Length 6946

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.

Excellent course and staff

The Legacy is one of my favorite courses in the Valley. Conditions are always good and it is a fair, solid challenge. Every hole is a good golf hole and the greens are always among the best around. The staff is professional and accommodating. It is a great place to play, especially during the summer months. Great practice area and practice balls are included.

Despite Airation

The Legacy course is always a pleasure to play, despite the aeration of the greens. The fairways and tee boxes are in great shape, my golf partner and I can only afford to play the $$$$ course in the summer so we invented the auto 2. When the greens are aerated after we land on the green add a 2 to your score and move to the next hole. It speeds up the game and relieves the frustration of putting on the rough greens.

Always in Great Shape

Legacy is a very popular course in Phoenix and also popular for resort guests. I play over 100 rounds per year here and I am very pleased with the way the course is maintained. The staff is like family and takes care of their customers. This year, they are doing some capital improvements: cart path slabs were repaired a few months ago (complete replacements), tee boxes are being leveled and refurbished, and the infamous #17 bunker--one irritant that causes slow play during peak season (March)--is being completed renovated and the size of the bunker reduced. The hole will remain just as challenging as before but will definitely play quicker. Finally, if you visit Legacy, be sure to tour the Legacy Golf Performance Center--a Golf Channel Golf Academy. This state of the art facility can improve the game of amateurs and polished players alike.

Legacy Golf Course

The resort is a very nice and friendly place to visit. Course was recently aerated so it was understood to wouldnt have the best greens. Tee boxes, and fairways as well as sand bunkers had been kept very player friendly. A must course to play and challenge even the best scorer. Other than 17 hole which is under construction to make it better all holes are wonderful during this time of year.
