Recently played Longbow for the first time, and to be honest I was not impressed. First of all they get you for $10 for a bag of range balls, c-mon! We found the course to be very crusty and hard. The fairways were extremely firm and crowned in the middle so that even when you hit a good tee shot down the middle you would find yourself either in the rough or desert area. The greens weren't much better as they were very hard and did not hold approach shots. I don't know how this course got so many good reviews, because it certainly is not worth it. There are several other courses in the area (Ocotillo, Whirlwind) just to name a couple that cost less and are much better. I could not recommend this course to anyone. There are much nicer courses in the valley

Fun course to play. Keep your ball out of the desert for a chance to shoot low. Great views and very challenging. Not for the beginner. The customer service is usually crap, which is a bummer. Otherwise, I would golf there more often. Price is always high...not sure if its worth what they charge.

Great course with easy access off of Freeway 202. Course condition was average and the maintenance could be better. Cart girl and staff were friendly and the prices were reasonable. Enkoyed the track and the peacefulness of having no houses on the course was a nice addiditon.

Nice layout. You must position the ball correctly or it will run into the desert areas. Greens a very hard and fast. Use one less club for approaches. My favorite driving range and short game pratice area. Four and onehalf hour round. Cart girl came by a number of times. Water only $1.50. Sand traps need to be either rototilled or add some sand to them.

Don't believe the hype! Overrated course. Not a bad layout just kinda blah and not a true desert course. Pretty easy actually. Maybe that's why people like it. Practice facility is great however.

It's a beautiful course, the setting is outstanding. There's no houses so it's just natural beauty, we saw roadrunners there yesterday and lots of cacti. Great practice facility with outstanding professional instructors! The greens are challenging because of the contour and a lot of elevated surfaces and they are all different. Probably one of my favorite courses. Get the flight card.

One of the finest courses in the state and one of the most challenging. Very involved in the community.

It's a marvelous course, a target desert course. Great people, great attitude and they really support the community. I volunteer for the AJGA tournament there every year and it's wonderful watching the 14-18 year olds play the golf course.

A nice desert style course that provides a lot of room before you encounter desert and bushes...greens are usually pretty fast and roll nicely. The addition of a tree in the middle of the 17th fairway make the short par 4 a trickier hole. Nice mix of par 4's that are medium and long and try #1, the 626 yard, a par 5 from the tips...that is a long hole!!!
