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.

Very nice desert course. The desert can certainly get you, but driving areas are predominately generous. I am from Michigan, so when I play in AZ, I want to play a desert course and this one is one of my favorites.

Many more attractive and better conditioned courses in the desert around Scottsdale. No real food available at the 9th hole cafe or on the carts. Target golf. If you tend to stray, don’t choose this course.

Had a great day at Legend Trail what a beautiful layout.

Only surprise was their use of propane powered golf carts instead of electric. Very noisy and a bit smelly. Maybe next time they need to replace their golf carts they should think of upgrading to electric powered.

The course is in good shape. I noticed several fairways that had not been mowed in awhile as they were longer than normal. Don't know if this is the norm here or not.

The range was mats only. Not a fan of the mats. No rubber tees for driver or woods.

Practice greens did not putt like course greens. The layout is interesting with some narrow landing areas.

To balance out the players the starter moved some of the tee times. I have no problem with this as it should make for a smoother round. The pace was slow. We waited on every hole and most every second shot. We saw the ranger like 3 -4 times on the front. Originally, I thought he was to there to keep pace. He never said anything to us, but watched us closely. ???? I found out on the back 9 that the group behind us called to complain. I guess they thought they were special. Guys, if you can see there is a group ahead of us then we CAN'T go any faster. Some people need to calm down and use their brain. I will credit the ranger in that he never said anything to us because it was OBVIOUS that we were not the problem. I don't like slow play any more than the next guy, but I absolutely HATE to be given grief about the pace that we had nothing to do with.

My wife and each paid $64 on a GolfNow Hot Deal. We thought this course was a good value for that amount, but would not be worth the $100+ normal greens fees. Nice course, but nothing extraordinary.

Great layout. Challenging but not unfair (especially from the tips). Greens roll true but too many ball marks left unrepaired (I had to fix at least as many as I made). One thing I wish management would address is the sprinkler head yardage marks. Many are not marked so if you don't have a range finder, you're stuck with best guess on some approach shots. It's an easy fix, and shouldn't be at an unreasonable cost (as opposed to installing GPS on the carts). Other than that, this is a great option for a public course.

A decent track for the money on the north side. Fairways good, bunkers fine, greens a bit off from what they've been before but fine. Pace was great, staff always good.

We booked our time at a very favorable price through GolfNow. The weather was great, the course beautiful and the pace of play was very satisfactory. The course is difficult with two especially challenging par fives on the back. I cannot wait to play it again. An overall great experience.
