Detailed description of Legacy Hills Golf Club

Laporte Country Club. Elks Golf Course, Beacon Hills Golf Club

Legacy Hills Golf Club is a Public, 18 hole golf course located in La Porte, Indiana .

Legacy Hills Golf Club first opened for play in 1904 as the Laporte Country Club. a 6 hole course laid out by L. Auchter Torris. In 1940 the course was purchased by the local Elks Club and was known as The Elks Golf Course. In 1980, upon the dissolution of the Laporte Elks Club, the then-named Elks Golf Course came under new ownership and was renamed Beacon Hills Golf Club. The course was purchased by the investment group Beacon Hills Golf Club, Inc. along with a considerable amount of land across the street. The land across the street was used to expand the course to 18 holes. The new back nine was designed by Ernest Schrock and opened for play in 2006. The 18-hole course is now named Legacy Hills Golf Club.

The two nines are different from one another. The front nine is well established with mature trees, a park like feel, and a very good challenge. The back nine has a very different wide open look.

Tournament (blue) tees - 6,600 yards

Men's (white) tees - 6,100 yards

Senior (green) tees - 5,600 yards

Traveling through this area and was told about this "Reborn" 1904 six (6) hole CC golf course into the busy Public redesigned 2006 eighteen (18) track it is today. I only had time for nine (9) holes so they put me with a local twosome of Bob and Rich. (Great retired guys)

We decided to play the Whites at 3,173/2,829yds / 69.2 / 123 on this scattered tree, rolling landscape Front 9 with great full fairway green grass from tee to green Par 37/35 layout. The greens seem to be on the larger size with good sand in the traps to explode onto the 8-9 rolling carpet. Starting out with a narrow rolling 340yd was a friendly way to an easy Par. The #2 Par 4 at 373yds brought the scattered trees in a little tighter to challenge each shot. The #3 Par 5 at 458yds had me hitting my 3wood off the tee for center-cut placement so I could hit it again and be assured of staying between the trees to set up an easy approach shot. The #5 is another short 478yd Par 5 but has a dogleg tee shot to the elevated green. The #6 Par 4 at 369yds is their Hcp 1 hole because of being narrow and elevated green with rejection if you miss your landing area. The #8 is the 3rd Par 5 at 511yds Hcp 3 because it snakes its narrow way from the tee box to the protected green. The #9 is a Par 3 for the finish but 241yds down to 176yds is anything but a friendly finish to your Front 9 for an easy score.

Really enjoy playing with local regulars as they talk about the many changes here......and for the good. Ended up shooting 40 w/16 putts and look forward to returning to give the challenging "Shorter" Back 9 a try.

Would travel: 20-30 Miles, Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again, Better than average course for the area, Bargain priced based on quality and competitive area pricing, Fair priced based on quality and competitive area pricing
