Muskoka, Golf Haven in Ontario

Muskoka, Golf Haven in Ontario

Planning a golf vacation in Muskoka is indeed an awesome golf treat for you and your loved ones. This haven is just unbelievable with hundreds of giant lakes, rivers, forests and remarkably laid out golf courses with rock formations protruding up and out of the courses’ fairways. They are just marvelous spots in Ontario, Canada.

If not, the National Geographic Traveler Magazine wouldn’t have chosen Muskoka as a must-see locale of the year. They wouldn’t have declared it as one of the top destinations worldwide in-line with other destinations in London and Iceland.

Golfing in Muskoka is an extraordinary experience as its landscape is. The topography fits just perfectly for the sport and is also the reason why the place is home to very prominent golf courses. Found here are Deerhurst Highlands, Bigwin Island and The Ridge at Manitou, to name a few.

The Oak Bay located in Honey Harbor is one of the newest. Its 17th hole is a very prominent feature which is spectacularly designed that plays par 3, straight across the water, leading to a green and hovers to a large piece of granite.

The Muskoka Bay Club located in Gravenhurst and designed by world renowned Doug Carrick was chosen as the best new course in Canada after it opened in 2006. The course can be a golfer’s enemy with 7,400 yards of distance with an amusing 349-yard par 4, 4th hole which has a pond and sand skirts. Some other holes are also amazingly designed.

With all these wonderful sceneries and much-anticipated fun, many courses in Muskoka also offer green fees that are half the price of what other prominent courses offer. What a great golf travel destination indeed!
