Longbow Golf Club was named after the Apache Longbow, a military attack helicopter that Boeing develops across the street from the course. The layout features a mix of long and short holes that skirt across rolling desert scrub land. The designer made good use of natural washes that run through the property. One of the more difficult holes on the course is #5, a 489-yard, par 4, which requires two solid shots to reach the small, well-bunkered green. The fairways are firm and many of the greens are left open at the front, enabling golfers to run up their approach shots. The 5,626-yard men's tee also has a ladies' course rating of 71.5 and a slope of 120.
Longbow recently underwent a course re-design and becoming part of a 330-acre master planned development. The new course includes several new golf holes and a larger driving range with expanded practice areas. The re-design of the existing golf course increased turf areas, created wider fairways and reduced forced carries, thereby enhancing the challenging 18-hole championship golf course to a par 71. The new clubhouse is relocated to a central location along the new Longbow Parkway.
