Rating 73.4

Golf architect Arthur Hills designed the Legendary Run, an affordable facility that offers country club-caliber golf in spic-and-span surroundings and with what management calls "the friendliest service in the world." Scottish links golf courses inspired the front nine of the golf course, which sits on 200 acres of land and features six lakes, and holes are named accordingly: Troon, St. Andrews and Turnberry, for some examples. It's a different story on the back nine, which weaves through woods and was influenced by holes closer to home, such as those found at Augusta, Winged Foot and Shinnecock.

Book two weeks in advance to ensure you get on for a round on the Legendary Run golf course, and leave your metal spikes at home - there's no reason to worry, as, conditions permitting, you can take your golf cart off the path if necessary. A far cry from Cincinnati's recreational golf courses, this one requires a collared shirt (mock, if you must) and non-denim pants (shorts work, too). The pro shop will dress you if need be.

A bonus for eco-thinking golfers: The Legendary Run counts itself among the members of the Audubon Sanctuary Program and enforces respect of the natural habitat.

Wonderful course in Cincinnati

The course is one the best public golf courses in Cincinnati, OH. The staffs are very friendly and kind to take care of all players. The green fee includes hot dog, a cup of beer or pop with chip. Green and fairway conditions are great in all seasons. Highly recommend. Thank you.

Great course

Today was a bit slow. Ranger worked hard to kick the slow foursome. Beautiful day and course was in great shape. Staff is super friendly. The food is very good and reasonably priced.

If you haven’t played at Legendary Run, you should check it out.

Great course, WAY too slow

They have to figure out the pace. 3.5 hours for the back 9. They have a ranger who did nothing to move along the foursome who ruined everyone’s afternoon. The bartender afterward thought it was a dead afternoon because no one had been in for an hour. Otherwise a great place. They just have to be serious about time.

Great condition

This was the first time I have played this course and the layout of the course was challenging yet a lot of fun. The course was also in extremely good condition. I will definitely be going back to play this course again.

Love the course, layout is great

Pace of play was the only thing wrong. We played a 5 hour round and had to wait on every shot. The course was in great shape and the staff couldn't have been nicer.

hot deal not honored or helped

club had an outing scheduled but still had Hotdeal on golfnow. they didn't offer any remedy so we wasted 45 min drive each way and no golf so frustrating day. golf course and golfnow needs to do a better job on their offers, compensate folks for their time waste somehow. Waste my whole a.m.

Best all around value

First time playing here. Tee boxes were the best I've seen this year. Plenty of staff working on the course and it shows. Challenging course with nice variation hole to hole. I'll be back.

What a gem

My group plays a different course every weekend and I always look forward to golfing here. The course is very challenging and always in great shape. The staff does a great job at monitoring the pace of play, but it can get slow. Tee off early for the fasted rounds.
