I made a tee time at the last minute and man I could not be happier that I chose this course! What a great layout. The course is a great test. Starts out easy but the back 9 really is a challenge. I played 36 holes, rode both rounds, 2 sleeves of balls and rented clubs (which were great forged TM irons and R15 woods) all for $119! I think the only complaint I would have is that an overseed was just completed so I had a a few mud balls in the fairway and the greens were running a bit slow. But honestly that is nitpicky. Great course great people. Not a fan of the fake grass on the range and the restaurant was slow and over priced but the golf was excellent!


Player Tip: I t may seem like a wide open course but it is important to put your tee shot in the right spot or it is tough to go at the green.

First time played here and wow it's now my favorite golf course in Las Vegas

Fairways were in amazing shape very lush great lies

Rough was in great shape full and thick keep it in the fairways

Greens were awesome shape smooth rolled very well and took the breaks they were suppose to very impressed especially in 100 plus heat

Customer service was top notch and was extremely impressed with the pro shop to the starter and cart service and the cart girl

Just a wonderful day I highly recommend to play this course

Ps the only problem is the cart paths a lot of them are pretty rough if they would re do those paths that are damaged this would just about be a perfect course

Awesome course - fairways were well manicured and had very few divots. Greens rolled true. Recently had some flood damage but crews were out repairing all issues. Cart path to #13 was flood damaged which will cost a ton of coin.

Overall a good value. If you are a single digit handicap have to to play the back tees or might not be that challenging.

Has a high slope rating but do not think it is as difficult as TPC Las Vegas or Paiute Wolf

Very friendly staff nice clubhouse with good sales

Course was in good shape greens rolled true average speed

The course is in great condition and a nice layout. Tee times were running 20 minutes late and then it was a 5 hour round. I hoped for better on a week day but as per the other reviews I read before booking, they just fit too many groups into the time. Only recommended if you have plenty of time.

Played this course for the second time, enjoy the layout and views. Course is in great shape, some of the pins were in challenging locations. Pace of play was a little slow for Thursday afternoon, but the staff let me play the front nine twice so I was able to get in 17 holes before the afternoon thunderstorm hit. Legacy is a great value, definitely recommended!

This is a good course. Played with a member, who explained they have had some water issues, which has caused a few rough spots in the fairways, but not a real issue. Greens were good and decent speed. Smooth. I would recommend and play again.

Very nice course, well maintained.

Good course to have fun and relax.

Green were very fast and wind made it even harder.

Very windy day that kept most golfers indoors.

Pace was great due to weather, wind gust of +35mph made it hard towards the last few holes.

Will play again next time in Las Vegas.

Course and practice area are top notch Fortunately there was a group of players who allowed us to play through after a few holes which brought us in in under 4 hours. Thank you!

We are firm believers that residents should get a better price then visitors but possibly they could offer a few more deals to visitors to get them to their courses.

Fun day! Thank's again to the fellows that let us play through.

This is the only course I've played in Vegas where you book a round more than five hours before dark and can't finish. It has happened to me three times at The Legacy, and I'm done. This time it took three hours to play the front nine. After waiting 20 minutes on the tenth hole, we were allowed to go back to the first tee and play the front side again. This time there was nobody ahead of us and we played it in an hour and 15 minutes. That's 1:45 spent just waiting for the slow pace of play. The tee times are not spaced properly - most are 7 or 8 minutes apart - and the course just gets jammed. Then they allow walk-ons and try to squeeze them into an already full tee sheet. It makes for a super-slow round. I won't play there again.

Well maintained course w relatively flat terrain w wide fairway. Though i screwed up the game after not having played a while i think its pretty easy course to tackle. The gentleman who is local and a regular here claimed it is challenging course but its far easier than many that i played in.

It is quite cheaper than most in vegas and it was definitely worth the money.

Nice course, beautiful day. Unfortunately too many players were on the course making for a frustrating 5.5 hour round. With all the courses to choose from in the Las Vegas area I would recommend choosing any of the others over Legacy. Experiences like this are why golf interest is on the decline.
