We got screwed!

Showed up 40 minutes early and were told “Cart path only due to fertilization of fairways.” We couldn’t handle cart path only and the clerk sent us to play Foxfire. Golfnow.com and/or the Lagacy folks charged us as a “no show”!
Now I have to spend an hour trying to get a refund from Golfnow or Legacy!!!! We are really upset!!!

AMAZING COURSE LAYOUT WITH SOME DIFFICULTY AND GREAT CONDITIONS!

This course is amazing to play and is harder than your average golf course. The greens are flawless, although speedy, fun to play and this stays very consistent throughout all 18 holes. Whether you're a beginner or advanced player, it's fun to play (plus some good picture spots in the back nine). The fairways and teeboxes are pretty good although some tiny bare spots and dead grass. Personally, I would say that it could use some improvement because of bare spots and stuff but also in certain areas it is a bit difficult to chip and is easy to dig since the soil is like sand and stuff. Lots of water, great staff, and that's probably about it. Yeah. So great course layout and conditions though fairways could use some work. BTW balls were pretty expensive (not range balls)

Enjoyable Course

We really enjoyed our round at Legacy Golf Links. The greens were in great shape and wicked fast when we played. The pace was great with absolutely no waiting throughout our round. Will definitely play again!

Great conditions and awesome pace of play

I had just finished playing Pinehurst #2 and Pine Needles so this felt like a reprieve of sorts from the turtle back greens yet still challenging. Greens in great shape as was course overall. Can’t beat the price. The pace of play was outstanding this day 4 hrs 15 minutes

Slow Day in Southern Pines

Greens in good shape. Fairways and tees good for the most part , although some areas were poor. Considering mid February, not bad. We have played Legacy 5-6 times over the last few years and generally the pace is slow but not pedestrian. They have a tendency to try and put too many players on the course and while there is a ranger he isn’t usually much help. This round ranked in the top 1 or 2 slowest rounds I have ever played ,at just over 5 hours. Not to mention we started 25 minutes after our scheduled tee time. No excuse for 5 hour round here, but seems to be more frequent if you look at other reviews. I guess they won’t get the message until people stop playing there.
