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.

Legacy Golf Resort

The course is in reasonable shape. There were many areas where the fairway was either bare and muddy or bare and hard.. The bunkers were a little shy of sand and hard. Overall it was good.

No grass on fairways

The greens are ok, but the fairways have no grass, just mud. The course has no free water, water is 4 dollars a bottle, if they keep this up they will have a lot of people falling over from heat. This may cause law suits.
45 dollars is not worth it for the course in this condition.

Coyote lakes gives you bottle water, a coller, their fairways and green are if far better shape, for 22 dollars.

Shop before you spend your money!

Have played this course many times over the past 5 years and it is now in terrible condition! The fairways are all very poor, mostly dirt. Hitting your drive down the middle gives you nothing but frustration and a poor lie.

Greens are just fair: dry and rough. Don't know what happened to the maintenance for this course other than it disappeared.

Nice resort course

Greens were in very good shape. The fairways were a bit sparse, but it is the time when we transition from rye overseed back to Bermuda. Just play "summer rules" where you can reposition your ball on decent grass. Wide open fairways, not much trouble, greens held well and putted true. Always enjoyable to take a lap around Legacy.

Biased

I managed to break 100 so I am pretty biased. The only thing I did not like about legacy were the sand traps. They are a pretty prominent hazard; placed strategically around every green and also in the fairways right around the 200 yard mark where ones drive tends to land. And they were seriously hard dirt. Not sand. Hard pan concrete

Otherwise it was a great course. Well maintained fairways and greens, great staff and a great day. I’d cone here again without reservation

No Water?

It's always a pleasure playing Legacy but when it's 106 degrees outside and there is no water available (except for $4.00 from the drink cart that we only saw once) it can get pretty dangerous. I think the facility ought to rethink that aspect of a round. With summer temperatures already here, someone is going to pass out and that won't be pretty. Other than that, pace of play was especially good. We didn't see anyone in front or behind until we got to 15. Bunkers are inconsistent.

Less golfers, still the same great facility.

Starting to see brown out in some areas, none of the bunkers went away while I was gone and the greens have some speed to them. Always worth the trip.

Course is nice but the bunker conditions make this rating a 3 star. Impossible to play this course with the condition of them. Fix the bunkers and we would have an amazing track to play

Canadian golf

Course was in great shape, tee boxes, fairways, and greens were great. Sand wasn’t great but better than the other courses I’ve played this week! I’d definitely recommend this course and I’ll be back to play another round
