Arrowhead GC

Situated on 135 verdant acres in the heart of the Willamette Valley, Arrowhead Golf Club remains the hidden jewel of Clackamas County. Guarded by old-growth forest, the 18-hole championship golf course meanders across lush meadows and rolling hills, crossing paths with the pristine Molalla River and Wrights Creek before beginning its final approach back to the clubhouse. Despite its picturesque setting, the course is designed to challenge players of all abilities. Its demanding layout and manicured surfaces result in a dynamic playing experience.

A Senior Tradition

The Senior PGA Professional Championship was established in 1952. Back then, the championship was held at the Yakima Elks’ G&CC with only 21 professionals battling it out for the mere sum of $920 dollars. The famous Bob Duden won the championship six times during the 70’s and seven times overall. Today, this is a popular event for Section seniors.

Last year, PGA Professional Steve Stull won the PNW Senior PGA Professional Championship in a SIX hole playoff against Tom Sovay of The GC at Redmond Ridge.
