Rating 74.5

Broken Arrow Golf Club, located just southwest of Chicago's Loop, offers 27 holes of championship golf. There are three nines: East, North, and South that are played in three different 18-hole combinations. The South/East Course begins with a links-style nine. The front of the course is accented by the landmarks of its former use as a farm. The original farmhouse and silo can be seen from the first teebox. Throughout the front nine, golfers will be faced with 22 bunkers, seven ponds, and multi-tiered greens. The golf course doesn't get any easier on East nine, which is arguably the most difficult of the three. The back nine features a slew of sloped fairways, hidden water hazards, and strategically placed bunkers. Course management is essential throughout the entire golf course.

Nice find

Well maintained, very forgiving right off the tee…left? Houses! Sorry bout that!

Will recommend to friends, easy to get to for me from the South Loop (all highway). Only saw the cart gal once though.

Needs a Little TLC

Teed off before 6:30 AM and didn’t see a single groundskeeper the whole round. Maybe they cut the night before because the greens were in good shape but needed cleaning (goose poop, leaves, etc). Apparently rained there in the earlier AM but could not have rained much for the traps to be as poor as they are. Need truckloads of sand to fill the traps, all the traps I was in (several to be conservative) were wet packed down sand, no fluff anywhere and several had ditches from running water. Cart path on the north course could use some pothole repair. Still consider it to be a nice course despite these comments.

Questions about upkeep?

The course was in decent shape for spring golf, however they need to some major work on their sand traps, some tee boxes need work , and the greens have a lot of divot marks that need to be repair.

Not what it could be!!

I have been playing broken arrow since it opened. It’s a wonderful layout and convenient to play. It seems the last few years they have done little to improve the conditions of the course. The bunkers are unplayable. Just wonder why they don’t put a little money into making the golf experience more enjoyable?
No ball washers, no garbage cans, and the clubhouse

Cart path only

There was rain and the range was closed and then the cart path was pretty rough in some places.

Broken Arrow

Broken Arrow is an excellent course for the money. While somewhat difficult, it is not overly so.

In the name of covid

Not thrilled with the fact that there was no water on the course, no cart with drinks, and low selection at the turn. When asked why? Covid precautions....okay I suppose that’s fine, then how about a little discount, no none of that. Cant be too safe....sure, is it not safe to keep up with the grounds, greens as well. Golf right now is a bit like the Cubs in the 80’s and 90’s. Selling out, so no need to do a good job, all good....Whatever, it’s fine, first time last time.

Very Good Track, fairly maintained, staff a bit aloof

I played the south -to-East. For all the moisture we had lately, this course is in great shape. Because of the weather greens are a bit sift and not too many people are fixing ball marks. Management should see that these ball marks are promptly fixed, otherwise the greens could be severely damaged.
