(Review updated Aug 2023) This is one of the hidden gems Golf Lemonade likes to share with the world. Although not as well known as its famous neighbor Sand Valley, these facilities are a lot of course for not much money.
The Pines Course (8.7 score) is very much a parkland/woodsy course with lots of pine trees and a moderate amount of water, sand, and prairie grass. Although there are numerous trees that will punish poor tee shots, this course is still a little more forgiving then some tree filled clubs we have played. Overall it's a well balanced fun course.
The Lakes Course (8.6 score) is a similar style but little bit of a tale of two nines. The front nine is slightly rougher and narrower with more dynamic sand traps while the back nine is probably the nicest of all the nines at Arrowhead with a little more room and greatly varied hole styles. Greens, fairways, tee boxes, and traps were in great shape overall at both courses. Moderate range facilities. Great large clubhouse with full restaurant and bar. Great service!
Greens, fairways, and tee boxes were in excellent shape. Sand trap conditions were a little mixed but generally good.
Greens had nice medium level of undulation and speeds that were a good match. A couple holes felt similar but otherwise interesting fun designs with decent level of risk/reward. Very few forced carries or fully blind shots.
As noted in the highlights, lots of pine and other trees along with moderate water, traps, and prairie type grass to make things visually interesting. Occasional small levels of elevation.
