The Overview

An uptick in the temps today and tomorrow will bring out more grass to tease us into thinking golf is around the corner. And it is! We just need to get past the C19 roadblock and we will all be playing. Just when depends on that curve – which I really wish they would start to show on the news conferences held almost through the day. While our numbers pale in comparison to other countries, we are mindful of our age-weighted country being older than we might think with more over 65 than under 16. So the danger is real and not to be ignored. Give it another week and see where we go.
We will soon have grass on which to walk ourselves, and we will be missing you as you might well have been able to safely wander about responsibly chasing the white ball. We worry about your mental health and we hope you will be able to withstand the pressure of the next couple of weeks (or longer) within your own property. We will being wandering our back yard keeping an eye on things that need attention. We will try to resist the temptation to test out the playing surfaces to ensure they are properly maintained. Neighbours – you will see us doing necessary maintenance. This is grass, not concrete. This needs maintenance and cannot be left for any period of time, or it will be beyond our control.
Remain committed to self-isolation with a reasonable edge. We are blessed that there is lots of room in PSM for walking and other activities. Maintain your mental health. Help others keep theirs. Keep an eye on your neighbour – especially if they are elderly (remember – there are more Canadians over 65 than under 16).

The Radar Never Lies!

Our opening temperature starts at -1C(FL -3C) and will warm to +7C (FL +6C) in the afternoon and then chill to -4C (FL -9C) overnight. A beautiful Spring Day – sorry we can’t play golf yet!
The UV index is high with sun all day.
Today the breeze starts from the North swinging to the East overnight. While relatively benign today, the wind speed picks up tomorrow and will be in the 20kph range later in the day. These will winds tomorrow will bring a rain front through overnight and into Sunday. And around the compass we go!

Course Update

We have started to maintain the course. The little things you will never see get done now. The continuous melt has increased the amount of grass you can see out on the course. Soon enough the course will be green. Then it just needs to warm to get the grass to start to grow more consistently.
With the Covid shutdown measures now increasing the need for mental relief, the walks outside are becoming more important. While we will be closed for any business, out course is quite walkable, and our neighbours are taking advantage of their proximity to us. We have our e-commerce portal where you can purchase the 4 4 3 Titleist ProV brand of golf balls as a Spring Special. Golf ebooks will be on our site by week’s end. If you can’t actually golf, you can read about golf. And if you want to mentally play the course, you are welcome to pre-pay some rounds and dream that you are using them every day!

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.

Think outside the normal golf tournament box. We have great options involving FootGolf and LawnBowling that can involve the non-golfer in your event! Call us – we some unique concepts.

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!

The Dogs

Hendrik is quite content to be around us more than ever in this isolating time. He is loyal and stays around home. We do go fore walks on the course – a bit icy at the moment so not many for a couple more days.

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.
