Rating 73.4

Golf architect Arthur Hills designed the Legendary Run, an affordable facility that offers country club-caliber golf in spic-and-span surroundings and with what management calls "the friendliest service in the world." Scottish links golf courses inspired the front nine of the golf course, which sits on 200 acres of land and features six lakes, and holes are named accordingly: Troon, St. Andrews and Turnberry, for some examples. It's a different story on the back nine, which weaves through woods and was influenced by holes closer to home, such as those found at Augusta, Winged Foot and Shinnecock.

Book two weeks in advance to ensure you get on for a round on the Legendary Run golf course, and leave your metal spikes at home - there's no reason to worry, as, conditions permitting, you can take your golf cart off the path if necessary. A far cry from Cincinnati's recreational golf courses, this one requires a collared shirt (mock, if you must) and non-denim pants (shorts work, too). The pro shop will dress you if need be.

A bonus for eco-thinking golfers: The Legendary Run counts itself among the members of the Audubon Sanctuary Program and enforces respect of the natural habitat.

Beautiful course

Really enjoyed the layout... pretty open course with some interesting holes.... links style course with some reachable par 5’s.... very fast, but true greens... plush fairways and tee boxes... will definitely be going back... there’s also a nice driving range on site to warm up before heading out

Fun Course!

Course design was a lot of fun. Course was in great condition especially considering the fact it was early January. Fun to play a course with all kinds of elevation and dog legs. Would recommend to anyone!

Worth a google

Played in January but the curse was in decent shape anyway. They are working on the layout. Can’t wait to see it in the spring.

"Legendary" Conditions

Course was in great shape. Fairways and greens were in excellent condition and had not yet been subjected to aeration or top-dressing for the end of the season.

Way overpriced

Course layout is great the condition is not worth what they charge you. Just played a six hour round Marshall’s do little to nothing to hurry slow groups and they overbook tee times. The vineyard and elks run nearby much more bang for your buck

Greens and Grunge

I love Legendary Run and play it frequently every year. They have had some problems with their greens this season - not sure if it's a fungus or what but some were in pretty poor condition. Otherwise well maintained.

Best in the area!

If you are in the Cincinnati are, you need to make it out to this course. Challenging but fair and in excellent condition. #5 is one of the most difficult holes in Cincinnati but still really fun. I highly recommend playing 18 if you can since the two nines are completely different styles. The staff is top notch and the restaurant has some great selections.
