About

Holes 18
Par 71
Length 6946
Slope 127
Rating 72.0
Type Public/Resort
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.

Wait, wait and wait

Got off 1st tee about 15 minutes late, but not a big problem for us. By the 3rd tee box, we began to wait, apparently they allowed someone 2 groups ahead to walk. Not a problem if they don't hold up play or allow you through. Not the case, we waited on every tee box the rest of the day. Course was great, everything else nice, but disappointing to have to wait.

Sunday afternoon round in the heat

After playing 18 holes of tournament golf at TPC, my buddy & I got in another 18 from the tips at Legacy for just $25 thanks to GolfNow. Really nice layout & the greens rolled well. Hardly anyone on the course for our 3:30 teetime in 105 deg heat so played it in just over 3hrs.

We were greeted at the bag drop and the guy, Nick, inside was really nice with giving us information about the course.

The par 3s varied in length and the par 5s were a stern test from the back tees.

Must play this course when in the area.

First Time Playing

Awesome experience.

First time playing here and was really impressed overall. Staff was very courteous and let me play by myself in the afternoon. Ended up paying only about $25 with the summer rate. This place has amazing (unbeatable?) value. They keep it in amazing shape too. Most of the holes were absolutely immaculate. Unfortunately the grounds crew was out there on several holes and it can get distracting when they drive so close. They didn't have much awareness but sure are doing a great job haha. Greens were rolling super fast. Had quite a few memorable holes. Clubhouse is also very visually impressive and the history of the location is interesting. The course doesn't have mindblowing panoramas but it does have a bunch of holes with mountain vistas. The real charm comes from the prestine condition, interesting holes, and classic desert ranch feel. It kind of feels like a "Grayhawk South". Will definitely return here and check out Raven as well.

Bargain

Course was very nice. In great shape. Fast , readable greens, lush fairways and great tee boxes. The only issue I had was that most of the financially well off golfers that frequent the nice courses believe they are above fixing ball marks and fairway divots. I fixed at least 5 on each green and filled any divots around my fairway shots. Not the courses fault just entitled nobodys being nobodys

Great course

One of our favorites, great layout for all skill levels.

Terrific staff.

Actual reward here for making good shots.

Greens roll true and traps are well maintained.

We took advantage of the "Burger & Brew".

Was a great deal!
