This course is so dramatic it might as well win an acting award. It is so moving it could reduce any man to tears or leave him speechless, breathless, out of wits. If there was any exaggeration in that, it was kept at a minimal. The Legacy Course at the Reunion Resort has been created with so much love for risk-reward play and challenge that a round is a story in itself. Let the many elevation changes tell its tale, and let it describe the kind of golf vacation one is to expect here.
The Legacy Course is an Arnold Palmer signature and belongs to the same facility as Nicklaus’ Tradition Course and Watson’s Independence. The Palmer layout measures a 6916 yards from the longest tees, par 72. Apart from the really dramatic changes in elevation, this golf vacation destination also features a good helping of trees lining the greens that add variety to the already dynamic terrain. Water comes into play on seven of the course’s 18 holes, with forced carries on three of the seven. And just as the elevation is dramatic, the views of these trees and the stunning, sparkling lakes, ponds, and wetlands will leave one mesmerized and confused as to just how much of a hazard they are. No hazard can be too beautiful can it?
But it is, without a doubt. Beautiful and dangerous if one lets it slip, but beautiful all the same. This is the kind of course that one would pretty much imagine hearing movie themes all throughout. This is so dramatic a golf trip to the Legacy Course would feel as emotional and as rewarding as receiving an acting award albeit without the waterworks. It is so moving one might actually think about moving here.
