A private course feel

It starts with your friendly greeting in the pro shop. A wonderful pizza lunch before the round, and I really mean a wonderful pizza. They have a great pizza oven that makes a perfect 14 inch pizza. The course is in good condition and offers all the challenge you want to take on. After quite a rainy spell the course was firm and very playable. Conditions are variable in FL for a variety of reasons and this course was good for coming out of Summer maintenance.

An Old Nemesis

Dang course bit me again … gotta be straight or you’re in trouble.
Greens were “punched” recently but still rolled ok … carts have GPS & music … Not busy this time of year so it’s quiet & affordable.

Legacy is OK

Course layout is only OK in my opinion.. lots of kinda funky holes but not bad. I’d prefer to play some of the other courses in the Lakewood ranch area but it’s ok. Course conditions are good except for the punched greens. No notice on Golf now and only found out when we was checking in. Atleast they told us and gave us a free drink coupon but I would have rather played a different course if I knew but that’s why it’s usually a surprise. Lol. Practice area and everything is ok but I won’t probably play again and would rather play other courses in that area. There’s a ton of them

Very Solid Course

If you have never played here before, you should. Usually the course is in great condition. Greens are usually rolling around 10-11 on stimpmeter. I feel, its a really good mix between hard holes and easy ones. From the tips this course will give you all the challenge you want. I play a lot of golf down here and Im never disappointed when the boys want to to Legacy. If there is a con, maybe the greens fees could be lower but higher prices is the new reality we live in.

Good conditioning

From tee to Green, the course is in good shape. The champions Bermuda greens were phenomenal, rolling pure, and quick. Tip for future players, stay below the hole or you are guaranteed a 3-putt.

Good for the Right Price

Course layout was very fun and definitely a challenging course, but this would never be worth $135 to play. Course was in decent shape but they have an irrigation problem. It seemed to rain a few days before which caused the whole course to be a swamp land. Ever step was wet. There was also a terrible smell on a few holes near the sand/water. The cart path only didn’t make it the most enjoyable. If you are able to get the right price, $55 or under, it’s worth playing.
