The Overview

Winter has stalled in its coverage of Ontario. The southern flow of weather keeps the temps in the warmer range. While this is great for driving and layering up in winter gear, it will create some challenges in the general environment. We can expect this southern visitor to remain with us through tomorrow and then vacate to allow the flow of cooler air from the North by Saturday. There might be some intermittent rain showers over the next 2 days.

The Radar Never Lies!

Our opening temperature starts at -4C(FL -9C) and it will rise to +4C (FL +1C) in the afternoon and then fall to +2C (FL -1C) overnight.

The winds be from the South at around 10kph til late tomorrow when they will shift to the SE. This will keep the more moderate temps in the region, and will bring light intermittent rain.

Daylight Hours

Sunrise – 7:55AM, Sunset – 4:46PM. The day is lengthening by seconds daily – we have gained 52 seconds of daylight since Winter Solstice. The sun starts setting later – by one minute every day on average. The sun will rise about the same time. Around Jan 8th, the rate of change will increase and the sun will rise earlier, and set later through til June. Yay!

Road Report

The plows are resting as the roads are clear of snow and ice. They will get a couple of days of rest before a system moves in from the SW.

Course Update

All sorts of excitement in the hood as a Hawk Owl continues to inhabit our property. A rare sighting!

Golf is infectious – even if Muskoka courses are closed for the next 98 days. But why wait for Spring. The hi-def indoor simulator is operating and starting to get some good play. The smiles and chatter all indicate a great time. Our simulator league has started and is ready fore you to join. Everyone plays one round on the same course every week through the end of March. Prizing, skins – the game is the same, but the walk is shorter. There is still time to join!

This warmer weather is not great for anybody – ski hills need it a tad cooler, and golf courses also prefer snow over rain.

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 til Jan 2nd. It is great to see how he is doing – as he trains in the Autism Assist program. The trainers love him as he is so huggable!

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.
