Not great shape

While late in the season, I found the course to be in poor shape. Not a fan of “target” golf. Felt like it was about lake front holes, but the layout is not natural. On the plus side, having free food and drinks is amazing. Free water on a hot day was awesome.

Excellent and Challenging Golf Course

The price seems high initially but when you take into account that you get range balls, free drinks and free food and it's definitely a good deal. The course is always in incredible shape but it is very challenging so bring some extra balls. Very much like a links course with narrow fairways and small landing areas on almost every hole. Overall, the course is stunning with tons of picturesque views and you are doing yourself a disservice if you don't get out here and play!

Fun, but the Back 9 is challenging!

Really great course that has multiple views and shots over Lake Lanier. The rough was really deep and made it hard to find the ball if you were off the fairway. They were doing some cutting that day, so I expect they are making it a little easier. Back nine required good long drives and accurate shots to the tee. I normally lose 2-3 balls each round, but I lost like 8-10!! I love the place and will play again this fall when it is cooler.

Great Track

Beautifully maintained golf course that has some of the most stunning views of Lake Lanier you've ever seen. Great staff, free food and drinks, beer on tap! I would encourage anyone who loves golf to give Legacy a try. You will be very happy you did.

Great Experience

Played 50+ rounds at Legacy last year. Every time is a treat.
Beautiful scenery, course always in great condition. staff very friendly and accommodating. Would high;y recommend although not sure I should. Don''t want more competition for tee times. Bring extra balls with you. The lake can gobble them up.

Great Track

If you play from the Blues it’s a challenging driving course. Fairways are tight and tough to advance ball very far from the rough. But a fair and fun course to play. Will be back to play again.

Best I’ve played in GA

Excellent course as far as layout. Tough to critique the greens because they were recently aerated. But the people I was playing with told me that they are usually in great conditions. They do need to work on their GPS in the carts.
Will definitely play it more often.
