Legend Trail Golf Club
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.

Great Day at one of our FAVORITE COURSES
Had a great day of golf. Course in very good shape; friendly staff!
Nice course in excellent condition. Frost delay was unexpected and somewhat annoying, wish there was a way to e-mail the players re the delay.
Played in 4 hours on Saturday morning. Awesome. Greens were a little bumpy. Slightly overpriced.
Staff was great.
Not living up to its standards
Very disappointed today with the course. I found the greens to be super slow, very sandy, lots of holes from people not fixing ball marks. This course has always been Fantastic. I’ve been playing it for 15 years when I visit from MN and typically play 3 or 4 of my 10 rounds at this course. For 100.00 plus per round I expect more and I’m hoping it was a fluke. Typically the service is top notch. The waitress in the restaurant must have been having a rough morning because she wasn’t friendly at all. We only noticed cart girl once all day. Pace of play was awesome as usual. Rangers were doing a great job keeping golfers moving.
This was a great course, I loved the layout and found it very playable for all skills levels. Our group had one person shoot one under and one 90 and all enjoyed equally. Would recommend!
Teed off at 1:30 on time. Caught up to a 3 sum on 5 and were held up either on the tee box or getting on the green every hole after. They were not being held up. No Marshall in afternoon I guess. This seems to be the go around these courses that the crowd that pays a little less in the afternoon isn’t as important as the big payers. If your not treated right in the afternoon why would you want to come and pay big???
Great Desert course
Love this course, great layout and the greens roll nice- definitely will be back to play it again.
The course needs some TLC. Play elsewhere.
The course is in bad shape. Hundreds of unfilled divots on every hole and tee box. No GPS in the carts so determining hazards is tough. The bunkers are the worst I've played in over a decade - very little sand but lots of hardpan clay, which is difficult to hit from. The greens are in poor shape as they're bumpy and shaggy. And the Pro Shop and starter need customer service training. Here's the deal - we were a foursome playing at a sub-4 hour pace (nobody in sight behind us) and as we're about to tee off on 7 the starter drives up and gruffly tells us we're behind schedule and to pick up our pace. Yet there wasn't anyone in sight behind us since we started the round.. We finish in 3:45, 30 minutes ahead of their target of 4:15. So why the rude visit from the starter? There's lots of great well maintained golf courses to play in Phoenix/Scottsdale that provide a great golf experience, but unfortunately this isn't one of them. Suffice it to say we won't be back.
Terrible greens, otherwise very good
Really enjoyed the course layout, makes you think off the tee and some very interesting holes particularly 7-18. Good amenities. For the price you pay, however, the greens are very very poor. This may be a temporary thing, I'm not sure. Doesn't seem that anyone repairs pitch marks and they seemed very patchy as well. You expect better and it lets the rest of the course down, otherwise would rank it higher.
What a beautiful day, beautiful golf course, played with nice people loved the course great condition fun and challenging holes will definitely play it again.
Legend Trail is not a bad track or layout; it has some original and fun holes, and plenty of gorgeous saguaro cacti. The back 9 also features nice mountain backdrops on several holes, and you can definitely have a good time on the course.
But it does need improvement on lots of things to be up to par with the competition:
-Several tee boxes and greens were patchy and need better care.
-Distances in general are poorly identified, with pretty much nothing but the 150-yard pole to help you out.
-Several hidden obstacles (desert wash, sand traps, water!) that can be reached but are not visible off the tee.
-Carts are old gas models with no extras (no washers, no GPS); not a dealbreaker, but not up to date with the competition.
-Several sand traps were just hard sand with no hopes of getting under the ball.
-Lots of forced carries, so short hitters beware!
-Most desert areas are not tended to, and very dense with all types of spiny plants and trees ; forget finding that stray ball, much less playing it.
-Routes between holes were not always clearly indicated. How hard is it to add a few signs and avoid some back and forth?
-The staff didn't seem to care about customers very much.
All of those issues can be resolved, but until they are, Legend Trail simply does not stack up to similar priced courses in the area.
Great course and service staff, greens are a little bare in spots. Overall well worth the greens fee.
Nice Layout,,Good Condition
I played the forward jade tees. Yardage was not long but with a number of forced carry’s it plays longer than stated. Greens were a bit shaggy. Played in a foursome in a little over Four hours. Would definitely play here again.
Greens are in poor condition
Compared to other courses in the area the greens are below average.
Fun track, hidden secreta
The good stuff-
We thoroughly enjoyed the staff in the clubhouse and the starters. The course was is pretty good shape, good lies were easy to find.
The not so good stuff-
The course has lots of hidden secrets and sight lines, hole maps or yardage books would go a very long ways. The frustration came from the grounds crews, we had several mowers forcing us to wait while they mowed, also not turning off their machines whilst on the green. At one point , 10th tee box, the grounds crew was 10 yards away and starting to yell for another helper amidst a backswing. Not my idea of “club” golf
