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.

Great all around

Nice Starter let me go off solo ahead of my schedule tee time, since the practice area was closed for the season. All players on the course were friendly and offered to let me play through. A 2-some on the back 9, let me join them. Played 18-holes on a Saturday in 2.5 hours. Only shortcomings this time of year was there was no beverage cart and no practice range.

Nice Course

The course was in great shape overall, Greens were a little in consistent with some rolling out others being a bit sticky. Really liked the layout, a course that if you haven't played before it has some tricks. The on course yardage is adequate, 150 stakes would be an improvement. With no gps on the carts, using the GN app or another means of knowing where you are on holes would be a big help.
Only real negative was the lack of food offerings. Not sure if they had slimmed down with recent increase in COVID restrictions? Played through the lunch hour and my best option was a candy bar.

Nice Track, but needs a little TLC

I play 70+ rounds a year all over the country, but a lot in Chicago land area at over 20+ courses. I usually play Broken Arrow a couple of times a year, i used to consider it my home courses. Friendly layout but still challenging, especially if the wind is blowing.
Sand Traps were in horrible condition. Whatever “sand” they are using it does not stand up well to rain and does not drain it only compacts. Based on the rain this week traps were unplayable.

Greens were in good condition but on the slow side and that was frustrating.

Tee Boxes could use a little crab grass removed and replaced with some decent sod.

Pace of play was great for a Saturday 4.5 hours.

Course in Good shape

Greens were fast, and fairways played superb. Rough was neutral, but easy to get out with power shots.
