I took advantage of a great Hot Deal. Even though the weather was cloudy with occasional rain it did not have a bearing on the course conditions. The course was in very bad shape. The layout is good but the sand traps, and there are numerous, all needed to have their sand replenished. The greens also need to be redone. Many bare spots. People do not fix ball marks. There seems to be an issue with birds that are digging up the fairways.

I played this course with a bounce back coupon of $30.00-it included, menu breakfast, menu lunch and a beer. Range balls are complimentary, the conditions were excellent and Cindy is fabulous. The greens were true and the pace was excellent. I highly recommend this course, call for the specials.

Course was is in much better shape than last year. Greens were well groomed. Slower than most but but better shape than previous year. Pace of play was excellent along with the value. Love the free lunch and drink included Staff was very accommodating and attentive. The conditions from previous year definitely helped the experience. The course layout very fair with a few challenging tee shots and approaches. Good value for the money

There were a couple of spotty greens and all were a little slower than I prefer. However, all in all the tees, fairways and greens were green. Definitely a course worth checking out.

Legacy is a great layout and always a pleasure to play.. Overall the course was in very good shape except some of the greens had been damaged by the greens keeping staff with oil or fluids dripping from its machines? How no one notices this after the first sighting while operating the equipment is hard to fathom, however it didn't interfere with putting.. It just takes away from a wonderful course We caught a great deal from Golf Now which made our day even better....Never pass up the chance to play Legacy Golf Club..

After voicing the importance of pace of play, we saw a ranger after the first hole and not again for the almost 5 hours we were on the course. We also should have been warned about the condition of the greens...they are clearly about to be redone but it would have been nice to know that before we teed off. Fairways were in good shape and pretty interesting...housing is a little close.

I had read reviews prior to playing and the most consistent complaints were for pace of play. I experienced the same long waiting for what was a 5 hour round. The course was in good condition and the price value was excellent. Hopefully they can address the pace of play issue.

Last played 3 years ago. Found in excellent condition throughout. Plenty of water and waste bunkers in this Arnold Palmer layout. Pace of play only issue which in my opinion is due to difficulty of the back nine opening holes which led to a 2 hour 40 minute 9 versus a OK 2 hour 10 minute front 9. Worth playing again but if it looks busy don't expect a 4 hour round.

Starter suggested # 5 tee box and he probably was correct. Very windy, water and sand to keep you honest. I played extremely well (83) with a double on the 18th. Other friends not so good. Would love to come back and give it another try. ONLY negative, in some places hard to figure where the next tee box was located. Should have alittle more direction.
