Legacy is an upscale, 18-hole championship daily fee course, unique from anything found in Southwest Florida. By offering value added, impeccable levels of service and conditioning it appeals to traveling golfers and locals alike. As an award-winning Arnold Palmer Signature Designed course, Legacy has earned its reputation as one of the premier layouts in the Southeast US. The course features elevated multiple tees and virtually every hole is framed with sand and water. Our unique course has generous landing areas and wide corridors, making the look very dramatic and visually challenging, while still approachable to all players.

This course can be better, needs a bit of love. Now a bit expensive compared to others in the area. Nice customer service.

Started off at the sign in when we were told that the course was over seeded, carts were restricted to rough only and beware of the operating sprinklers. This information should have been given when booking the reservation, not at sign in. We would not have chosen this course under these circumstances. Then several times during play the sprinklers would... More

I had the pleasure of playing this great golf course recently on my travels. The staff was very courteous and accommodating. The course is very challenging but fair and there are several different tees to choose your appropriate level. The layout of the course keeps the natural beauty intact and there are lots of memorable holes that could all contend... More

Played last week on email special. When I checked in they charged me regular price even though I mentioned the email special for our group. Refused to change it saying yep I charged you a few dollars more. Course is terrible, more grass in the bunkers then sand. Greens have dead spots of grass all over. They said they are... More

Course was in horrible, horrible, horrible condition....Do not play!! Greens have potholes in them, bunkers haven't been manicured in a long time, tee boxes are horrible. Arnold Palmer would throw up if he saw this goat farm.

This place was highly recommended, so we stopped by and checked it out. We had a great lunch, service was very friendly, we even got to try Mike's special cheeseburger! It hits the spot! And for the golf course, I'm not a golfer but my husband looks forward to golfing there when we get back to Florida. Can't wait to... More

I have played the Legacy since the first year it opened (1997) and it was owned and operated by Troon Golf. Needless to say, it was the BEST Golf Course in the Sarasota/Bradenton area for a number of years. When Troon sold the golf course, the golf course went through some changes that changed the experience of playing a GREAT... More
