Type Public
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.

Challenging course. Traps need more sand. Fairway grass was a little thin compared to other courses I played.. Friendly staff.

NICE COURSE

A very nice course in great condition. The front nine was easier than the back. More elevation changes on the back. Wished they had the course layout on the scorecard.

Beautiful layout, friendly staff

My tee time was early morning. I was a single. I got paired with two other singles. We got done in about 3 hours. The course layout was excellent. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The course conditioning was very good, but I gave it 3 out 5 stars because the greens were a bit scruffy and dimpled. A good roll out and they’d be fine. Overall, an excellent value for the money.

Great Course.

Great condition, beautiful views and fair layout. Only downside is the pace of play, and the bar and grill shuts down at 5.

Still Legendary!

90* on the course now that over seed season is over and the course couldn't be in better shape! Course conditions kinda what like what the pro's play! Greens sitting somewhere around 8-9 on the stemp! And the greens still have those pesky subtle breaks around the holes! Dastardly! Greenies on the north side of a hundy now and will climb as the season progresses but still a better value then some of the other local area venues. Better get out there now!

Horrible pace of play

Nice course. Horrible pace of play. Marshall was useless. Too bad because it was a nice course. Almost 5 hours to play and you could drive to your ball.

Nice course

Very nice course...front nine easier than the back. Course knowledge is a definite plus. You do need to be accurate off of the tee—because they have more narrow fairways with junk and homes on the sides. Would definitely play it again!

Gets better every year

The Head Greenskeeper and his staff have done an excellent job in cleaning out the scrub from the desert areas and now you can clearly see how the course was originally designed.

Well done!

Solid desert track!!

I was looking for a great alternative to the top end courses with top end prices. Legends Trail fit the bill. The course design by Rees Jones was solid. Very good layout, topography, and views. If you drive it straight you can score here. If you are crooked off of the tee it is all you want.

The only difference between this course and the big boys (Troon North, Quintero and We Ko Pa) is the green speed, bunker condition and the fact that the houses all look the same and some come close to the course in places. Tee to green, it is a good test in good shape and a pleasure to play.

If you are looking for a very good course at a moderate price, it is a good choice.

Try it, you’ll like it!

I try to play here whenever I’m in town. At least 2 or 3 times each visit.

Good looking golf holes and par 3’s are all good looking.

Very playable for all handicaps.

Great day of golf

Staff, facility awesome. Cart guys are always friendly as are the starters and pro shop. First week after overseeding (everything overseeded with winter rye... no dormant Bermuda) 3” of rain earlier this week didn’t hurt either! Great value!
