“Vegas Hospitality AND Great Golf!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2012

Located just outside the Vegas city limit in Henderson, The Legacy is a short cab ride from the airport or The Strip, and the Par-72 course is absolutely beautiful. Mountain views are visible from almost every hole, and the desert-scape terrain around beautifully-manicured fairways and greens is stunning.

I booked a round with my wife to be the first activity after we got off the plane, and the only hiccup surrounded transportation to/from the course. After an unplanned taxi ride from the airport to the course, the General Manager and Assistant Pro came out to meet us and absolutely rolled out the red carpet. The entire staff is first-rate, from the servers at The Grill to the starters, and even the grounds crew were polite, friendly, and accommodating as they prepped the course for overseeding (the course closes for two weeks at Labor Day to install Rye to get through the cooler months).

The Grill, by the way, has DELICIOUS food and great drinks. Full breakfasts are usually only served on weekends, but continental food and drink is available during the week. On the course there is a refreshment cart with snacks, water, sports drinks, and alcohol.

As for the course, fairways are wide and forgiving, and play is fairly straightforward with few surprises. Off the fairway, you're more likely to find yourself in desert-like sandscape than high grass, helping recovery shots find their mark. Depending on the time of year, you'll get good roll on drives that find the fairway, but depending on your tee selection you could be hitting long irons or woods on your second shots.

White tees play 6211 yards with a 68.8 rating and 123 slope. For the higher-handicapper, move up here and have more fun!
Blue: 6744, 71.3/131. Second shots are at a premium or you'll struggle.
Black: 7233, 74/139. The course is an annual host to the United States Open Qualifying. Play from the Blacks only if you're that good, or want to raise your handicap a few.

One drawback to the course, noted on other sites, is slow play. Tee times are spaced 8 minutes apart, and groups can back up quickly. Try to find a spot where there aren't times booked in front of you, and check with the starter.

The Legacy is part of OB Golf, which manages other courses around Las Vegas including Aliante and Angel Park. Hotel partners include The Orleans and The Palms. Dress code is enforced, and rates vary with season and time of day (e.g. Twilight). Rates include greens fee, range balls, and cart. Great tee times and rates can be found on sites like GolfNow.

“For the price 29$ it was a good deal”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2012

Played Saturday June 9th, 1pm tee time 100 degrees. Pace of play was good at about 4.15 hours, course was rock hard, large patches of burnt and brown greens and fairways. Greens were very fast and difficult to putt due to the burnt out areas. Course looks like it has potential when in good shape.

“Lousy Conditions, slow play, shabbily dressed staff!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2012

If you’re looking to spend a DAY on a golf course with shabbily dressed personnel, texting employees, tipping the starter for someone else's Tee time, an old driving range, demolition derby golf carts, fairways with little or no grass. Greens that are patched and spray painted green. Marshall's that do nothing about the pace of play, no snack window during the week and no restaurant after 5:00, this is the place to golf.
With all of the Beautiful professionally run Golf Courses in Las Vegas and Henderson, NV, I would go to one of them instead I am sure the experience would be more enjoyable!!! And take less time!
Will not go back!!!

“Nice Clubhouse, Excellent Staff, Lousy Conditions, SLOW PLAY & Obnoxious Regulars”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2012

I am giving the golf course a poor rating based on the quality of the course and pace of play. The quality of clubhouse staff however was excellent and I do understand that course condition is entirely out of their hands. The fairways were in poor condition with large patches of bare soil and the greens were rock hard, bumpy and slow. At nearly 6 hours, pace of play was unacceptable with most par 5 hole having 4 groups playing the same hole. It didn’t help the experience being paired with two local club members who played music on their cell phones on the tees, took sales call while putting and felt it was their duty to tell us where to find the best brothels and strip clubs in town. I would not recommend this course giving these conditions and also giving the fact that Las Vegas is full of top quality courses.
