Deerhurst Highlands Golf Course

May 17 – October 13

Par 72 | 7,011 yards

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 which established the benchmark for golf courses in the region and sparked Muskoka’s emergence as a major, must-play Canadian golf destination. Ranked as one of Canada’s top 59 public golf courses 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.

Grab a bite at the Highlands Halfway House or at The Antler after your round.

Public green fees:  Include shared power cart and access to warm-up range. HST extra.

Deerhurst Lakeside Golf Course

May 10 – October 13

Ontario Golf’s “Hidden Gem”

Deerhurst Lakeside offers a picturesque and challenging 9-hole golf experience in a stunning lakeside setting. True to the Muskoka landscape, you will find yourself hitting from elevated tees, approaching slick undulating greens from deep valleys, and being challenged by strategic water hazards and deep bunkers. The original course was built in 1966, designed by respected Canadian architect C.E. (Robbie) Robertson, and was then redesigned by Thomas McBroom in 1988. The course redesign made Deerhurst Lakeside into one of Canada’s truly unique resort courses. 

For a quick round or a chance to warm up before the big links, Deerhurst Lakeside lets you use every club in your bag. The driving range, practice green and well-equipped Pro Shop are great places to gear up and fine-tune your game.
