Designed by the legendary Jack Nicklaus, Legacy Golf Links was built in 1991, and is located in Aberdeen, North Carolina. This 18-hole, 7,019-yard course is only one of three courses in the Southern Pines, Pinehurst and Aberdeen area that has hosted a USGA national golf championship. This golf vacation getaway is also a recipient of many industry awards. It was chosen as one of the Top 50 golf courses in the country for customer service, and was awarded 4 ½ stars by Golf Digest. In 2009, the course was also ranked among the Top 25 Public Courses by Golf World’s Reader’s Choice Awards.
One of the best attributes of the Legacy Golf Links is that it perfectly blends playability, conditioning and aesthetics. Here, the average golfer will feel great playing golf even if things get a little erratic. According to most members, the Legacy Golf Links is probably the “friendliest” course in the area. The club’s rolling terrain kicks back everything into target, so golfers get lots of play. What’s also great is that you play in a wide expanse of green, lush and verdant scenery, which delightfully cuts through rolling hills of sweet Carolina palm. This splendid golf vacation package option features mounded fairways that keep the ball in play, and mounded greens which suck up the offline approach, yet bring them back toward the hole.
The Legacy Golf Links is a look-good, feel-good course that’s great to play, regardless of whether you’re in high spirits or you’re plain lousy on any given day. This exciting golf vacation destination offers superb elevation changes, rolling fairways which twist and bend, and pack a heavy dose of water, especially around the greens. Legacy also features four of the best par 3’s in the Sandhills region. This includes Legacy’s 18th hole, which is appropriately named “The Bear”.
