Muskoka’s latest new Golf Gem ‘ Taboo’ is located in the small town of Gravenhurst, The Gateway to Muskoka. In keeping with the ‘Canadian Shield’ terrain in this part of the world, you can expect to experience a course with unique granite rock formations, wonderful elevation changes, and Towering Treelines.
Taboo is a fun all-round fun experience. The staff are excellent and the waiting area near the first tee has a fun zone that often has music playing where you can purchase drinks and hit balls onto a cool Island Green before you play the course. There’s also an excellent Gastro Pub and rooftop terrace to check out after your round.
The Course, which plays to 7340 yards. was designed by golf course architect Ron Garl. Garls’s other Canadian projects included the excellent Wooden Sticks which has replica holes from many of the best courses in the world including St Andrews and Augusta.
Taboo opened to a ton of hype back in 2002, having aligned itself with Canada’s Mike Weir who was about to win The Masters, and own an illustrious Green Jacket. The course was to be the centerpiece of the newly restored Muskoka Sands resort and was marketed as a destination course of the highest caliber just two and a half hours north of Toronto.
Taboo was widely advertised as Weir’s “home course” and while I’d bet that he visited the course less than a handful of times over the years, it proved to be quite the partnership for Taboo, especially when Weir won three times in 2003 and locked up his first and only major to this date in the Master’s Tournament.
Taboo will not disappoint – it is one of the prettiest courses you will ever see. Garl utilizes the wonder of the Canadian Shield to tremendous effect, routing the course around the myriad granite outcroppings on the property. The effect is stunning, to say the least.
