Special place to play

This was my second time making the trek to Parris Island. The first time we had to get out of our car and wait for it to be swept for bombs and whatnot. This time we just flashed ID and went right through. I know that sounds better, but it was a little disappointing. The only complaint I had was that the kitchen was closed when we walked in right at noon. The course was in great shape, wasn’t too busy and we were able to breeze around. There are plenty of tough holes mixed with scoreable ones. The real treat is the patriotism all over the facility. Playing alongside active duty Marines in their base is a great experience. I will always try to make sure I make a trip to Legends for at least one round when I’m down in the area.

Well maintained

Horrible hot weather, but, if you're in the vicinity and going to shoot no matter what, you shoot. We had little of any breeze. Humidity was high. Started before 0900 and finished in under 4 hours. Most traps very nicely maintained. Greens and tees excellent condition. Rough was just that - rough, but maintained. Would have liked more available water or a kid on a cart. We were worn out by the 14th green. Greens ran true and shots held. Staff was helpful. Nice value, considering what you couldhave to pay to play in the vicinity..

Low Country Golf Perfection

I wasn’t expecting much and was dutifully rewarded with more. True greens, lots of water, great pace— what more could you want. Lots of pars are out there. Go get ‘em.

Perfect Conditions!

stopped on the way home to FL at Paris Island Marine Base, The Legends Course and played 18. The course immaculate, well maintained. The greens were perfect, rolled at 10.0 (posted each day on the 1st tee by superintendent). The only complaint we had was we couldn’t find any weeds; they just didn’t exist. Also, many greens had 1st and 2nd cuts bordering them, just as with the high dollar courses.

Nice Course

This is a very nice course, fairly well manicured and well laid out. The only thing that I would have liked, was a map of the course. I had to well placed shots that ended up in the water because I didn’t know that hazard existed. I would definitely recommend this course.

To expensive

hello, golf legends disappointed me, the price ... $ 60 per person instead of $ 40 because with golf now, it said resident or military but no clear instructions that we had to pay $ 60 instead of $ 40 ... the pitch for this price is absolutely overpriced. very disappointed ... Yves

Good Day of Golf

Course was in great shape. Greens were very slick and ball didn’t bite real good. Course was hard to find on Parris Island. Military needs to put up more signs showing the way on and off.

Love this course

Wonderful track running thru the beautiful low country marsh. No houses and wildlife abounds. You will here occassional bursts of machine gun fire and jets overhead. Fun reminders that you are on the Marine Base.

Excellent value

Difficult to get to, but, really enjoyed the course. I would recommend for all abilities. The drive through the marine base is worth the trip. Paid $50. Way better value than what you can get on HH. Watch out 4 the big guy on 9.

An honor to play at Parris Island Marine Course

A special experience to be admitted to the marine base, travel through it, and enjoy a very fine low country course at the southern tip of the island. Big, open course with lots of charm and moderate challenges, especially on the back nine. We had perfect weather and great pace of play, 3.5 hours. Thank you for a wonderful day!

Found the course a pleasure to play. The greens were quick around 11. The fairways were a bit tight. Only thing, had a bit of trouble trying to find it.
