The trouble with radar is that Mother Nature likes to play tricks on it. These early morning showers are not on any radar. It is showing them done, and moving to the southeast. The day will clear nicely in time for your outside activities. Tee times are not delayed. It is going to be a hot one so stay hydrated. There is some random rain coming back in late tonight and into tomorrow. Predictability does not track with this weather so preparedness is a must.
The Weather Network’s Summer Forecast and it is a result of the cold weather wall in place going from Greenland, across northern Quebec and into Hudson Bay. Our cooler air continues to flow down from Hudson Bay and now the NorthWest meeting the warm air closer to us. We are benefitting from this right now. The warm wet from the south is being kept away by this cool dry northern push.
The Radar Never Lies!
Our opening temperature starts at 19C(FL20C) and will warm to 25C (FL 33C) in the afternoon and then back down to 11C (FL 12C) overnight. The warm air will carry moisture.
The UV Index
The UV index is HIGH from sunrise to sunset.
The Pollen Index is high. The bees will be getting tired? No! Honey production should be strong.
The Weather Wizard (Soon to be Dog Guide)
The weather dog came in from his morning patrol – damp dog = early rain.
The Bug Index
The Bug Index is LOW – the bat patrol was out for breakfast at day-break. They know when the mossies are back at us!
Golf is a game of oddities – people play it fore all sorts of reasons. It relaxes while it challenges. It is a time to chat if you are quiet while others hit. It is a time to walk between the stillness of the shot. It is a game you play with others against yourself. The ball does not move until you move it. And the putting line is usually 2 inches away from where you hit your putt. Enjoy this confounding game – it is that one good shot that brings us back for the next round.
Golf Hint fore today – Golf – hit, chat walk, hit again and repeat. Nothing beats burning calories, walking a few holes and chatting. Add in some aerobics swinging the clubs, and some stretching bending over to tee the ball or retrieve it from the hole after sinking a 30 foot snaky putt and you have your own personal fitness trainer all set.
Golf can be a quick walk. We play 18 holes in 2.5 hours on a normal day. If you have just a couple of hours, we have a 12 hole rate. Play early. Play ready golf – first to the tee, first to hit.
Safety Hint – if you are in a golf cart, please keep your feet inside the vehicle. You just need to catch a toe on a piece of dirt – and wham – you will have a broken ankle! And if you are a worker, it is a $1,000 fine and a court summons!
Membership Has Its Advantages
We are asked about Membership at Muskoka Highlands. We have a variety of Membership options fore you – and if there isn’t one that works, let’s chat. We are creative and like to cater to needs where possible.
Carts are not necessary on our course – we are a walking course. But there are cart packages available.
We are an 18 hole course – and we have to maintain 18 holes. When we are asked about our 9 hole membership being a bit more expensive, it is because we have to maintain all 18 holes for your to have the ability to choose to play the front or the back.
Not sure about how much you will play? Buy our 12 fore 10 pack – pay for 10 – get 12 – fully transferable passes – 9 or 18 holes, carts also.
Juniors and Youth – a great deal – up til you are 25, you add a zero to your age – and bingo – there is your membership fee.
25-45 – Muliply your age x $20 and add HST – bingo – there is your membership fee.
To be fair – we stopped there, because $30 x age over 45 gets a bit more expensive!!
Kubota North $200,000 ShootOut Fore Dog Guides
Muskoka Highlands’ staff and guests foster a Dog Guide Puppy from 6 weeks to 13 months. It is then a teary goodbye and the pup moves on to more formal training fore one of six skill sets from seeing, hearing to autism and seizures of various varieties as well as assisting those with mobility challenges.
We are on our 21st puppy. It is we – as the experience you as our guests give to the dog get them socialized to meet others without making a big fuss. This is a huge part of the training.
The other huge part is the cost – up to $25,000 per puppy. This is why we host an annual shoot-out – we believe in paying it forward.
Join us today – have lunch, play golf, meet a working product from your work (Ellis now called Ancaster) who will be here to watch someone get another Hole In One for $5k – like Robinson Clark did last year. Click Here to go to the tournament site!!
Do you have a junior golfer?
We have clinics every Saturday morning (when it is not raining).
We have weekly golf camps for July and August.
AND they can join the many that have already joined Muskoka Highlands – just add zero to their age and add HST.
