West/East at Arrowhead Golf Club
Arrowhead Golf Club in Wheaton offers 27 holes of championship golf. The entire course features water on 17 holes and 77 strategically placed bunkers. The course is divided into three nine-hole courses that can be played in different 18-hole combinations. The club opened in 1927 but two of the golf courses, South and East, were renovated in 2011, followed by the West nine a year after. The golf courses are all equally challenging but they each have a unique character. The West/East Course starts with the shortest nine but it also has one of the most intimidating water holes, the par-3 seventh, which has a green that is almost entirely surrounded by water. With such a challenging variety of courses, it is not hard to imagine why Arrowhead G.C. is considered one of the best municipal golf courses in the Chicago area.

Don’t think I’ll be back
Overall not a good experience. The staff was very friendly and acknowledged it was playing slow but did nothing about it. For the price to play here the greens are horrible. First time playing this course and also my last. Too many better choices out there.
Lots of fun
Played the East 9 with my son on his graduation weekend. The course was very wet because of all the rain received recently, and the grass hasn’t really started to grow yet due to very cool temps, but otherwise the course was in really nice shape. It was a longish nine due to cart path only… 2 hrs 40 mins. But we didn’t seem to be waiting much at all. Last time I played Arrowhead was 20 yrs ago… it’s completely changed and a really nice public golf club now!
Great layout, greens need a little work
Great course and fun layout. Greens need a little love but it’s been pretty cold so all in all nice course to play. I’ll definitely be back.
Played the south 9. Love how the course is secluded from houses and roads. Great decently challenging layout. Greens need a little work but it’s been pretty cold so not a big deal. Course drained well as it rained the night before. Will definitely play again and shoot 18 this time.
Late fall golf.
Aeration was a few weeks ago so should have been ok. But heavy layer of sand topping on most greens killed putting. SHOULD HAVE BEEN A REDUCED RATE.
That said, this is a wonderful course to play. A lot of interesting slopes and uphill and downhill holes with some greens perched up on the hill. . Some dog-legs makes it interesting. greens are challenging but accessible.
Play this course and you will enjoy your time spent! I’ll be going back!
Staff always friendly. Other golfers have always seemed nice and courteous. Beautiful course .
One of the best course in area with extremely well knowledge and friendly staff. Great health up keep as well
Arrowhead is always great. I’ve played all three 9 hole courses and they’re always in fantastic shape. Pace of play is never an issue. The staff is always friendly, Jim the starter is great! Would highly recommend to anyone!
Great golf course. Great layout. Challenging but very fair. Course is in terrific condition. Facilities are very nice and outdoor bar seating overlooking course is cool.
Great Course but Gimmicky Pins
The course was in great shape, but the pins were on top of crowns almost all the time. If you were above the hole, putted die pace and missed, the ball might roll 12 ft.
