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.

Nice Course

Course was fine but no one in the pro shot to check in. Found James in the grill chatting. Waitress told him we were waiting to check in and another 10 minutes before he showed up. By then there were 3 of us waiting???
It was a hot day but the water on the course was cold and plentiful. Saw the cart person once.
Would recommend the course but you better tee off before the staff moves to slumber mode.

Disappointing

Played here a little over a year ago and came back today last minute. Had good memories of the course but it has turned into a dog track. The greens were the worst I have seen in Arizona this summer. Every single putt we'd have the ball bouncing all over the place. The bunkers are gone, it was essentially like playing out of the desert. There was no mention to us of them being under repair. Seems like they gave up on the course. The staff was very nice and it is a good layout but, unfortunately, it isn't getting the care it needs.
