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.

South/East at Arrowhead is a great time. Some of my favorite holes are on the South course and is a great front 9 for the round. Arrowhead also has option of playing 18 holes with West/East. Believe it switches each month. Highly recommend playing at Arrowhead!
Great Municipal Course
Arrowhead is a fun time! A bit challenging and for a municipal course, is in great shape! Staff are friendly and the starter's have gotten a lot better in regards to pace of play. So far this year it has not taken over 5 hours to play a round which is impressive considering in years past how long it has taken to play an 18 hole round. Highly recommend playing Arrowhead Golf. Have played both rotations of 18 with South/East & West/East. You'll enjoy your time at Arrowhead!
Sunny, day in the high 60s, low wind, very few leaves on the ground for late October. No one was in front of us and we finished a 2:07 start at 5:25. Course was in wonderful shape, greens were FAST. Wonderful alternative to sitting and watching the Bears lose again.
Greens, fairways and sand traps where in perfect shape on the east and west courses....South course was closed for maintenance.
This course is beautiful and in great conditions. The restaurant is serving up fantastic after golf fairs.
Great course but challenging fairways
Great weather, course in great shape, pace was decent.. Rangers on course help move groups along.
Great clubhouse, bar, outside area.
A WEDDING VENUE NOT A GOLF COURSE
Title says it all.
This track has the potential of being a very nice course. If management was interested in setting up the course for fair play. Rather than saving on maintenance and course set-up.There is no second cut on the fairways. Fairway and 3.5"-4" ruff. On the greens no collar. Green and 3.5"-4" ruff. This is not difficult. This is unfair. Not fair to miss a fairway by 3 yards or a green 1 yard and be in ruff.
As most all the reviews indicate. This is a very nice wedding venue. If you're looking to get married this is an acceptable choice. If you are looking to play golf. Move on.
It is evident that management prefers to make money on the weddings not on golf play.
I have played this course 3 times. There are some nice holes. Hoping that the set-up would change. Not. I play a lot of golf. At many different courses. This is one course that is not fun unfair and I will not play.
A beauty of Dupage County
A great, well maintained course with beauty and challenge everyone will love.
