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.

This is my first hole-in-house one of my life. It's amazing!!!

I hit a ball to right on the red flag,

Because wind is browned right to left. The ball( titleist nxt) is fried more high to flag. So I thought it's free good going.

I did!!! Hole-in- one

Played a 730 tee time. We started about 5-10 minutes late, but the pace of play was good as our foursome had 3 somes in front of us. Rich at the first tee was great. Conditions of the course were very good for this late in the year and for not having rain in the last few weeks.

I would play again.

Played the last 7 holes with aerified tee boxes that weren't cleared off with zero warning that this would be the case. Usually golf now has a warning that let's customers know that this has either happened or will be happening when they get to the course.

Commented on 09/20/2017

I actually did not miss any warning that this was going to be happening. GolfNow did not have a warning for this course as it did for others and that is why I selected to play here. When I called the pro shop from the course I was told "Oh really? They are not supposed to be doing that today"

The east nine is the best of the three. You can't

miss fairways to the left on either nine; I hit what I thought were good drives on several holes only to find my ball in a lateral hazard. Plenty of challenge here. Greens are excellent with the usual dents divots and scrapes which aren't repaired. I would recommend.

Had a group of four guys for our early Sunday game. The group ahead of us was incredibly slow right from the start. No rangers to speed it up. Pretty frustrating when you start early figuring everyone out there is moving along. It was painful. Course is in great shape with three nines to play. Wondering if they close a nine each weekday to give it a break...Anyway that group ahead of us sucked but still fun.
