The Overview

We awoke this morning to look out and see if we were in Kansas. But no, it is still Muskoka and still April. The winds will have wreaked havoc across the region and the cleanup will continue for a bit. A great reason to be outside today to get that barbecue cover back from the far reaches of the hood. The winds will remain in play today and tomorrow. But the brilliant sunshine will carry the day – inside or out. Thanks fore the reminder Mother Nature!
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. We are trying to work with the provincial government to get courses open at some point in the near future. Moot point right now with the weather. But the grass is green. 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 -7C) with some snow down likely some more trees than normal. It will warm to 3C (FL -2C) in the afternoon and then cool to -4C (FL -8C) overnight. We hope you enjoyed the brief bout of warm.
The winds are still out of the West and bit lighter at just over 20kph into the evening when they will quiet. The winds that brought this change will remain in control through tomorrow and well into the week ahead.

Road Report

Road report – nothing like a lot of wind and wet conditions to bring all of the plows out today if they patrol in the lee of Lake Huron and GBay.

Course Update

We are back in the chill fore a few days – likely back into warmer on the weekend. This is Mother Nature telling us to stay home.

Even without legal restrictions, we would not be golfing today. But nothing like being prepared – we need to restore our ball inventory. And new balls mean a new season. We have our e-commerce portal where you can purchase the 4 4 3 Titleist ProV brand or the Callaway brand of golf balls as a Spring Special. 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 birds are back and it is wonderful to see!!

The Dogs

Hendrik likes this view. He is loyal and stays around home. He keeps our Cortisol (stress levels) in check and fore this we are grateful. With the ponds now open, he is quite happy to watch any activity on them.

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.

Muskoka Highlands is committed to your safety while you enjoy your game. Please read our COVID procedures BEFORE booking your Tee TimeLearn More
