The Overview

We are going to be Fall-warm and dry through to Saturday. There is weather to our South that will head further south by 9AM. There is a wee tail of a front that could pass through late Friday afternoon – it could also evaporate over GBay. Time will tell. Enjoy the next 3 days – they are coming at us with great hope of good times.   

The Radar Never Lies!

Our opening temperature starts at 12C(FL12C) and it will warm to 19C (FL 19C) in the afternoon and then back down to 8C (FL 7C) overnight. Summer is on the wane and this weather reflects that. However, it is much better weather than Spring’s departure – we can be grateful.  

These temps will continue their slide as Muskoka tilts away from the sun.

The UV Index

The UV index is HIGH from sunrise to sunset.

Pollen Index

The Pollen Index is high. Just ask an allergy-prone person – they will tell you that the Golden Rod is here!!

The Weather Wizard (Soon to be Dog Guide)

The weather dog blew in from his morning patrol – damp belly and eyebrows = foggy morning.

Contemplative…..

The Bug Index

The Bug Index is LOW – only house flies trying to get inside fore the change in season…

The Colours index

The Colours index is MEDIUM with the tree canopy starting to change at the top. We should be in full colour bloom in another 10 days.

Course Update

The list of benefits of golf is long and detailed. Golf is social. It is not that often we see a single golfer out playing. And if they start as a single, they often finish with a partner. People are more inclined to play golf with someone – sometimes a stranger we meet on the first tee. This can lead to another round together later in the week. We have gained a friend. And this is positive.  

A golf course is built on dirt, but survives on its reputation. Everyday we hear someone comment that it was their first time here and they loved the course – and will be back.  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.

With the waning daylight hours, we start later and finish earlier. There are still many golfable hours in a day – which ones are yours?

Safety Hint – stay inside the cart, not hanging out like a Navy Seal, or standing with the bags on the back where you can easily slip and hit the ground hard getting a concussion. Enjoy the ride if you don’t walk. But think of walking and the benefits to your game and your health.

Membership Has Its Advantages

We are asked about Membership at Muskoka Highlands.

This year we brought in the “multiply your age x $10” and that is your membership if you are less than 27 years old. We have a variation on that for the next decade – 28-37. 

We have a variety of Membership options fore you – and if there isn’t one that works, let’s chat. We are creative and like to cater to needs where possible.

Carts are not necessary on our course – we are a walking course. But there are cart packages available.

We are an 18 hole course – and we have to maintain 18 holes. When we are asked about our 9 hole membership being a bit more expensive, it is because we have to maintain all 18 holes for your to have the ability to choose to play the front or the back.

Not sure about how much you will play? Buy our 12 fore 10 pack – pay for 10 – get 12 – fully transferable passes – 9 or 18 holes, carts also.

Juniors and Youth – a great deal – up til you are 25, you add a zero to your age – and bingo – there is your membership fee.

25-45 – Muliply your age x $20 and add HST – bingo – there is your membership fee.

To be fair – we stopped there, because $30 x age over 45 gets a bit more expensive!!
