Legacy Golf Club

  1 Reviews

The Legacy Golf Club is an Arthur Hills' design & layout.  Hills, in this golfer's opinion, has always managed to create fun 18-hole tracks to play that still provide the challenge of shot-making.  Legacy is no different.

At TLGC, a golfer needs to be armed with to items in order to score well:  chipping and putting.  TLGC is mostly wide open off the teeing grounds as many holes run parallel; stray drives can wind up as lengthy but open shots to the green.  Hills remedies the easy driving with fescue-laden bunkers.  Trust me!   You'd rather be hitting from the sand than to get into the fescue - it's wirey and almost impossible to extract yourself from the stuff.   The green complexes are large, rolling and fast.  And there are chipping areas all around the greens.

So, you miss a green you'd better be handy with your sand wedge, chipping club and the putter.  Otherwise, you'll be struggling to find par or even bogey because getting it close doesn't always guarantee par.

The practice range is grass and above average.  It's location to the #1 and #10 tees is close so there is no time wasted in prepping before going to the tee areas.  The clubhouse, its halfway house and pro-shop, are nice.  Nothing mind-blowing but they wouldn't be given TLGC's location.  I found it hard to believe there are enough golfing patrons to keep rounds high.  I've heard summertime is golf league season in the area so perhaps its 9-hole rounds followed by beer, brats and card-playing that saves the day.

My recommendation to anyone who enjoys golf is to book at round at The Legacy course.  And do it twice.  My first and only round was played in sort of a confused state.  Due to the "links" look Hills has created, you can get confused about which green you're playing to once you're off the tee.  VERY ENJOYABLE ROUND (06/22).
