The warmer temps will remain til Tuesday when we slip below the freezing line for a few days. Then back above. So we are on the rollercoaster for a bit while Winter settles in.

The Radar Never Lies!

Our opening temperature starts at -8C(FL -10C) and it will rise to +4c (FL +1C) in the afternoon and then to +1c (FL -3C) overnight. A warmer respite.

Course Update

All sorts of excitement in the hood as a Hawk Owl has been spotted on our property. A rare sighting!

Golf is infectious – why wait for the next 109 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.

There is a wonderful blanket of snow on the course which will could be its layer of protection with this changing weather. More snow today is better fore the course. We need a lot to absorb the January melt that happens every year.

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.
