Course Features:
Designed by renowned golf course architect Gary Panks, The Legacy's lush green fairways, forgiving rough, well-placed hazards, and manicured greens offer a challenge for golfers of all skill levels.

Indigenous grasses, flowers, shrubs and trees surround the rolling terrain. Its elevation provides exceptional views of Camelback Mountain, Squaw Peak and the downtown Phoenix skyline.

Hole #1
The historic Sierra Vista House to the right of the tee welcomes you to this beautiful opening hole. This four hundred yard straightaway par four will reward an accurate first drive, but miss the fairway to either side and a bunker awaits. The green is also protected by a bunker to the front/right side.

Hole #2
A four hundred and fifty yard par four. Although this hole is void of any bunkering and relatively straightaway, it may prove to be the most difficult hole on the golf course. Both distance and accuracy are a must to successfully navigate this giant.

Hole #3
The shortest of the three opening par fours, this three hundred and eighty yarder is well guarded off of the tee by fairway bunkers and out of bounds to the right . A large bunker protects the green from any shot missing short and left.

Hole #4
This very well guarded one hundred and ninety yard par three proves that reaching the green is only half of the battle. This large rolling green will test the putting skills of all levels.

Hole #5
Although it is the shortest par four on the golf course, this three hundred and fifty-five yarder places the emphasis on accuracy and shotmaking. Menacing fairway and greenside bunkers await any shot struck just slightly off line.

Hole #6
The longest hole on the golf course is this doglegging left five hundred and seventy-five yard par five. Well placed bunkers are in play on any of the three shots it will take to reach this modest yet undulating green.

Hole #7
This one hundred and thirty five-yard par three is no pushover. A shallow green guarded by four intimidating bunkers place a premium on concentration and short iron execution.

Hole #8
Accuracy off the tee will ease this hole up a bit, but this five hundred and fifty -five yard par five has plenty of teeth. Out of bounds to the right side and bunkers in play on the second and approach shots have to be avoided to reach this green in three.

Hole #9
Hitting South towards downtown Phoenix, this four hundred and forty yard par four is a challenging finish to the first nine. An accurate drive will avoid three fairway bunkers, while the approach shot must carry a transition area crossing the fairway and pass by a greenside bunker before landing softly on the putting surface.

Hole #10
A long slight dogleg to the right, the four hundred and five yard par four tenth starts the homeward nine off with a bang. Avoid the left side fairway bunkers and take a mid to long iron approach to a green guarded by a bunker to the right.

Hole #11
A beautiful one hundred and eighty yard par three. Guarded by a large greenside bunker, a shot that misses this green is better off to the right. Hit the green and the contours will challenge even the best putters.

Hole #12
The first encounter with water lures you to this challenging four hundred and sixty yard par four. From the championship tees the drive must carry one hundred and sixty yards of water before finding grass on the opposite side. Avoiding the deep faced bunkers to the right of the fairway, the player will have a mid to long iron approach over a rolling fairway.

Hole #13
Four hundred and fifteen yards lay between the golfer and birdie on this generous par four. Be careful hitting to this elevated green, a right side bunker and greenside mounding await an errant approach.

Hole #14
This five hundred and sixty-five yard par five plays to a slightly elevated green which is guarded by a ten thousand square foot bunker to the left and further guarded by a landscaped timber wall, providing the only separation between the bunker and a left side lake. One must make a careful club selection on the second shot here, for risk and reward will play a key role in the decision to proceed towards this well protected green.

Hole #15
A beautiful one hundred and sixty yard par three which demands a carry over water and several well placed bunkers protecting the front of the green. This elevated green may have some well guarded pin placements, but do not use too much club as the shot coming back may be just as intimidating as the tee shot.

Hole #16
With Squaw Peak dominating the horizon, this three hundred and ninety yard par four will require extreme accuracy off of the tee. A narrow landing area and right side fairway bunkers must be navigated before attempting an approach to this well bunkered green.

Hole #17
The largest bunker on the golf course waits to swallow any shot hit left on this magnificent two hundred yard par three. A bail out area to the right provides some relief for a shot that misses the green. Make par and move quietly to the eighteenth tee.

Hole #18
The original Heard Ranch grain silos to the right were once the tallest structures in Maricopa County, but do not let them take your attention away from this five hundred and ten yard par five. Avoid the fairway bunkers and going for the green in two is a definite possibility. But, the green is well bunkered and surrounded by severe banks, this shot demands accuracy.
