Muskoka’s natural beauty and rugged terrain offers some of the most challenging and beautiful golf courses in Canada.
Bigwin Island Golf
”Bigwin Island Golf Club has sweeping fairways that drape naturally over the rugged Muskoka terrain, exposing glorious lake vistas at every turn and creating a sense of timeless beauty and tranquility. The course itself is a par 72 championship layout measuring 7,166 yards from the championship tees.
Every hole is surrounded by mature hardwoods, creating a sense of maturity and character typically found on the great classic courses built during the early 1900’s. The holes are routed in a variety of directions over the undulating island terrain, creating constantly changing shot values, wind directions and challenges.”
“This is the Muskoka golf course that sparked the region’s emergence as a major, must-play Canadian golf destination. Taking full advantage of the dramatic landscape while capitalizing on elevation changes, rugged granite outcroppings and dense forests, the design is a genuine representation of the region, while maintaining a highly playable, well-balanced Muskoka golf course that has stood the test of time. With 6 different tee deck levels including ladies, juniors and seniors, Deerhurst Highlands provides the ultimate Muskoka golf experience for a wide range of golfers.”
Grandview Golf Club
“Co-designed by PGA Tour veteran Mark O’Meara (1998 Masters and British Open champion) and renowned course architect Brit Stenson, the Mark O’Meara Course at Grandview is aptly named as it exudes grandness from the moment you arrive. Greens feature subtle breaks that one does not easily master. Large elevation changes throughout give spectacular views of Fairy Lake. Deciduous forest, granite and marshland are a few other key characteristics. Visit in the fall to witness the spectacular showing of the trees—a living reminder of what once inspired the Group of Seven to document this region’s beauty on their canvases.”
