As we await the sunrise, we also await the first wave of rain that will arrive about 7AM. There will be a break from 9-1030AM which will be followed by another wave of rain til noon. It looks like it is mottled with light rain clouds behind that – but GBay normally breaks these down and leaves little fore inland Muskoka. Later in the day, it will clear through and it looks quiet and sunny for tomorrow.
The Radar Never Lies!
Our opening temperature starts at 16C(FL15C) and will warm to 21C (FL 23C) in the afternoon and then back down to 17C (FL 17C) overnight. Warmer air is approaching from the SouthWest – bringing a wet Tuesday and a dry Wednesday.
These temps will continue their slide as the earth continues to tilt Muskoka away from the sun.
The UV Index
The UV index is HIGH from sunrise to sunset.
The Pollen Index is high. The bees will be getting tired? No! Honey production should be strong.
The Weather Wizard (Soon to be Dog Guide)
The weather dog came in from his morning patrol – damp belly = dew down.
The Bug Index
The Bug Index is LOW – the bat patrol was out for breakfast at day-break. They know when the mossies are back at us!
Golf is an inclusive sport. Golf Ontario is hosting the Ontario Open – reborn after years of dormancy. Included in this is the Ontario Disability Championship where golfers with various challenges can compete on a provincial level. Congratulations to all competitors for taking your game to the next level.
Golf Hint fore today – Golf – hit, chat walk, hit again and repeat. Nothing beats burning calories, walking a few holes and chatting. Add in some aerobics swinging the clubs, and some stretching bending over to tee the ball or retrieve it from the hole after sinking a 30 foot snaky putt and you have your own personal fitness trainer all set.
Golf can be a quick walk. We play 18 holes in 2.5 hours on a normal day. If you have just a couple of hours, we have a 12 hole rate. Play early. Play ready golf – first to the tee, first to hit.
Safety Hint – if you are in a golf cart, please keep your feet inside the vehicle. You just need to catch a toe on a piece of dirt – and wham – you will have a broken ankle! And if you are a worker, it is a $1,000 fine and a court summons!
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!!
