Muskoka, ON (PRWEB) April 7, 2006
The best golf course in Ontario's cottage country is Deerhurst Highlands, according to results released today at the annual Toronto Sun Golfers' Choice Awards. Deerhurst Highlands, co-designed by Robert Cupp and Thomas McBroom and located just two hours north of Toronto, took "gold" in the category of "Best Course in Cottage Country."
"It's truly an honour to receive this award, especially since golfers do the voting," said Tyler Rafter, Head Professional at Deerhurst Resort.
"There have been a lot of quality courses built since Deerhurst Highlands introduced world class golf to Muskoka in 1990. Awards like this re-affirm our belief that Deerhurst Highlands should be at the top of everyone's 'must-play' list."
