When the architect Rees Jones created the golf course at the Legend Trail Golf Club, he created a golf course that brings out the Old West-style air of Scottsdale and a fun and testing golf course with greens made of bent grass. It's a premium golf course smack dab in the Sonora Desert.

The golf course at the Legend Trail Golf Club features broad fairways, diminutive bunkering and tees placed on islands, and has been called one of the Top 100 golf courses by Golf Magazine. The magazine also gives Legend Trail 4.5 stars out of five among its

Best Places to Play, and has one of the Top 100 Woman-Friendly Fairways, according to Golf For Women magazine. Panoramas include local sites like Pinnacle Peak, and a round at Legend Trail Golf Club gives all levels of golfer several different shot-making options.

Golf a late-afternoon round on Friday or Saturday, and head back to the Trail's End Grill from 4 to 6 p.m. for specials on drinks and appetizers.

Legend Trail Continues To Impress

At a time of the year when most courses have disappointing playing conditions, Legend Trail impresses. The course was aerated 2 weeks earlier and was in terrific condition this day. The fairways were lush, and the greens outstanding. The bunkers had nice sand, though they were a bit damp early in the AM. The pin placements were particularly challenging today, but well struck putts rolled beautifully. The pace of play was excellent as we finished our round in just over 4 hours and did not have to wait for any group ahead of us. We didn't feel pressed and could play at a comfortable pace. The customer service was excellent as usual. This is one of my go to courses in Scottsdale.

Great Condition and wonderful Staff

The course is in Great condition. The Staff is super friendly and helpful. They know the course well and have nice tips on how to approach certain holes. The only thing I’m not a fan of is Mats on the driving range, But everything else about this course is Superb.

Pace of play was excellent, perhaps due to recent punching/sanding of greens. A good time!

NEEDS A RANGER

The course is a bit dry. The greens were bumpy, but not terrible. We got stuck behind a threesome who lagged behind 3-4 holes from the group in front of them. Once they finally let us through we flew through the rest of the holes as there was no one in sight anywhere.

Stop players from teeing off #10 unless it is after 4pm.

Singles have no priority on a golf course. Seems that when I play here in the summers, in the afternoon there are gentleman that tee off on number 10, or are singles that cause a pace and flow issue by flying around passing you up and/or cluttering and eventually Messing up the rhythm of the round. . I think the club has some sort of yearly or monthly membership program where they pay upfront and it allows unlimited play or cart fee only to jam as much golf in that a local can muster to play? A few times I have played here and teed off mid day, and play the front 9 in 1:30 minutes. Then all of a sudden the back nine is jammed up and with singles who are riding up your %%% or moving around trying to find a gap. The back 9 took 2.5 hours yesterday and it was all singles and twosomes from what I could see in front of us and behind us. We were passed by a twosome in two carts playing polo on 15, and another single on 17. I don’t mind playing in 4 hours but the problem is the disruption of the rhythm, and players trying to sneak in front, and trying to find a space moving around the course like they own the place disrupting play and/or filing gaps.
I suggest that nobody tees off the back 9 until after 4, or before 7:30am. Aside from this distraction the facility is overall consistently super throughout the year in all regards. My suggestion is a simple solution and fair to all the full paying golfers. This is why the game is best playing walking. Bottom line any good golfer knows what I am saying.

Nice course

Course was dry as a bone, but still in good condition.
I am sure they are letting some of the grass die off this time of year.
Second nine has some great holes. Some of my average ratings are only because the covid has limited the amenities.
Overall a very good experience.

I liked it, but maybe not on a Friday before a holiday.

Nice open layout, fast approachable greens. Free range balls, a huge plus.

However, the pace of play was slow, making it for me, not enjoyable. 2.5 hours on the front nine. I went to 10 and saw the back was going to be even slower, so it was time I picked up and went home. I’d like to play it again. I think with faster play it could be a lot of fun.

Awesome course

Awesome course, was in great shape, very challenging need to get off the tee or in trouble. Only water is hole seven however remaining holes stay on fairway or big trouble. Viewa and course conditions out perfect. Do not look for balls hit into desert landscape, saw a 6 or 7 foot rattle snake in the middle of 13th fairway. Will play again and great value for the $$
