Described by Peoria Pines? golf pros as a ?power executive? course, Peoria Pines? 18-hole course presents a scaled-down, 4,412-yard, par 63 layout. The truncated course challenges golfers? iron play with 11 par 3s and five par 4s, while two lengthy par 5s?which measure 510 and 527 yards?give players an excuse to send golf balls flying with their driver or covert water-balloon launchers. The player-friendly course rests alongside a practice facility with a grass-tee driving range and areas for chipping, putting, and bunker shots.
Views of the course abound from The Palm Room, where executive chef Matt D?Arnese crafts a menu of gourmet pasta, chicken, beef, and fish. The restaurant provides a postround respite for golfers to unwind with a drink from the full-service bar or a chance to assess white tablecloths? utility as a putting surface.

Designed by golf great Arnold Palmer, The Legend at Arrowhead's 18-hole, par-72 course connects across 7,005 yards of blended bermuda and rye grasses. As golfers move across the short-grass corridors, mature palm trees and deep bunkers loom on the periphery along with six ponds that will test players' accuracy and ability to keep thirsty sand wedges from straying to the water's edge. Before taking to the first tee, golfers can warm up at the club's driving range, which gives them a feel for the turf they will encounter on the course with all-grass hitting areas. Stationed beside the course, the Legend Lakeside Grill remains open until dusk, offering a convenient place for golfers to unwind after a round or see how quickly they can flip through every single channel on the restaurant's three televisions.
