Little 9 hole golf course. Really short and hilly but overall a decent course. Need a drink cart and debit machine.

Went to go skiing. Closed. The place is abandoned, no one around. Should take down the TODS road signs.

This place was abandoned by it's owners and left to rot and decay. They didn't even board it up so animals and weather have ravaged the building while wine glasses still sit on the tables.

Our family spent many enjoyable weekends at Talisman Ski Resort - friendly staff, family-oriented environment and wonderful meals! Sad to say, they are closed - we arrived to find the place abandoned. Refer http://www.simcoe.com/news/article/1118439--bank-put-talisman-in-receivership
