Style Desert/Traditional

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.

Pace of play

They had mostly twosomes including my twosomes. Yet it took a little over 4.5 hours. No marshal to find out why and do something about it. Why is it 4.5 hours is good time to most people when in this case golf should’ve been 3.5 at the most. What’s wrong with people making 3.5-4 hours the norm instead of 4.5.....

Great Deal

Awesome course, fair but challenging. Loved the May special and chance to win$10,000 for a hole-in-one on #4 par three! I’ll be back to try again.
Price included a burger and beer after the round.
Course was in great shape and the weather was spectacular. If only I could chip...

Great condition

The Legacy is in great condition for May. Teed off at 10 am and finished in just under 4 hrs. Only complaint is the inconsistency of the sand traps. Also was given a golf cart without an ice chest. Overall an enjoyable round.

Burger & Brew

This is our 25th year coming to AZ and our 15th time playing Legacy. The course (grass & desert area's) we as good as ever, but the bunkers are really in need of work. The sand is spotty at best meaning it's hard to find in most bunkers. Our starter Bob was fantastic and even in the midst of a very full tee sheet, he kept his cool. Our server inside for the Burger & brew portion of our day was also superb!!
The only thing I would say about the course as a whole...Please quit posting 4:10 or 4:20 for a round, if you want to do justice for people, Post 3:45 if you want to have a good pace! Having played far to many rounds in my 50 years of over 4:30 -5 hours because no one (rangers) wants to move people along when needed and it really takes the fun out of it for those of us who are willing and able to play in 3:45.
Besides it's about an additional $36,500 you can make in golf revenue with more rds along with food & beverage :)

So thanks for a great time once again!!

Good bang for your buck, but the last two times I have been over five hours, waiting on every tee box sometimes with multiple groups. This isn't doing much to entice the younger golfer. Bunkers were very inconsistent.

A little pricey for average conditions

Staff were friendly and layout was good. Not lots of scenery around course and you knew you were in the desert. Some bunkers were like concrete sidewalks. Greens were decent but tough to read. Other than bunkers, course in good condition though I’ve played better for the price.

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.
