I read a review complaining about the bunkers. I found them to be in good shape, fluffy sand, slightly damp. My only complaint would be the incessant aircraft noise. There's nothing that can be done about it but play through the distraction.

I will play some holes differently next time out. Some blind shots left me in bad spots. Hope I can make it back before I forget!

There are no pictures of the course either in the cart or on the score card. As a first time player I had no idea if it was a 'dog leg' to the left or right.

There were other people on the course but because of the design I never felt that it was a problem. At some courses you worry that you may be hit by players on other fairways.

Good course but poor admin/play management. It took us nearly 5 hours to complete the round, waited on every shot and on every hole. It was evident that one group was causing havoc for the rest of the field. We reported this to Longbow management during our play, to no avail. I would recommend you do NOT play this course until Longbow guarantee improved pace of play management. On completion of play I complained to the pro shop staff, it was like talking to a brick wall, completely none responsive and could care less.

Basically course was in good shape except for the bunkers which could very easily be the worst I have seen in this valley for an upper end course. If Longbow expects to get the higher rate for green fees then they should do something about this.

Great course! Fantastic layout and the course condition were top notch! Pace of play was a tad slow but nothing to complain about for a Saturday morning. My only issue with my experience has to with the atmosphere. Everybody was just so uptight and serious... Lighten up and have some fun! Golfing is always better than NOT golfing!

If you like a great layout quick greens and a good test of your golfing skills

this is a place to play. Fair tees for every level and a nice atmosphere for a great day of golf.

Course was beautiful and very well manicured. Unfortunately, the extremely slow pace of play ruined what should have been a great afternoon of golf. We were late to tee off, had to wait on every hole and couldn't finish the round before dark after 5 1/2 hours. No ranger anywhere on the course all afternoon.

After being told to go to first tee 15 minutes after tee time. It then took us 5 and one half hours to play. 3 groups on every tee box. No exaggeration.

Nice course. In good shape. If you are fascinated by small prop and jet airplanes you will love sinice they are constantly overhead. The bunkers on this course are plentiful, large, deep and the sand is really packed and hard. Many are placed in front of the green so u must fly over on your approach shot. This would be my only criticism, for a public course there are way too many bunkers and they are way too hard.

Give the golf course a rating of 3.5 out of 5 but the staff, facilities, pace of play, and general friendliness and value is 1.5 out of 5. Green fees are not cheap and they still charge you for range balls......come on? No direction on carts and practice facilities. The carts are set up but you don't get a key until they allow you to travel to the first tee like they don't trust you. No beverage cart or even a Marshall to help move play along. Course conditions were good but all the other little things outweigh the course. Checkin process in pro shop and bag drop off was also very cold and non inviting. Not a great way to start the round. Anyway won't be playing this course again.

Absolutely loved this course and can't wait to play it again- our only complaint was yardage markers were far and few between and were not easy to see- if I had remembered my GPS this would not have been an issue. BEAUTIFUL COURSE.
