Parry Sound Golf & Country Club is an 18-hole, par 71 course located in Parry Sound, Ontario, along Barry’s Channel in Georgian Bay. The original 9-hole course was established in 1929 before being replaced in 1982 with the Thomas McBroom design you see today. Like many of the courses in the Muskoka region, the terrain can be challenging as it’s been designed to flow seamlessly with the natural landscape. And in Muskoka, the landscape features a mix of rolling hills and rocky outcrops. And without a lot of expansive flat ground, expect multi-level greens and narrow fairways. Although it’s on the shorter side, measuring slightly under 6,000 yards from the back tees, you’ll need to rely on skill and precision on this course.
The holes are quite secluded from each other, so you don’t need to worry about sending your balls into someone elses fairway. Because of the natural aspects of this course, you might even get lucky and see a deer. There are also many ponds and wetland areas throughout the course. The on-site restaurant, Fairways Bar & Grill, has a view over the 18th hole from its patio and screened porch. The facilities also have a golf academy, driving range, and a pro shop, but the practice facilities are slightly up the road.
