Length 6946 yards
Slope 127
Rating 72.0

Legacy Golf Club sits on 28 acres of Dwight B. Heard's turn-of-the-20th-century ranch, home to 1902 silos that decorate the 18th fairway - once the tallest manmade things in Maricopa County. More history is on the first tee, in the Sierra Vista House which counts among its early-1900s visitors Theodore Roosevelt and Pancho Villa.

Gary Panks designed the golf course at the Legacy Golf Club, giving it lush fairways, strategic hazards and manicured greens to test all golfers. Native flora grows from the landscape, and the club's elevation offers a vista of Camelback Mountain, Squaw Peak and the skyline of Phoenix.

Slow back nine

Played at a good pace on front nine - back nine slow had to wait every shot
Some bone head ahead of us played two holes with no shirt or shoes - drove cart by greens
Marshall did not do a good job to increase the pace of play

Will play again

Great course! Comparable to its neighbor for sure. DO NOT get in some of the sand traps, you will be lucky to see where you are aiming. Greens are sneaky quick but not scary, breaks are tough to read. Top to bottom this is one of the best courses outside of the high rent district of North Scottsdale/Fountain Hills area. Will definitely play again. Course should encourage locals (not staying at the resort) somehow.

Love the Legacy

This is always a must for me when I am in Phoenix. This course has it all. Greens are always super and the staff is awesome. After a round a meal and beverage on the patio is a staple.

No waiting on a boring course

Played on Easter mid-morning and finished in 4 hours. No waiting on any of the holes! Fairways/greens are in good shape, but a rather monotonous layout...straight hole after straight hole after straight hole...then you are done.

Awesome course!

Finally got the chance to play this course after a rain out in October. This is a must play course and won't disappoint, especially on a hot deal. Super friendly staff. Course was in phenomenal shape. Greens were a little hard but rolled true. Personally ejnjoyed the layout of the back nine better but both were great. Multiple tees to choose from. As an out of town visitor, and having played about 20 different courses, this is in my top 5. Didn't eat here so no rating on that. Definitely would come back.

Great course

This course is one of the best I have played in the Phoenix area and is much better than many of the pricey courses around. The staff was excellent and seemed to care that we were having a good experience. The course is in excellent condition from tee to green. The resort itself is excellent—the condos are top notch and very well appointed. The restaurant in the clubhouse was excellent and service was outstanding. I am very pleased that I chose to spend my spring golf outing here and will definitely be back.

Unfortunately, Marginal at Best

The pace of play was painfully slow (full disclosure - we played after a tournament but way too many tee times for the available remaining daylight), the sand traps were either concrete of too much soft sand, the overall condition of the course was marginal - just a bad experience that will, unfortunately, keep us from playing here again. We have had good experiences here in the past but I just don't see us coming back again.

WINDY

All around terrific course today with fairways in great shape, greens very smooth and quick and the rough not very long so quite playable. Several bunkers had little sand while others were normal....otherwise the course gets a 5/5 instead of 4/5. Scoring was tough today, because of 25 mph gusts and near constant grit moving through the valley into our faces from the west. We played in 4:30 as a foursome....and would play it again in a heartbeat. Thanks Legacy!

Normally my favorite course but they need to handle pace of play better when college match is involved. 2 days in a row we waited and waited with college kids backing up entire course. Selling tee times after college kids tee off needs to be reevaluated. When I brought it up to guy at check in I got blank stare and no response.

Slow Play, Questionable Desk Staff

We have played this course often and have never had an issue. This round we were NOT told of a tournament in front of us. Play was excruciatingly slow. An hour and a half for 4 holes- actually we had teed off on the fifth and called for a refund. They said ok to a voucher. Back at the clubhouse we were then reprimanded and told that we were experiencing a normal round—so 6 hours is a normal round there? Never was before. So we got the voucher minus the 4 holes that we had played!! What class!

Starter w/an attitude

So we roll-up to the first box at three minutes prior to the tee time. Where we wait til the starter (Bob) shows up 5 minutes after our start time. He hands us a pin placement sheet and explains it. I then ask him why do you think we are running late? He says we are not running late. At which point, at this time, we are seven minutes late. He says “well if I would of called you to come up early you would of complained.” I said “Sir, I just asked you a simple question why we are running late” — he walks away.

On the second hole, I call the manager and explained. He was very professional and apologetic. To his credit, he clearly received my feedback as an opportunity to cease/correct.

Course was in good shape, despite the starters cuteness.

Tee time was to be 1::40 but delayed till 2:00. Was a 5 hour round, waiting on Every hole. No marshal. College tourney ahead of our group. 2 in our group quit due to slow play and group behind swearing as they were so frustrated.

Very challenging

Fairways and greens are in great shape. Course is well laid out and will challenge anyone especially on the greens. Under 4 1/2 hours for a foursome on a Sunday isn’t bad. I look forward to playing this one again soon.
