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.

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!

Was my 5th Arizona course and the first one that had grass in all the fairways. Booked the GN Hotdeal, best $ I've spent this year.

Excellent carts, staff, beverage cart girl was an amiable and professional young lady; no Barbie dolls here, thank you!

The grill was first rate. I went 22 over...but have NO complaints. Challenging but fair layout.

Will become my Arizona regular stop.

Staff were great. From the gentleman that greeted our car to the gentlemen that cleaned our clubs after the round and carried them to the car. Very friendly, courteous and seemed happy to be there. Course was in awesome shape. Very warm this day; reached 100. Not a lot of shade on course but had lots of gatorade, water and cold towels to cool us down. Bunkers are nasty. In great shape but big, deep and everywhere!!!! Hole 17 I believe you have to drive over the desert then there are 2 huge traps in front of the green. If you miss the green you are either in the trap or over the back. Very challenging. Scored not too bad considering. Would definitely play again but not when its 100 degrees. Could not believe the 2 walkers that played behind us. They kept up and played all 18. Whew!

Hard and fast, which is refreshing coming form the Midwest where they over water. Fairways tight and greens U.S.Open like. If you can't spin the ball its difficult to get it close. Bunkers gravel like but easy to get out of .

Course was in very good condition. Greens were a bit firm and that’s tough because of plenty of undulations. Bunkers were like very hard underneath very crusty sand making them almost unplayable. Nice layout and very good fairways and rough conditions so overall a nice play for the cost.

We paid $55 each when the course rate was $78. The course was in pretty good shape. Greens were fast but a lot of ball marks from other lazy golfers.
