What sets Monterra Golf apart from other courses isn’t just the golf – it’s the ability to step off the 18th green and into Ontario’s only mountain village resort. Enjoy an après-tee beverage and meal at one of the resort’s many patios, shop or take in a wide-selection of events and activities.
If you’re new to Monterra Golf or looking to take a few strokes off your next round, here are a few tips that might help improve your scorecard:
Use the new GPS software installed in all carts: Monterra has a challenging layout, reaching 6,581 yards from the Gold Tees, with 86 bunkers, as well as ravines, creeks, seven lakes, some spectacular elevated tee shots and a few dog legs to boot! The new, state-of-the-art GPS software, manufactured by Visage, greatly enhances the golf experience and makes tracking your location to the pin much easier.
Sometimes it’s better to club down from the tee deck: Monterra has a diverse range of holes many with strategically placed bunkers, water hazards and ravines. While you may limit your birdie opportunities it’s sometimes better to avoid bogeys and just lay up off the tee! Trust me. You’ll use every club in your bag during your round!
Take in the scenic vistas: The beautiful mountain vistas, that are particularly colourful in autumn, provide the perfect setting to calm down after a poorly played shot or missed putt. Monterra features some of the area’s most scenic golf holes – take a breath, spend a moment with nature and then move on to your next par!
Practice makes perfect (or improves your game at least): Take advantage of the large putting and chipping area located at the Monterra practice area. For a true challenge, test your putting ability with a round on Blue Mountain’s new Cascade Putting Course. This challenging, 18-hole putting course is the perfect way to sharpen your skills before teeing-off at Monterra.
