In recent years the Wheaton Park District has made several upgrades to the Arrowhead Golf Course.

It started with a brand new clubhouse and then came the renovation of all 27 holes by Greg Martin.

Finally came improvements in the practice area and the driving range.

Now Arrowhead has taken a step to get better, they have added Pelican Golf in the basement of the clubhouse and Pelican when weather permits, can move outside to the tee line.

There are several moving parts to Pelican Golf and golfers should enjoy them all.

The two professionals who golfers should recognize have been in the golf business around town for years.

Both Mike Mandakas and Kent Sirois have dealt with golfers for years, and Mandakas still coaches college golf.

Pelican Golf is a great addition to the Arrowhead Golf Club. It helps golfers get fitted for the right clubs, from driver to putter. Club repair and lessons are also available, it is the final piece that Arrowhead needed to become a complete facility.
