North Granite Ridge is an 18-hole championship golf course set within 320 acres of forest just outside of Port Sydney, Ontario. The golf course is incredibly scenic, and a staple of the Muskoka region, with many opportunities for wildlife sightings, including white-tailed deer. It was built in 1999, and designed by golf course architect Jason Miller. He took advantage of the elevation changes in the design, so expect lots of elevated tees with picturesque views. On holes like hole 3, you’ll tee off right on top of a granite ridge, but watch out for deep bunkers guarding the two-tiered green. While the course doesn’t have much for natural water hazards, the greens can be challenging and the fairways are narrow and tree-lined, so accuracy is key or you’ll lose lots of balls!
North Granite Ridge also has a golf academy, driving range and putting green to sharpen your game. The clubhouse features an on-site restaurant that seats 60 people, with a outdoor deck that looks out over the final hole. Or for those who want to catch a sporting event, there are many big-screen TVs inside the llog-cabinesque clubhouse. The on-site restaurant is called Tap & Grill and they have a variety of starts and main dishes, along with wing nights on Wednesdays. You can also grab some drinks and snacks at their Halfway House.
