Course History & Tour

arrowhead-signThis great game was meant to be enjoyed. That's what happens here.

Built in 1963 and located in Lowell, Michigan (just a stone's throw from Downtown Grand Rapids), Arrowhead Golf Course has become one of West Michigan's favorite public golf courses. Offering 18 unique holes that wind through wooded country terrain with plenty of natural elevation changes, you'll be hard pressed to find a better conditioned course with a finer blend of value, quality, and playability.

There are many adjectives used to describe Arrowhead's layout - fun, exciting, challenging, mischievous, sinister, quaint, and certainly never boring! The course layout is accessible for golfers of skill levels, but in order to score well golfers need to have a solid mental approach and know when to put away the driver. Over the past 10 years Arrowhead has steadily, relentlessy and methodically established a culture of constant improvement to evolve into one of Kent County's most beloved places to golf.

  • Hole #1

    Hole number one begins with an elevated tee for the men. Aim for pines on the right side, but don't slice too far right or your second shot will be a blind one. Second shot looks down on the green.
  • Hole #2

    Birdie opportunity! Aim to the right side of fairway, it will kick left. You will also keep the large maple tree guarding the left side of the green out of play. Too far left and you are in the woods or flirting with the maple. Beware of the new sand trap in the back left.
  • Hole #3

    A well positioned drive is very important here. Too far right or left and you'll be in trouble with woods. You might want to play one club down on the second shot as it takes aim at a slightly elevated green that is wider than it is deep. If you come up short you might find the rock quarry. Tough hole, be happy with a par.
  • Hole #4

    Hole number four offers a dramatic tee shot off an eleveated tee. Heavy hitters will be tempted to drive the green but the comma-shaped pond to the left should give them pause before attempting to reach the green in one. Whatever you do, DO NOT go long on your second shot or your ball will be long gone.
  • Hole #5

    Hole five is a dog-leg right that bends around a bog. This is another high risk, high reward shot off the tee. Big hitters will be tempted to cut distance by hitting over the bog. However, go too long and a pond guards the green, come up short and you will be in the bog.
  • Hole #6

    Hole six is a par three with a nice big green to aim at. Too far left and you have woods to contend with; too far right and you will find a bunker.
  • Hole #7

    Tough par four. Not much trouble off the tee, unless you are a heavy hitter and are right of fairway. You might get wet. Second shot is where the difficulty begins. The green will funnel balls to the right so aim left and hope for the best.
  • Hole #8

    Grip and rip it off the tee. Second shot is to the largest green on the course. Go for it, just avoid the trap to the left of the green!
  • Hole #9

    A creek guards the green. So you need to decide whether to lay up or go for the green on the second shot. Green tilts toward you and will hold a wood if you are in the middle of the green to the front. If you want to avoid three putting or even worse play from below the hole!
  • Hole #10

    This hole should be a layup. Big hitters can hit the green with their drive. The only trouble here is the trap on the left of the green. Enjoy the ease of this hole because it won't last long.....
  • Hole #11

    Play this hole with surgeon-like precison. Drive to the right side and aim at the last pine tree. Don't carry the ball too far or you'll have a tougher second shot. The second shot is the key. If you are sure that you will hit straight, go for it, but the percentage shot is your straightest iron. Hit towards the left side, becasue shots to the right will almost always go into the woods. Carry the shot to where the trees start by the green. Chip on the left side of the hole or it may carry off the green and down a very steep hill and into the woods. Good luck!
  • Hole #12

    A fun little par 4. Tight tee area is the only trouble here. If you hit too far left you will be in the woods. If you hit short and slice you will be in the apple orchard. Green is uphill if you miss long your ball will go down the backside.
  • Hole #13

    A memorable par 3. Don't miss too far left or right because the chip will be across a severely slanted green. Play below the hole.
  • Hole #14

    Long hole, your drive will be uphill. Don't miss right because it will hit the side of hill and carry into the woods unless you are lucky enough for the massive waste area to stop your ball. Line up your second shot with pines just left of the green. The green slants right and is tough to hold on your second shot.
  • Hole #15

    Always an exciting hole. The tee is elevated and club selection could be anything from a driver to a 5-iron depending on the wind. The red tees get a significant advantage off the tee.
  • Hole #16

    Another tight tee area for players playing off the white tees. More visual than anything else. Wide open if you miss right or left once the trees are cleared. You don't want to miss too far right or the giant willow will guard against hitting the green in two. If you do clear the willow a pond will gobble up anything too far right.
  • Hole #17

    Dog leg right, big hitters like to try to cut the corner. Beware of the trap guarding the corner and too far right is OB. If you clear the corner on the drive, aim at the pine tree on the left or to the left of the hickory tree. Many pars are here for the taking.
  • Hole #18

    Ranked as the toughest hole on the course. The tee shot offers options if playing the white tees. If you're feeling aggressive and choose to cut the corner you will need to navigate around the tall oak tree. In addition, if you don't get enough distance your second shot will be down in a gully. Hit it too far and your ball might get wet! A successful shot that cuts the corner will have you looking at 175 to the green. If you choose to play it safe and hit down the middle of fairway your second shot will be going up hill about 220.
