One slow group

Played at early Sat in Oct on a cold morning. Maybe 4 or 5th group out. Front 9 took 2.5 hours and we were a 2 sum behind a 3 sum behind a 4 sum. We waited on every shot. 3 sum behind us called pro shop to ask to get the 4 sum moving but no help. We finally were able to play through both groups on 11 & 12 and finished in 4 hours. No reason for 5 hour rounds. As for course, Sand Traps were a mess. Many full of water or eroded. The rest was in good shape.

Make a day out of this course

They've got it all! Very friendly staff in the pro shop, cart staff as well. INCREDIBLE cheeseburger in the restaurant, really great rates to play and they have nice carts. It's cool they have 3 nines to play so you can play this course multiple times and get a different experience each time. Would definitely recommend this course and plan to play 27 holes! We will be back again!

Course is in very good shape, except.....

Course is in best shape in years, could use ranger to push along slower groups. 4:45 round too long with last group of morning regulars 3 some ahead holding up our foursome. The traps need better drainage and fresh sand. there was standing water in quite a few, and it hasn't rained in a few days. There is NO drinking water on the course, so bring a bottle if you are going to play here. I recommend the course. nice people, fast well kept greens, and good value

Golf Gem in Lockport

I have been playing this course for years and it still remains challenging as ever. The layout of the South and East course is very challenging with the east being slightly harder.

i was disappointed with the condition of the sand traps on the East course. After almost a week of no rain, several traps still remained water logged and all the traps appeared to not have been raked in weeks.

I am not a fan of the type of “sand” they are using these days, as i feel it could double as dirt based on the consistency. Sadly this seems to be an ongoing issue with sand traps in the chicago land area, not just Broken Arrow.

Lastly, i miss the opportunity to work in the North course to the mix. I like the slightly more wooded hole layouts. I understand that you can play the North in the morning upon request. Please bring back the option to book various combinations of the 3 nines throughout the entire day.

While my review is a bit critical i will return to play this course again so long as things don’t worsen.

Fun track.

Broken Arrow offers a challenging, but fun set of courses (3 nine hole courses). As you mix and match the North, South, and East courses, it’s a nice mix of 3’s, 4’s, and 5’s with hazards that enhance the experience without being overly difficult. I play here often. Definitely recommended.

Best shape in several years

Went South to North. Fairway and rough at proper lengths tee boxes need a little work and stay out of the inconsistent sand traps..pure crapshoot as to what conditions you'll face. Greens were in decent shape holding and watered proper amount but lots of ball marks not repaired or improperly repaired. Pace of play was immediately an issue and we waited on every shot on the South front nine. Instead of playing the East nine (the most difficult of the nines with lots of water) we went over to the North nine and enjoyed a 1.5 hours back instead of the turtle 2.5hrs front. Years past the North nine sported double flags featuring double sized greens (a tough flag and an easy flag)....however this season mgmt has only cut one flag on these massive greensites. The North nine is the most picturesque and my favorite of the 3 nines...you need to pay strict attention to your yardages - laser/garmin a must as there's no gps on the carts. Decent clubhouse (exterior is butt ugly) and the practice range was off grass - a nice change as for several years I've always had to warm up on mats. If I recall correctly they do have a locker room and showers in the basement. All in all a nice operation. Solid 3.5 to 3.75 stars....and I'll reiterate best shape this course has been in a least 5 years and maybe more as I've played it since it opened in 96.

Enjoyable Round

Broken Arrow is a solid course, challenging with uneven lies if you roam from the fairway, but you can score well when hitting straight.
The greens were well kept, and rolled true. Again, the key is ball placement because the greens have undulations.
There are quite a few blind shots and tight approach shots that require prior knowledge and solid ball striking.
My friend and I thoroughly enjoyed our round of golf today.

Short staffed

Course was in good shape but the pace of play was a little slow even for holiday standards. No ranger on course, snack shop had no one available and there was no cart girl until the round was almost over.
