Legacy is an upscale, 18-hole championship daily fee course, unique from anything found in Southwest Florida. By offering value added, impeccable levels of service and conditioning it appeals to traveling golfers and locals alike. As an award-winning Arnold Palmer Signature Designed course, Legacy has earned its reputation as one of the premier layouts in the Southeast US. The course features elevated multiple tees and virtually every hole is framed with sand and water. Our unique course has generous landing areas and wide corridors, making the look very dramatic and visually challenging, while still approachable to all players.

Lots of Water

Played 18 here, great course. Back nine is very challenging. There is water on every hole (lots of gators too).

From the moment you drive into Legacy Golf, you feel that you are at a special place. The Pro Shop sits above the course and it is open and inviting. There is a restaurant grill on the other side. You are greeted by all the staff that is available. You are greeted sincerely. Everyone is friendly. The course is in... More

Challenging but very fair golf course. Great layout, no two holes are the same. It is challenging enough for a scratch golfer and fair enough for any handicap player. Conditions were excellent and the service impeccable. There is a deal including breakfast, lunch, and two drinks- the food is fantastic and your breakfast is ready in less than 5 minutes...... More

Course has a great layout with lots of different holes and shots throughout. Very fun to play. My friends and I have been playing this course for a couple yrs. on our annual trip down from Buffalo and Mike, Natasha, Stephanie and Samantha all went above and beyond in taking care of our group. They took the time to get... More

The greens ware in horrible condition, we kept getting wet with sprinkles and no one told us they were on. There were weeds everywhere, and when we went to the restaurant portion of the course the service was absolutely unprofessional. I also noticed the staff was drinking on their shift, and smelled like Marijuana.

I've heard both good and bad about this course and was invited by a friend in Rotary to join him and a couple of his friends for 18 holes. The course was in excellent shape, although the greens seem to be a little slow. This is a very challenging course and what I would call Target golf. Very very challenging... More

Started off at the sign in when we were told that the course was over seeded, carts were restricted to rough only and beware of the operating sprinklers. This information should have been given when booking the reservation, not at sign in. We would not have chosen this course under these circumstances. Then several times during play the sprinklers would... More

I had the pleasure of playing this great golf course recently on my travels. The staff was very courteous and accommodating. The course is very challenging but fair and there are several different tees to choose your appropriate level. The layout of the course keeps the natural beauty intact and there are lots of memorable holes that could all contend... More

Played last week on email special. When I checked in they charged me regular price even though I mentioned the email special for our group. Refused to change it saying yep I charged you a few dollars more. Course is terrible, more grass in the bunkers then sand. Greens have dead spots of grass all over. They said they are... More
