Heavenly

Golfed 18 today, my only complaint was the greens must have been recently aerated but the fairways were in beautiful shape! Awesome golf for late September

Another great round

This was my 4th or 5th round at The Cat this year and, as usual, the staff was VERY friendly and, more importantly, the course was in FANTASTIC condition. I hope I can get one more round in this year at The Cat before the snow flies!!!

Great falls golf

Course was in great condition and you could tell it is well maintained.
There were plenty of golfers on the course
in groups of 2 and 4 but play was not slow. Just well paced.

ALWAYS GREAT!

The "cat" continues to impress me with their course maintenance. It seems to be in great shape all the time. The golf cart fleet is new(er) as well with on-board GPS which is really a nice feature.

Nice Mid Michigan Getaway

Had not played in a few weeks and used to Arizona desert courses, so this became a little challenging. Course condition was a little weathered. All in all a nice day.

Worth it if your willing to sacrifice what you paid for.

Course is not worth $50. Rack rate is currently $78. The course conditions have continued to slip in the past few years. Rough had a lot of weeds and the greens were still really bumpy from aeration. It is a good track, although holes 7-12 are really bland. Pace of play was also terrible. We got stuck behind a weekend warrior foursome that wouldn't let us through. No ranger around to tell them to let us pass. There was like five holes open in front of them by time we got out to #8 where you can see the rest of the course.

Early season golf

Course was in good shape for early season. Offered exceptional deal on Golf Now. Enjoyed the round and the clubhouse staff was exceptional considering the current restrictions in Michigan. Play a lot of golf around Michigan and other locations and Pohlcat is a great option, especially with the golf now deal.
