The Longbow Golf Club offers 18 holes of par-72 golf that measures 7,003 yards from the Tips tees.

A round of golf at the Longbow Golf Club kicks off on the par-4 first hole, which measures 451 yards from the tips. The back nine kicks off on the monstrous 10th hole, a par 5 that comes in at 626 yards from the tips. The round of golf ends up a bit easier, with only 474 yards separating the tips tee from the hole, a distance that the golf club recommends golfers clear in four strokes.

Love the course but not fond of the conditions.

Love the course but not fond of the conditions. Great layout, plays like there has been no water for 1+ months. Reminds me of winter golf at home (CO). You feel like a pro level player for distance! Love the layout and looking forward to playing again when conditions are better.

Longbow. Mesa Az

Fairways in great shape. Greens a little too slow but have had a lot os recent rain. The few narrow fairways require thought on club selection. Cart paths are solid surface and a nice plus. Carts have golf gps and are in like new condition. Hopefully, they’re being sanitized. I failed to ask but had my own to use. May wait til summer rates before I play there again.

Austin of England

Fine course, well laid out and some really good fast tricky greens. 11on the stimp meter. I play Longbow regularly when I’m visiting as it’s a good but fair challenge. Efficient and well organised Staff. We played early 7.20 and finished in just over 3hrs 15mins. The 3 ball ahead of us were super quick.

Great condition after rains

I've played here several times and have always liked the conditions but was amazed to find them so good today after a full day of rain yesterday. Highly recommend to play here after rains when other courses have standing water all over the course

Very nice course.

Got an easy tee time on Golf now and played as a twosome in about three hours. A very challenging course. Free s are well guarded with mounds and bunkers. Greens were very nice. Not too fast in the early morning but speeded up later on. Nice practice facility as well.

Good course, maybe slightly overpriced

Longbow is a good track. Typical desert style course. Generally fairways are slightly forgiving and have ample width, but does have a few holes where it converges to narrow. Had a minor frost delay (about 37 degrees upon arrival at 7:30am) but the staff got things going as soon as the course allowed. I do think its slightly overprices for what you get, but worth playing at least once. I'd play again, but don't think I'll make it part of my regular list.

Thin fairways

Pretty good shape but fairways are tight and chipping area’s can be tough with little grass. Overall was worth trip. If you not used to playing tight lied, you’ll have trouble here.
