Owner description: Legacy is an upscale, 18-hole championship daily fee course, unique from anything found in Southwest Florida. By offering value added, impeccable levels of service and conditioning it appeals to traveling golfers and locals alike.

“This is a waste of money.”
Reviewed March 22, 2014

Twice the cost of many courses I've played. Very poor greens and cosmetically not well manicured. You get the impression that this is a club in financial difficulty. Even the carts are very old and in disrepair and have no GPS system. Probably worth paying no more than $40 at this venue not the $115 you will have to pay. Choose another course eg Misty Creek.

“The guy in the pro shop is a jerk”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

Don't pay for this place. Dan is a jerk and was very disrespectful to a 90 year old man.. And he was very confrontational. If I knew who owned it the course, I would contact them. He doesn't deserve a job.

“Probably the most unhelpful club anywhere”
Reviewed March 1, 2014

I spoke to the the most unhelpful individual in the golf shop. I asked if there were any tee times available for that afternoon around 1.30pm. Said he had a 1.56pm but would have to play with another 2 ball. I asked if I could play the 1.30 on my own. ' and will you pay for the other 3 slots ' was the idiotic reply I got. Fair enough if there is a no 1 ball policy, but quit the smart idiotic reply.

“No service”
Reviewed January 14, 2014

We played 5 courses in 5 days - this one was the most expensive and was the worst. No service at the bag drop, one cart had bad brakes, one cart ran out of battery charge, cart staff guy was just plain rude. When you pay top price you expect good service....also played University Park, Legacy and IMG. Would play all those again but would not come back here based on our experience. Plenty of great courses in this area with first rate service and conditions.

“Poor value”
Reviewed October 28, 2013

Having played this course when it first opened 17 years ago we were really looking forward to returning and playing again.unfortunately the course was in a very poor condition ,the greens were full of large holes and the fairways very scruffy and untidy.
On completing our round and after paying the full rate we complained to the club pro about the condition but he was really not interested.
I would certainly not recommend anyone going to play here,we also played University Park and Stonneybrook they were in fantastic condition,with much friendlier staff and with a far cheaper rate.
