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.

Course moved me up a few spots as I was a scheduled with a 3some an theynended up bringing a 4th. Sometimes not practicing is a good thing! Played pretty well, course isn't that difficult. I played the Black tee's and played a lot better on the back 9...but the back 9 is 250 yards shorter. Course paired me up with 2 nice and good players. We waited on a few holes. I'd play the course again.

We had a 2:12 tee time but had about a 35 minute delay. Also, there was a tournament ahead of us of which we were not made aware when we booked. The fairways are beautiful, but the greens have ball marks everywhere. We did not get to finish because of the late start. We would play again but not after 2:00. We would have liked to finish so we could have enjoyed our round.

Great course for the money and in excellent condition. Course Marshall served no purpose and engaged our group for pace of play when the group in front was the group causing the delay and slow pace of play.

In general, I really enjoyed this golf course, but would have enjoyed it even more if the bunkers had sand in them. Every bunker my group played out of was basically dirt and 1/2" sized rocks, making it extremely difficult and frustrating, even when I used my 60 degree wedge with 4 degrees of bounce. If they would replace the dirt and rocks with some good quality sand, this would be a fabulous golf course. The greens really roll well and the lies in the fairways are fantastic.

Never have I ever played a round of golf where we had to wait 10-15 minutes on each tee box. We tee’d off at 1:56pm I had to leave at 6pm but my playing parter waited it out and could not finish his round by 6:30pm when the sun went down he was on the 15th hole. We called the rangers twice and still pace of play did not improve. When I went to the pro shop to complain the response I got was “you’re not the only one who wants to play golf on a Saturday in Arizona.. What did you expect?!?” I was appalled by this response.

Also the price to play was $70 for twilight and the course was in BAD shape fronts of the greens were burnt and brown. Last time we ever play here!!!

Golf Nowed it for $55 and hooked up with two locals Gary and Larry who showed me the ropes. It is always nice to have course knowledge. This course is an above average track although the greens resembled a 15 yr. old with acne issues, lots of scars and divot damage. With a little more TLC this course could be a very nice destination. With so much competition in and around phoenix I hope it gets the maintenance love it needs, then I will be back.

The course was in excellent condition from tee to green and the food in the clubhouse was very good. Everyone was helpful and friendly. If you are coming from out of town, like myself, I would highly recommend this course based on my experience. It's close proximity to the airport makes it ideal and I will play it again on my next visit to the Phoenix area. I am not a bot either!!! Lol

friendly, accommodating staff; especially the starter. disappointed we never saw a ranger as group(s) ahead were slow; and wouldn't even let a single through. well-maintained, well(?)-bunkered venue. many bunkers had little sand with lips above head high. greens very contoured and difficult to read, but that's just an observation. enjoyed reading the thumbnail history of the site written on the scorecard. round came with range balls. would definitely recommend.

You should not expect to be let through as a single as it creates a domino effect each group behind you has to wait on the group that let you through and the next one behind them and so on down the line. Come out with a foursome.

Staff was very accommodating as we were running late for our tee time, once we got there they were able to get us straigh out. We played 2 other courses in the Phoenix area while down there, while this is not the most scenic course it was a very well maintained and designed course with great greens! Lived every minute of it!

Tee to green a very nice course. Greens were awesome and held well and were almost unreadable due to their toughness. Numerous green-side bunkers were well placed and most were very deep and here is the rub. No sand to speak of so the lie was nearly always a hard-panned situation with limited ability to get up and down in a short pin situation or close to the edge where you had a 4-5 foot face. Took the fun out of the round because as soon as you hit one pin high but off line into a trap you could almost guarantee a double bogey due to the toughness of the greens on long putts after a bad trap shot. .Bummer as rest of the experience was well received. Also the staff was great as the credit card machine broke just as I was ready to go out to the tee so they let me go ahead as I promised to pay at the turn or at the end and then like a dummy I forgot. Going to club tomorrow to make my payment and amends.
