Rob Pfohl

Tournament Director

A Minnesota native, Rob moved to Colorado in 1986. He started his career in the construction industry, but has been in the golf industry for 22 years, all of which at Applewood Golf Course. His time at Applewood began with a volunteer position following his passion for golf, which quickly turned into a full-time position. Rob currently holds a dual role of Tournament Director and Assistant General Manager, so you may see him running around helping with just about everything. If you have spent any time at Applewood over the past 8 years you may also know Rob's best friend Ace, our course dog. We sadly had to say goodbye to Ace last fall, but he will forever be in all of our hearts and you will soon find a little tribute to him on his favorite hole!

Tournament Reviews

I run a tournament every year for 23 continuous years. Other than the first few years, it has always been hosted by Applewood and their wonderful management team - Rob Pfohl, every year, with support from Ashley Van Dissel this year.  Everything about the course, from its difficult to easy holes, its wonderful scenery throughout, the clubhouse, drinks, food, pro shop, etc., makes this an event we all look forward to and discuss throughout the year.  The mgmt team is outstanding at making all of us feel very important and they are continually going far beyond expectations to assure our entire group leaves with a very memorable, fun experience.  I highly recommend Applewood Golf Course for any type of golf, whether for a tournament or a round of golf. I am quite confident you too will leave very satisfied with what Applewood has to offer (especially for the price).

Very nice course .. they have a very friendly people here.. the holes are well planned out  and ..i do enjoy coming here on the weekends .. one small hiccup for me is that it gets a little backed up at times and  it makes me lose my rhythm... other then that very nice place to enjoy the woods.
