Ontario's Top Rated Public Course
The Hugely Impressive Muskoka Bay Club sits at “The Gateway to the Muskoka Lake District”. Embedded in the southern tip of the Canadian Shield, Muskoka Bay’s landscape is marked by rugged rock formations, its lakes, and rivers having been carved into the Shield in prehistoric times by retreating glaciers. Doug Carrick used all of his experience to design a world-class layout that blends a golf course seamlessly into this beautiful piece of land.
The course opened for golf in 2006 to critical acclaim. The course quickly took its place as the Number 1 Rated Public Golf Course in all of Ontario and the 18th Ranked Course in all of Canada. Carrick’s creative routing takes the course over rocky cliff tops, through deep wooded valleys, and even around stunning wetlands. The result is a Masterpiece that has a wonderful flow from the start to the finish of your golf experience.
Golfers can expect some dramatic features such as elevation changes and tree-lined fairways that wind their way around the property. The views are simply stunning and almost every hole has a view of natural Muskokan rock formations. If you are lucky enough to golf here in Muskoka in the fall you will have a stunning visual memory that will last a lifetime.
Forced carries are par for the course and inevitable on such undulating terrain. Carrick however elevated many of the tees to give golfers a clear view of the landing area. This helped to keep the number of blind shots required to a minimum.
DOUG CARRICK DESIGN ARTICLE
Amid beautiful, sparkling lakes and breathtaking landscapes lies Carrick Design’s second Muskoka masterpiece – the Muskoka Bay Club. It’s the heart and soul of the area’s largest recreational golf community, an 850-acre development hidden from the hustle and bustle of the city at “The Gateway” to Ontario cottage country.
For this project, we took the most rugged terrain and thoughtfully adapted it to create one of the most visually stunning golf courses to be found anywhere. Our client asked us to leave the less rocky land for the 1,000-unit $500 million eco-friendly master-planned residential community in order to minimize servicing costs. It turned out to be a brilliant strategy, as our design team turned rocky cliffs, deep valleys, scenic wetlands, and dense woodlands into an impressive layout that flows effortlessly through the rugged Muskoka ridges. This is a course that builds with suspense and excitement from start to finish yet it’s designed to be extremely player-friendly when played from the appropriate tees. Finding the perfect routing took time, patience, and creativity from our design team. The dramatic elevation changes, thought-provoking shot values, undulating fairways, ragged bunkers, and subtle greens create a series of uniquely memorable golf holes – each punctuated by Muskoka’s signature natural rock outcroppings – have made it the talk of the town and the place to play in Muskoka.
