Beware of plugged greens and limited holes!

I Love the course and had just played it the week previous. Unfortunately, after booking again through GolfNow I arrived on a beautiful fall day only to find the greens had all been aerated. To make matters worse, we were only allowed to replay 9 holes rather than 18 and the nine we played were neither the full front or back and they definitely weren’t among the best this course has to offer. Needless to say it was a huge disappointment because we thought we were booking 18-holes at a normally fabulous course.

Call for course restrictions if playing in the fall

This course has been on my "to play" list for a while. This course is not local to me but is regional. I was alerted at time of booking that the course was being aerated. That's a necessary task in the fall so I didn't let that deter me. However after my 90 minute drive, we checked in only to find out that holes 8 thru 16 were open to play and for the 18 holes we paid for we'd make the loop twice. There was NO NOTICE to the limited holes when booking. Checked their website after and nothing noted there either. So we played 9 holes and called it a day. The course from 8 thru 16 is nicely laid out and has its challenges. The carts are equipped with GPS. We did not purchase any food or beverage but is available.

Very Disappointed

First time playing the Pohlcat with my son celebrating his birthday. We were paired with two other players that were members. Our playing partners dropped out after the first 9 as it took 2 hrs and 45 min just for the front 9. My son and I waited on every single shot and finished the 18 hole round just under 6 hours. Needless to say it was our first and last time we will be playing the Pohlcat.

Championship features for “cheap”

Beautiful course with a great layout and tees for everyone. Big fan and wish I lived closer but definitely a ton of woman out there the Saturday evening I went (could be a league) so pace was ehh but still finished 18 starting around 3:45 by sunset.

Great course, bad hot dog

The fairways and greens were in great shape. The staff was great, especially when my wife phoned in a drink and lunch order and they brought it out to us on hole 10 (which is not near the clubhouse, if you don't know). One poor score would be for my hot dog. I think it was cooked 3 hours before I got it and the bun was stale. Still like the course and my wife liked her hamburger

Perfect except no ranger

We caught up with a group of 7 playing together on the 14th hole. Should have been a ranger on the course to break them up.
