Haven't played this course since it's opening in 2003. I was impressed with it then for the conditioning of the course. Now i'm wondering why the parking lot isn't full. Best conditioned course i've played, in a long time. Some of, the bunkers might be a little firm, but i had no trouble getting out, even though they're all pretty deep. The tees and fairways are great, and the greens fast and smooth. There's plenty of room in the fairways, and enough elevation change, along with hills and valleys, to keep it interesting. I'll be back.

Course was in good, firm shape, tough on a windy day. Greens were quick and just a touch bumpy, enough that given how fast they were and how windy, not every putt rolled smooth.

But this is a good course, in good firm shape. A fun, challenging layout, too.

Other than the range being closed when I arrived (unable to fully warm up), my round of golf was great. The course is beautiful and it was challenging enough to make me take risks and shots I normally wouldn't. Once I got warm, it was the best course I've played in a while.

I'm new to the area. I've been playing all the most talked about courses. Everyone had been telling me to play this course. Well, I saw a great Hot Deals tee time available and jumped at it. I was not disappointed. The course was in really good shape. They had a WAC golf event there earlier in the day. The pin positions were in challenging spots and kind of fun honestly. I will surely be back to this course many more times.

Course was in excellent condition, greens were fast and fair. Was teamed up with a local, he was great and helped us choose our shots. This was our first of four rounds we played in 2 days, this was the perfect course to start our golf journey in Phoenix.

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.

One of my favorite in the East Valley. The course conditions were very good. Pace of play was also very good. We did wait on a few holes but we were a threesome following a foursome so to be expected. The greens were awesome. I will be back.

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.
