Beautiful scenery and challenging holes

I try to play Legacy about every 2 months and it was cool and windy but absolutely beautiful by the lake. I can't say enough about how nice and helpful the staff was and always seems to be. Greens were in great shape and for a cold winter course was in great condition. The scenic views on this course make it seem like a vacation getaway. And the other feature is included with your fee is a lunch of hot dogs, drinks, chips and more. Definitely worth the drive with some very challenging holes.

Saw prior review for same day. We had a 11:36 t-time, carts lined up in order of times, we got off al little early & played right at 4 hours, pace of play good, no wait. Tee times managed well prior to noon. Greg in golf shop friendly on phone & in person, he wore a lot of hats, from running counter to replenishing concessions/snack area. Course in good shape, grass dormant this time of year, still had wet areas from all the rain, cart path only which can slow play. Would love to play when dry & in spring/summer when course is green. Fee covered entry into Lanier Islands, range balls, all food & beverage (exception alcohol). This said would not pay posted price, a little steep for me (Mr Frugal) but highly recommend if you can get a deal or you're not golfing on a budget. $32 shown is my part of a purchased fund raiser certificate

Tough course for the 1st timer

Rangers need to be out speeding up play today. Understand that due to recent bad weather that it was cart path only, but it took way over 4 hours to play today. Great facility, great deal. Ran out of food after 9 holes too, that was not good.

Thank you for your review. We apologize for the less than stellar experience you received on December 26th. Following an initial review of operations that day we did see some areas of slow play that were not particularly well managed. As our course is a little challenging at times we do see some slower play around the holidays with a higher number of players not having experienced the golf course layout before. I would like to investigate in more detail though and would be very grateful if you could email us with your reservation name and starting tee time to GClarkson@LanierIslands.com. Thanks again for the review and we hope to hear from you soon.

Perfect weather & course

I have been good experience with this course every time I played here. The staff members are very polite and kind. The courses are well maintained and perfect condition. I had played with my customers from New York and they are so happy with this course. The money I spent with is well worth! Great job!

Most picturesque course in the area

I have seen the course from our boat on Lake Lanier many times but I had the pleasure of playing the course today for the first time. I was impressed by the vistas, course condition and layout despite the colder than normal temperature. Tough course for my skill level, but I can’t wait to play it again.

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.

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.

Every time I play here I am amazed at the beauty of this layout. Staff is excellent as always. Be careful on the backside. Holes 13 thru 15 will eat your lunch. Very challenging yet enjoyable course. Conditions are excellent.

A must play for any golfer

What a beautiful course. I can't say enough about the scenery; the holes were well designed and challenging, and the grounds well maintained. My only issue was that the rough that lined the fairway was a bit too rough ... lost 6 balls because if the ball landed in the rough you couldn't see/find it (the rough was the same height or more than the balls themselves). Be sure to ask for a course map if it's your first time too ... the carts do not come with GPS, or electronic maps and are not stocked with the booklet showing the course outline - luckily we found one of them on the course by accident.
