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.

One of the great Easy Valley Layouts

It’s been a while since I’ve been here, and the condition of the fairways are a little rough, but it’s June in Phoenix and last winter and this spring were bone dry so it’s not really the fault of the course. The greens were in pretty good shape as were the tees and bunkers, we flew around the course in the afternoon until a monsoon storm blew in and we hightailed it to the clubhouse! This course will always play firm and fast and is a great challenge for mid to low handicaps from the longer tees.

Greens in good shape

Overall the course is in good shape for summer in Phoenix. There are some dry and thin spots but that is to be expected. The greens were in great shape. We played at 10 by the time we got to the driving range it was pretty much bare dirt.

Longbow

Course was in pretty good shape for summertime in Arizona. Fairway was a little firm and greens were fast however the greens were able to hold the approach shot.
Bunkers were great and had real soft sand in them

Overall a great time!

Our group played at Longbow recently and had a wonderful time. The course was in great shape as it was in 100’s that day. We used the golf Now app to reserve three spots to play. One of our group added a fourth after the reservation. So we showed up with four players that day but only reserved three spots for a morning tee off. Upon checking in the staff behind the counter informed us that a fourth had been already added to our threesome. Thru the Golf Now app. He told us that we couldn’t move that player to another group that was behind us. So we were at a stand still. I asked him “do you want to cancel three players @ $53.00 person just for one golfer who registered as a single?” After 15 mins of deliberation, the staff called another staff to try to resolve the issue. The other staff effortlessly just asked the single player if he didn’t mind teeing up with the twosome behind us, which he graciously accepted. The hold up over this caused us to tee off 15 mins late of our 6:50 am tee time. The twosome didn’t mind adding the single golfer. The whole situation could of been handled better and less stubbornly by the golf shop staff. In my experience people who sign up as a single golfer, don’t mind playing with strangers…they don’t mind joining other groups who have reserved the time slot otherwise they would not add themselves to threesomes that have booked it. The guy was hassling us saying he couldn’t do anything about it. Then a staff who thought “outside the box” came up with the solution.

Warm and Accommodating

This is a great track. It was hot (106) but this course does a great job keeping water and ice available. They have restrooms all over as well, not something I feel we see enough here in AZ.

Dry and dusty

Are they reseeding? Cause the fairways have been dried out and mowed very close followed by big vacuum machines. Greens are fine.

Summer Conditions are Here

Course had recently been clipped short to allow the Bermuda grass to make its claim for the summer. Conditions were very dry. Both variables made striking the ball from the fairway more of a challenge. Green-side bunkers had workable sand, whereas the fairway traps were hard packed. Greens had been sanded but ran at a 10. Tee boxes, for the most part, were in good shape. Our foursome completed the round in a comfortable 3:50. A bounty of water bottles could be found at every third tee. Just wished range balls were included, like at other Troon-managed courses.

Great course

We love the golf course. The only thing we find a bit frustrating is the bunkers early in the morning. Many people are not raking them

Good Course - Challenging Layout

Conditions were good. Lots of interesting holes. There was a line to warm up at the range; a little disappointing. Some improved cart path directions would be helpful; would be easy to get lost if I hadn't of played with a veteran.
