The Legacy Golf Course is one of Robertson County's must-play courses. Opened in 1996, it is not as old as some other courses in the area but the designer, Raymond Floyd, took advantage of the existing mature woodlands spread throughout the lush, rolling hills. At 6,755 yards, the course is seemingly short but it is narrow, and be prepared to face troublesome hazards almost everywhere. It is notorious for making balls from even the most slightly errant shots disappear. It is a tough but fair challenge. The golf course starts with a tricky par 5 with a bunker on the right followed by a par 4 that requires a 200-yard carry or you'll surely be faced with trouble. The back nine at Legacy G.C. is slightly less difficult but there are still plenty of hazards as well as several blind shots.

Very Nice Course at a Reasonable Price

My son and I played The Legacy on August 8 and were very happy with the course, which was in very good condition. If I were to make one suggestion it would be to allow the greens to firm up a little. It was hot that day, and they had been watered just before we played, so they were pretty soft.

The staff in the pro shop and snack bar were excellent as well.

Enjoyable round of golf

Great layout. Course was in very good shape. Greens are quick but true. Only complaint is that the staff should hand out divot repair tools and teach people how to use them. I probably fixed 100 ball marks that other people just walked away from.

Beautiful and Well Maintained

Tee boxes, fairways ,and greens were all in terrific condition. Not terribly difficult layout, but greens had great undulations making speed and reads extremely important. Would definitely play here again given the opportunity.

Definitely a place we will be back. The staff was great, played 18 holes in 3-1/2 hours, and we loved it!!! Just bring your range finder because I didn’t see any yardages on sprinkler heads.

Hot Round

Teed off at 1pm on 7/4/22 and it was already warm. The course was in great shape even though we can’t get any rain in this part of the world. We had no pace issues. My only complaint, is that the cart girl who I saw twice on the front nine never came back around the entire back nine. Maybe she’d left already but it was 104° heat index and there are no water stations. Next time I’ll bring a bigger water bottle !

Beautiful course, great value!

The Legacy is the best value in the area. Fairways and greens are perfect even though it has been dry in middle TN lately. Great driving range and the price is in line. We enjoyed our round and I would definitely recommend the course to anyone looking for a fun and challenging round of golf.

Rain Rain Come This Way!

First let me say I love this course. It’s playable, but challenging, and is usually my favorite course in the area to play. I have not played here in quite some time because rates have increased as has the amount of play they get, so for cost and time purposes I haven’t been here in quite some time.

We have had a very dry June and it really showed here. The course was browned out in the fairways and tee boxes. On some tee boxes it was very difficult to get a tee in the ground. The fairways were hard as a rock and it became tiresome hitting off thin, bare lies. Again, it’s been very very dry, but it did not seem as though any water had been put on fairways or tees.

The greens were in very good shape; and rolled very true and were not at all burned out. Very encouraging that they haven’t lost the greens and made us think that if we can get some rain the course will be back in shape shortly.

Right now I wouldn’t be in a hurry to pay the course, BUT after we get some rain and the course greens back up this is one of the best courses in Middle Tennessee.

This place is my nemesis (in a good way)

I can just never seem to play well here and it's not the courses fault. The pin placement is always very tough but I'm not going to knock the course for that. I had like 5 pars and 7 triples so it was just one erratic day. I will be back and hopefully keep my ball in play but I do enjoy the toughness of this track.
