Opened 2005 in Muskoka, Ontario

Oviinbyrd is a bold and unique design by the architect who helped transform the Muskoka region into one of the world's newest golf destinations. Oviinbyrd is not devised of two loops of nine like most modern courses; instead, the routing wanders away from the clubhouse, using the original contours to discover a natural path. This makes Oviinbyrd one of the finest walking courses in Muskoka and gives the course a classic, timeless feel. Tom McBroom's design harmonizes with the heavily forested setting and ever-present Canadian Shield rock. McBroom found lay-of-the-land opportunities for many greens, which make them appear part of their natural surroundings while presenting more difficulty than initially meets the eye. Oviinbyrd is one of the most successful private clubs to open in Canada in recent memory.

Awards & Accolades

“It is the land, the greens and the layout that make a golf course stand apart... Oviinbyrd had all of that to offer and more… It is also a rock solid course where Thomas McBroom’s risks have become the player’s reward.”
