I live right around the corner from Legacy and always enjoy playing this track. However, this was the slowest paced round I've ever played there and its continuing to get worse. 9:24 tee time...and it took 5 and a half hours to complete. Absolutely unacceptable. There's no reason a round of golf should take more then 4 and a half hours at absolute worst. Golf in this city is trending in the same direction, but Legacy in the past has kept golf rounds under 5 hours. I have no intention of going back anytime soon until the course marshal's begin to enforce pace of play. There's a difference between bad golf and slow golf. I'm a huge advocate for growing the game, but people need to learn the proper etiquette.

Played this course for the first time and was very happy. Course is relatively forgiving depending on the tee boxes and lot's of fun. Pretty long even from the 2nd last tees. Greens were in great shape and lots of variety in the holes. The beverage cart was around when needed. Highly recommend this course.

Was our first time back playing the course in over a year. Prior management was HORRIBLE and we said we would never return. Gave it another try since it opened back up. Management has improved quite a bit. People were friendly and there was a beverage cart numerous times. The website said our tee time should have been $35 since we played after 1pm, but the online booking said $65. Upon calling the pro shop they told us it would be $45. Made no sense to me so I asked if they would honor the $35 rate listed. They did, but then proceeded to lecture us on the cost of a round of golf there upon check-in. Not cool - please fix your site. And as far as the $35 we paid for resident rates - this is still overpriced in comparison to other courses in the area. My description below will yield insight to this.

As far as the course goes...

Pros: Greens and fairways were in very nice condition. Much improved since last time. Layout of the course is enjoyable. Not too difficult and you can hit driver on most holes.

Cons: Rough was terrible. No attempt has been made to water the rough, which is surprising seeing that its the winter and its not as hard to keep the course green. 14 to 16 of the tee boxes had not been mowed in who knows how long and the length of grass was quite a bit longer than the fairway. Pace of play was terrible and there wasn't a single pacer on the course on a Saturday. The group ahead of us barely made it past the ladies tees on a number of holes and wouldn't let us play through.

Recommendation: If you are from out-of-state do not waste time playing here. You will be disappointed for the amount of money they ask and there are much much better courses in the area for less money. As a local, I will not be back here until they learn to take better care of their course (referring specifically to the rough and tee boxes) and how to manage their website/business appropriately.

Three months ago this place was shuttered and it seemed that this Arthur Hills gem was gone from the Las Vegas golf scene. There’s pretty well documented recent history of the Legacy in the local media and fortunately it was reopened in October. I’ve been a fan of the layout of the course and really wanted to see how it played after a three month hiatus.

We were loaded up on EZ-Go carts without GPS. The range tee was on mats this day and ball were included which were in decent condition. The putting green was in excellent condition and the speed mirrored that of the conditions of the course. The starter got us off to the first tee right on schedule.

The recent overseed on the tee boxes & fairways has grown in well. Carts were rough only, which was showing signs of going dormant, but it was still fairly dense from tee to green. Some of the bunkers were a little light on sand. The greens held well, were mostly smooth and rolled true, but the speed was a somewhat slow.

The layout is mostly straightforward yet makes for a challenging experience. Elevation changes for the most part are limited to a few holes, but offer some pretty decent views in places. Despite being lined with homes, the fairways & rough are generous enough to keep your ball in the grass, unless you really go sideways. The greens offer some mild undulation and missing on the wrong side can leave pitching back up from way below the putting surface. One piece of information that was lacking were pin locations, either by flag color or pin sheet.

Past experiences with slow play has limited my desire to play here and unfortunately this day it was a little off point. There was no marshal present on this day and we waited and were waited on, logging our round in 4h31m.

Everyone on the staff we encountered were welcoming, cordial & very friendly. After the round the others in my group ate, but they were limited in their options due to shortages of food & beverage. The staff seems pretty enthusiastic and hopefully management will support them with the products they need to serve their customers. I expected some re-opening challenges for operator so allow them some time to get things figured out, but I'll be back.

I made a tee time at the last minute and man I could not be happier that I chose this course! What a great layout. The course is a great test. Starts out easy but the back 9 really is a challenge. I played 36 holes, rode both rounds, 2 sleeves of balls and rented clubs (which were great forged TM irons and R15 woods) all for $119! I think the only complaint I would have is that an overseed was just completed so I had a a few mud balls in the fairway and the greens were running a bit slow. But honestly that is nitpicky. Great course great people. Not a fan of the fake grass on the range and the restaurant was slow and over priced but the golf was excellent!

First time played here and wow it's now my favorite golf course in Las Vegas

Fairways were in amazing shape very lush great lies

Rough was in great shape full and thick keep it in the fairways

Greens were awesome shape smooth rolled very well and took the breaks they were suppose to very impressed especially in 100 plus heat

Customer service was top notch and was extremely impressed with the pro shop to the starter and cart service and the cart girl

Just a wonderful day I highly recommend to play this course

Ps the only problem is the cart paths a lot of them are pretty rough if they would re do those paths that are damaged this would just about be a perfect course

Overall a good value. If you are a single digit handicap have to to play the back tees or might not be that challenging.

Has a high slope rating but do not think it is as difficult as TPC Las Vegas or Paiute Wolf

Very friendly staff nice clubhouse with good sales

Course was in good shape greens rolled true average speed

The course is in great condition and a nice layout. Tee times were running 20 minutes late and then it was a 5 hour round. I hoped for better on a week day but as per the other reviews I read before booking, they just fit too many groups into the time. Only recommended if you have plenty of time.

Played this course for the second time, enjoy the layout and views. Course is in great shape, some of the pins were in challenging locations. Pace of play was a little slow for Thursday afternoon, but the staff let me play the front nine twice so I was able to get in 17 holes before the afternoon thunderstorm hit. Legacy is a great value, definitely recommended!

Very nice course, well maintained.

Good course to have fun and relax.

Green were very fast and wind made it even harder.

Very windy day that kept most golfers indoors.

Pace was great due to weather, wind gust of +35mph made it hard towards the last few holes.

Will play again next time in Las Vegas.

Course and practice area are top notch Fortunately there was a group of players who allowed us to play through after a few holes which brought us in in under 4 hours. Thank you!

We are firm believers that residents should get a better price then visitors but possibly they could offer a few more deals to visitors to get them to their courses.

Fun day! Thank's again to the fellows that let us play through.
