Deerhurst Highlands Golf Course

Due to current Covid-19 measures in place, the golf experience at Deerhurst has been adapted for the safety of our guests, members and hosts. Here’s your one-stop Covid Measures & Resort Experience guide to everything you can expect at Deerhurst Resort this year. This will be updated as protocols and provincial restrictions change. 

Muskoka’s Premier Championship Golf Course

While Ontario’s Stay-at-Home order is in effect until June 2nd, Deerhurst Highlands and Deerhurst Lakeside golf courses will open for the benefit of fresh air activity as of May 22, 2021 per the province’s reopening plan.  (Yay!) 

Deerhurst Resort is renowned for many reasons, but Deerhurst Highlands Golf Course is what separates the resort from others in the golfing world. In 1990, Robert Cupp and Thomas McBroom co-designed this par 72 championship golf course, and immediately it established the benchmark for golf courses in the region, spark Muskoka’s emergence as a major, must-play Canadian golf destination. Ranked as one of Canada’s top 59 public golf courses again in 2019 by SCOREGolf, Deerhurst Highlands continues to remain one of the top golfing destinations in Muskoka.

From the first elevated tee overlooking Fairy Lake the par-72 course takes full advantage of the rugged beauty of the Canadian Shield. It’s a bit like stepping into a Group of Seven painting. Bold granite outcroppings and dramatic terrain shifts are epitomized on the tenth signature hole with a sheer granite rock face in play along the length of the fairway. Inevitably, my ever-reliable slice produces an undesirable ricochet.

Except for the open links-style holes four, five and six, the course is a precipitous and muscular romp—not for the faint of heart! Fortify yourself with a protein bar. To restore your confidence, take a swing at Deerhurst’s gentler, shorter Lakeside course, that meanders around Peninsula Lake.
