The Bigwin Island Golf Club has been designed to capture & reflect the spirit and elegance of the original grand resort known as the “Bigwin Inn”. The sweeping fairways drape naturally over the rugged Muskoka terrain, exposing glorious lake vistas at every turn and creating a sense of timeless beauty & tranquility.
The course itself is a par 72 championship layout measuring 7,166 yards from the championship tees. The course is designed by world renowned Golf Course Architect Doug Carrick, and his design provides challenge and enjoyment to golfers of all skill levels with a variety of tee locations measuring 6,742 yards from the blue tees, 6,287 yards from the white tees and 5,346 yards from the red tees. Each nine is a par 36 consisting of two par threes, two par fives and five par fours.
Every hole is surrounded by mature hardwoods, creating a sense of maturity and character typically found on the great classic courses built during the early 1900’s. The holes are routed in a variety of directions over the undulating island terrain, creating constantly changing shot values, wind directions and challenges. The greens are relatively generous in size and are gently contoured to provide subtle yet one of the enjoyable challenges for every golfer.
The bunkers are what give the Bigwin Island Golf Club its character and another of its challenges; 75 bunkers are strategically located to provide definition, beauty and challenges to the course design. A local golden silica sand has been placed in the bunkers giving Bigwin Island Golf Course its own unique look.
The highlights of the course layout are the ‘Look Out’ 6th hole and the spectacular Lakeside Finish on the 18th hole. However, every hole at Bigwin Island Golf Club offers its own unique challenges and spectacular natural beauty.
