~History of Arrowhead GC~

Arrowhead GC is a family owned and operated golf course. Its professional staff has close to 100 years of combined experience. This club is known for its condition and aesthetics. Superintendent JC Clarizio is part of the family that owns the club, so you better believe that he keeps his course in pristine condition!

Sixteen years ago, the Clarizio family began redesigning Arrowhead’s original 18-hole layout with golf course designer Craig Shreiner. Shreiner has taken on the complete resign of 13 of the original 18 holes. The 126.9 acre private golf course is attractive and challenging with two of the holes situated adjacent to the Molalla River. This golf course should prove to be an excellent venue for the Senior PGA and Senior CPC.
