So I booked a tee time at this course not realizing that I am playing the day before they were closing for over-seeding. Suffice it to say, the course was pretty brown and the greens were like glass. Also the constant planes flying overhead was slightly annoying (small airport close by).

However, with that said, I loved the layout of the course and had a lot of fun on the Longbow board. I did love the course layout and the friendliness of the staff. Despite the planes constantly flying overhead, I will definitely come back to this course when everything is nice and plush!

The course was in very poor condition due to preparation for overseeding. Fairways were scalped, basically no grass. The course should not have been open in this condition.

Had the pleasure of playing Longbow with a group of 24 people that were in town for a wedding. The course was in great shape and a great fit for the wide range of golfers we had in our group, players ranging from 2 to 25 handicaps. I had the pleasure of planning the golf outing, it was made much easier working with Jeff Anti, the courses director of sales and marketing. Jeff was extremely easy to work with and ensured we had a great time. I got glowing reviews from everyone I talked to in the group and I would recommend this course to anyone who is going to be in the area to golf. Any large groups will also find working with Jeff and his staff very enjoyable.

I have played this course before and like it. The greens are firm so you have to plan the ball to run up. I got a great price. when I got there they let me take a golf board instead of a cart for the same price, (summer special). Great time as I have done the golf board several times and love it.

The course was in as good a shape as I have seen at this time of the year! Lush fairways, nicely mowed & rolled greens (around 8-9)!

Nice beverage cart service! Even coolers with iced bottled waters every 6 holes! Don't see that every day!

The course has always played fair with a fairly high degree of difficulty. But if you hit fairways, you'll score well!

We're going back soon!

I have been in Phoenix 30 years and played most courses but had never played here before. Staff was really friendly and course, for summer conditions, was in better shape than most of the pricier Scottsdale courses I have played this summer. Bunkers actually had decent sand in them and greens were good too. Course layout is nice, tee box selection can make this a challenge for low handicappers (back tees are over 7,000 yards) or if you move forward, very playable for middle to mid high handicappers.

Longbow is a great course with a wonderful layout. When I played, the greens were rolling very fast, but were hard and not receptive.Also, hole #10 fairway was under repair since an airplane crashed into it, but it just made the hole a little more difficult. They don't seem to lower their prices as much as similar quality courses do in the summer or else I would play here more. If the greens were more receptive there would be a lot of scoring opportunities.

I've played this course several times and continue to come back due to the layout and course design. However, I played on July 4th and was very disappointed. I know it's summer and its hard to keep a course in good condition but it was very burnt out and needed work. In addition, the sand traps right now are complete garbage. They don't have any sand in them and are worse than even hitting out of the desert. I keep an old club in my bag to use in desert/rocky areas and ended up using this club in the sand in fear of what the traps would do to my sand wedge.

Aside from the poor conditions, I felt the day was well run. Due to the holiday, they had a shot gun start at 7am in order to allow the staff to enjoy the later part of the day. It made the round slower than usual and a bit frustrating due to the extreme heat but not terrible.

We will be back to play this course and would recommend it to family and friends but I REALLY hope the course management will fix the sand issues. If this continues to be a problem, my recommendation answer would change and I will stop playing there.

Mowers and sweepers everywhere cutting rough. Uncut rough grass laying in clumps so we moved ball on many occasions. Pro shop said course in good condition when I called prior to booking. Airplanes overhead continually. Mowers oblivious to golfers in their proximity.
