Deerhurst Highlands

Deerhurst Highlands is now closed for the 2015 golf season.

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 100 golf courses of 2014 by SCOREGolf, Deerhurst Highlands continues to remain one of the top golfing destinations in Muskoka. 

Course Description | Par 72 | 7,011 yards

Taking full advantage of the dramatic landscape while capitalizing on elevation changes, rugged granite outcroppings and dense forests, Cupp and McBroom created a design that is a genuine representation of the region, while maintaining a highly playable, well-balanced course that has stood the test of time.

Despite its pro-level challenges, this 7,011 yard course is rewarding for a variety of playing levels. With 6 different tee deck levels including ladies, juniors and seniors, Deerhurst Highlands provides a golfing experience that is inclusive to a wide range of golfers. With a full service Pro Shop, golfers’ lounge and on-course food and beverage service to round out your golf experience, Deerhurst Highlands is committed to providing you with ultimate Muskoka golf experience.

Deerhurst: Granddaddy of Muskoka Golf | Anita Draycott, excerpts from Travel Industry Today (August 2014) 

The G8 Summit in 2010 may have put Deerhurst on the world map but the Deerhurst Highlands Golf Course maintains bragging rights as the granddaddy of Muskoka’s high-end, championship courses. Built in 1990, it was the brainchild of architects Robert Cupp and Thomas McBroom...

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, a par-64 that meanders around Peninsula Lake.
