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.

Three nine hole courses. I golfed on the East and North courses. They have their challenges on some holes with narrow fairways and trees. The North course is unusual as each hole has two greens, with one longer than the other (blue flag - longer, red flag - shorter). The only thing I didn't like is that I use a Golf Buddy indicating distances to front, center and back of the green. By playing two greens you have no idea which green you are getting the distance for, so it was a problem guessing distance. The course was in fine condition and it was packed so it took 4 1/2 hours on a Monday.

I will not be playing this golf course ever again. Our front nine took two plus hours and when we made the turn two elderly gentlemen who were walking cut in front of us even though our foursome had the right of way. I mentioned this to the mooks in the clubhouse who allowed this to happen and they just shrugged and said nothing. In addition GPS does not work accurately on the North course due to the fact that there are two flags set up on every green.

Played the East and North courses. East course has plenty of hazards and all hills and ridges funnel right to the hazards so you have to be accurate with all shots. Very unforgiving. North course has less issues with hazards, but has a tough layout with 2 pins on each green. Overall course was in great condition.
