Reviewed by: Isoceles, Scottsdale
Played Saturday 8/5. 8:08 AM tee time. $42 included small bucket I played with some guys who play in Longbow’s men’s club. It’s pure desert golf, forced carries to landing areas. Lots of sand traps. Greens are large and tiered with a nice amount of slope. The course is right next to an airport, so you will get some plane noise.
Conditions were soft and damp but generally good. Fairways were nice with minimal dead or burned spots. The rough was similar to the fairway. It was cut short and was easy to play from. Some of the rough around the greens had some bare spots, but not to bad for the summer. Stray off the course and you may have a shot, but there are some areas thick with desert plants. Greens were soft and on the slow side. They firmed up and got faster as we played. The sand was inconsistent. I was in 2 traps that were OK, but my playing partners complained about many sand traps being packed down and wet. Tee boxes were fair. A few were not level.
Outside service was attentive. Pretty good practice facility. Beverage cart came by 4 times. POP was 4 hrs 20 mins. It has been a few years since I played this course. The greens used to be hard as a rock. They are much better now. Go give Longbow a try.
