I'm from the UK so this type of course is different from what I'm used to. I played here with a friend of mine who is a member so I had the advantage of local knowledge but I must say the course was in great condition and was a pleasure to play. Fairways and greens were all in great shape... More

Great bag drop that was well labeled. Parking was convenient. The club house was nice and checking in was a breeze. They had a bartender, Bingo! I got my Bloody Mary. Ocean Breeze Bloody Mary mix. Was good. The bathrooms were clean and my bag was on my cart. I got some brief logistics from the starter and off I... More

Longbow is one of the more affordable GREAT golf courses in the Phoenix basin. Ken Kavanagh and Blake Stirling designed an awesome golf course in the desert, on a flat piece of land. Worth the drive. Enjoyable and yet challenging. Affordable golf is in demand, and this place is priced well.. Great design by Kavenaugh and Stirling !

Obviously their tee times are very tight on this course. We teed off at 1200 and finished 5 1/2 hours later. Brutal. No marshals on the course moving people. It's a nice course but we will not return.

This is a nicely laid out golf course but the sand bunkers are no better than concrete. Hard compacted sand with rocks. For $140 I expect nice fluffy sand, not something you'd use to lay patio bricks on. There on course washrooms appeared to be an after thought. Men's and women's all in one washroom. Really? Their restaurant menu is... More

Really good shape course. Holes were fun, this courses does not play through backyards like some local courses.

Went out this way for the Phoenix WM Open. Played here on Friday Morning. Tee at 8:30. Grounds were well kept, people all friendly and the course was solid. Greens were absolutely perfect.

We played here on a beautiful sunny day and had a great outing. If you like a desert experience you will love this course. There were more desert critters on this course than on any hiking trail we have taken. The views are also beautiful. Staff was courteous and helpful. The rate of play was very quick. It is a...

Great golf course; very user friendly; greens are very rolling and challenging but not lightning quick Play the green white combo for a fun round or back up to the blues Championship tees will really get your attention, but not stupid hard Long distances between greens to next tee but with top notch carts, not an issue One downer: pro...

About 6 months ago I chastised the Longbow management for the lack of drinking water on the course. Yesterday we played again, and over the summer they have solved the issue with brand new fountains/bottle re-fill units on each 9. Nice improvement. Since I had complained about this, felt it only fair to acknowledge the new dispensers.
