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 course; great value

I have not played Legend Trail in 20 years, but it is still a good challenge and great layout. Staff is extremely helpful and friendly. Since those years I have moved up to the Copper tees playing about 6000 which makes the game much more enjoyable. The last 3 finishing holes are a challenge, lots of desert to carry off the tees. You might want to get a round in before overseeding and prices climb.

Wow!!

Great course in great shape in the middle of summer. Tee boxes were perfect, fairways were green and the greens were great. Greens were receptive to approach shots and even had to fix a few divots.

Bring a rangefinder

There are no yardage markers on the golf course. I think I found 1 hundred yard plate on the course. Luckily for me I played with 2 gentlemen who had rangefinders. It was an okay experience. I probably will not return to this property.

The Legend Lives!

Wow! Very nice course! Lot's of challenging doglegs! Requires smart play off the tees! Greens still a little bumpy since aeration 2/3 weeks ago but they are healing nicely! #2 handicap hole (11) way underrated! Nice little back-to-back closing par 5's!

Front 9 a little more open and the back 9 requires shot maker skills! LT is the 15th fav course in my top 10 list!

July 10th

The course was in very good condition overall. The greens had been recently aerated and there was a significant amount of rainfall the day prior making the greens less than excellent. Pretty shaggy.

I really love the layout as it challenges you off the tee. Many drives have to be placed correctly or you’ll be looking at a punch out of the desert brush. Bunkers were in great shape.

An excellent course for the money in a beautiful setting. You should definitely play here!
