One of the golf world’s best but least known destinations (outside of Canada, that is) can be found two hours north of Toronto. A favorite vacation destination for Ontario residents, the Muskoka area has some of the country’s best courses, like Muskoka Bay. Doug Carrick incorporated the rocky outcroppings that are part of the Canadian Shield into the layout along with significant elevation changes, which start on the opening hole. Wetlands also come into play, like off the tee on the par 4 9th, where rocks tightly squeeze the opening to an elevated green. The uphill par-5 14th is a beast, and all off the par-3s call for a carry over water. Max fee: $199 (Photo: Julie Medley)
