I really like the course, some interesting holes with a fair layout and chances to score. Tee boxes were a bit beat up, but overall the course was in good shape. Pace of play was excellent and the staff was very friendly and accommodating.

Really fantastic course. I played the South/East combo. There weren't a ton of people on the course so I flew through my round. I think both of these 9 hole tracks are really great. Par 4's are not that challenging, fairways have some nice rolling features to them. The par 5's are well designed with water in the right places to make you think about your next shot and whether going for the green in two is worth it. All the grass is well kept, watered, and mowed. Greens were practically immaculate. What I especially loved about these designs is that, while there are houses adjacent to the fairways, the direction of play always places them on the left. Wonderful, considering most golfers are right-handed slicers (if you hook or slice left-handed, be nice to the neighbors...though the houses aren't that close to the fairway, and the holes themselves are designed to hit away from them). The par-3's are great, either hitting with water as a danger or to a multitiered green. Carts are electric, all have divot sand and rain covers. No GPS, but the clubhouse offers yardage books for 5 bucks. There are courses in the area where you'll pay a lot more and get two-decade-old carts and jack from the clubhouse besides an attitude. Broken Arrow gave the feeling that golf is something everyone enjoys and hope the people who play there leave with an enjoyable experience. I certainly did.

My first time playing Broken Arrow. Considering all of the rain we've had lately, the course was dry and was in great shape. I only found a couple of wet spots in the rough. Greens and fairways were well maintained. The course itself is challenging but not overwhelming. My only complaint would be the pace of play. Most times there were 3 groups on each of the par 4s we played. Our round took 4-1/2 hours to play. Overall, a great course for the price I paid.

I would definitely play again.

I got to get out in the afternoon this Saturday after the crazy amount of rain we have gotten the past week. The course was over all in pretty good shape only had a couple lies that where to set to play in. We were able to get out for about 35 bucks. That is a steal on this course as it's normally pushing 60 bucks. I will say this course is exteeamly affected by wind conditions and changes the difficulty dramatically.

Course was in good condition considering the time of year. The sand traps were mostly playable but some were very hard from the rain. Leaves caused some problems finding a ball hit into the ruff but overall good conditions on the course.

Excellent 27-hole facility in the former cornfields of Lockport, comparable in course quality to Prairie Bluff (which is nearby) and Sanctuary. This course wends its way through a residential development like the Links and Carillon, but is far superior. Got a great deal on Golfnow.

The staff goes out of their way to make the experience at Broken Arrow an excellent one. On Labor Day my GolfNow reservation for this course was wrong. The course honored the reservation and the price despite it being a holiday and not the correct reservation. One of the course managers was playing with a foursome and allowed my wife and I to play through. While doing so he introduced himself and asked us about our experience. I have experienced that level of service ever time I play at Broken Arrow.
