The Rock Golf Club in Muskoka Reopens to Rave Reviews

(EMAILWIRE.COM, July 18, 2008 ) Muskoka, Ontario – Closed for the 2007 golf season to facilitate a series of improvements, the award winning The Rock Golf Club (http://www.therockgolf.com) re-opened on Thursday, May 22 to rave reviews. Completed course upgrades have made a great golf course even better.

The Rock Golf Club is a classic Muskoka golf club that established itself from the start as one of Canada’s finest golf courses. Voted best new golf club in Canada when it originally opened in 2004, The Rock Golf Club, quickly earned a reputation with golfing enthusiasts as a course that was technically challenging as well as spectacular in beauty. Designed by golfing legend Nick Faldo - his first golf course to be built in Canada, The Rock Golf Club hugs the shoreline of beautiful Lake Rosseau, one of Muskoka’s premier lakes. The 6545-yard course, carved out of the rugged Canadian Shield, is truly distinctive with tight tree-lined fairways, strategically placed ponds and bunkers, slopping greens, sheer rock walls and the ever-present large granite rock outcroppings from which the course was named.

Managed by Marriott Golf, one of the world’s foremost golf course operators, The Rock closed back in the fall of 2006 for the planned modifications. These renovations, which were overseen by Nick Faldo and implemented by his design team, included the redesign of six holes, the expansion of the tee areas and widening fairway landing zones. This massive project also included alterations to 14 holes, the removal of 16,480 square feet of surface rock and the reconstruction of all greenside bunkers.

Completed renovations of The Rock Golf Club and its scheduled reopening had been planned to coincide with the highly anticipated opening later this summer of The Rosseau, the prestigious new JW Marriott Resort and Spa at Red Leaves. The Rock’s improved course will compliment the world-class amenities of The Rosseau, a 221-room luxury resort that includes a spa, marina and a 700-acre nature reserve; further enhancing Muskoka’s reputation as a leading destination resort area.

“The modifications that we have made at The Rock were specifically intended to improve the overall playing experience for golfers of all skill levels and further establish The Rock’s reputation as one of the most spectacular courses in Canada,” states Greg Downer, Director of Golf, The Rock Golf Club. “I am confident that the improvements that we have made have done just that. The positive feedback that we have been receiving from golfers since we reopened in May has been phenomenal. People are saying that the course is now better then ever,” adds Downer.
