Pretty solid course
Nice course set on a beautiful piece of property. Layout was good but not amazing. Conditions were also good but a bit wet still from the rains last night. Only disappointing thing was that they sanded and put small holes in the greens recently. Apparently they sand the greens every couple weeks which seems a bit overkill to me but I’m not a superintendent. They must know something that all other courses don’t but hey they still rolled alright. Not the easiest of walks but definitely doable. Played it for the first time which will probably be enough for me unless someone who invites me really wants to play there. Better courses out there for the money but overall a very good course.
Fastest greens we'd played all week
We played Legacy Ridge on Day 4 of our annual Colorado Golf Binge. We found the course to be in fine condition and the greens were the fastest we'd experienced all trip.
Hole 9 is a classic. Be sure to keep your downhill approach shot to the left side of the green.
And #18 is a real challenge to avoid the trees and sand.
I saw some bike golf caddies there but didn't get a chance to ask about trying them. Next time!
Great layout and fun to play
I have played almost every course in the Denver area, but for some reason I never made it out to Legacy Ridge. I think I figured because it was a muni course that it wouldn't be very good. I was very surprised to find out how much I liked it. It is a great layout, and if you hit it straight you can score pretty good. The course was in great shape except for a few bunkers that were under repair and/or not raked. We played on a Sunday so the traps should have been raked.
