We got out to Longbow for a late morning tee time. The course was busy early but still had a good amount of play when we were playing.
COVID precautions are to the max here. No bag drop attendant and the guys on duty didn’t seem overly interested in providing any customer service even with the precautions. Big signs going into clubhouse say where your mask yet guys inside the store had their masks pulled down on their chin.
Driving range was in poor shape as were the range balls. Plenty of space to hit but little to no grass on any of the stations.
The course was in good shape overall. As said in the previous review, the desert makes the course feel tight. I agree also many of the holes had the same flavor to them. Most par 4s from the tees one up from the tips were in the 350-370 range. One par 4 was only 300. Some of the holes would have been more fun and challenging from the tips. Not sure why they don’t suggest a combo.
The greens were a highlight. All very receptive and putted fair throughout the round. They had some difficult pin placements today. The bunkers could use more sand but you could still be aggressive out of the bunkers.
Overall, I enjoyed the course. Not sure I’ll be back too quickly but glad I played. It’s a good choice for the right price given current conditions.» Close
