No winning at this game!!


UV Index

The UV index is MEDIUM in this broken cloud cover. It will be cool but with the sun higher on the horizon, it will still penetrate the cloud cover.


Course Update

It is back to walking weather fore golf. While a little damp after the dump of rain yesterday, the temps are much more comfortable. Nothing beats a 2 hour round of 18 holes walking – gets the heart pumping, and the brain buzzing. A great break from the normal daily routine.

We are starting to develop options for hosting golf events that will fund raise fore a community event. While the steak dinner is likely out of reach fore now, the playing of the event and awarding of prizes can be done on a flow through basis. Give Don a call at 705 646 1060 and we can discuss options. We believe the community cares about your commitment and will support you with the right options.

It is a dog’s life living on a golf course….

A Special Day In A Wonderful Setting

Weddings are a special day for many people involved. Here at Muskoka Highlands, we reduce that stress with attention to every detail.
But our distinguishing feature is our setting – both inside and out. The clubhouse is designed to hold about 85 guests and the picture shows how this can happen. For larger parties, we engage a tent professional to create a unique setting outside.

Do you want to feel the warmth of a timber-frame clubhouse? Drop us an inquiry – weddings@muskokahighlands.com. We will respond and we will work with you to make your day special.
