The Overview

Ah August – you were a great month that had a few curve balls in there. You did not disappoint though. And you have heralded the arrival of September and Fall weather. Thanks! Today will be a wonderful day with sunshine between broken cloud cover. The humidex looks like it wants to restart and so we are headed into some muggy days ahead. There will be rain overnight on Tuesday but it is looking like no daylight hours will be washed out. And the good weather keeps on rolling!
This transition to Fall is an interesting time. Nobody knows more than 2-3 days out what will happen. It is all less than 30% chance of being right beyond that timeline. So we learn to live within the moment. Long range planning works for many things that are not weather dependent. Golf is weather dependent – so we stick to the facts and not conjecture on the weather.

The Radar Never Lies!

Our opening temperature starts at 10C(FL 9C) – cool this morning. It will warm to 21C (FL 22C) in the afternoon and then cool to 16C (FL 17C) overnight. We are getting that warm feeling coming back!
Winds – the winds are one direction today – from the North. They try to get to the West during the afternoon, but fall back to the North overnight. All less that 9kph.

The Fire index

Fire Index –the index is LOW in our area. The rain and cool weather has eliminated any thoughts of a forest fire locally. The next few days will dry things out.

Course Overview

The course is just about fully recovered from a couple of wicked winters. It has taken time and patience on the part of everyone – including you the player – to make this happen. It has been 1 year since Mitch Guy took the reins to start the recovery. And he has made some magic happen in this time. One need only look at the before and after pictures of some of the fairways and greens to see the talent and knowledge Mitch has brought to Muskoka Highlands. Thank you Mitch!
