Amazing Greens kicked my butt but the course was awesome. Beautiful vistas on every hole. Great elevation changes. A true joy and challenge to play. Must play before you die August 14, 2014
only one complaint Loved this course. Great layout, wide fairways and you can score well if playing good. My only complaint (at least for the times we played it) was the pin locations. Most cups were cut in ridiculous spots. Tops of knobs in the green, bottom of slopes. It was almost impossible to get the ball close even when you hit a good shot. Other wise, the course was great. We all loved the layout. August 4, 2014
My favorite at Shanty Creek I'm probably among the minority that considers The Legend my favorite course at Shanty Creek. I love its 1980s architecture. Some of its narrow fairways will make the grip-it-and-rip-it crowd used to modern designs a bit squeamish. The endless parade of elevated tees and greens makes scoring tough. Many holes bend or dogleg through the deep woods, forcing players to choose their angle of attack. The only knock on the Legend would be the tricky par-4 second hole. It's just an awkward tee shot uphill over wetland that comes too early in the round. I'd like to see the tees built up or the hole transformed into a par 3. But all is forgiven on the fourth and fifth tees, where the commanding views of Lake Bellaire help everybody forget their score. August 4, 2014
Best golf in northern MI Blown away by how gorgeous this course is. Elevated greens and tees throughout. Awesome view. Great playability. Difficult greens. Breathtaking views of torch lake and bellies. Truly a pleasure to play. August 3, 2014
Consistent quality Played the Legend after playing Cedar River a few years ago. This course was consistent with the quality of the Shanty Creek courses and was consistent with other Palmer designed courses in difficulty and challenge. While the course is aesthetically very pleasing it is also made more difficult by the frequent elevation changes, rolling fairways and uneven lies. Ultimately, when you reach the greens they are fast with many undulations. The course is quite difficult but worth a round - just be sure to bring your A game. July 25, 2014
A great golf experience We recommend this course highly for all golfers visiting this part of our country. Very good conditions, interesting layout, alar a fair price! July 14, 2014
First time - will be back Typical Palmer, sloped fairways, not as narrow as described. My wife also enjoyed it, thought the red tees are very fair. June 1, 2014
The legend Great course that has great views and some fun holes to play. Would highly recommend this course to anyone playing in the northern Michigan area May 27, 2014
