Review of Deerhurst Highlands Golf Course

Deerhurst Highlands Golf Course
More attraction details
Attraction details
Owner description: The forerunner of Muskoka's popularity as a golf destination, par 72 Deerhurst Highlands remains a must-play renowned for its layout which flows naturally through a rugged yet lush landscape of granite outcroppings, deep valleys and heavy forests. Beyond the drama of holes like #10, where tees perch 30 feet above a rock wall, and surprises like a links-style swirl, playability is key throughout this top-rated 7,011-yard challenge. Featuring practice facility, seasonal lounge and comprehensive Golf Academy.

“It's a tough one”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 June 2013

Loved this course. A good game is more about course management that trying to kill the ball. It's humbling for sure. If you love a challenge, you will love this course

“A treat to experience and play”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 October 2012

I very much liked the design, flow and landscape. This course takes advantage of the natural features and terrain to create one of the best golf course layouts I have experienced. Nice to have tee box options and all tees, fairways and greens were in good condition. Definitely a must to play again.

“disappointing compared to Grandview”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 August 2012

The Highlands course wasn't anything special to me. Considering we had played Grandview the day before and there really isn't any comparison between the two. Grandview was beautiful whereas Highlands was not special to look at or play. Sorry for the average rating.
