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.

Golf course and practice areas were great. We were sent out on the back 9 first. The Cart girl didn’t carry any food but we were assured we could eat on the turn, but the canteen area was closed when we finished our 9...it was just after 3:00....no amenities on our last 9 ..it was hot ...and we were hungry..kind of ruined our afternoon. Good thing the course was excellent!

Back 9 and breakfast special was awesome! It was early enough to beat the heat, and early enough to beat the crowd so no one was behind us. It was nice sitting on the patio eating breakfast after our round ...which was also delicious! I thought it was a great deal!

I have played Legacy many times and stayed at the resort. The course is a very respectable challenge to golfers of all skill levels. The fairways are in great shape right now. Multiple tees allow for higher handicappers to play it forward and enjoy their round. For a low handicapper like me you can tee it up back and really work to score. The greens are work to read but they roll true and will hold shots into them. The bunkers are not up to the standard of the rest of the course. Hard packed dirt, no bueno. The practice and Instructional facilities are PGA Tour quality. All in all a great golfing experience.

Mid April and possibly the best conditioned course in all of Phoenix!! Course was in AMAZING shape.

As always, the staff were super friendly and accommodating. This is one of, if not thee best run golf course I have been to in Phoenix. They can be busy, but with a pleasant staff and a great course, you never seem to care of the round takes 4 and a half hours.

Bev cart girl was awesome, funny, cute, helpful and best of all, we saw here 5 times!

Practice range was in great shape, good coverage of grass, flat, music, but not overpowering...just a great day on the course.

It isn't the "hardest" track in Phoenix, but it could be the best maintained and it certainly is if you factor in condition vs price!!!

Great job to all the staff and management!

We are staying on site for the end of our vacation, and getting a great deal as residents of the complex. So we chose to play the last four days here rather than travel to other courses not in such good condition. Bunkers are very hard to get out of, and the raised greens make the course play long, but with the four different tees we could live with that. Thoroughly enjoyed our round, but glad that we managed to book early tee times. We'll be back!

Everything from driving up to the course, dropping off our bags, checking in, was a pleasurable experience.

The driving range and putting greens were top notch.

We started right on time, and the course from the teeiing off areas to the fairways to the greens were in beautiful condition.

The layout was very creative and professional.

We will definitely play and enjoy lunch and a drink again soon.

This is one of my favourite stops when I am in Phoenix. Staff are so helpful and friendly. Driving Range, practice green and putting green are super. I was sad to see that they had to go to a range ball dispenser. I really enjoyed the previous set up of balls down on the range between each driving spot.

On course service was great and the turn is always a treat. Hot dog and bevy Centre are excellent

Price is good and I think for value it’s the best in town.
