Gorgeous course

I have played wonderful courses in the Columbia N.C. area, but so far none compare to the beauty of this course. Though tough and ate some of my balls, the views and the beauty of the course itself made the time and effort worth every cent spent to play on this challenging layout.

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.

Always challenging

Scenic fall views around the lake. Course is in good condition for fall. Things got backed up behind a small tournament, but once i joined up with some guys pace of play was much more even. Love the breakfast biscuits!

Well worth the price

First time playing. Course was in great shape. Loved layout and scenic views. Only downside was 93 degree weather, but ample ameofrom clubhouse made it bearable. This course will give you all you ask for. Definitely will be back and will invite friends.

Really enjoyed this course. Greens fast and rolled true. Did not believe this layout was this good. Definitely my favorite course in this area and I cannot believe it took me this long to play it. Will definitely be back.

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.
