Course Overview

We host our annual Ron Babcock 2Man Scramble today. We have revised the format to cross-over so there is no gathering, and at the end of the round, the players get a personal pizza, a thank you fore playing and then head fore their ride home. All within guidelines, done safely, but having a ton of fun. All in Ronnie’s memory – he is likely disappointed there is no snow to scrape off the greens to permit play!

Covid is not going nicely, it is not just going to disappear as some have said at the outset. We are in this until there is a vaccine. So the activity selection is limited – much to golf. Golf has agreed to many Covid policies – prepayment, are shut clubhouses, names and emails for all golfers. If your course is not doing this – ask them why they are not part of the covid solution. With talk of shutdowns to contain Covid, your covid-compliant golf courses will remain safe and open so that you have something normal to do.
The greens are running nicely (please fix 10 ball marks when you play). The fairways are back to normal. It is all here fore you. Give us a look online – www.muskokahighlands.com .
