Port Carling

Opened 1991, Renovated 2008 in Port Carling, Ontario

One of McBroom's earlier creations in Ontario's rugged Muskoka region, Port Carling is a complete test of golf in a wondrous wilderness setting within the historic town of Port Carling. Not long at just more than 6,300 yards, this compact par 72 layout is given its distinct character by McBroom's clever routing over a relatively limited acreage. The hallmarks are narrow tree-lined fairways and small greens, which give the course its teeth. More than 100 feet of elevation change thrusts the holes up and down over the heaving topography of the craggy Canadian Shield. Shot values are demanding, and every hole has a unique and dramatic personality. The current owner has been breathed new life into the course by hiring McBroom to enhance the look with new bunkering, new grassing, and numerous improvements. It has been a “renaissance” for this unique Muskoka course. 

Awards & Accolades

“Tom has used the natural landscape of Muskoka highlighting the rock, water and elevation within his first solo design to create 18 holes of golf so enjoyable that before you have finished, you start planning your return to what has become Muskoka’s premier private golf facility.” Michael H. DeGroote, President and Owner
