Great golf

We have played here several times a year, always worth the drive. I feel that bang for your buck, this course is #1. The course was in excellent condition again today, fast, smooth greens. Loved it.

A great course

Playing The Legacy is a very enjoyable experience. It's challenging for better players and reasonably forgiving for higher handicappers. It's by no means flat, but many people do seem to walk.

The staff is always friendly and willing to help when asked. The driving range is usually available and the practice putting green in great shape. For its size, the club house offers a good selection of your favorite beverages and the food is more than reasonable. Highly recommended.

Great Course

Although not a long course the green undulation makes up for it. The greens are always in great condition and the fairways were great also. A must play if you are in the area.

Highly Recommend!

My uncle and I golfed this course for the first time using the Golf Now App. The whole experience was great. From the time we arrived at the course, everyone was friendly including including other golfers and entire staff. Love the location of the course. I am from Nebraska so I felt right at home as the course is very similar to the ones I play on at home.
As far as the course goes, the course I would say is excellent! I was extremely pleased with the layout, and the length of the course. Overall the course is in great condition from tea boxes to fairways although there were a few greens that had patches of dried out area. But nothing too major. Clubhouse is nice and clean the staff are all very friendly and it looks like they have a great grill For a burger and fries. Although I did not try one I see a lot of people eating them. So just an overall great experience if you’re looking for a great place to golf and a good experience definitely recommend this course

Great day of golf

Couldn’t ask for a better day and course was in really nice shape. This place has some tough greens so they seemed a lot slower than they looked. Grass around green was really tick if you were left or right. Really good test will play again.

The Course needs work.

I’ play this course a couple of times a year and for the past 3 years the course conditions have been declining. While the winter can be a factor other courses face the same problems. Yet, this course what I’ve experience has done very little to improve the conditions. The staff is friendly but separate issue from the course. I hope they make improvements very soon -

Superb Golf Course

It’s always a treat to drive to Faribault and play this great golf course. Excellent staff makes sure that you are taken care of. I love the layout beautiful fairways and excellent fast greens. I played the old nine hole course growing up and what the ground crew have done is simply amazing. By far one of the best golf courses in southern Mn.

Great South Metro Course

One of my favorite south metro area golf courses. Always in good shape and playable holes makes for an enjoyable day. Play it more often now that it's part of the Public Country Club program. Try it, you'll like it.

Legacy Golf

Great price, good early season course conditions, and helpful staff. Starter was awesome, played 18 holes in 3.0 hours. Great weekend pace on a beautiful sunny 76° day!

Love the course!

I really enjoy playing at the Legacy. The staff is very courteous and the course is always in very good shape. It is a very good way to get exercise and relieve stress. I moved here from Ausin, TX in March 2016. The only complaint I have is that the winters up here don't allow me to play almost year round as I did in Texas. Golfers in the area are very fortunate to have Legacy golf.

Is there a ranger anywhere

This is the third time being there and no one out checking pace of play. Take a shot, wait, wait wait...

People need to learn how to pickup the pace or get out of the way.

And don't tell the staff, they could care less. Learned that quickly. Went because it was 14 bucks, won't go again unless it is 4am ...
