The Overview

Say good bye to May and the tempestuous weather she brought with her. It was a month of surprizes in many ways. And it was not a normal May by any standard. Today will be cool by recent standards, but it is the beginning of the return of the warm. The winds are pushing up the Ohio valley and this brings warm. They meet the Northwesterlies well north of us. But the weather continues to come from the NW and this might include some rain late in the day. Monday looks possibly mixed. Tuesday is looking pretty wet at this point. All part of the planning mode fore you!

Bug Report

The Bug Report – the bugs are buzzing and hungry. We are their dinner now. The bugs are dinner fore the swallows. And we always thought we were at the top of the food chain! But here at Muskoka Highlands, the ever-present breeze keeps them mostly at bay. 200531br

Allergy Index

The Allergy Index is HIGH. The rain knocked some out of the air – but then it brought on the next surge in growth. No winning at this game!! 200531pr

UV Index

The UV index is VERY HIGH in this light cloud cover. It will be cool but with the sun it will feel warmer. 200531uv

Course Update

The one thing that returned to normal came with the opening of golf courses on May 17th. The buzz and the smiles were unavoidable as the pent up frustration and passion were all released on the first tee with that first drive. You came of the course a changed person from when you arrived. And we are thrilled to be part of this healing process. This is great walking weather fore golf. Nothing beats a 2 hour round of 18 holes walking – gets the heart pumping, and the brain buzzing. A great break from the daily routine. Something normal we can all do in these abnormal times.

We are starting to develop options for hosting golf events that will fund raise fore a community event. While the steak dinner is likely out of reach fore now, the playing of the event and awarding of prizes can be done on a flow through basis. Give Don a call at 705 646 1060 and we can discuss options. We believe the community cares about your commitment and will support you with the right options.

Are you of age less than 40? Ask about our graduated member programs. $10 per year under 26, $20 x age til you are 40. We know you need to keep some cash for living – so we have made this as affordable as possible. Call us – we will confirm this.

Determination and hard work will make you a better player. A lesson helps! Let us know – we have great programs from the beginner to the player.

Course Wildlife - not the ones on the carts!

Golf courses are a nature preserve where we get all sorts of animals cruising about. You never know what you will see – keep the camera ready! These modern age dinosaurs wander the course daily – do not attempt to pet them…
