The recently redone and reopened Legends Course is beautiful in its ambience and well done in its layout. Many holes are challenging. The greens were generally fast and hard and difficult to stick but manageable. The staff were hospitable and most helpful and professional.

Would travel: 30-60 Miles, Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again, Better than average course for the area, Ranks with the best in this price level

I'm a member so clearly I've made a choice to play here, but both courses here are good tests of golf, which I think is the most important way to rate a course.

Would travel: 30-60 Miles, Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again, Better than average course for the area, Fair priced based on quality and competitive area pricing

I guess tv is deceptive. The fairway were in really bad shape. Now thay are running a special for a $100.00 weekday rate. I've played cheaper courses that were in much better condition. Not worth the hipe!

Would travel: 0-10 Miles, Not Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: Worse than average course for the area
