A Bracebridge, Ont. golf course is offering to “pay” golfers to play a round of golf. Muskoka Highlands is willing to cover the cost of gasoline for golfers who make the drive to play the course.

“We are blessed to have so many golfers excited enough to travel up to 200 kilometres to reach us,” Don MacKay, president at Muskoka Highlands, says. “We wanted to give Canadian golfers a little something back as a thank you.”

The offer comes with provisions:

  1. Book your foursome tee time online on any day after 1p.m.
  2. Fill up your gas tank within 24 hours before your tee time.
  3. Head to Muskoka Highlands
  4. Submit your gas receipt when you arrive to check in, and you will get it credited back to your credit card

Since the golf course is trying to promote a reduction in emissions, it is encouraging carpooling. consequently, reimbursements are limited to one gas tank refund per group of four golfers. Additionally, online reservations are required because the golf course is popular and tee times fill up fast.

The offer is available on 18 hole green fees for a foursome after 1 p.m. on any day of the week. Only one gas receipt will be reimbursed for a foursome. Foursomes who wish to play nine holes will be reimbursed with a gas card valued at $50.


The arrangement has been made amid escalating gasoline prices. Muskoka Highlands has initiated a couple of other unique measures that allow golfers to bring their dogs and pay for memberships based on their ages.
