The Overview

The sun will shine today and it will bring welcome mental uplift with it. The North winds will be light but still chilly. The remaining snow piles will shrink rapidly now. The ground still has a bit of frost, and with this onset of heat will start to dry. The water is draining well and moving off of the course at good speed.
The news out of BC today is harsh but likely realistic. This pandemic needs all of us to behave and not give the virus any new uninfected hosts. We can only do this by not being together. Your family bubble is key to your survival. We all live with the hope that by sacrificing today, we will get back closer to normal tomorrow. Just how and when this will happen – we have a say in this, by our actions today.
But we are missing you. 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. 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 physical 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 -4C(FL -4C) with light rain and will warm to 9C (FL 7C) in the afternoon and then chill to -3C (FL -7C) overnight. A sunny day to enjoy.
The UV index is HIGH as the sun shines all day.
The winds will be out of the NE at 10kph fore much of today. They are unusually positive bringing a sun back to us. Tomorrow they will stay from the North in the 10kph range – and no this is not an April Fool’s joke…

Course Update

The double edged weather sword is back – nice and sunny – but we need to remain self isolated. Are you able to walk anywhere safely? We walk on your course daily and you are welcome to park and walk as well. Things are damp so footwear is key.

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! With the ponds just about clear of ice, these creatures will be cruising the course – talk about slow play!!

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 – and he thought he would try the pond….did not go so well…..

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.
