Not Up To Usual Standards

Was disappointed to see the greens in such disrepair. Of course we've had lots of rain and little sunshine so far this spring so that probably affects this situation.

They have given up maintaining the course

We have played here twice before and each time we were impressed with the course conditions. This time we were astounded to see the greens literally pockmarked with old unrepaired ball marks -- possibly from last year. The bunkers were always poor here but the layout compensated for it. However, the greens are simply unacceptable. We are not coming back here.

Course was in poor shape. Greens were chewed up. Pace of play was terrible. 4 some held up by a twosome. No rangers. These clowns were wearing sleeveless t shirts and ripped up cargo pants.

Will not be back.

Great Course - Great Value

The course was in very good condition for April in spite of recent rains. Cart path only was not required. Played quickly with no waiting on any hole. And, at $16 it was a steal.

Challenging enough for the every day golfer

This early in the year the course was in very good condition...they made sure the pace of play was flowing by keeping rangers on the course. Also the staff is very friendly and very accommodating to your needs.

Great course

If I have to honest I love everything about this course except the sand traps. Not all of them but a lot of the sand traps need attention. Other than that this course is one of the best courses in north east Ohio. The starters are friendly and flexible with getting your group going, and the people in the pro shop are always happy to see you. The course is always green, groomed,and playable with a tee box for everyone’s ability. You will enjoy your day at the Legends.

Nice layout. Greens not good.

Just o.k. course. Not top 5 public course in Ohio. 4 hour drive to play, just not worth it.

Slow, slow

If you like a 5 hr round, this is for you. We were orginally paired with 2 others and they took off before our tee time. The idiot starter did not pair the twosomes together in a full packed course.on many holes we had 4 groups, 1 on the green, 1 in the fairway, 2 on the teebox. As a twosome we sat behind a 3some. Who waited on a twosome, who waited on a twosome. Stupid starter just let everyone go as they wanted instead of insisting the twosomes have to play together. Pretty easy Course. wide open.

Slow pace killed the day

I probably played one of my best rounds, but had to cut it short at 17 due to the slow play of the 2 groups ahead of us. At 5 hours in, I had to leave to pick up my child from school on time. The golf carts state the pace should be 2 hours 15 minutes for 9 holes. This wasn’t the case on this day. It’s not typically bad, but today was awful.
