Improvements in store for Arrowhead Golf Course

CAMP POINT, Ill. (WGEM) – Several improvements are underway for Arrowhead Golf Course.

In the past two months, two bridges that had been in place since the course opened more than 40 years ago were replaced at no cost.

Arrowhead general manager Kirk Gauldin said County Contractors completed the bridges in December.

Before the course opens for the winter, Gauldin hopes to have much improved landscaping on every hole, updated bathrooms, new paint and potentially an expanded clubhouse.

He said all past and future improvements are only made possible by local businesses and community members.

“Some of the things that were given we could never pay back and it’s just amazing how they have intensified, the community has intensified 40 years ago and we hope they will escalate again and maybe we’ll last another 40 years here,” Gauldin said.

He also said he plans to convert part of the clubhouse into a three-season room, which is an enclosed space surrounded by glass with air conditioning.

“We had a huge number of families stepping up and contributing,” Gauldin added.

Eventually, he would like to replace the sign that is on the side of the road when you enter the parking lot of the golf course.

He also started an Adopt-A-Hole program, where community members can choose to keep the landscaping of a selected hole on the course.

To donate for the upgrades, call the course at 217-593-6619.
