“Tough course, especially in the fall when leaves abound”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013

This a Nick Faldo course and he must have found every rock in the Canadian Shield. This course is aptly named. Keep the ball on the fairway or pay the price, especially when the leaves drop in the autumn. Stunningly beautiful but long. Sometimes it is 200 metres just to the next tee from the last green. Lots of tee blocks for every handicap and I suggest you play the blocks suited to your handicap. The course has guidelines to assist. If you are a 20 handicap DO NOT play the back tees; it just slows everyone down and you will not enjoy the game.

Clubhouse restaurant was great and well priced. Golf was not cheap but decent value.

Scenic and a true test of golf - rocks everywhere hence the name. Great staff and an all round pleasure to play especially with the colours in the fall !!

“Intimidating but beautiful golf course”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

The Rock is a beautiful golf course, it was just way beyond my capabilities. I have only been golfing for about 4 years and although I do golf regularly, there were some holes here I didn't even attempt! The restaurant with its beautiful outdoor patio is wonderful and a good place to relax after a very challenging game of golf. Expert golfers will love this course - it was designed by a pro and you can tell! Grounds are beautifully kept.

“Treat in the Muskokas!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

Elegant resort with fabulous views and well appointed rooms. The dining experience is sketchy as the food is so inconsistent
