The Legacy at Hastings is the new name here but the conditions are still Country Club quality. The new scorecard has four (4) new yardages from Blacks at 6,423/71.4/128 down to Reds at 4,600/67.1/113 on this hilly Par 36/37 layout. With the clubhouse located on the highest point you’ll have a great view of this vast rolling layout. I decided to walk and play the Blacks for $25....a choice I would later regret. The most wide open holes are #1 393yd Par 4 and the return #2 477yd Par 5, so enjoy. The #3 is a straight away 354yd Par 4 with two (2) huge mounds at 150yds blocking view of green. Number 4 is a steep downhill 171yd shot to a nice large and soft green. The #5 a 392yd Par 4 has a narrow tree chute shot to a soft fairway leading to a raised green. The #6 is a 456yd Par 5 Hcp 2 dogleg left with a blind tee landing area. If you hit the top of the hill by the Red tee box (200yd) you’ll roll down to 210yd marker, with a 20’ raised green awaiting your arrival. The #7 301yd straight away Par 4 with good landing area to hit your approach shot to the large green. Number 8 an 222yd downhill Par 3 has a trees/swamp located on the LH side so miss short front. The #9 a straight away 337yd Par 4 that starts out elevated, down to fairway and back up to a elevated green. The Back 9 #10 458yd Par 4 is same layout as #9, but longer for its Hcp 1 ranking. The straight away #11 a 528yd Par 5 has a steep raised front protecting the green against those under club shots. The #12 a 385yd Par 4 has a 20’ raised green location with no view of depth from fairway. The Par 3 at #13 has you hitting downhill 138yds with LH side protected by a swamp. After a steep climb to #14 tee box a 338yd Par 4 that had a downhill shot to a pond 230yds away, with a flat area leaving 150yd shot. The #15 has a large hill that needs 200yd carry to top flat area on this 396yd Par 4. The #16 423yd Par 4 is a Hcp 3 ranking and has a big hill 50yds from green leading up to the raised green. The #17 a 474yd straight away Par 5 leaves your 3rd shot to a steep faced raised green that rejects short shots. Saving the best for last is #18 a 180yd uphill 80’ to a blind green that has you putting your best guess forward on club selection. To say this is a hilly course is a understatement as I walked 7.3 miles/18,371steps/34 floors on this April sunny day. Ended up shooting 40/40 w/32putts and will take a cart next time.
