The Legacy Golf Links was the host of the 2000 U.S. Women’s Amateur Public Links Championship, and the course is certainly primed to reward strong players who understand its design.

Featuring many doglegs among its par fours and par fives, players must consider both the fairway’s shape and the surrounding forest when teeing off. Going wide from the tee will often leave the best view of the green, if not the best distance. Playing to the inside of the dogleg, however, will leave a blind shot if you come up short.

Nicklaus Design incorporated heroic elements as well into its use of doglegs. Consider No. 10, where players will consider how much pond they should bite off when playing to the Cape-style fairway.

The 460-yard No. 18 hole has always been celebrated in the local golf scene...or cursed by those who are playing it in the moment. Another dogleg right, players will tee off to a largely blind landing area. Upon landing, players must now consider the best approach to a green fronted by a pond. Those who play wide of the dogleg will have a better angle but, again, a farther distance. Those on the inside of the dogleg will have a shorter shot, but a forced carry of the hazard.

Jack Nicklaus will forever be associated with greatness on the golf course, but it’s his design work that should also be remembered in equal measure to his magnificent competitive achievements on the links.
