    The course was good, they did have problems on some of the greens and the course in general was not marked that well.
    Pete() 6/1/2017
    Best of the three..have played this course before and enjoyed it more each time..great value with the lunch and breakfast included..this was a nice extra..course was in great shape even with the lack of rain..
    Steve() 5/18/2017
    Very nice experience - golf course was in good shape - anything on the menu breakfast and lunch.
    Robert(Pittsburgh PA) 4/6/2017
    Very nice course. Challenging for average golfers. Staff was outstanding, friendly and very accommodating. Nice to have the lunch and drinks included. Would recommend and play again.
    Raymond(Canada) 3/24/2017
    We always like playing Legacy because it is always so well maintained. This year was doubly special because they offered free replays. Excellent value for our golfing dollar.
    Cindy (Ann Arbor) 3/24/2017
    Beautiful course and community. Would go back again.
    Tom(N.C.) 2/4/2017
    We play every year. Challenging but fun to play. Conditions have suffered over the last couple of years but this year I see a little comeback. Still in very good shape.
    Bill(Simsbury, CT) 2/3/2017
    Fun course with too many distinctive holes to mention - wish they hadn't switched the front and back nines. Best feature is cart girl Diana - not only is she delightful, but we saw her every four holes - I don't know how she does it!
    Robert(Cumberland, RI) 2/2/2017
    Course is beautiful and challenging. Only complaint is the ranger was sullen and overbearing. Clubhouse staff very pleasant.
    I can't wait to play this course again
    Great deal with them including breakfast and dinner!
    James(NY) 12/16/2016
    It was cold outside. Played one tee box up and was the most challenging course of the week. The back nine was very challenging and scenic. Another course I would highly recommend. Bring some extra balls, the water comes into play on 14 holes...The staff was awesome and helpful.
    Bill(Simsbury, CT) 11/22/2016
    Great course, too many terrific holes to mention, and the best cart girl (Diana) in Florida. Too bad they switched the front and back nines, however.
    There was a lot of eating time on the tee box waiting for the group in front of us to finish each hole. The free breakfast, lunch and two beverages was nice and unexpected.
    John(England) 11/10/2016
    Played many times, but have never seen the greens in anything like this condition. Grass unbelievably long, and soaked more than once with the sprinklers unexpectedly coming on...
    Denzil a Sequeira(Bonita Springs) 11/4/2016
    Quite a nice course and friendly.
    Robert() 10/31/2016
    Great layout. Hope new management can Improve conditions to make it arrest course.
    (Naples, Fl.) 10/31/2016
    Course was not well maintained. Greens were in need of repair. Staff was not at all helpful. Not the best experience,
    Kyle(Cape Coral, Fl ) 8/12/2016
    Course layout was nice. Challenging but fair. Conditions a little on the bad side. Would play again if the maintenance crew would learn how to do there job.
    Jack() 5/12/2016
    The practice range was in terrible shape. I would rate the condition of the golf course a 3 out of 10. The greens had several different types of weeds and there were numerous bare patches.
    Kevin(New Bedford ,Ma) 4/11/2016
    A challenging layout, but tees and greens were in mediocre condition. Got a lunch with two beverages with green fee
    SHAWN COELHO(WARREN - RI) 3/21/2016
    Not sure if I would play this one again.
    Bill(Simsbury, CT) 2/12/2016
    Great course - lots of memorable holes. Well kept, well run. They just switched the front and back nines to speed up play, which is too bad because the old finishing holes are terrific. It was cart path only that day due to all the rain, so it was a slow round. Great cart girl made it more enjoyable.
    Reb(Atlanta, GA) 2/4/2016
    Challenging, yet fun course.
    () 12/24/2015
    Average course, come condition issues.
    Paul(Toronto Canada) 12/7/2015
    good course aliitle far from where we stayed 57 miles we got there at 9 due to traffic they saidvour t time was 8-45 a liitle rude about it then marsalls we pushing us thru first nine because they had a tounament starting
    Paul(Toronto Canada) 12/5/2015
    Excellent course, good condition.
    Gottfried() 12/3/2015
    Definitely worth playing. Enjoyed it a lot.
    William(Simsbury, CT) 11/19/2015
    Our favorite! Great course with many distinctive holes. Well kept with a great cart girl. We must have seen her five times. 19th hole closes up early though.
    Douglas() 5/28/2015
    Play this course every year. Wide fairways and conditions good. Friendly staff..
    Brad(Lakewood Ranch, Fl) 4/23/2015
    Great course layout
    We arrive very early for our tee time at this course because we were not sure about traffic. They were very accommodating and got us early and we ended up playing by ourselves, which was very nice for our first day of the trip. They also made special arrangements for our replay that afternoon, and once again we were able to play by ourselves. We would definately play this course again.
    We play with a couple that were members and they were very helpful with the course and very friendly. The course offere just the right amount of challenges, but could have been in better condition, mabe because of the time of year or weather. Staff were all very friendly and helpful. We would include the course on our next trip to the area.
    Barry(Birmingham MI) 4/1/2015
    Nice course
    Dan() 3/25/2015
    Nice course.
    Chris(Arlington Virginia) 3/19/2015
    Wonderful layout, good service and pace of play. Course conditions were very good. We play here every year, and will do so again.
    William(Indianapolis, IN) 2/19/2015
    Excellent, friendly staff and best warmup facilities. Nice place
    Bill (Simsbury, CT) 2/7/2015
    Our favorite course - great shape, very interesting and just challenging enough. Best cart girl in the state.
    Andrea(Woodcliff Lake , NJ) 2/5/2015
    We liked the course very much.
    Ken(Clarkston, MI) 1/31/2015
    This used to be one of the nicest most manicured courses around. What happened??? I guess again a private club built onsite has taken away from taking care of this course. Too bad as this course has a lot of character and does not deserve to be neglected like it has. I talked to a person who lives in this community and he told me the course is 3 stars at best and I agree. How do you get 4.5 stars for this course? Who is rating these courses? Must be misprints galore on this website for golf course ratings. Do not let the pictures for these courses fool you.
    Kun(Lake Forest, IL) 1/30/2015
    Very good course. Would recommend to anyone. Fast green and good layout.
    We were very pleased with this course. The staff was very friendly too
    John(Prospect, KY) 12/4/2014
    Have played this course several times and each time we love it.
    course layout is fantastic ... greens were in "ok" condition, some tee-boxes were in poor shape ... a few tee-boxes were built at low points, so after rains they were badly soaked
    Kevin(Burlington - ON CANADA) 3/6/2014
    Great course. No complaints
    Gary(Niagara Falls - NY) 3/2/2014
    Any course with Arnold Palmer's name associated to it has to be top notch. The Legacy is!
    Brad(Downers Grove - IL) 3/1/2014
    Enjoyed the layout. Tough starting holes and can be areal challenge in the wind. Play it! Nice practice area andfacilities
    Bill(Simsbury - CT) 2/13/2014
    Fantastic. This course is our favorite. Too many interesting holes to list them all - but three - four and nine over water - eleven's sand - and the finishing holes are especially strong. Lots of gators - including one that I think ate my Titleist in
    Tom(Fuquay Varina - NC) 2/4/2014
    Great course. We play Legacy every year. Always in good condition - fun to play and challenging.
    Dario() 1/15/2014
    Lovely course in good shape. Liked it a lot. Also very well organized by Tee Times USA. I will book with them again.
    Bill(Sandwich - MA) 1/15/2014
    Our favorite. Too many memorable holes to mention and great service. Fun 19th hole too. Can't wait to come back.
    Scott(Waunakee - WI) 1/15/2014
    great course
    John(Prospect - KY) 1/15/2014
    Legacy is on our must play list when in the area. The folks at the clubhouse and on the course [especially the starter] make your day at Legacy special. I would actually play the course twice in one week if there weren't so many good course to play. Alway
    Brad(Downers Grove - IL) 5/10/2013
    Best layout and course we played.
    Name Not Given(St. John'S - NL CANADA .) 3/8/2013
    Good playing conditions and a challenging layout.
    Robert(Exeter - NH) 2/22/2013
    Have played before. Extremely enjoyable and a bargaingiven the layout and the condition. Will definitely keep thiscourse in the rotation for future trips.
    Mike(Potomac - MD) 1/27/2013
    Nice track. Part of our annual rotation. Greens rollgreat and the staff is freindly.
    Alex(Toronto - ON CANADA) 1/14/2013
    Of the 9 courses we played on our trip this was byfar the best. Strong winds and lots of water and waste areas madeit a real challenge. Course conditions were excellent.
    Brent(Victoria - NL CANADA) 10/19/2012
    Nice course - would play again.
    BAWA JAGGI(NORTH WALES - PA) 10/9/2012
    great course. the best on my trip. not enough cart person stops through my round. clubhouse is not as good as it was 5 years ago. but, the beauty in the course made up for the other short commings.
    Edward(Blainville - QC CANADA) 4/19/2012
    Tough course - bring lots of balls if you are a 14hdcp or more. Lay up and fly high into the green.
    Christian(2680 - DENMARK) 4/13/2012
    Very good course.
    Roger(Independence - OH) 4/7/2012
    Also one of our favorites. Its in great condition and challenging. Definitely a repeat for next year.
    Frank(Grasonville - MD) 3/30/2012
    Great course try it you will like it.
    T from Kentucky(St. John'S - NL CANADA) 3/29/2012
    Really enjoyed this course. Will probably play this one again when we return next year.
    Laura(St. John'S - NL CANADA) 3/9/2012
    Treated us like real guests. The staff was very friendly - changed our tee time so that we could play as a couple without being paired up. The course was lovely. Look forward to playing that course again.
    Mike(Potomac - MD) 1/29/2012
    Very nice track for January. Greens were very fast and rolled true. All the personnel were very friendly. It was nice to have free range balls. Need to bring your own GPS device - need it to help out with hazards.
    Allan(Gatineau - QC CANADA) 12/4/2011
    Group of 8 from the Ottawa region who year after year come to the Sarasota area and never miss playing this excellent course. Always a pleasure and most certainly recommended for those looking for a stop in that area.

    Bill(Simsbury - CT) 11/18/2011
    Nice course. Well kept - interesting and playable. Pro shop staff very helpful. Only complaint is that they should have had a ranger out to speed up slow players in front of us.
    Barry(St Johns - NL CANADA) 10/11/2011
    beautiful course. Excellent time
    Excellent and fair
    great golf

    MIGUEL LASAGA(MIAMI - FL) 5/5/2010
    Nice course. Great service. Really nice track. Recommended.
    We love the Legacy. We always play this course on Saturday and Sunday because we know it will provide a great ending to the trip.
    We always finish our last 2 days at Legacy. We love the course and it has become our home away from home.
    ROBERT ANGEL(ST JOHN'S - NL) 3/17/2008
    Tough course for my skill level. Lots of water.
    We love it!
    LARRY DODDS(BEAVER - PA) 2/12/2007
    Super fine in conditions and layout.
