Come stalk the Cat! The PohlCat masterpiece is set amidst white pines, century-old Red Oaks, groves of birch and hemlock, wetlands and the meandering Chippewa River, featuring the northernmost authentic USGA Best sand bunkers (the same sand used at world renowned Muifield Village).
The PohlCat is an honest course . . . by design at almost every hole, the flag is visible from the tee. Eight visual ponds and extensive mounding were created for aesthetic enjoyment . . . not penalizing hazards. Yet
there are numerous “risk & rewards” designed to challenge a golfer’s verve.
“PohlCat will test your skill, stimulate your psyche and challenge you from start to finish.” Dan Pohl
