One of only a handful of 18-hole layouts, Arrowhead Country Club was designed from acres of orange groves in 1986. It has managed to set itself apart from the rest with its award-winning design from the renowned golf legend Arnold Palmer and his right-hand man Ed Seay, who also conceived the nearby Legend at Arrowhead. The private Country Club is a traditional design with plenty of grass, 63 strategic (and oftentimes large) bunkers and 12 scenic lakes that bring water into play on 18 holes. It offers a masterful blend of MiniVerde Bermuda greens and Bermuda grass fairways.
A popular repeat-play venue of mostly vacationing golfers and locals alike, the private Arrowhead Country Club has attracted members from many corners of the US. This complex offers 2 distinctly unique 9-hole designs which showcase large undulating greens and generous, rolling fairways that place a premium on precision and claim their fair share of 3-putts. It features some of the most meticulously groomed holes you will find anywhere. Leave your approach-shot on the wrong tier, and the greens will take a toll. Arnold likes to say that he hopes that his course designs are distinctly different yet they have one common characteristic, one can see what they’re facing when you stand on a-tee without having to guess about what may lay in wait. There are 5 sets of tees ranging from 5,282-yards to 7,001-yards, with a rating of 73.2 and sloping of 124 from the tips.
Arrowhead Country Club offers another option, known as “The Players Course,” which combines 3 holes from the back tees, 6 from the middle, 7 from the front and 2 from the ladies tees. The popular rotation plays at 6,474-yards with a rating of 70.5 and sloping of 122. The golf course starts strong with a 396 yard par-4, where your tee shot has to contend with fairway bunkers on the left and a lake on the right. The second shot needs good distance control with fairway bunkers guarding the front-and-back of the green. Three of the par 3s play longer than 200-yards from the back tees, which includes the testy 3rd hole at 202 with its green protected by a lake in-front and fairway bunkers to the left and rear. Number 8, also at 396-yards, is a superb risk-reward hole since the further you hit your tee-shot, the more the lake on your right comes into play. Its undulations make this one of the toughest green-surfaces to read.
