Rating 74.5

Broken Arrow Golf Club, located just southwest of Chicago's Loop, offers 27 holes of championship golf. There are three nines: East, North, and South that are played in three different 18-hole combinations. The South/East Course begins with a links-style nine. The front of the course is accented by the landmarks of its former use as a farm. The original farmhouse and silo can be seen from the first teebox. Throughout the front nine, golfers will be faced with 22 bunkers, seven ponds, and multi-tiered greens. The golf course doesn't get any easier on East nine, which is arguably the most difficult of the three. The back nine features a slew of sloped fairways, hidden water hazards, and strategically placed bunkers. Course management is essential throughout the entire golf course.

Decent course

Greens and tee boxes were in rough shape. The guy checking us in was a bit rude. Would not allow us to rent a 2nd cart.

Good Times

I enjoyed the day at Broken Arrow, weather was great, pace was good for the most part course was in good shape. The north course was closed but I enjoyed playing the other two nines. Thanks for an enjoyable day in November to play which was fabulous.

Fun Course

Golf Course was fun to play and challenging. Course was in very good shape except for bunkers which could use a little work (this time of year they get a pass)_.

Always a great day at Broken Arrow

Had a one hour frost delay - would have been nice to send an email when you make a reservation. However we got out and course was in great shape. A hair overpriced but most courses are in 2020 with the demand but challenging and fun course. Love the layout. Fairways were in great shape. Greens were perfect. Tee boxes a bit muddy from recent aeration but hands down one of my favorite courses to play in chicago south suburbs!

Poor customer service

I accidentally booked for the 1st October. Tried to cancel immediately, and went onto live chat. No one from Golf Now responded. Had to eat the reservation. Realize it was my fault, but absolutely no contact or response from Golf Now. Will not be using anymore based on principal alone

Starter / ranger?

No starter or ranger which caused confusion about where to go and what do about the slow play. A little common courtesy is all that’s needed.

Not Good Enough To Go Back

No GPS on Golf Carts
Range Balls were in awful condition, some of them were cut by the lawn mower and still made it into a range bucket.
No starter or ranger to monitor pace of play
Saw beverage cart once on the 3rd hole, that was it.
Bunkers literally had rocks in them and you had to either pick your ball clean or just take it out of the bunker because they’re not maintained at all (rock hard)
Some of the greens were pretty beat up
Not worth $52 for 18 with cart.

Course has great views.

The only thing that I would recommend is that the golf carts should have gps.
