Click Graphic For Vegas
Just minutes from the Las Vegas Strip in Henderson (Green Valley) is The Legacy Golf Club. From your entrance to the modern-day club house, or the professional greeting and amenities provided by the warm and hospitable staff, to your round of exhilarating golf, The Legacy provides the golfer with a distinguished tradition as one of Las Vegas's most brilliant golf masterpieces.
As with most championship and resort-style golf courses, every player (of all skill levels) has the opportunity to test the demanding, but innovative design. Strength, strategy and modesty combine to create excitement on every contouring fairway and sloping green. Natural desert terrain graciously landscapes and perfectly compliments the Scottish links design, blending tradition with beauty.
THE SUITS I was so intrigued by my new Tour Edge Comp LX irons that I neglected to notice I was playing one of the signature holes of The Legacy, "The Suits," a par three, hole #10 test of one's mettle. This 193-yard admiration with distinct theme tee boxes truly personifies Las Vegas golf. Here, the golfer will select their tee from the diamond, heart, club or spade-shaped area, setting their sights on a three-tiered green protected by indigenous desert. I needed every bit of my new Comp LX three iron to reach the dance floor safely!
THE DEVIL'S TRIANGLE
The Devils Triangle a series of three challenging signature holes on the back nine (#11, #12 and #13) creates a test of golf which can make or break your score. These par fours provide the golfer the opportunity to show their distance, accuracy and creativeness while experiencing a true links-style of golf.
THE LINKS "Links," which refers to "golf without any two holes joined" enables the golfer to see only the hole they are playing, making every hole a special experience. Well-played tee shots are rewarded with numerous plateau landing areas and carpet-like putting surfaces with the infamous #328 Tiff Bermuda (a drought tolerant turf that provides good putting conditions year round). Of many of the fine courses this reporter has played in Southern Nevada, these greens rank as "One of the Best."
VISITORS WELCOME Owned and operated by OB Sports, this prized jewel is one of six golf courses in Southern Nevada and has been known to host U.S. Open Qualifying. The Legacy welcomes visitors and locals alike and includes other amenities such as Golf Shop with the finest apparel, equipment and accessories, a complete practice facility, including a driving range, putting green and pitching, chipping, sand trap areas, tournament and group event packages, customized instructional programs from PGA-certified staff members, and premium golf equipment rentals, to name a few.
With a "distinguished" tradition, The Legacy has demonstrated a record of excellence and kept golfers coming back for more of what golf was meant to be.
