Editor's Note: Course closed for business in 2018.

Legends Golf & Country Club offers an 18-hole championship course that has become one of the most popular golf courses in central Florida. The course features dramatic elevation changes, which allow golfers to take in breathtaking views of the surrounding hills and citrus groves. Legends Golf & Country Club is known for its par-3 holes, but one of the most memorable holes is the par-4 fifth hole. The hole is a downhill dogleg left with an elevated tee that provides a spectacular view. Legends Golf & Country Club has a classic, moderately difficult layout that is difficult if approached too casually but also quite playable, even from the championship tees.

Sorry to see Legends close

This isn't a review because the course closed before we could play. Frankly, I'm surprised at the closing.
We come to Clermont from NC two or three times a year and try to play a different tract everyday while we're here (usually a week). We actually skipped Legends sometimes because it was too crowded and the pace of play was nearly five hours. Things must have changed drastically since we played there in April of 2017. I hate to see it go as it was usually in great shape whenever we played. Hopefully, someone will rescue this course as the options in Lake County are dwindling. Sugarloaf Mountain, Palisades, and now Legends have all closed in the last decade.

I’m owed a refund

GolfNow has got to know when a course is closing, the day I played, no pro shop, no restaurant, no beverage cart, player in my group couldn’t even buy golf balls, no range, nice layout but course was in horrible shape due to negligence. This was absolutely the worst booking I’ve ever made at GolfNow and my group was so disappointed I can’t describe!!!

Sad to see it go

Have heard rumors this course was closing. Have played here before...a bit long for the regular hacker, but reachable....and a beautiful course. No Markers visible on fairways...had to look for a sprinkler head or fairway brick. Pro shop was empty...restaurant had a paper "closed indefinitely " sign taped on the door. Not much grass on the Fairways...greens were terrible. Too bad...this really was a nice place with a nice restaurant.

Legends

Greens were in desperate need of water. Fairway grass was sparse and also needs water. Layout was fine but overall course needs quite a bit of TLC. Could be an awesome course .

Course will close March 31st!!!

Went there to find out, if it is true that they’ll close it – and unfortunately it is true!!!
This was always one of the courses I went for an easy round although the conditions and service became poor every year a bit more. But the track has an interesting layout. One can see that there is no big interest in maintaining it for the remaining days. The rate is by far too high!! Pity, but it seems that after Windemere, Grande Pines, Diamondback etc., another course go to the history!

This course has an interesting layout but......

We are a party of four golfers and was disappointed to find out the course is closing on the last day of March. The restaurant was closed and the course conditions reflected a course about to be closed. Only wished someone had let us know during the booking process . Would not have wasted $160.00 US which converts to approximately $220.00 CAD.

Golf at Legends

Excellent and challenging course design. Shows signs of neglect and subpar maintainance Probably economics. No halfway house. So pack something from home. Staff was very friendly.

As this course is closing at the end of March, it is not in good shape. Fairways are hard and rough, greens are patchy. Pace of play was good. In its day it was good

Allowed to tee off early as cool temps kept some golfers away. Course continues to improve with fairways in good condition and greens needing additional time . Always treated professionally by staff.

disappointed

We play every year we come to Florida. I was really disappointed in how much the course had deteriorated. I always thought of it as a superior course, but the neglect was obvious. It looked to me that they just gave up on it.
