The Overview

The weather gods continue to pull weather blindly from a hat. We will have snow streamers randomly through the day, with some serious snow around 9AM hence the Snow Squall Warning from Environment Canada. They will be on and off for the rest of the day clearing through late in the day. Tomorrow there is a major front seemingly headed north of Muskoka, but hammering the Hwy 17 corridor. It could slide south mid-afternoon – time will tell. This front has a tail dropping towards us early Friday morning.

The Radar Never Lies!

Our opening temperature starts at -7C(FL -13C) and it will move to -5c (FL -12C) in the afternoon and then drop to -11c (FL -17C) overnight. Bundle time!

The winds start out of the SW today increasing in speed to 26kph swinging to the NW late in the day with speeds around 20kph. This will bring the snow streamers from GBay. They will moderate to 9kph and swing to the South around noon tomorrow.

Daylight Hours

Sunrise – 7:45AM, 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 in the traditional snow-belt areas, including all of Muskoka, dealing with these snow streamers. Give them room – they have a job to do.

School Bus Status

Due to snow streamers, busses to all elementary schools are cancelled.

Strike by HS teachers has closed all Secondary Schools in TLDSB.

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.

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.

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.
