The Overview

North winds have brought the cooler weather back to Muskoka fore today. Overnight the winds will change to East with all that comes with this. Friday will be relatively clear but the next Colorado Clipper will arrive early Saturday morning and hopefully clear before Sunday when Santa visits Bracebridge!

The Radar Never Lies!

Our opening temperature starts at -2C(FL -7C) and it will rise to -1C (FL -6) in the afternoon and the drop back to -4C (FL -10C) overnight. This will tighten up the ground.

The chilly North winds will be here for the day maintaining their speeds in the 20kph range. Overnight, they will move back to out of the East and the speed will drop to 10kph.

Daylight Hours

Sunrise – 7:32AM, Sunset – 4:37PM. Like sand in the hourglass, daylight minutes continue to slip into darkness.

Road Report

Road report – It looks like every available plow is on the road this morning. The snap back to cold after the rain yesterday will make for slippery conditions out there. Drive knowing there could be black ice.

School Bus Status

There are no cancellations – bundle up – time to ride!

Course Update

Golf is like life – life is like golf. So it is hard to keep it out of mind – even if Muskoka courses are closed for the next 135 days. With the mild wet weather, we kept getting asked if the pins were back in – they are not. But why wait for Spring. The hi-def indoor simulator is operating and starting to get some play. The smiles and chatter all indicate a great time. Our simulator league starts December 1 – with 3 practice rounds before the new year. And the one round on the same course for everyone every week through the end of March. Prizing, skins – the game is the same, but the walk is shorter.

A golf course is built on dirt, but survives on its reputation. This weather has closed the course. This weather is permitting the fairway recovery to continue as we see the grass coming back strongly even at these temps. All is good on the ground. And this is where we put our reputation. The ultimate compliment any course can get is from you – the player – your second (and third and..) round at the course. We thank you fore this.

The Simulator is Open!

When the golf bug bites and you can’t find a tee deck open anywhere, what do you do? You head to Muskoka Highlands where we have a state of the art hi-def simulator at the ready fore your game. With over 20 courses, we have a course fore everyone. And if you want a gathering with golf involved, we have all sorts of games on the simmy that your entire group can play. Where do you think we have taken you fore this hole?
