Rating 72.9

Arrowhead Golf Club is home to a 27-hole course that is considered one of the best municipal plays in the Chicago area. The holes are divided into the South, East, and West nines, which can be played in three different 18-hole combinations. Water hazards appear on 17 of the 27 holes and there are 77 bunkers strategically placed throughout. Each golf course provides a challenging but different round. Although the club opened in 1927, the South/East Course was renovated in 2011. The course retained its challenging character but it was made more playable for a range of skill levels. In addition to the water and bunkers, there are mature trees throughout the course. Arrowhead G.C. also boasts a comprehensive practice facility that includes a lighted driving range, putting green, chipping green, and bunkers.

Fall Golf at Arrowhead a delight

Course was in great condition and despite the fall foliage and fallen leaves, pretty easy time finding our balls. Greens were recently aerated but still rolled true. Always enjoy our time at Arrowhead

Aeration Made Greens Tough

Course was in pretty good shape but they aerated everything. Before booking, it would have been nice to be notified. Aeration didn't affect the fairways but greens were tough because of it. Ball was bouncing around and putts were missed because of it.

Need to water the course

Apparently, the course hasn’t been watered for weeks. The ground was so hard that I was afraid to injure my wrists. The layout is unmemorable. Way overpriced for what it is. Played the Preserve at Oak Meadows and Prairie Landing a few days ago, this is nowhere close to them.

Arrowhead South and East - Impeccable

Me and a great pal enjoyed a lovely round at Arrowhead yesterday. We got paired up with a very nice father and son and all of us had similar skills. Pace of play was great, fairways were like carpets and the greens were fast but true. Challenging and undulating but true. Can't wait until we can play again.

Better than expected

I know Wheaton is a great town and their golf course is no exception. Very well maintained course. Challenging and fun. Was a good experience overall. A little pricey for my taste but is worth it to experience at least once. I’d only come back if I needed to impress some out of town friends.

Horrible experience

Good course but it got a lot of problems.
1. It’s impossible to find balls unless u hit in the fairway
2. Lack of ranger, group in front plays extremely slow because they hit 4 ball per person, the group behind complains about how slow we play and how bad we are as golfer. If there’s a ranger it won’t happen

The round was cheap but it’s not worth it. Never going back to the course unless they hire a ranger.

Great course!

Love this golf course greens are fast and true when you play early. in the day, but the only problem playing later in the day the greens are totally different. The lack of golf etiquette of todays players are horrible especially when it comes to fixing their own divots and raking a sand trap when you find yourself in one! Think of all the players that are golfing behind you. Pitiful.
Hats off the the golf course superintendent, greenskeeper and all who have a hand in getting and keeping this golf course in pristine condition.
