It really wasn't our intention to play in a tournament and review at the same time but since the "Ron Babcock Fall Classic" (2-man scramble) presented itself we didn't have to be asked twice.
Here's proof that tough pin placements can make a not so difficult course tougher than nails. The previous day my golfing partner and I each shot a round of 86. In the scramble we had a combined result of 87. Our 6 putt on hole #10 didn't help our cause.
Muskoka Highlands surprisingly, is a links style course. All the courses I've played in the Muskoka area have been cut through the forest and large outcroppings of rock is not unusual. Muskoka Highlands breaks this mold. The course is not overly long at just over 6000 yards from the tips and a par 69. A number of the par 3s are in excess of 200 yards (#2, #7, & #10) which makes a score of par very attractive on these holes.
The greens were exceptional, even this late in the season.
The fairways were extremely wet from a heavy rain two days previous. Taking the wetness into consideration I still thought the fairways needed a bit of work.
There is one lone tree on hole #18 that comes in to play. If you hit a tree anywhere else then you've hit an extremely bad shot.
