Kim PrazakAssistant to Director of Special Facilities
I feel honored to work with the level of clientele and staff you’ll find at Arrowhead Golf Club. In my position as Assistant to Director of Special Facilities, I work closely with team members who strive to offer only the best golf, restaurant and banquet experiences to our guests. My relationships within the community and my Arrowhead family make me feel truly blessed.
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.
