In 2013, Golfweek ranked Ontario Golf Resort, Rocky Crest Golf Club, sixth in its listing of the best Canadian courses of the modern era (post 1960).
Since it opened in 2000, this spectacular Thomas McBroom design has accumulated many such accolades, and justifiably so. Amidst the beauty of the surrounding giant forests of pine, white birch and hemlock, the rolling fairways will captivate you as the granite outcroppings challenge your skills.
This course is adjacent to the Rocky Crest Resort, a favourite among Ontario Golf Resorts in the Muskokas, and Lakeside at Rocky Crest, a fractional ownership vacation community. This premier Ontario golf course is presided over by an imposing pine-log lodge-style clubhouse and incorporates all the spine-tingling qualities of the Muskoka golf experience. With tees stretching from 6,936 yards down to 5,131, Rocky Crest is a delight for golfers of all abilities.

Rocky Crest Golf Club is aptly named for the appearance of the Canadian Shield on no less than 15 of its holes. This feature hole is a par 5 measuring 569 yards from the back tee with a forced carry over a smooth and beautiful granite ravine that requires your tee shot to carry 180 yards to reach the fairway. The topography of the fairway rolls it way up to the green protected by rock on the right and a steep drop off to the left, making it unique among Ontario golf courses. Only the longest of hitters have an opportunity to reach this hole in two shots with an extremely accurate approach required. This hole, like the entire course, is stunning from start to finish.
