THE LAKE JOSEPH CLUB
When The Lake Joseph Club opened in 1997, it caused jaws to drop around the golf world. Architect Thomas McBroom utilized the granite crags, towering trees and heaving topography of the incomparable Muskoka regions with such success that the course named the best new course in country by Golf Digest.
Five tee decks stretch from 6,995 yards down to 5,081. A nine-hole Academy Course complements its big brother on the shore of picturesque Lake Joseph.
Feature Hole #8
This par 3, measuring from 158 to 120 yards features a significantly elevated teeing area to a green set at the bottom of a valley. The shot requires accuracy to a long narrow green and the correct club to compensate for the change in elevation and swirling winds. This hole captures the topography of the property, as well as the rocky face to reflect upon where you are in Muskoka.
