The Deerhurst Resort is home to the highly rated Highlands course and the much shorter par-64 Lakeside course. The Highlands course is a championship layout that ranks with some of the best in Ontario.

This tree-lined parkland course provides a wonderful test for your all-round game, with many attractive, skilfully crafted and challenging holes to enjoy. A must play if you are in the area. At this Stay&Play venue, the on-site accommodations are located close to the golf facilities.
