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.

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.

One of the top courses in the state without a doubt. Lots of variety in the hole layouts, greens & fairways make good use of the hilly plot of land and all elements of this track are kept in well above average condition.

Tee boxes were in good shape on all holes and the fairways, which had varying grade, often allow you to attack the green from different routes. Even our group of higher handicapped players kept their tee shots in "the short stuff" and didn't find the fairways to be as narrow as the description says they are.

Greens are always entertaining because you can be within six feet of the hole and easily three putt because of the breaks. A couple of the greens are massive so you get a great roller coaster ride going from one end to the other.

Bunkers, which I unfortunately visited several times, have very well kept sand. Even in the dead of winter after several inches of rain they were fluffy enough to splash the ball out of. Sadly can't say the same for many higher priced TN courses in the dead of summer!

Rated the Off-Course amenities as "Average" since the dining area is outdated. There are a number of nice TVs on the wall, but the chairs are super uncomfortable and the rest of the room (and the outdoor sitting area) could use an update. Have seen much worse though, and the staff in that room are all real nice so I have gladly enjoyed cold beverages on the premises. Pro shop is in good shape.

An excellent course to play. Well laid out, somewhat challenging with the greens being the most challenging from a personal point of view. I have not adjusted to reading them correctly yet as they have some very subtle breaks which will make a good looking put just barely miss. Will definitely play again.

Ive played golf nearly 60years. I would rate this as one of the best courses Ive ever played. Extremely intersesting holes with beautiful vistas. Greens are very chalenging as we were warned. Ray did a great job with this tract. $40 on golfnow. You could pay well over $100 and not get a better course.

I can't think of one thing to ding this track for. The biggest concerns are always the greens on any course, and this tracks greens are running true. Fairly fast, but true. They have a good amount of undulation, making them tricky to read the break, but to me, that's a good sign. The layout is very peaceful & scenic, with no two holes a redundant design. Good spongy fairways. Really good practice areas. Staff always super accommodating. This track is a good value, but with the golf now app ...it's a steal

A well maintained championship golf course. A true challenge of golf with plenty of sloping fairways and greens guarded by well designed quality sand traps. No easy holes on this hilly golf course. I hope to play this impressive course again in the next visit to the area. Also walking the course is an added challenge with dramatic elevation changes from tee boxes to fairways and greens; and around water hazards.

A very good course which is well maintained. Greens are a bit tricky but in excellent shape. The "tricky" is probably due to my inability to always pick up the subtleties of the line of put. Course can bite you if you let your attention wander but overall a good test of golf on a well designed course.

* DEAD SHOCKED hardly anyone was out here. The course layout is challenging, with no two holes really alike. The greens were in great shape, and rolled fast and true. $16 with the golf now app just blows my mind that there is open slots. Totally worth the drive, if that's what you have to do. Pro shop staff was very friendly. You owe it to yourself to come play it.
