Gravenhurst, ON – Taboo Golf Course & Resort once again welcomes the Men’s & Senior Men’s Match Play Championship from June 7-10. The Men’s features a 64-player bracket while the Senior Men’s will showcase 32 players all competing to come out on top.
Taboo will offer competitors a challenging layout carved into the dramatic Canadian Shield landscape. Consistently voted among Canada’s Top 100 courses and renowned for its panoramic beauty, the Taboo golf course is a captivating gateway to Muskoka, one of Canada’s truly outstanding golf destinations. Managing Director of Taboo Muskoka Resort and Golf, Nigel Hollidge, shared that “the course is in the best condition it’s been in in years. We wintered really well, the spring has offered very good growing conditions, and we hired a new Superintendent this year, Owen Leewith, who has been wonderful. All around, we are very happy with the condition of the golf course.” When asked about the challenge competitors may experience, Hollidge let on that the turf team plans to quicken the greens. “If we are able to get the green speed up, which I think we will be able to, I do see the greens being a challenge for the players. The rough will be challenging, but Taboo is not an easy golf course that’s for sure. I think the players will find it challenging, but fair.”
Tee times for the round of 64 begin at 7:30 am on June 7th with a split start off one and ten. For more information and to follow along with the leaderboard, visit the Championship Golf Genius page.
