Pine Hills Golf - The North Star Mohican Casino
Golf and Gaming
By Brian Weis
The ultimate guys weekend is golf, gambling and Packer football. Located in the dense Wisconsin forest, just an hour northwest of Green Bay lies "Man-Cation" Utopia.
Pine Hills is a north woods golf at its finest. Director of Golf, Lloyd Young summed the course to a tee, "You have four holes to get your act together before the course tightens up on you. The remaining holes will require good decisions off the tee and well excited shots."
Lloyd raved about the lengthy 531 yard par 5 eleventh. I think the meat of the course starts here and ends at the 19th hole.
If you are looking to get away from it all or need a break from the tables Pine Hills is an nature lovers dream. My round was a peaceful four hour journey that encompassed all of Wisconsin wildlife including wild turkey, whitetail deer and everything in between.
Do not take my word for it, check out what Tom Sutton has recently said about the course and casino.
