Located in the west valley, the Legend at Arrowhead Golf Club is an Arnold Palmer/Ed Seay-designed golf course with a traditional layout. The challenging course has six lakes creating water hazards on many of the holes and several doglegs. The difficult to read greens are undulating and in excellent condition. Each hole, except for one, has bunkering on the fairways or protecting the greens. Legend at Arrowhead Golf Club's signature hole is the par-4, 426-yard fifth hole. It calls for a shot off an elevated tee with water running along the right side of the fairway as well as next to the green.

Needs Help

I do like the layout of this course but it needs help. Course conditions are rough. Hopefully someone besides Arcis can take this over and make it better like it used to be!

Greens were rough

Layout was nice winding thru neighborhood. Bunkers were hard scrabble. Greens were in bad shape. My tee time was changed without notification. Electric carts were in bad shape. Will not play there again.

Zero sand in any bunkers and greens a mess

Usually when we play here in summer, fairways are parched and greens are awesome. Not so now. No sand in ANY bunker on the whole course. No water buckets either, only 1 fountain per 9 holes. No drink cart, makes it tough when it's this hot. Greens were dead in parts and bumpy and bad in others. We used to love this course due to set up. Now it seems that they just don't care anymore. Will be a while till we come back.

Love the course convenient to my house. However, the greens were rough and the flag placement was puzzling. The flags were placed in areas were the greens seemingly were in the worst shape. Overall challenging course and would play again.

Beach at Legends

the course is good but for some reason there is no sand in the bunkers. I have played it off and on for three years, they keep saying there is going to be sand but nothing yet.

Course in rough shape

Greens have two different types of grass and there are lots of bald patches. Made for some interesting putting.

Fairways are pretty patchy. The Rough is pretty much dirt at this point. Sand traps are in terrible condition and there were multiple greenside bunkers that were full of water and moss.

There was no water in the water stations throughout the course. There was no beverage cart, so bring anything that you plan on eating or drinking.

Many of the patrons are rude and/or inconsiderate.

It is decent for the money, basically a muni course. I'd rather pay the extra $10 to hit a nicer course with better amenities. Probably won't play here again any time soon.

Fun Fun Fun

Starting with Rick in pro shop, couldn't have felt more welcome...tees and fairways were well maintained, and often lush despite several days over 110*...greens were also lush...too much so, however...weather dictates they allow grass to grow or else greens would fry, so once we adjusted to lack of speed, we did better. The only real complaint is the thin, sand-based grass on the practice range... that said, practice balls extremely reasonable, and fairly decent for the price. All-in-all a fun track and time well spent.

Brutally Slow Play

Had to quit round at the 17th tee. Group playing in front of us was painfully slow and not a Marshall in sight. We were already 4.5 hours and felt it could take another hour. As we passed the group in front of us we discovered another group putting out. As we approached the 18th tee, a group had just tee’d off and there was an additional group waiting to tee off. As we made our way down 18 a 3rd group were hitting their approach shots. 3 groups on one hole, not good. It appears the tee time spacing isn’t managed well nor does the golf club care about pace of play.

9 holes in the morning

I thought the course was the best I've seen in years. Too many times they have had no burmuda grass in the summer. Almost like it was 20 years ago. Bunkers are a different story..

Great first time

As a less experienced golfer, I found the course to be a great experience. However the group we were paired with does golf there quite often and states that the sand traps are rock hard. They started to clear out some trees and foliage to help speed up pace of play. They can update the course to be one of the best in the valley, however they are always busy so it’s hard to do big refinishes on the course.

Course is going downhill...

Played here 6 years ago before. I like the course design, but come on. Course condition is just neglected. No sand in the Bunkers. Maintenance of the course is reduced to just mowing. Range has no grass left for practice... Lots of potential but looks like the management doesn't care anymore.
