“King West swank comes to Muskoka”
Reviewed 10 July 2014

very modern, yet in tune with the Muskokan surroundings make the CLUB HOUSE at Muskoka Bay club awe inspiring to view. perched on a cliff over looking the course and some few hundred acres of Muskoka bush and rock...great place for lunch or romantic dinner. nice pool...with again great views.

No where near Muskoka "bay" ,makes the name misleading, this development some 3-4 kms off Gravenhurst Bay, with top notch golf course, and modern towns make this a reasonably attractive development worth a visit.

DONT go in May/June, you will get eaten a live, as the development has much stagnant water all around and that means BUGS GALORE!!

“No. 1 rated golf course in Ontario”
Reviewed 8 September 2013

On vacation in the Muskoka area, decided to play this top rated Canadian golf course.
Got a tee time and was matched with another couple.
The course is really fantastic / its layout, playability, feeling all great and can highly recommend. All was well prepared from the minute I arrived at the bag drop off. Sercice on the course also great, even provided iced towels for refreshment, which I did not expect in Canada.
The price however is steep (overprized), paying more than CAD 200 during the week..! This is clearly too much, as for guests there is for example no locker and no towels provided, so had to shower back home.
The club house and the amenities are also excellent, with an infinity pool and in/outdoor eating facilities.
Would I go again - yes definitely, but only when I am willing to pay such an expensive green fee.

“Golf course wonderful.....CLub facilities wonderful Accomodations disappointing”
Reviewed 23 August 2013

Thje golf course is breath-taking, every hole is a postcard and the course is not easy!!! Greens fast, but readable... the club championship was the day before so extremely tough placement and lightning fast. The club facilities and the staff are absolutely wonderful. Starter and player assistants were great, wait staff in the club wonderful...Emily is a great asset to the food and beverage staff..as is Ashley and the Manager Christine.

The accommodations were less than wonderful for the price......too much money and no view of the course.....

“#1 Rated in Ontario?”
Reviewed 20 August 2013

The views are great from every hole! Many T-decks are elevated, the fairways accepting, the bunkers daunting BUT the greens are IMPOSSIBLE! They're just too tough! You must be a PGA Pro to putt them! Can you say frustrating? Maybe because the Club Championship was held yesterday (WITHOUT ANY WORD OF WARNING TO ME) they were even tougher but sorry … they're TOO TOUGH to putt. Every last ounce of fun wrung out from the punishment you get on those greens. Don't get me wrong … I've played Doug Carrick courses … plenty of them but the greens here? IMPOSSIBLE. It's tough to pay this much in order to feel like a 'duffer' when you know your skill set is better. You can keep the Score Magazine rating … I'll take my business elsewhere! At least if we'd known they were THIS FAST it would have been understandable. Other than the greens … the course is fine. Nice outcroppings … good service. But overall … overrated! #1? No … not really!
