Now Open: Legends Golf Course

Under the direction of the Champions Course architects, Pascuzzo & Pate Golf Design, all 18 holes on Legends Golf Course were renovated, while maintaining the classic Dick Wilson-Joe Lee design. The multifaceted makeover includes a complete reconstruction and redesign of all 18 greens, as well as a thorough resurfacing of tee complexes, all-new bunkering and the planting of paspalum turfgrass in the fairways.

Legends Course is more spacious than the Champions Course, with a more open look, while providing a complementary set of strategic challenges and a variety of visual encounters.

  • Bentgrass greens to be redesigned and enlarged from average of 3,000 square feet to an average of 5,000 square feet
  • Greens at the first, 12th, 15th and 17th holes to be relocated
  • Every bunker is being redesigned and reconstructed, complete with new drainage and sand (numerous bunkers to be removed)
  • Tees are being rebuilt and reshaped to provide more space
  • Fairways will feature "golfer-friendly" paspalum - a salt-water tolerant grass that provides favorable, cushioned lies - and will be widened

Hole 1

Playing to the right-center, rather than cutting the corner sets up the best angle to carry the creek crossing in front of the green.

Par 4, Read Description

Hole 2

Staying inside the edge of the right fairway bunker is a solid target line. The uphill climb dictates extra carry on the approach.

Par 4, Read Description

Hole 3

This hole is one of the most difficult holes on the course and climbs from the tee to green. Make sure to check the wind when hitting your approach shot.

Par 4/5, Read Description

Hole 4

Playing downhill, the roomy landing area drops into a basin. The elevated green slopes back-to-front.

Par 4, Read Description

Hole 5

The hillside tees sit above an inviting fairway with trouble down the right side. A classic risk reward Par 4 if you decide to carry the bunkers on the right.

Par 4, Read Description

Hole 6

Playing longer than it is listed due to a prevalent crosswind, the tee shot must carry the deep, front bunker blocking the entrance to the green.

Par 3, Read Description

Hole 7

The green is in two-shot range by steering clear of the bunkers. The small green is tucked between bunkers and demands a precise second shot.

Par 5, Read Description

Hole 8

The heavily bunkered and water-guarded green normally plays straight into the wind. Aiming for the left-center is the safest part.

Par 3, Read Description

Hole 9

Though often tough to reach this green in two because of headwinds, the fairway was narrowed. The creek crosses 30 yards out from the wide, shallow green.

Par 5, Read Description

Hole 10

The right side offers a generous landing area, away from the lake. The water will influence the approach to an elevated green guarded by two bunkers.

Par 4/5, Read Description

Hole 11

The green is heavily guarded by bunkers right and left.

Par 3, Read Description

Hole 12

A tee shot to the left center of the fairway will allow you to reach the green in two with best angle on this legendary Par 5.

Par 5, Read Description

Hole 13

Treelines and the corner bunker don't leave a lot of wiggle room off the tee. The two-tier green is accepting.

Par 4, Read Description

Hole 14

The elevated green demands a well-calculated carry, but it is wide and offers room in the back against a hillside.

Par 3, Read Description

Hole 15

The trees on the left block approaches from anywhere left of center or short. It's more carry than it looks up to the green.

Par 4, Read Description

Hole 16

It's long and often faces a breeze, but the fairway is wide and flat to reach the green.

Par 4, Read Description

Hole 17

Keep right-center off the tee and left-center after that since there is negotiating room on the left, away from the lake.

Par 5, Read Description

Hole 18

The crossing creeks should not be an issue, but the elevated green, often playing into a breeze, can be tricky.
