POCKET GUIDE FROM THE  BLUE TEES

No. 1 hole,  185 yards.  Par 3

A difficult starting hole, a long iron or even a fairway wood is required to reach the elevated green, which is protected by sand traps and a large tree when the pin is on the right. Most players will push their ball left of the green.  A bogey is a good score.

 

No. 2 hole,  527 yards.  Par 5

This is a beautiful long hole down into the valley, not reachable in two. You have to cross about 150 yards of water hazard, and your second shot should be laid-up around the 100-yard marker as the river comes in play on both sides of the fairway. Your approach over a large sand trap will give you an easy par. 
 

No. 3 hole, 157 yards.  Par 3

This is the Club's signature hole, with an iron shot or 5 wood over the Magnetawan River to a small green, shaped like an upside down dish.  If you don't lose your ball in the water, you'll be glad with a bogey!  The drop area is 40 yards to the green.

 

No. 4 hole,  320 yards.  Par 4

A blind uphill tee-shot, with the CNR Railway as a lateral hazard on the right, towards a wide fairway. Your approach will be to a two-tiered green protected by a large sand trap. Leave your driver in your bag and with a good second shot, you'll make par.  

 

No. 5 hole,  455 yards.  Par 5

Our second par 5, where you can reach the green in two, giving you an eagle opportunity, this however requires a long accurate drive, over a water hazard, keeping it left and away from the lateral hazard on the right.  Then a perfect approach shot to an elevated green protected by a bunker.  In any case a birdie hole.

 

No. 6 hole,  370 yards.  Par 4

With a straight drive out of a shoot, a relative easy hole, except that the approach is too a small elevated green, surrounded by a deep rough, more typical of the British Open than the Muskokas.  Some prefer to lay-up in front to chip close to the pin for a par.

 


No. 7 hole,  312 yards.  Par 4

Our easiest hole, however it has the most difficult, undulating green and with any slice, or hook for a leftie, the approach may require a lob wedge to clear the trees protecting this beautiful green. With a straight fairway drive a good birdie opportunity.
 

No. 8 hole,  315 yards.  Par 4

A dog leg to the right requires an accurate long but blind iron tee-shot to around the 100 yard marker with a wedge shot towards a small green protected by a front bunker. However, with a driver one can get close to the green and a chance for a birdie.  
 

No. 9 hole,  170 yards.  Par 3

A not too hard finishing hole, although protected by sand traps, an acurate tee-shot can bring you within birdie range, to give you the opportunity to beat your partner or improve your score.
