Major disappointment

Course had just punched the greens on Monday. Would have been great to know that in advance!. Pace of play was horrible. How can you not have a ranger on course for the prices you are charging?? Had to call the course while we were on the 10th to get them to send someone out. They did so fairly quickly which was nice but I shouldn't have to call in the first place.

Only issue was the airaded greens, but all Florida courses are in the same boat there. GREAT lay out gators in the lakes as you hit over them. Playing from the tips really changes the course layout for the better.

Will not return.

I heard good things about Legacy, but will not return until I hear that someone has put some money into the course and trains the staff. It was busy at arrival, 1 cart person scrambling. Was told I was joining 3 guys at 756, just see the starter on first tee. After practice, headed to the first tee and no starter in sight…3 guys waiting on tee said they were part of a huge group and were going off at 815…when I asked where the starter was, they laughed and said welcome to Legacy. They were kind enough to let me play with them. The course has an interesting layout and 2 beautiful holes on the back. Fairways were decent in most spots, greens rolled ok…outside of fairway was poorly maintained and tee boxes were overgrown with weeds, terrible condition. Even the mowers had no courtesy. Saw us come up to the tee and just continued to mow right at us like we were not even there. Carts were run down with no gps and no water machines on course. With dozens of better options in the area, they will not be getting anymore of my money. 2 stars for the 2 nice holes on back and 3 very polite old men that allowed me to join.

Great Value when on deal

The course is challenging and in good condition. My only criticism is that the golf carts all appear pretty beat up and I would expect better for a course this nice.

Great Course Conditions

The course was in great shape and the pace of play was right on point. Even with the slight FL rain delay, we finished the round right at 4 hours.

Great to get back to play this local gem

From the first putt on the practice green it seemed like greens were back to their old shape from years back. Proud to say this carried through to the rest of the course. Such a great course, layout and with the greens in great shape, it is a must play!

Course had gone downhill a few years back. It is now back to close to its original maintenance level. Greens were very good.

Home Course

Legacy has had a yoyo history to its conditions and playability. Luckily right now they are on a high side! The course is in the best shape I've seen it in for the last 12 years I've been playing there. The greens are rolling pretty nice, not screaming but not slow either. Fairways are in great shape and tee boxes are just fine.

It's one fo the few courses left that doesn't have GPS in the carts and thank god. I hate the GPS systems and geofencing on so many courses. So definitely a positive. Cart paths need replaced on many holes, be ready for a bumpy ride there. If they could speed the greens up a bit more they'd have a top notch facility.

Practice Area: Grass driving range and not hitting into a stupid lake. So all grass. You can really work a proper practice here that includes how the ball rolls out or stops. Decent wedge green with a couple of traps and a nice size practice green that typically rolls about the same as the course. There's a 2nd warm up green by the first tee that is hit or miss for speed.

Clubhouse is nice, food is decent, nothing to go nuts over.

Course overall was in great shape, the greens were rolling the best in the area. There were several dead spots in some of the fairways but all in all was a great challenging course.

Rained out at 3rd hole

The course is well kept and challenging with plenty of sand and water coming into play. Tee boxes, fairways and even the 1sr and 2nd cut are well groomed. Sadly the sky let loose with rain on our 3rd hole and although we attempted to play a few more holes the rain plus thunder and lightning ended our round. We enjoy this course and the only negative thing I can say is that when it does rain the cart paths become mini ponds in numerous places.

Close to being really nice

The course was in above average shape. You could see where this was once really nice. This course could use some tree trimming and cart path maintenance which would be aesthetically pleasing. The greens have a chance to be really good but the fringes and areas around sand traps and hazards are irregularly maintained. Staff was on point and very accommodating. Practice range and putting green was in great shape. This course has a chance to be one of the best in the area.

Premier Course and Excellent Conditiona

I played this course for the first time. The course from tee to green was in amazing shape. It is tough when you don't put the ball in the fairway. The greens ran smooth and rolled great. The beautiful views and great conditions make for a great round.
