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.

Longbow Golf Club offers SoloRider golf carts, allowing golfers with disabilities the chance to get around the golf course, as the carts are able to drive right on the greens without causing any damage.

We ended up getting a tee-off deal and ended up being surprised by how great the course was. It was in good shape with greens that ran true. Only downside to the greens were they had lots of ball marks that were fixed incorrectly and had dirt showing.

Pros:

- Overseeding on the entire course meant the rough was in great condition

Con:

-Range balls are not provided. When you are paying over $100 to play the course, you should not be forced to spend more on balls to warm up

-No GPS on the carts

-Can be some airplane traffic

We ended up playing 5 rounds during our trip and this was my favorite course. The conditions and playability of the course were more than enough to overcome the airplane traffic. I will be back in the future.

I needed a tee time on the Thursday of the Phoenix Open and knew it would be a challenge to find one. It was my last day to play on an 11 day golf trip so when I saw an opening for a single at 9:00 and I jumped on it. The $85 rate seemed fair and I went with moderate expectations. I was paired with 3 nice guys from Pittsburgh who were pretty good golfers. We played the Green tees and were very happy with every aspect of the course. All of the grass was in tiptop condition and the greens putted very true at a sweet pace. Aside from one issue with a fairway pot bunker, I was fine. My fellow golfers had a few excursions into the desert and no go areas. A few holes abut each other, but there is no feeling of being crowded. There are no homes on the course, just a couple of warehouses and a few streets, but they are well out of play. On the front 9 the plane and helicopter traffic takes awhile to adjust to, but it eventually falls off. Longbow exceeded my expectations in every way. I think golfers of all levels can enjoy their round from the appropriate tee box without being beaten up. Now that I have found it, I think I will put it on my regular Phoenix vacation golf rotation.

I have played 5 courses in the area within the last three weeks. All of the others were better known and higher priced than Longbow but not one of them was a better course or had better staff or better vibe. Loved it. Also the golf boards were a lot more fun than I anticipated. I’ll be back many times.

Course is in perfect condition, greens are fast , excellent bunkers and great layout. Played a mix of the tips ( black) and green tees every other hole.

Very challenging and fun. I would add this to my mix when I come to Phoenix.

Nice track but getting too expensive. Range balls should be included in green fee. Bunkers need better sand as they are hard compact.

Enjoyed the round. No explanation from course personnel on pin positioning (ie: what the various flag colours indicated). It was just your next on the tee box and head on out. Greens very fast and lots of contouring. Playing partner had played the course before and had a range finder which was handy for those pesky pin locations. Played in a little over 4 as a twosome.
