The Overview

Today is a bit of respite from the intense weather – but only until tomorrow. Then we will start to see freezing rain and then rain early in the morning and lasting til the early afternoon. Snow should return on the NW winds around 4PM. The cold will return with this change and we will head back into Winter. Snow streamers will be the weather for Sunday.

The Radar Never Lies!

Our opening temperature starts at -2C(FL -7C) and it will move to +2c (FL -2C) in the afternoon and then slide to -2c (FL -6C) overnight. Moderate weather – would prefer just a bit chillier through tomorrow!

The winds start out of the South at 10kph today. Tomorrow they will swing to the North around noon and then the NW later in the day – and pick up in speed into the 15kph range later in the day.

Daylight Hours

Sunrise – 7:46AM, Sunset – 4:35PM. As we approach the shortest day of the year, the rate of loss of daylight slows, reflecting the slowing in the tilting of the earth away from the sun.

Road Report

The plows are out East of GBay as there was a bit of light snow overnight. The road conditions south of Muskoka are all good for travel.

School Bus Status

No cancellations at this point.

Course Update

Golf is infectious – why wait for the next 118 days to play. The hi-def indoor simulator is operating. The smiles and chatter all indicate a great time. Our simulator league starts December 1 – with 3 practice rounds before the new year. And the one round on the same course for everyone every week through the end of March. Prizing, skins – the game is the same, but the walk is shorter.

Golf courses love the blanket of snow provided by Mother Nature. It protects against the Winter chill. Rain on the other hand makes it feel to us like we are sleeping under a wet blanket. Tomorrow will be interesting – let’s see how much rain we get and how it dampens our blanket on the course.

The Simulator is Open!

When the golf bug bites and you can’t find a tee deck open anywhere, what do you do? You head to Muskoka Highlands where we have a state of the art hi-def simulator at the ready fore your game. With over 20 courses, we have a course fore everyone. And if you want a gathering with golf involved, we have all sorts of games on the simmy that your entire group can play. Where do you think we have taken you fore this hole?

The Dogs

Dog Update – Wizard is home from the 19th to Jan 2nd. It will be great to see how he is doing – as he trains in the Autism Assist program. We have heard from Angus and his owner Bill – great story that we will tell in the new year. Ancaster (Ellis) is hosting a major fundraiser in March. And Gavin continues to impress his new owner.

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.
