North Granite Ridge Golf Club Port Sydney

North Granite Ridge Golf Club is a championship 18 hole golf course in Port Sydney, part of the Muskoka region. Voted by the readers of the Muskokan as Muskoka’s Best Golf Course in 2011, the course was designed by golf course architect Jason Miller. The club also features a driving range and restaurant, Duffer’s Tap & Grill, serving up all your pub fare favourites and cold drinks for before or after your round.

Jason Miller, Golf Course Architect, said “designing this golf course within this type of landscape was truly inspiring. The variety of golf holes that play through these boulders and trees or utilize the elevations provided by the granite ridges is second to none. It was easy to find fabulous green sites framed by trees and granite without altering the terrain. A number of tee decks are perched on the top of these granite ridges, providing long-range vistas over forest, without a road to be seen or heard, it was beyond compare. If there is a hidden gem in the world of golf, then North Granite Ridge sparkles brightly. It is up to you to come and discover this place for yourself.”

Oak Bay Golf Club Port Severn

Oak Bay is a natural marvel—a golf course that seamlessly fits with its environment. That means some holes with rocky outcroppings, indicative of the rough terrain of both the surrounding Georgian Bay shorelines and Muskoka areas. Water protects some holes, while others are made more intimate by being cut out of dense forests of trees. Known for its impeccable conditioning, most of all Oak Bay is a delight to play. Long enough to challenge the best players, but fun for those seeking to escape for a day on the course, Oak Bay never fails to thrill. SCOREGolf, among others, praised Oak Bay’s incredible mix of par-three holes, noting, “the 6th is a get-your-camera-out hole. It plays 170 yards at its longest and traverses a hazard to an imposing, multi-tiered green set high on a steep rock face.” SCOREGolf isn’t alone in its praise; the 6th has been heralded by the Globe and Mail as one of the best holes in Canada.

With its contemporary appeal and design, the 10,000–square foot clubhouse at Oak Bay is the ideal setting for your next golf tournament, a family function, or a wedding for up to 90 people. While the clubhouse is licensed for 180, a smaller, intimate wedding with the club’s stunning setting is ideal. The award winning restaurant is open to the public for lunch and dinner service.

Rocky Crest Golf Club celebrates the natural features of Ontario’s Muskoka region and was designed by Thomas McBroom. Framed by giant forests of pine, white birch and hemlock, the rolling fairways are accented by deep bunkers and granite outcroppings that provide definition and challenge. ‘The use of the rock is totally innovative – a strategic and aesthetic element that shows off the beauty of the Canadian Shield,’ McBroom says. The seamless routing, views, marshes and abundant wildlife enhance a memorable golf course that has received rave reviews since it opened in May 2000.

McBroom, a four-time winner of Golf Digest’s Best New Canadian Course award, says Rocky Crest has generated the biggest buzz of any new course that he has designed.

The Ridge at Manitou Golf Club McKellar

The Ridge at Manitou is a place of natural beauty where holes meander through the Muskoka landscape. A short drive into the interior from Parry Sound on Lake Manitouwabing, designer Tom McBroom’s “out and back” layout delivers an unforgettable experience. Many argue that The Ridge is the best of the new Muskoka courses, and it’s certainly one of the architect’s best.

Whether you’re staying in one of the hundreds of cottages on Manitouwabing, driving in for the day, or using The Ridge as a stop on a Muskoka golf tour, the over the top hospitality will be the same. Most arrive by car, but the clubhouse has lakefront access and mooring for both boats and float planes – and what a clubhouse. Perched on the rocky shore, this log structure is right out of another time – a large fireplace in the dining room, generous screened porch, and a patio right on the granite of the Canadian Shield.

The course itself lives up to every bit of its reputation. It has been ranked in the top 100 courses in Canada many times, and #24 on the Score Golf ‘Public Courses” list. While many Muskoka courses have been rightly criticized for favouring vistas over playability – architect Tom McBroom has created a wonderful golf experience, where the beauty of rocks and trees and bogs is ever present, but not a distraction or unnecessarily penal.
