Beautiful!

Great course, lots of lake views. Played in a tournament out here and loved the course. Only complaint is that we only saw Lindsey on the beverage cart 2 times and that was after we called the pro shop. She was pretty rude to us after we called. Other than that, it was a great day and all the other employees were super helpful and friendly. Can't wait to play again now that I know the layout.

Not for seniors wih bad legs

Let me start with the people who work at this golf course, are top notch from start to finish. Comp food and drinks at start of round and at turn was fantastic. Course conditioning as good as any tour event you see on TV. But senior golfers with any type on waking problem should no that this is a extremely hard golf course with many long walks from cart path end to green and many steep down hill / up hill walks to greens and fairways. Four par 4s are path only. Beautiful course I just wish I was forty not seventy to enjoy it.

Wonderful course!

Beautiful course with major elevation changes and holes played around the lake. Outstanding condition on the tee boxes and greens. Greens very fast and undulated. Very scenic holes, not the most female friendly course but fair. Free snacks and nonalcoholic beverages a nice touch.

So so great!

Man this place is great. Like others have said, everyone of the staff I met was friendly, helpful, and went above and beyond to make me feel welcome.

Plus free lunch and drinks. Come on! You don’t get that anywhere. Plus free range balls. Don’t know how they stay in business, but I’ll be back again.

The course layout was challenging and in great condition. So so great. Great track.

Labor Day Well Spent

For this year's Labor Day, my Father-in-Law and I decided to return to Legacy on Lanier for the first time in about 2 years. Upon arrival, the cart staff greeted me in the parking lot and took our bags while giving us directions to check in and the driving range. We enjoyed our complimentary food and drink before heading to the range. Once we made it to the course we remembered how great of a layout was in front of us. Nearly 3/4 of the 18 holes had excellent lake views, unfortunately that meant wind became a huge factor. The course conditions were excellent: the tee boxes and fairways were closely mowed, the greens rolled fast and true, and the rough was thick enough to be a true hazard. Once on the back nine around the more scenic holes, pace slowed a bit, but with such beautiful views I completely understand. All in all, Legacy on Lanier is an excellent resort course to visit, I certainly recommend it!

Thanks for the review, we had quite a busy holiday weekend which sometimes slows down the pace a little. With 10-12 minute tee times we don't normally get over the 4.5 hour mark and always have some course marshals out there to assist.

Great Course

Beautiful course on Lake Lanier. Course is in great shape and greens running fast. Some really difficult holes on the back 9 and a great challenge. Staff was friendly, loved the food and drinks included. Definitely a course worth playing.
