History- and heritage-rich Legacy Golf Resort in Phoenix,AZ has seen way too many good things in its long lifetime. It has witnessed the glory days, as well as the hey days of Old American West as the ranch of Dwight B. Heard. And today, it stands witness to countless glorious golf vacations spent here – all the while, having Arizona’s majestic South Mountain standing sentinel behind it to perfect the view.
Legacy Golf Resort‘s architects made sure that Dwight B. Heard’s legacy will be retained, even after it has transformed into one of the premiere golf resorts in the State. Some of the original Spanish-style structures remained untouched, adding only some amenities like the sparkling pool and health-spa facilities. Its 18-hole championship course was designed by no less than Gary Panks, and every little element of the course was strategically placed to capture the surrounding mountains’ views as well as each golfer’s heart. Its lush fairways, perfectly manicured greens, slight elevation changes and rough hazards all contribute to make the golf vacation destination a perfect breed of challenge and fun for players of all handicaps.
Because of its picturesque quality and excellent playability, Legacy Golf Resort has earned for its name not only a loyal following of avid golfers but of various golf publications as well. For one, it has been awarded one of the “Top 10 Places to Play in Phoenix” by Golf Digest. It has also proven itself competition worthy when it hosted the LPGA Standard Register Ping Classic in 2000. As it continues to improve itself, in the golf course and off with its world class roster of amenities, Legacy Golf Club will surely continue to be part of many more memorable golf trips in the future.
