A Unique Golf Vacation… Muskoka Style
Imagine a mini golf vacation where you can literally walk out of the office door after a day of work and within 45 minutes are touching down on a beautiful cottage country lake, whisked away in a golf cart to first hole and teeing off at one of Muskoka’s finest golf courses!
This kind of golf travel is becoming more and more popular with those people who are short on time but have a few dollars to spend and want to experience all that golfing can be.
The Muskoka lakes region is famous not only as premier North American cottage country but home to some of the finest golf courses in the country. And the proximity of many of these premier golf courses to easily accessible lakes and even local airports makes the Muskokas a perfect location for more and more discerning golfers opting to take advantage of golf charter flights – the latest golf vacation trend.
Golf Vacation Companies
There are several golf charter flight companies in Ontario that offer direct service from the greater Toronto area airports such as Buttonville, Island airport, Port Credit and even Lester B Pearson. Take your pick from beautifully refurbished beavers to helicopters.
The point is you don’t necessarily have to travel far from the office to get picked up and whisked away, high above the congestion that can turn a cottage country drive into a 2 or 3 hour ordeal.
Depending on your preference you can make your golf trip short and play your game, enjoy a meal and fly back to the city in the same day or stretch it out a bit over a couple days, a weekend or longer to really make it a full golf vacation. The prices quoted are usually per person but this assumes that there is a group of golfers. Here are the main companies offering this kind of golf vacation.

- Ultimate Travel Group - 905-755-0999
This company is offers a variety of vacation packages but has specifically offered fly-in golf trips to the Muskoka region. The trips are based on a foursome travelling together but offer the convenience of selecting pretty much any golf course where there is a nearby landing strip or lake. The prices are $600 and up per person during prime season but include green fees, lunch at the golf course club house and some onboard snacks. Not cheap by any means but then they cater to a specific crowd who are so pressed for time that this is a great opportunity to relax, socialize or network with clients and work on your golf game all the while being surrounded by some of the most beautiful country in Canada.
As the name suggests you can fly in a charter helicopter to your course with this company. They fly specifically to the Taboo course near Gravenhurst and operate out the Buttonville airport northeast of Toronto near Markham. This will cost you about $400 and up.
