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.

Good layout, greens were brutal

The greens have poa annua patches everywhere which really affects the consistency. There was a ton of ballmarks, greens overall were in very poor condition. Overall not worth the price, much better value out there.

Nice layout but way overpriced.

For $287 you would think they would give you a couple of waters in the cooler. They do give you ice but no water. The course has a nice layout. Homes are a little too close for me and some fairways areas and green areas were sketchy but maintained otherwise. We played in 4 hours and 5 min and did not see anyone behind us for the whole round yet we were scolded by the ranger for playing too slow. Just odd. We had a good time and would consider playing there again. If I could not get a time at some of the similarly priced tracks.

Really nice

Two of us teed off early afternoon and didn't see anyone in front of us or behind the entire round. Course was in good shape and the weather was perfect so we had a great time. The bunkers have great, light sand which is not the case for most courses these days. I like the course layout and think this is one of the best values.

Never disappoints

Great course layout. Challenging picturesque tee boxes for the men and friendly tee boxes for the women make this a great experience. The course is very fair and was in great shape. Highly recommended.

Legend Trail after overseed

Course in decent shape after overseed. Greens were very slow, but likely protecting them from heat.

Greens were the only negative

Greens were still exceptionally slow and a little beat up. Would expect a bit more for a $300 round. Outside of this, the course was fun, and well maintained in all other areas.

After overseed

Course is in great condition. The grass is a little long kind of expected after overseed. Staff was very friendly.
