The Legends Golf and Country Club
Poor Condition- Great Staff
The staff were great from pro shop, cart staff to food and beverage staff. Unfortunately the gold course conditions are not good. Weeds abound just off the greens causing you to chip over them on the collar. Heavy weed populations on the greens and mole cricket damage severe. Good layout but putting is challenging with the excessive grain.

Add some TLC and you'll have a top-notch course!
First of all, I can't complain about the price to play - I think we payed $14, maybe $20 max.
BUT, had the course been better maintained & manicured, it could easily be a $45 course!
The design and layout of the course is great!
The weeds all over the fairways & the extreme rough - not so much!
My question would be,,, is the low rate you're giving out to play the course bringing in more golfers?
It didn't seem so as there weren't many golfers out on the course.
If this is a private course like I understand it to be, as a member, I would be astonished at the conditions!
I'll go back and play the course again once I hear the course conditions improve.

Disappointed by rough conditions
We played here in January and were very impressed by the entire facility.
On Sunday we expected to again be impressed but were very disappointed. Many of the fairways looked like they had ben dug up-- particularly the 11 th hole.
We heard that they had lost their course suprintendent two months ago and the new guy was working hard to get things back in shape. We will be back in January.
The entire staff and the restaurant was very enjoyable.

Wonderful Golf Day
Beautiful course layout with reasonable challenges. Well manicured fairways & greens. Wonderful added amenities e.g. Delicious lunch. Will definitely play this course again.

Always a good value!
We play Legends in Clermont two to three times a year. I like the course layout and we usually can play 18 in 3.5 to 4 hours. There was some crab grass on the fairways and some minor wear spots on the greens. However, overall the course is in good shape. I would recommend this course as a very good value.

A little disappointed.
Drove over from Tampa (45 miles). Special price was VERY good for the area! Staff very helpful and friendly. Unfortunately, course was in the worst shape I've ever seen it. Course was drenched with standing water from too much morning watering. Sand traps were hard packed "dirt traps" and wet. No "real" sand. Fairways dotted with weeds and unrepaired divots. Near rough was uncut and very deep. Lost several balls after watching them go in rough just off the fairway. Greens were bumpy with untended ball marks. Was slowed several times by maintanence staff getting in the way. Course can't control the weather but it was brutal hot and humid. This is a beautiful golf course. It has a nice layout but is starting to play a bit long (from the whites) for a mid-handicap ageing Duffer not quite ready for the Sr. Tees. It was nice to play without waiting or being pushed. The course just needs some TLC and more frequent mowing. I know this was just an isolated thing and expect next time it will be back in great shape!

This course is in absolutely awful condition at this time. What a same. It was once of the nicest courses in the area but is now a mess. The fairways have huge patches of weeds and grass, the greens have lumps of grassroots and diseased patches all over them. The driving range is awful with not a decent spot of grass for hitting balls down the range. I paid $14.95 and walked off the course after 9 holes it was so awful.

Celebration Management has put this course in the worst condition I have seen in 4 years. The only courses in area that compare in as poor condition are Stonybrook West and Palisades, which closed.
From fairways to greens the course in a mess! It's embarrassing to live in a community that has let it's course go so far in the wrong direction.
