Built within a large, lake-laden property that lies between Prior Lake and Lakeville, the course at Legends Golf Club weaves its way around a number of menacing water hazards. All told, there are fifty acres of water and twenty acres of wetland areas in play, affecting thirteen holes in total.
More than a million cubic yards of earth was moved during construction, with three hundred mature trees (between 20 and 30 feet in height) planted at strategic positions around the layout, and a “stadium” design style ensures adequate hole separation throughout the layout.
The four par three holes are particularly challenging as each of them demands a heroic tee shot. A gully between tee and green on the 5th and a wetland area at the 7th mandates a forced carry on these two holes then water on the 13th and 17th demands the same all-or-nothing strategy on the back nine.
Strategic golf with a premium on accuracy and being correctly positioned to give yourself a way to put the ball on the proper area of the green. Not a place to go low but it will test your ability to manage your game.
Only a few holes where you want to try busting a drive. More often than not you will be using shorter clubs to keep yourself safe and not try to get greedy. Bunkers are well placed but are not in the best condition.
One of the best restaurants in the area.
