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.

This is a wonderful golf course. Personnel are friendly. Had a quick breakfast in the grille before golf. It was delicious. Service great. The course was in pretty good shape for this time of year. First time to play here and really enjoyed the layout. Pace of play was very good. We will definitely return to play here

Played in the summer heat during a long drought. The course is challenging with lots of desert carries and a few water holes. The fairways were burned in some spots, but that is true on all courses in this weather. The greens were exceptionally hard, the ball rolled over even if you bounced on. There is a great view of red mountain. Enjoy the scenery and lack of high season crowds.

Although all the courses in AZ are obviously in much 'dried out' condition than few monthes ago, this one is relatively in better playable condition.

Fairway : brown golden dried spots here and there but still playable green grass

Green : still runs okay. . .

Layout : interesting fun layout.

I have played this course at least a half dozen times now. Though this is the latter stages of our transition period here, the fairway grass seemed a little stressed and was not as lush as it could be. The course needs to get some water on it because the summer heat is right around the corner. The bunkers also seemed a bit harder than I remember. Instead of fluffy sand it was almost like trying to hit off hard pan. The club just would not penetrate. Apart from that, the layout is always great and the greens were in good shape and consistently fast.

The only reason I bring up the pace of play, is there was a group of local Longbow players in front of us and they were playing the green tees. They really had no business playing that tee box.

Always look forward to my round here, great mix of precision, length and you need to think about ball placement on the greens ir youll be facing the dreaded 3 putt..

Conditions were excellent and pace was OK for a Sat AM. We finished about 10 min past where we should've been. Not a deal breaker by any means. Staff was friendly and the starter got us out on time.

I would recommend this course for players of all abilities, very challenging and enjoyable.

Liked it. Fairly easy to find ball should you go into the desert. Greens fast but true and fairways in good shape. Sand traps were a touch thin and gravelly. Staff friendly, great burgers and home made chips.

Played Longbow for the first time on 4/25. Picked it because it was close to the house. What a pleasant surprise. Greens were hard, fast and rolled great. Each hole brought new challenge - sometimes off the tee box, sometimes on approach shots, sometimes on both. Pace was good - we played as a foursome in 4:15. There were lot of twosomes on the course that day which caused the Marshall to ride our foursome a bit. That was annoying, since we weren’t playing slow or bad. Overall I absolutely loved the course and will definitely be back.

Longbow is a wonderful course, with the exception of their sand traps. They should be called dirt traps. Not acceptable!
