In June of 2011, Coral Hospitality along with a group of qualified investors successfully closed on the acquisition of Arrowhead Golf Club in Naples, Florida. Arrowhead Golf Club has been recognized as the best public golf course in Southwest Florida for the past 10 years. The new ownership group recognized an opportunity to make Arrowhead even better by providing committed capital dollars for improvements, expanded membership programs, improved amenity offerings and service enhancements under the direction of Coral Hospitality.
Designed to further establish Arrowhead Golf Club as the premier public golf destination in Southwest Florida, Arrowhead has completed a preliminary $200,000 improvement program over the last four months along with restructuring of all club operations.
Highlighting the improvements at the Arrowhead Golf Club are clubhouse and course enhancements bringing members a new level of service and comfort. With the expansion and furniture additions to the patio, it can now comfortably accommodate up to 60 members -- ideal for leagues, group gatherings, events and enjoying the Naples weather. Also new are outdoor and indoor televisions, clubhouse doors, artwork, and renovated restrooms on course and in the clubhouse. The Pro Shop has been updated with a new design and merchandising, as well as the addition of a beverage area.
With a commitment to provide a stellar golf experience, Arrowhead decided to bring maintenance of the golf course under club control in December. These efforts are led by newly appointed superintendent, Auggie Lucio. This decision will allow the club to commit additional dollars to course condition improvement and first-class playing surfaces.
Under the lead of James Mason, the newly appointed General Manager, service training programs and standards were implemented and reinforced, to uphold Arrowhead's commitment to be the Best Public Course in Naples, as voted by Naples Daily News readers for more than ten years running. The club implemented a new restaurant concept "The Pub at Arrowhead" along with a new exciting menu and the addition of culinary professionals to ensure a top amenity for guests.
Through the recent renovations, Arrowhead aspires to grow the game of golf in Naples and Southwest Florida through Junior Programs, Get Ready Golf, seasonal leagues, group outings and lessons. Offering a new menu of memberships with a three-tier program - Platinum, Gold and Summer - Arrowhead strives to make golf accessible to all. The new ownership is committed to making Arrowhead the premier, best-conditioned public golf club in Southwest Florida.
