Greens in poor condition

I have played Legacy many times and I enjoy the course.
New Greens were in stalled last year but currently undergoing annual aeration and in poor condition. At least half of the greens are unplayable. I'd return when they are in better condition.

Good if you get it for less than $40

Legacy is a solid course that is more challenging for most golfers than the average track.

They would do well to have a couple of marshalls riding around to speed up slow players who invariably add 30-45 minutes of delay per round whenever I play here. Slow pace of play is my main complaint about Legacy.

Legacy is in great shape.

Wow!!!!!

Wow, what a great course! Rolling fairways, wasted area and water on almost each hole. The speed on greens could have been a little bit faster. We played the course twice. I think Palmer is satisfiend when he look down to his beatiful course.
