Arizona Golf Course Review

Legend Trail Golf Club - Arizona Golf Club 08

Legend Trail Golf Club in North Scottsdale is a Rees Jones designed championship layout that is considered to be one of the premier golf experiences in Arizona. This exquisitely manicured course captures the essence of Sonoran style golf, as it meanders through the natural desert landscape that features outstanding vistas. PinnaclePeak and other prominent landmarks form the backdrops on many holes.

Legend Trail plays challengingly from the tips at 6845 yards, as every hole presents a carry from the tees to the fairways, with sculpted desert area in between. There are 59 sand bunkers located near the landing zones or greenside, and water comes into play on just 1 hole - the short par five 7th, which doglegs left around a lake. The fairways are generous enough however, that the course received the "Top 100 Fairways, Women-Friendly Course Award" in the 2000 issue of Golf For Women magazine.

Five sets of tees provide golfers with opportunities to play to distances and slopes measuring 6845 yards/138 slope, 6400 yards/127 slope, 6055 yards/120 slope for men and 142 for women, 5465 yards/132 slope for women and 4910 yards with s lope of 115 for ladies hitting from the forward tees.

The yardage marking system includes 150 yard stakes in the fairways and sprinkler heads that are measured to the center of the green. Cart paths provide measurements at 100 and 200 yards, and an alternating pin placement routine (front, middle, then back, etc) lets golfers know approximately where the holes are located.

The front nine at Legend trail is designed to let the golfer warm up gradually, as many of the opening holes play along a fairly level terrain with ample fairways and room greenside. The back side plays along a more undulating terrain with longer desert carries, and is tighter in nature - with low scores harder to come by. The green complexes - which were updated to Ultra dwarf TifEagle in the summer of 2008 - are large and undulating, with mounds and swales alongside that will challenge the short game abilities of all golfers .There are some elevated tees and raised greens along this rolling terrain, which takes golfers through a gorgeous residential community.
