A Michigan top ten for sure.

Challenging layout, with wide open fairways on the long holes and tight on the short holes. In great condition (except for all the unfixed ball marks on the greens, come on people). We saw hawks, turkeys and herons in this beautiful natural setting just minutes from the casino. One of michigans best.

Stalk the Cat, you won't regret it.

Course is awesome. With Golf Now hot deal, unbeatable experience. Cloudy misty day kept the crowd down. Played in under 3.5 hours on a beautiful course.

Horribly slow pace of play

We secured a reasonable tee time with the knowledge that a league would be out on the course but shouldn't cause any issues. It took a friend and myself NEARLY FOUR HOURS to play eight holes. We left the course out of frustration. There were no staff to be found to encourage an even remotely reasonable pace of play. There was no way we were going to bother waiting so we could take seven plus hours to play 18.

PohlCat Review

My husband and I really enjoyed the course. Golfing in the late fall with all the leaves etc... is always challenging and this course was loaded with trees, but we loved it. The fall colors were beautiful. I will golf it many more times.

nice course

This is one of the nicest courses I played this season with very fast and true greens. When around the Mount Pleasant area I always try to play this track when able to get a good price.

Pohlcat GC

GN offers great deals for Pohlcat in Mount Pleasant and it is worth the drive. The facilities are great and although the course was busy, the staff remained friendly and kept up a great pace of play. The greens here were quick and the majority of the course tee to green was in excellent shape. The course gives a good mix of links-ish holes and tree-lined wooded holes which provided a unique challenge. Not to mention the course is only ~5min from the Soaring Eagle Casino. You can make a great day out of your trip. Will return to "Stalk the Cat" again soon.

PohlCat

1st time playing here. My wife and I played as a 2some with 7:30AM tee time. 2 men teed off at 7AM and we followed right behind. 3 hour round. Very nice design, only negative comment is that on some fairways and some tee boxes, no one uses the sand filler, hence big divots and sod. Greens were nice sized and very fair on their designs, no massive swales or humps. Would definitely play again.

Northern Michigan layout, centrally located

For me, this course is a once or twice a year thing, as the rates are a bit pricey for me, although 60-70 bucks not bad for some people.

The layout is gorgeous. Some of the challenges that awaits are wooded holes and some of the open variety. Absolutely love #2 over the Chippewa River as well as #17. Paid $55 on July 4th which was great value.

The fairways are wide and forgiving for the most part and the greens roll TRUE everytime. Alot of acreage is covered by this layout and I will always try to play here at least once a year.

Pohlcat is worth seeing.

For me it was a bit tight but definitely playable. I wish i could have used driver more. With that said just play smart and enjoy the course from the fairway!

Easily playable.

this course plays long. It is well maintained with a nice clubhouse. It's a continuous 18 so they have a very efficient food and beverage cart for your convenience.

Good shape for early in the year

Had a nice afternoon didn't have a problem with being held up. The course was a little wet but all in all it was nice to break 90 early in the year and get a jump start.
