I played the first six holes in an hour and then played the next 9 holes in 2 1/2 hours before quitting. There was a dreadfully slow threesome of men playing and at least four groups behind them including mine decided to just give up and head to the clubhouse as there was no way to reasonably finish the round.

A Ranger to maintain pace of play would have been helpful. Also with the number of long grass clippings laying around, balls in the rough and even sometimes on the fairways were hard to find. It is a moce layout but the maintenance of the course and controls on slow play need to be improved

I've been going to Arrowhead for countless years now. The conditions are never good, in fact if you are looking for even fair conditions, don't come here. Only come to Arrowhead if you are looking for a challenge with the layout. It's an old style course that has me coming back every time.

Always enjoy playing Arrowhead, an interesting layout with back to back par 5's to start your round. Course was in good condition overall for this time of year. The only negative is the significant amount of leaves on the ground everywhere causing major challenges finding your ball and making the round play a bit longer. Just bring plenty of balls and plan to drop and play on or you'll spend a lot of time looking for your ball even in fairways. Still a good time especially for the time of year!

Arrowhead is often missed by people; it’s hidden away off the main highway (Rt 422), and it’s not very well-publicized.

I’ve been playing it for over twenty years, and nothing about it has changed. It appears that the original course was laid out almost 100 years ago, but then, about fifty years ago, nine new holes were added to that portion of the course which is across the street from the clubhouse, making it a 27- hole facility. There is a small lake to hit over on hole 8 which makes it one of the best holes. The age of the course shows itself in some short and somewhat awkward holes. If you can play the original holes behind the clubhouse, you’ll get an experience of what early golf in America was like!

There are many hills, but they tend to run perpendicular to the direction of play, so you’ll have more up- and down-hill lies than side-hill. The greens are slow but they run true, and they don’t have a lot of slope.

The pro shop bears mention because they make great quick lunches, cheeseburgers, etc., at very reasonable prices.

All in all, a very enjoyable and low-key experience!

Good bang for your buck. It's a quiet, peaceful course with no houses or condos to hit. Conditions are typical of public courses this time of year. Fun, some challenging holes, some hills, some tree lined fairways...good place to just play golf and enjoy the outdoors.

Read the reviews and boy were we surprised. Course is in fair condition, but it had rained hard, plus it is Autumn. Some very trying shots from all areas. Rough was little high, but most courses are down to a skeleton crew this time of year.

I like this course. I played here in my teens (in the last millennium). Things haven’t changed much. Like many older public courses the bunkers aren’t very well kept, some are now just grass. That said you don’t lose many balls. The greens are receptive and I break 100 and sometimes even 90.

This course has seen much better days. The fairways are patchy, sand traps are borderline unplayable, greens are extremely slow, carts are fast and finding a ball in the rough is difficult. It not an expensive place to play and the staff is very nice. If you're looking for a cheap round of golf and can tolerate fair (at best) conditions -- then Arrowhead is for you. For me, there are far too many better options in the area.
