As golf courses across Ontario begin to open for business (with strict safety measures in place), we wanted to share our thoughts on some of Muskoka’s most memorable golf holes. There are many reasons a particular golf hole will stick with us. From the historic walk across the Swilken Bridge on the 18th at the Old Course in St Andrews, Scotland to being awestruck by the magnificence of the Rockies on almost every hole at Fairmont Banff Springs or Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge in Alberta. Or for some, it could be the memory of your first birdie, eagle or how about a hole in one!
Moving a little closer to home, you will find Muskoka is one of the finest golf destinations in the world, offering an incredible variety of golf courses from family run nines to some of Canada’s best. With that in mind, we have put together our list of 8 of Muskoka’s most memorable golf holes for you to consider and hopefully get a chance to experience in person!
1. Muskoka Bay – Hole #1
2. Bigwin Island – Hole #18
3. Deerhurst Highlands – Hole #1
4. Taboo – Hole #18
5. The Rock – Hole #12
6. Rocky Crest – Hole #18
7. Grandview – Hole #1
8. Lake Joseph – Hole #8
Of course, if you simply love getting out on the fairway with good friends, any hole on any course might just do the trick!
