West/East at Arrowhead Golf Club
Arrowhead Golf Club in Wheaton offers 27 holes of championship golf. The entire course features water on 17 holes and 77 strategically placed bunkers. The course is divided into three nine-hole courses that can be played in different 18-hole combinations. The club opened in 1927 but two of the golf courses, South and East, were renovated in 2011, followed by the West nine a year after. The golf courses are all equally challenging but they each have a unique character. The West/East Course starts with the shortest nine but it also has one of the most intimidating water holes, the par-3 seventh, which has a green that is almost entirely surrounded by water. With such a challenging variety of courses, it is not hard to imagine why Arrowhead G.C. is considered one of the best municipal golf courses in the Chicago area.

Golf Advisor: Top Courses in Illinois
The staff was very friendly and very accommodating. I think they need rangers on the course and if they had them, they weren't doing their job. Even though we were a twosome, the course was very backed up. At one point, there were four groups on the sixth hole. I am an experienced golfer and this was uncalled for even for a twosome.
Wonderful Course For Visiting Chicago Metro Area
One week ago there was snow on the ground so the greens are super slick due to not enough sun exposure for grass to grow. The fairways are filling in nicely and the layout is challenging but fun to play. I was a single and Andrew in the pro shop worked me in and paired me with a very nice couple from Chicago. Clean facilities, friendly staff and beautifully maintained course. One huge bonus; the course is surrounded by a nature preserve so there are no houses; simply an amazing natural outdoor experience. When in the area I will for sure play again.
Was a great day for a walk
Considering the course was covered in snow the day before the course was perfect.
Fairways pretty soggy but playable.
Greens still bumpy from aeration.
Course was not very busy pace of play was perfect.
The staff is always friendly
The food and bar area is always excellent
good course---excellent staff
We enjoyed playing the course---for this time of the season, the course was in excellent condition.
the staff was outstanding---from checking in to the starter (jim) we were made to feel very welcome. Afterwards, we had lunch and drinks at the bar. Ivona, the bartender was informative, friendly and professional. Thanks for a great time
Great Early Spring Round
Very friendly and accommodating staff. For an early spring round, the course was in great shape. I would definitely come back to Arrowhead. Great clubhouse. Very enjoyable day.
Brilliant course. Well kept and affordable when discounted. I just wish they had a ball and club cleaner on the back of their carts or near the clubhouse.
Can’t believe it took me this long to play here
What can I say, just love this course. First thing you notice from looking out is how well manicured it is. Hole after hole is a a treat. Great, this along with Preserve at Oak Meadows are two I will definitely add to my regular rotation of courses.
Was pleased with the quality of the course. Greens were quick but needed players to repair ball marks. Good layout, plenty challenging. Only played 9 on the West course..
Public course with a country club feel
I am a little conflicted reviewing this course.. Mainly because I’m afraid of making it more popular than it already is. I try from May through October to play a different course every week and how this flew under my radar for this long is inexplicable. This is without question my Most enjoyable experience this golf season. I highly recommend it and if you have the opportunity by all means play this course.
Feels like a private club
Gorgeous, very well maintained 27 hole course. My favorite place to play 18 and then enjoy the restaurant at the clubhouse.
Arrowhead West Course
Great Golf Course. Challenging holes. Made you think about nearly every shot. Great conditions. Love playing here!!
Stay for beer & burger
Fun, mostly challenging layout. Far above average course conditions. Great clubhouse, food, beverages etc. great value with the hot deal we had. A little pricy at full price.
