When the architect Rees Jones created the golf course at the Legend Trail Golf Club, he created a golf course that brings out the Old West-style air of Scottsdale and a fun and testing golf course with greens made of bent grass. It's a premium golf course smack dab in the Sonora Desert.

The golf course at the Legend Trail Golf Club features broad fairways, diminutive bunkering and tees placed on islands, and has been called one of the Top 100 golf courses by Golf Magazine. The magazine also gives Legend Trail 4.5 stars out of five among its

Best Places to Play, and has one of the Top 100 Woman-Friendly Fairways, according to Golf For Women magazine. Panoramas include local sites like Pinnacle Peak, and a round at Legend Trail Golf Club gives all levels of golfer several different shot-making options.

Golf a late-afternoon round on Friday or Saturday, and head back to the Trail's End Grill from 4 to 6 p.m. for specials on drinks and appetizers.

As usual the course was in good shape. The staff was both friendly and helpful. I can't wait until I play the course again.

Great Time

Given the course was in the middle of summer, it was in great shape, great layout, and would recommend playing here. From the staff at the pro shop, to the starter, and even cart girl, they were all wonderful.

Course Not At It’s Best

Summer heat and lack of rain probably has much to do with the lesser conditions presently in play at the course. Tee boxes need some TLC; fairways are rough; greens were fair to good; sand traps full, but many of them wet. Pace of play was excellent, as no one was on the course. Unfortunately, there was no “cart girl” service and the restaurant was closed. If you find a low rate, it is still worth visiting. Note too that the driving range surface was in very poor condition.

Lone Tree Round

Course was ok but did expect a little more for the cost. Tee boxes were good, fairways decent and greens were good with consistent speed. Sand traps were inconsistent, some dry while others were very wet.

Excellent course

Really enjoyed this course, so much so we are playing again in a few days. The back nine has some great driving holes.

We will play here again next time we visit The Phoenix area.

Disappointed by Slow Pace

We started off well, and for 3 holes kept a good pace, but from hole 4 onwards the pace got slower with each hole, so much that by hole 12 there were 3 groups on the same par 3. We were told the course ahead was full with a group on every hole, but that didn’t explain why it slowed down so much, and the wait on every tee seemed to just make everyone’s golf get worse as the round went on. Disappointed.
