The Overview

We gotta believe the weather is getting better, and that we are getting well enough as a province to get back into golf. Good worlds colliding. While the chill NW winds are still here, the SW winds are just to our West so relief is close at hand. All summer indicators are ramping up. Time to get outside – safely – and start enjoying life….

The Radar Never Lies!

Our opening temperature starts at -6C(FL -6C) in sunshine. It will warm to 10C (FL 8C) in the afternoon and then cool to 1C (FL -1C) overnight. Nice day, nippy night.
Winds – remain gently from the NW keeping an element of cool in place. There is southerly flow to our West which will bring the rain in Thursday overnight and into Friday. Maybe sleep with the windows open soon! But the spring peepers…..

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.

Do you want to feel the warmth of a timber-frame clubhouse? Drop us an inquiry – weddings@muskokahighlands.com. We will respond and we will work with you to make your day special.
