Bigwin Island Golf Club-Muskoka Golf

Bigwin Island Golf Club #6

This is the hole that everyone that has played Bigwin talks about. My one opportunity to play this Muskoka golf course was rained out but I intend to get there very soon.

What they have to say:
Without a doubt the most spectacular view on the course is from the back tee on the 6th hole. To the east lies the breathtaking view over the treetops of the 6th fairway to a cluster of islands rising out of the lake. To the west, through the trees, lies a glimpse of the clubhouse with its elegant reflection shimmering in the quiet waters of the protected bay. The tee shot provides a lot of hang time on this 462 yard par four, as the ball plummets to the fairway over 100 feet below. Two bunkers on the left frame the fairway and provide a frame of reference for the target area. The optimum angle into the large undulating green is from the left side. A deep treacherous bunker guards the right side and a gentle grass depression flanks the left. The 6th hole looks ominous on the scorecard, but should play much shorter than the yardage indicates.
