Hole #1 You’ll begin your play at Arrowhead with a straight forward hole. Your approach shot here is key due to the undulating green that can set you up for an akward sidehill, downhill putt. Be careful!
1 PAR 4
Hole #2 A straight drive is required here. Bunkers guard the right side of the fairway with out-of-bounds on the left. The approach shot has to be right on to stay out of the bunkers that guard each side of the green. When the pin is tucked back left, you won’t find a more challenging shot anywhere!
2 PAR 4
Hole #3 The first par three. Forest lines the left tightly while a bunker protects the right front. Slightly uphill, almost always into a light breeze, this hole can test you from the back.
3 PAR 3
Hole #4 Hole four and the interest factor is picking up. A par five, dogleg left with a huge oak splitting the fairway. Two terraces form the approach area and a serious gulch heavy with ornamental grasses awaits anyone who is courageous enough to go for the green in two. The smallish green is tucked into the trees and bunkered right. A covered bridge forms the backdrop for this beautiful golf hole.
4 PAR 5
Hole #5 This par 3 is a real challenge for putting the ball where you want to. The green slopes down on the front and falls away at the back. Be careful, there’s a deep ravine in front and sand in the back! Par is good for this hole. Take it and move on.
5 PAR 3
Hole #6 A beautiful golf hole with panoramic vistas. One hundred foot elevation drop tee to green. Your drive must carry the rough off the tee to have a shot at the green in two and if you’re playing the blacks and don’t belong there, it won’t. The large green sits behind a deep ravine with water.
6 PAR 4
Hole #7 Number seven gives a little breather. A dogleg right and water guards all the way on the left but the landing area for your tee shot is huge and the green easily reachable in two. Enjoy.
7 PAR 4
Hole #8 Perhaps the most difficult hole on the course – at least it’s handicapped that way. A dogleg left over water gets you started. Woods and river define the left side, while water awaits anyone straying to the right. Your second shot is a long carry to a tight green. Many will choose to lay up – and wisely so.
8 PAR 4
Hole #9 A long tight par five, uphill most of the way. The green will be above you for your approach and this makes for an interesting shot, one we don’t often get to use.
9 PAR 5
Hole #10 A par four that goes uphill halfway and downhill to the green. Trouble lurks left so stay right center if you can. This hole plays longer than it shows, mostly because of the long uphill carry required of the tee shot.
10 PAR 4
Hole #11 Number eleven is an uphill, dogleg left, par five that has double fairway bunkers protecting against any casual cutting of the corner. Play left though, and you can shorten the hole considerably. Do you dare?
11 PAR 5
Hole #12 Straight-away par three. Made interesting by an elongated green that can change the hole length by thirty yards. The green curls around a large bunker on the right so the pin can be hidden. If the Superintendent was in a generous mode, an easy hole. Otherwise …
12 PAR 3
Hole #13 Just a slight dogleg left and easily reachable in two, the green will be a little below you when you approach. The start of four downhill holes.
13 PAR 4
Hole #14 The pond with a fountain off the tee boxes is pretty but doesn’t come into play on this long dogleg left. The longest hole on the course at 521 yards from the black tees, it doesn’t play that long because of the downhill slope after your tee shot. The beautiful green is surrounded by trees, guarded by a diagonal ravine in front and a large bunker on the lower left.
14 PAR 5
Hole #15 A tight tee shot (slight fade is preferable) leads to a downhill approach to a round green with a single pot bunker directly in front. One of the most uncomplicated, yet interesting, holes on the course.
15 PAR 4
Hole #16 Tee boxes are tucked tightly into the trees and open onto a wide landing area. Elevated, tiered green awaits. Play to the low side of the flag or you may find yourself practicing putting.
16 PAR 4
Hole #17 This par three can play longer than it looks. At 205 from the back with water right and bunkers left and right it takes a sure shot to make for an easy par.
17 PAR 3
Hole #18 Great finishing hole. Uphill par four, dogleg right. Trouble on the right all the way home. Small green is bunkered right front. Tough to stick your second shot but if you do the satisfaction will last well into the clubhouse.
18 PAR 4
