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.

Unless you never hit an errant shot……..

The course was in great condition having just reopened after overseeding. The pace of play was good. The starter was fantastic in providing an overview and tips for the course (so extensive that I couldn’t remember all of the hints).
However, because the course designer chose to feature the desert and unique challenges on most holes, this round was not enjoyable for myself an my eye wife vacationing here from a northern state and only 20+ handicappers. So unless you have very consistent distance and direction control (both are required here), bring lots of extra balls and a very resilient attitude.

Nice but tight

Just played this course for the first time. Highly recommended by some friends. It’s a decent track but quite skinny in places, and many of the holes require a hefty carry over desert bushes. The back nine is more fun (and challenging) than the front. Nothing particularly wrong with the course, but it’s a bit overpriced in comparison to some of the other equally nice courses in the area, like Dove Valley Ranch or Rancho Manana.

Worth the trip

It’s an hour from Gold Canyon but I really enjoyed the course. Take someone along who’s been there before. We had a 1:15 and it took five hours but the course was in nice shape. Good warm up practice area.

Don't Waste Your Time or Money

Some of us have lives that we actually enjoy. I get it, a lot of golfers don't mind wasting 8 hours to play 18 holes but this was ridiculous. I went in to the clubhouse after the front 9 took more than 2 1/2 hours and the staff didn't even entertain a discussion about a 9 hole rain check. Then, when I called the clubhouse about slow play, they seemed pretty annoyed that I even called. Unless you live within 10 minutes of this course, don't bother.

Monsoon rain has really helped

This is a difficult and unforgiving course with desert on both sides of the fairways and greens. Bring your A game, or several extra sleeves of balls.
The course is much greener since the last time I played in July. Overall it was enjoyable and I only lost a couple of balls..

Very nice course

This was our first time play this course , and we were pleasantly surprised how nice it was . The fairways were well maintained and the greens rolled as they should . The course is also very scenic, with a mountain/desert feel . This is a course we will play again .
