ARROWHEAD GOLF COURSE
By Ken Liebeskind
For some great golf in Berks County, PA, we suggest you play the Arrowhead Golf Course in Douglassville, which is located on land once owned by the Lenape Indians, a few miles from Daniel Boone's homestead. The Arrowhead Golf Course was designed in 1954, with arrowheads found on almost every hole, which gives the course its name and you may still be able to find arrowheads near the creek beds on the course.
The Arrowhead Golf Course is set in the rolling hills of rural Berks County, featuring tree lined fairways, including 2,500 Norwegian Pines. The Arrowhead Golf Course fairways are mixtures of Kentucky Blue and Perennial Rye, with bent grass greens. The par 71, 6,002 yard course features four par 5s and five par 3s, including a long 245 yard hole.Several beautiful ponds and streams come into play.

The Arrowhead Golf Course terrain varies from flat to hilly and its greens are fast. Water hazards come into play on five holes. The signature hole is number 8, a 371 yard par 4, requiring an approach shot over water. Another signature holes is the 16th, a 371 yard par 4 which demands carrying the ball over a valley and steep side hill to a severely elevated green. Putting difficulty comes into play with a green that slopes three feet 10 inches from the right rear to left front of the green.
With the tricky greens at Arrowhead Golf Course, having a putter that can be customized to the course conditions is a big help. The Closer Weighted putter from www.scientificgolfclubs.com has three movable weights and nine placement holes that allow you to choose the exact balance for your stroke and the perfect weighting for fast and slow greens. You can set the putter to avoid pulls by moving the weights toward the toe and avoid pushes by moving them toward the heel. If you're playing a fast green at the Arrowhead Golf Course, you can remove one, two or all three weights to lighten the putter, or leave them in for slow or normal greens.
The Closer Weighted putter also has a computer-controlled milled face for smooth, accurate putts and red and white sighting lines to help you hit every putt with straight-to-the-pin accuracy.
