Great Course - too pricey for conditions

This was my second time playing this course - I LOVE the layout of this course and the diversity of the holes. 500-600+yd Par5s and some difficult but short par 3s.

It was downpour rain that day which is not their fault, but considering they were closing the next day to over-seed, and the course had already been scalped, $75 is way too much to play on wet dirt and dead grass.

I'll be back but most likely in the summer when prices drop. Not worth spending $100+ in the fall/winter/spring.

Tough Conditions

They are getting the course ready for over seeding and fairways and greens were cut extremely short. You got lots of roll with tee and iron shots but the greens were hard and extremely fast. Normally the course is fantastic.

Rip Off

First time playing the course & extremely disappointed. Staff was great, practice facility has everything you want. They start over seeding next week but it looked like they hadn’t watered in a year. Extremely dry & burnt out. They should have told me & given a major discount. It was the usual price which was ridiculous. I played with a local & he was shocked at how bad it was & said he had never seen it like that before. I won’t go back or recommend!

Great course friendly staff

good warm up area. course in great condition, greens ran smooth. plenty of nice cold water to drink on the course . Some people complain about all the small aircraft flying low over the course because of the nearby airport. I liked the sight of the airplanes, they were not a bother at all.

Will definitely play again

course in excellent condition

for storming and hot weather the course was in great shape...some water in a few bunkers. Plenty of planes taking off and landing throughout the round to distract you. The staff was okay could have been a little more welcoming.

Longbow - Fair and Fun

It's been 10 years or so since I've played long bow. The course was well maintained. Pace of play was excellent. Played as a twosome had to wait for the foursome in front of us but that's understandable. Will look forward to using the "surf carts" next round. And see how that speeds up pace of play. They have an excellent practice facility area. Greens were a bit bumpy, slower and inconsistent. But that is typical for summer golf conditions. Staff was awesome! Would play this course again.

Longbow Golf Course

It was an extreme heat warning day, but that didnt stop the course from being player ready. This is a players style course. Open and driveable for those long hitters. The tee boxes, fairways and greens were some of the best for the time of year that we ate having to deal with. The award for greenskeeping team shows they put in the work to give us players an enjoyable round. This course will give anyone a good time.

Longbow is always a fun challenge

I’ve played here several times and always enjoy the challenges this course provides. Tons of risk reward shots. Would’ve been nice to know on GolfNow that they were aerating like they didn’t when I look up Ken MacDonald. The greens still rolled really well considering. Anyways I love Longbow and it’s always going to be one of my favorites.

Great Course

First time playing Longbow. Great course and well designed. Having a map of the course was a necessity playing from the back tees. Only complaint i really had were the greens being slow with sand on them. Fairways are in decent shape and I will definitely make my way back!
