Longbow Golf Club
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.

Top notch greens
This is a fun track with plenty of challenges along with opportunities to score. The greens are in amazing condition. Every put rolled fast and true. Driving range is nicely groomed with good greens to hone in the iron distance before heading out. Fairway grass was in good shape, nothing special but overall this is one of the best courses in the area. Will be back for more birdies.
Golfing under the airplanes
I’m not sure if I love the hobby planes flying overhead or hate them. I suppose it depends how often I
Able to keep it in the fairway honestly. Tucked away in the new corner of the red mountain 202 makes it very easy to get to. The staff are always very professional. Great course overall.
In pretty good shape for the time of year
Very playable, the bunkers are mostly dirt though.
Tees, fairways, greens in decent shape.
Staff is great.
Good Playing Conditions
Course over-all was in generally good shape, particularly with it being 110+ degrees in the AZ heat. Fairways were very playable, while greens were true and fast. Sand traps (and there are quite a few) could use more sand. As a single, played through one foursome and completed the round in just 2 hours and 50 minutes. Definitely a challenge from the champion tees and worth checking out ASAP..
Excellent Course, Better Value
Staff is always friendly & on the ball, fairways & greens are excellent!
Outdoor seating with the misters & TVs everywhere make the 19th hole excellent too!
When I played there before, it was next to impossible to get a ball to stop on the greens. This time the greens were a little slower and it made the course a lot more fun. The staff was friendly and they were great about separate carts. This is so important to me during the pandemic. Love golf, don’t want to die for it.
North Mesa Surprise
My son enjoyed our first round at Long Bow and look forward to playing it again. Greens were fast and fair
Very Distracting and Slow
I was surprised how slow the pace of play was. On top of that, it was very difficult to concentrate because of the numerous airplanes taking off and landing so close to the course. Maybe for the price I paid, it was worth the distraction and the fear of an airplane landing in the fairway.
I would have given this course a higher rating if not for the maintenance crews. Twice they were parked in front of the greens with their carts. They would turn and look at me and completely ignore me. I realize that you must get some work done, but I'd think you'd let the golfers through. Nope. Maybe some people would just fire a shot up near them, but I don't want to hit anyone. Having to stop and wait for an undetermined time really breaks up your rhythm. Eventually they would finish up and leave so I could continue on. This happened several times.
Otherwise the course is in decent shape for summer. A little thin is some places which happens this time of year. Greens look like they have recently recovered from aeration. Fast, but good shape. Sand traps are just traps. A thin layer of dirt and very little sand. Played from the "Green" 5-9 Handicap tees. Shot 75.
Great Father’s Day
I went out for a mid morning round in the really hot 106 degree Arizona sun. I was paired with 3 others and we were given 3 carts total to accommodate the COVID 19 regulations. The course supplied water bottles with ice in the coolers, the ranger had water, the beverage cart, and the cart barn all had water bottles as well.
The course was in typical Arizona summer conditions but better than other courses I had played recently in the area. Great pace of play and overall a great experience.
Rock hard bunkers
Could not get a club under the ball. Skulled the ball every time. I’m not a great bunker player on a good day, but the bunkers here were unplayable. Sand needs to raked and loosened up much better.
Not much rough to the sides of these fairly wide fairways. Once off fairway, you’ll find a playable shots about 50% of the time. Double bogey lurks around every corner but good tee shots on many par 4s can get you into wedge territory. Greens are often thin, long and undulating, making approach shots as important as tee shots if not more. This goes on for 18 holes. Enjoy, I did this, time anyways :)
Great day on a great course
Was greeted by a staff member that got my clubs set up on my own cart and ready for the round. The pro shop was just as friendly which has been missing from other local courses, good job to Longbow. Tee boxes and fairways were perfect for the time of year. Greens were firm but slower than expected. Some local knowledge is helpful but not needed as the trouble on the course is in front of you to avoid or challenge when able. Play here for a fair challenging round.
Range grass was dead. Many dead spots in fairways. And near greens. Greens rolled fair, but had rough spots. Pace was great. Overall, not worth the current rate.
Excellent course in "tweener" shape right now due to scalping for the summer grass to come in, thus the cheaper rate. Still had a fine time and the conditions are not bad, they are just less than great. Through heat and dry conditions the ball was travelling real well. Couple of bunkers that I was in were rock hard.
