Legacy Golf Resort, The6808 S 32nd St
Phoenix, AZ 85040
Designed by Gary Panks, The Legacy's lush green fairways, forgiving rough, well-placed hazards, and manicured greens offer a challenge for golfers of all skill levels. The fairways are rolling and surrounded by indigenous grasses, flowers, shrubs and trees. The course elevation provides exceptional views of Camelback Mountain, Squaw Peak and the Phoenix skyline. Site of the 2000 LPGA Standard Register Ping tournament, The Legacy Golf Resort is the former setting of the 7,500-acre Dwight B. Heard ranch. The resort has preserved many of the ranch's remaining structures and monuments throughout the course - giving golfers an added opportunity to experience a taste of Arizona history. The course signature hole is #15, a 165 yard par 3 that requires a careful shot over a sizeable water hazard and several well placed bunkers in order to reach an elevated green. The resort also features a heated swimming pool with pool-side bar and whirlpool, tennis courts, sand volleyball, shuffleboard, children's playground and pool, complete fitness center with massage therapy, and hiking trails nearby.

Scenic and forgiving course, May 14, 2005
from Scottsdale, AZ USA
|The Legacy is a solid resort course - tough enough to interest low handicappers, yet forgiving enough not to scare off hackers (aka - tourists - the financial lifeblood of resorts). The fairways are wide and open. The course description (see above) describes the rough as "forgiving". That understates it in a big way. The 'rough' is almost non-existent, as the cut in most areas of rough is as tight as the fairway cut on other courses. If you keep your ball on the course and out of the sand, you will have a playable lie. The sand, however, is what makes the course a little tougher. The par-3s are usually surrounded by bunkers, and the par-4s and -5s seem to have a bunker right where you would place a good tee shot. There is a large practice area, and a moderately sized (though not moderately priced) pro shop and restaurant. The pro shop's stock is light on equipment and heavy on apparel and knick knacks. The staff was friendly, knowledgeable, and efficient. Overall, a solid, if expensive, golfing experience, very suitable for visitors to the Phoenix area, or for locals looking for a treat.|
