The Legacy Golf Club Overview: The Legacy Golf Club is one of the most difficult “desert” golf courses around Vegas, this house-surrounded course offers a lot of challenge, without much fun. The golf holes, while generally long and well-bunkered, with uncharacteristically long rough for a desert course, don’t provide much in the way of entertainment value. Also, the signature 10th hole is the biggest gimmick of all time with each tee box being a different playing card suit. Too bad the golf hole is as boring as they come. The only holes worth mentioning are listed below:
The Legacy Golf Club Hole 13: This short par four is the only truly interesting hole on the golf course, with an extremely narrow landing area between desert wash left and houses to the right. The green is small, multi-tiered, and perched along the edge of the desert wash left and long. This is a good, short, target golf type challenge. (not pictured)
The Legacy Golf Club Hole 17: This average-length par 5 is reachable with a perfect drive, but the second shot must thread its way between a steep hill and bunkering right and a long lake on the left. The green has a tier running from the front to the back, so even a more tame approach must find the correct side of the green if any putt is going to fall. (not pictured)
