The Overview

There is one constant about weather – it changes. We live on the 45th parallel. We are equal distance from the equator and the North Pole. This presents equal opportunity fore warm and fore cool weather. The battle is on. The cool breezes from the north are pushing out the summer-like conditions from yesterday. This will give us a comparatively chilly day. It will be dry from 10AM onwards so no need to cancel golf – just a wee delay to starting. It is looking clear and cooler for the next few days. But this can change. A quick warning – there is snow well to our North! This is typical Fall weather and something with which we can live.

The Radar Never Lies!

Our opening temperature starts at 13C(FL 12C) and it will remain at 13C (FL 12C) in the afternoon and then down slightly to 5C (FL 2C) overnight. Dangerously close to Jack Frost territory.

Daylight Hours

Sunrise – 7:16AM, Sunset – 6:56PM – an act of disappearing daylight. Golf later, finish earlier.

Pollen Index

The Pollen Index is high –the golden rod remains. The tall grasses are shedding their seeds in the winds. I just need to play golf with a certain friend and his eyes set the rating.

The Weather Wizard (Soon to be Dog Guide Fore an Autistic Person)

The weather dog blew in from his morning patrol – wet belly and wet head. Rain at 7 quit by 11.
He realizes his time with us is limited as he soon heads back to be trained to be with an autistic person.

The Colours index

The Colours index is MEDIUM-HIGH with the tree canopy changing nicely. This overnight temp will move this indicator to high shortly. Let’s hope the rain does not knock down too many leaves too soon.

Course Update

Golf is therapeutic. It is played in the quiet of the out of doors. We have created sounds and systems for sounds to change this. But the basics are there. Many of us are desk-bound and sit for hours on end. When we need a walk, it is nice to have a golf course nearby to wander for a break. Even a lunch break of a few holes and a bite are therapy fore a hectic day. Pay by time taken – this option is here fore you.

A golf course is built on dirt, but survives on its reputation. We love to hear the various impressions our course makes on our guests. A constant for us to hear is “Love the layout – it is a fun course to play”. They could not believe the layout and the fun they were having on this wee fun course. We are in this together. 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.

Membership Has Its Advantages

We are asked about Membership at Muskoka Highlands.

Here are our Lassies – just ask them how much fun it is to golf at the 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!!

Course Maintenance

The work-horse of any golf course is the tractor. You can’t have too many! These do so much – from loading sand as shown here, to grading, to cutting the longer grasses (we can hear your cheers), to hauling trailers of material and finally blowing snow – it all happens with this versatile machine.
