Type Public
Located just 40 miles southwest of Chicago's Loop, Broken Arrow Golf Club is one of the most popular golfing facilities in the area. The club offers 27 holes of championship golf, divided into three unique nines that offer different challenges and scenery. The golf courses: East, North, and South, are played in three different 18-hole combinations. The North/South is the most scenic of the courses. The North is especially beautiful, but it also has another distinction. It is the only course in the Midwest with a dual-green concept. The design allows golfers to control the difficulty of the course by offering the option to play to either of the two flags on each hole. The club's former use as a farm is evident on the South nine where the original farmhouse and silo can be seen from the first tee box.

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.
