Rating 72.6

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.

Solid course- challenges and good condition.

We’ve played here some what sporadically but also enjoyed the experience. We had no problem with pace today and the course was in good condition considering it’s late in the summer.

Good Course, Terribel Pace of Play

The course was good. I’ve been there before and enjoyed it. This time, mid day on a Sunday was one of the worst golf experiences I’ve ever had. We would literally hit a shot, and have to wait over 10 mins before we hit another. Thought about leaving several times, but at $80/round, didn’t want to just leave. Not sure iI’d ever play there on a weekend again

Punched greens

Love the course but I would have liked to been told beforehand, so I can decide if I want to play with the aerated greens.
