Meet Our Staff
Andy BendyDirector of Special Facilities
As the Director of Special Facilities, I am proud to lead and manage all aspects of Arrowhead because our team is committed to insuring that every customer is treated as family. From taking care of the bride and groom on their special day, to making sure that every meal is prepared and served to perfection, to maintaining the pristine conditions of the golf course, I am truly proud to be a part of this team.
Bruce StollerPGA, Director of Golf
The lifelong friendships with employees and guests have been the best parts of working at Arrowhead. Helping with the changes made to the facility over the last 30-plus years has only added to it. Two major course renovations, expansion of the irrigation system, the addition and update of the driving range, and building the new clubhouse have all been highlights. I can’t wait to see what the future holds.
