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.

115°F weather, still fun!!

Kudos to Longbow, booked as a single at 11:40am on hottest day of year (so far) yet they were plenty prepared. Every three or four holes there was large igloo coolers of over 100 water bottles, chilled. Even had multiple maintenance cree members check that I had plenty of water. Even had two water bottles in the cart’s cooler and ice prior to the round. Cart guys were present. Interior staff smiling and helpful. Hot weather means fast fairways and kinda baked bunkers, the sand wasn’t too bad but it was hot. Fairways rolling forever. Had multiple drives go over 350 (my usual distance is 290-305). Greens were receptive but rolling fast (the sign upon bag drop said running at an 11) and true. No true thick rough to speak of, but enough to make you focus for the fairway. Desert shrubbery was well maintained. Areas around fairways and greens had some inconsistency and burn areas so keep an eye on July/August conditions. Overall fun times, played 18 as a single behind groups in under 3.5 hours. Only downfall of this championship course is the architecture, could be a bit boring/repetitive.

Awesome

It was hot!!! Course was a little dry. Maybe because it was 110. Ball rolled forever though. My advice, play to the bunkers and you'll be able to get out of trouble, if you don't land in the fairway. really made me strategize more. Can't wait to go back. Staff was righteous.

Awesome course!

Moved to Mesa in November, and have played many courses. Longbow is a few minutes from our home but prices were a bit high through winter. Finally treated myself to the course many raved about yesterday. By far Longbow is my favorite course. Las Sendas was very nice also but Longbow is what I like best. Lost several shots being my 1st time playing that course. Great experience, super challenging and fun.

Always great

Course normally in good shape and good summer rate value. Excellent layout and appropriate challenge for any skill level.
But, stay out of bunkers as they are crusty, lumpy, course sand / dirt. With the amount of play and tournament hosting they could do better!

Great bang for your buck

One of the best deals in the Valley ($50) during the summer when many similar courses still want $75+. Lots of roll in the fairway (for us low ball drivers), thin/crisp lies, and above average speed greens that roll well. Bunkers a little thin but still playable.

Great course, nice staff, but overpriced.

The course plays beautifully. The greens were hard, but rolled nicely. We were a five-some for the front nine due to a booking mistake. The drunken college aged foursome in front of us held us to a three hour front nine. We told the staff at the turn around 3pm, but the Marshall had left for the day. A staff member went to talk to the group but the beverage cart girl arrived after that talk. We sat on the 10th tee for 30 minutes. When we got to the 11th tee, we told them we were playing through. It was a beautiful round after that.

One of my favorite courses

I love this course. The staff is great, the practice facilities are top notch and the course is always in great shape. The layout is challenging but rewards good shots. I will always be back.

Good local course

I've golfed this course many times. I thought the overall course was in good shape. The bunkers need some work, but so do the bunkers at a lot of other local courses. Staff is always friendly.
