In 1922, Stanley Thompson carved out the first 9 holes of the original Bigwin Island Golf Course, with the back 9 following by 1930. The Bigwin Island Golf Club has been designed to capture and reflect the spirit and elegance of the original grand resort known as the "Bigwin Inn". The sweeping fairways drape naturally over the rugged Muskoka terrain, exposing glorious lake vistas at every turn and creating a sense of timeless beauty and tranquility. The course itself is a par 72 championship layout measuring 7,166 yards from the championship tees. The course is designed to provide challenge and enjoyment to golfers of all skill levels with a variety of tee locations measuring 6,742 yards from the blue tees, 6,287 yards from the white tees and 5,346 yards from the red tees. Each nine is a par 36 consisting of two par threes, two par fives and five par fours.
