The Overview

Well Dorothy is going to visit us from Kansas, arriving on a clipper early Sunday Morning. Until then, we are pretty clear, windy and cold today and tomorrow. But the massive storm that is wreaking havoc on American Thanksgiving is going to make its way across the border and cause some unfriendly weather into early Sunday morning. It will be another 24 hours before we can truly see the Sunday weather. And we know that weather does change!

The Radar Never Lies!

Our opening temperature starts at -5C(FL -7C) and it will rise to -2C (FL -5C) in the afternoon and the drop back to -10C (FL -15C) overnight. The seasonal change is underway.

The chilly North winds will be here for the day maintaining their speeds in the 10kph range. Overnight, they will move back to out of the East and the speed will drop to 6kph.

Daylight Hours

Sunrise – 7:33AM, Sunset – 4:37PM. Like sand in the hourglass, 9 hours of daylight continue to slip into 15 hours of darkness.

Road Report

Back to quiet and clear on the highways – except for construction which seems to be everywhere.

School Bus Status

There are no cancellations – bundle up – time to ride!

Course Update

Golf is like life – life is like golf. So it is hard to keep it out of mind – even if Muskoka courses are closed for the next 135 days. With the mild wet weather, we keep getting asked if the pins are back in – they are not. But why wait for Spring. The hi-def indoor simulator is operating and starting to get some play. The smiles and chatter all indicate a great time. Our simulator league starts December 1 – with 3 practice rounds before the new year. And the one round on the same course for everyone every week through the end of March. Prizing, skins – the game is the same, but the walk is shorter.
A golf course is built on dirt, but survives on its reputation. This weather has closed the course. This weather is permitting the fairway recovery to continue as we see the grass coming back strongly even at these temps. All is good on the ground. 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.

The Simulator is Open!

When the golf bug bites and you can’t find a tee deck open anywhere, what do you do? You head to Muskoka Highlands where we have a state of the art hi-def simulator at the ready fore your game. With over 20 courses, we have a course fore everyone. And if you want a gathering with golf involved, we have all sorts of games on the simmy that your entire group can play. Where do you think we have taken you fore this hole?

A Special Day In A Wonderful Setting

Weddings are a special day for many people involved. Here at Muskoka Highlands, we reduce that stress with attention to every detail.
But our distinguishing feature is our setting – both inside and out. The clubhouse is designed to hold about 85 guests and the picture shows how this can happen. For larger parties, we engage a tent professional to create a unique setting outside.
