Nice course but the ball carries really far and for me off the fareway:( The Hospitality was great! Great day.

Wouldn't expect to find a Gem like this in Mesa, Easy access from the 202 Freeway. Just have a Sandwich Bar for food, but go there for the Golf you won't be disappointed

Thoroughly enjoyed our four days playing this golf course. The layout was fantastic and the staff were friendly and helpful from the start. If you are in the area it's well worth a game. Steve North

Longbow is a course formerly owned by the Boeing Company. It is immediately adjacent to their helicopter manufacturing plant so you see a number of the finished products flying nearby. As there is an airstrip very close (Falcon)you will have small planes flying at low altitude directly over you. The course is well sculpted with several challenging holes. It is... More

We had a good time--yes it is on the flight path but we thought that was a fun sideshow to our game. Course was in great shape, fairly forgiving. Not a high end experience but a pleasant round.

First of all this course is in Mesa, not Chandler, Scottsdale, or Phoenix. On any given day you can find more rabbits than golfers. paying over $100.00 to play this course is absurd. This course is located in the flight path for take offs and landings for Falcon Field, So you have the constant sound of small prop planes above... More

With many tee options (like green islands in the desert) this course is a favorite in Mesa. What you would imagine is true desert golf. Although flat, very challenging and interesting golf holes. A definite course to play.

First time playing Longbow. Very nice layout that was a good balance of challenging and fair. Already figuring how to play it better on our next trip. The staff were great but they didn't have a marshal helping speed along play...took a full 5 hours. But it was very fun and worth the time. Slightly frustrating that range balls were... More

The facility is very nice and the service was excellent. The greens were very hard and fast. Got faster as the day went on. Greens were also a little bare and patchy still. Not what I expected for the money paid, especially to others that were cheaper.

This course is very tough but fun to play. Staff in all areas were very friendly and helpful. Greens roll like crazy so watch. Lots of planes and helicopters flying overhead. Some of the fairways are very close together so watch if you spray the ball a bit. Nice clubhouse. Range balls are included in your green fee.
