The Legacy Golf Course is one of Robertson County's must-play courses. Opened in 1996, it is not as old as some other courses in the area but the designer, Raymond Floyd, took advantage of the existing mature woodlands spread throughout the lush, rolling hills. At 6,755 yards, the course is seemingly short but it is narrow, and be prepared to face troublesome hazards almost everywhere. It is notorious for making balls from even the most slightly errant shots disappear. It is a tough but fair challenge. The golf course starts with a tricky par 5 with a bunker on the right followed by a par 4 that requires a 200-yard carry or you'll surely be faced with trouble. The back nine at Legacy G.C. is slightly less difficult but there are still plenty of hazards as well as several blind shots.

Good course for the price. Played another course the day before and it was in horrible shape and was weary. For the time of year, this course still had green grass and the greens were receptive and true. Not too long but had some challenging holes. For the price we paid, this was great...a little further out than I thought.

First time playing The Legacy. I had always heard it was a nice track in good condition. It however is suffering from what most other courses are in this area. Marginal fairways due to late bermuda growth. Collars on almost all greens are a mess with hard pan, no grass. Not sure what happened to the bunkers, however they are rebuilding them. I must say I did enjoy the layout , it is both challenging and interesting with a nice variety of holes. The greens were in good condition, so putting was true and fun. Also noted the efforts to repair cart paths. Assuming the course can recover from its current playing conditions, I would play it again.

I'd be willing to bet that this course was top notch at one time 10 years ago. I could still almost see it as it once was. The staff were friendly and helpful l, and it was easy to see that the operators did the best with what they had. With long narrow fairways, and elevated sloping greens, it was by no means easy. It was worth the price in my opinion, but the 5 star rating on a discount tee time app was an exaggeration at best.

Played the course during the spring so the greens were aerated when I played. They did call me earlier in the week to let me know which was nice of them. Still played well just didn’t make many putts. Great layout and I am sure it’s a top notch course in the summer. Will try to make the trip back down and check this out when it greens up and the greens are back to normal.

We played the course on our way home from a golf trip to Alabama. It is a nice layout, but it does have a couple of holes with trouble that you don't see from the tee so take advantage of the free yardage book they offer you. The Bermuda grass was dormant and they did not oversees, but the playability was very good. The greens were also in good shape. I would definitely play it again if I was in the area. It was a nice course and an excellent value.

Course is in off season condition, but the greens were rolling true. Only issue was the placement of several pins. The course, from the back tees, is still relatively short, and I reckon this was the only way to protect it from lower scoring...However, several were in indefensible locations. I enjoyed the challenge, and posted a decent score, but for most higher handicaps, that couldn't have been fun at all.
