Legacy Golf Club sits on 28 acres of Dwight B. Heard's turn-of-the-20th-century ranch, home to 1902 silos that decorate the 18th fairway - once the tallest manmade things in Maricopa County. More history is on the first tee, in the Sierra Vista House which counts among its early-1900s visitors Theodore Roosevelt and Pancho Villa.

Gary Panks designed the golf course at the Legacy Golf Club, giving it lush fairways, strategic hazards and manicured greens to test all golfers. Native flora grows from the landscape, and the club's elevation offers a vista of Camelback Mountain, Squaw Peak and the skyline of Phoenix.

Great course

Awesome bang for your buck course in the Phoenix area. Course was in great shape, fairways and greens were perfect. Staff was super friendly. Starter is a great guy. Course is pretty easy if you stay out of the bunkers, rough is short grass, just burnt/dormant so you can get good lies pretty much anywhere. Some of the green complexes were pretty cool.

Excellent course for the money. Wide generous fairways, and good target lines. Greens rolled very well but speed seemed to change throughout the day. Started out quick and gradually seemed to slow on the back nine. Bunkers, especially the fairway bunkers are extremely penal. Very deep.

Nice course

Pace of play a little slow 4-1/2 hrs, but to be expected,. Fairways & traps were good, greens were nice, running at about 10-1/2. Enjoy the layout playing it again in 2 days

Great course, plan on spending all day

Course was great. Well taken care of and challenging lay out. Place of play was slower than any course I’ve ever played. We had to quit because it was taking so long. Cannot really describe how slow it was on the back nine other than after an hour and a half we had only completed 3 holes. If you don’t have all day to play 18 holes look elsewhere.

Worth Going

Played from the tips, the course is fair but challenging. Greens had some rough patching but overall from the tees to the green the course was in outstanding shape. Avoid the bunkers. Would absolutely play it again.

Excellent Course and Value for the Money

Beautiful course. Great design and layout. Challenging but still manageable. Top notch practice facilities. Not as pricey as some of the other courses in the area but just as nice. Would highly recommend. Lives up to the reputation as one of the better public courses in the area.
