Played Friday, 4/28 teeing off at 8 am on a beautiful day. We used a voucher Gary had from Costco and it was $40 per player with cart which is an ABSOLUTE STEAL.
Arrowwood has to be one of my favorite courses around and I kept mentioning I had no idea why it had been so long since I played there. The course provides and incredible variety of holes and you end up really having to hit every club in the bag. I was also reminded that the greens provide some interesting breaks as I couldn't get a read on them all day, but I do like that feature as it provides a lot of play to get comfortable out there.
As for the course conditions, Arrowwood might be in the best shape that I can remember. The fairways are absolutely perfect in my opinion. Cut short and tight to give you some roll out there but enough cushion under the turf to be able to really get after it. I had nothing but perfect lies all day long. The rough here isn't too penalizing, and I'm glad it's there to slow down some drives headed for the native areas, but I found that chipping/pitching out of it around the greens really added some difficulty as getting any kind of spin is pretty tricky.
The greens here might not be visually perfect, but they performed great. I'd say they were probably 10.5-ish on the stimp and really smooth. They did hold shots hit well but also provided a bit of run-out which I like because there are a few holes where you can play off slopes to get at pins. Really fun.
The crew at Arrowwood always provides great service. I've never had an issue with pace of play out there as we saw a Marshall several times and I think they do a pretty good job tracking POP and keeping on people. The pro shop crew is always efficient and the starter out front keeps things running really smoothly.
I would highly recommend Arrowwood right now and I will be back to play there very, very soon.» Close
