Legacy GC (13-15)
May 21-22, 2005
Legacy Golf Club was Rated 4 1/2 stars by Golf Digest Best Places to Play
The Arnold Palmer course design incorporates towering pines, majestic oaks, native grasslands, all preserved as a stunning backdrop where Florida’s coastal wildlife abounds. Fairways wind through natural preserves. Five elevated tee boxes are offered on each hole. Greens are tucked among grand oaks and meandering streams. Existing wetlands and open grasslands add to the drama of each hole – making the course as gratifying as the setting.
