Located in the west valley, the Legend at Arrowhead Golf Club is an Arnold Palmer/Ed Seay-designed golf course with a traditional layout. The challenging course has six lakes creating water hazards on many of the holes and several doglegs. The difficult to read greens are undulating and in excellent condition. Each hole, except for one, has bunkering on the fairways or protecting the greens. Legend at Arrowhead Golf Club's signature hole is the par-4, 426-yard fifth hole. It calls for a shot off an elevated tee with water running along the right side of the fairway as well as next to the green.

The Legend at Arrowhead is a great Course. The layout is challenging especially for the back tees and all the greens have some different slopes making putting on them difficult.

This course is awesome. I can show up, get checked in, get a cart and go in 3 minutes. Pace is awesome. Course layout is good, challenging, and scenic. Elevated greens and tees, up to date carts and markers. Workers are extremely friendly and welcoming. Love going to this course.

The green side bunkers (sand traps) are terrible. They have very little, if any, sand in them. What little sand they have is usually wet and packed down (hard as a rock). You can't play a conventional bunker shot from them. The course is a great layout, but it needs some work. Besides the awful bunkers, the tee boxes need to be leveled. Also, there were too many dirt patches throughout many of the fairways. This Palmer designed layout needs a lot of TLC to return it to the course that it used to be.

The course is not in the best shape. Fairways have bare spots and even the rough is dry and sparse. The sand traps may be the worse I’ve seen. Very hard traps. The greens were the only positive.

The course has a good layout and has a fair amount of water and sand along with some elevation on the back 9. The back nine is in much better shape and is more interesting than the front nine.

The course is not in great condition. The greens are fine but the fairways are marginal. It was worth $20 but I wouldn't pay much more than that.

I always enjoy this course. The greens and fairways were in good shape. My only complaint with the course condition is the sand traps. The traps are terrible. Sand is inconsistent. Some traps have a little sand in them and other are rock hard. My group finished 18 holes in 4 hours and 15 minutes (and that included letting a group play through on number 13). It is a fun course to play and I have recommended it to many of my friends.

Great practice area, course in good shape, a little rough around some of the fairways.

Greens nice but very slow the day I played, bunkers not very well groomed and the few I was in were short of sand.

Not saying this is in poor condition- just expected near excellent from other reviews and it being a Plamer design.

Love the layout other than the disconnected drive to 10 tee and return from 18... The cart return needs to be located away from players coming from front side and the current return location.

I’ve been in Arizona for two years now and have played most of the courses in the valley. Legends has become a local favorite, it’s got a home course feel, excellent cheeseburgers in the snack bar, friendly staff and an extremely challenging golf course. It’s definitely on my to play again lists.
