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.

Course was in good shape for the amount of heat and sun it has been taking over the past few weeks! Greens were longer than usual to combat that, so they rolled slow (but true) for the most part. Fairways were good - rough was dry but I’m not complaining. Starter and staff inside were very nice! Water (to drink) on most holes which was a huge plus...temps were in the 90’s and humid. Pace of play started slow but picked up...overall a great experience worth the money! Highly recommend. They’re doing what they can to keep this course one of the best public courses in the greater Cincy area. Keep it up!

Normally one of our favorites in Cincinnati, but the greens were really struggling and way slower than normal. It appeared they hadn't been cut in a few days which was disappointing.

Slow was the word of the day... the pace of play was horrible. We had a group in front of us that was playing so slowly and it was 90+ degrees out. The ranger told them multiple times to pick up the pace, but that didn’t help. It was almost a 6 hour round. The course was in great shape, but the greens were not cut and were bumpy, but other than that everything was great

I was visiting from one of the golf Meccas in the country (Arizona), so I am particular about my golf. The cost was so reasonable, I thought the course was going to be a big disappointment. I was pleasantly surprised at what great shape this course was in. It had a great layout, nice sand and really good greens. This was one of the best non planned golf outings I have ever taken. I would play this course again in a heartbeat. It cost more to take the Lyft ride back and forth to the course than it did to play the round. It was an outstanding experience.

Course was in great shape. Extremely slow play due to 2 high school girls foursomes and 2 boys foursome in front of me the whole front nine. I would have chose a different course had I known. Staff is always friendly. Love the course. I will be back, but I will ask about the pace before I drive an hour to wait on EVERY SHOT.

Course is in good shape. Worth playing. Rough was thick and tough as a result of prior week’s rain. Good challenge.

Always nice people in clubhouse and out. Pace of play usually an issue, worse on Sunday 5 hrs. too long. No marshals moving folks along. Its difficult when groups are sent off as quickly as they are without sufficient on course management.

Legendary Run is a wonderful track modeled after some of the best holes golf has to offer. It provides unique challenges on each hole, and rarely offers a flat lie. Scoring well on this course requires smart course management, but where's the fun in that? My disappointment with the course on this day has to do with the condition of the course, as it is showing signs of abuse. The fairways show ruts and bare divots left behind by careless players. The greens are marked with unrepaired ball marks, scuff marks from shoes, and the occasional wedge rut from a careless club toss. I hate to see a layout of this quality show such a lack of caring by its players.

Overall it is well worth a visit, but I am glad i didn't pay full rate.
