Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 30 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great value on Golfnow. com We played on a Friday afternoon and the course was in great shape considering all the play for the summer. Greens rolled true, but some seemed slower than others. Only saw the bevcart 2 times for 18 holes - both times on the back side. August 23, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great deal! Nice conditions. Greens roll true and balls stick. August 10, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Bunkers are the worst I've seen Greens were slow and the bunkers are filled with rocks/gravel, not sand. Our foursome waited on every single shot. No ranger on the course. Schuss Mountain and Cedar River are a WAY better value. I will not be returning to the Legend. July 31, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by great track I have played the legend many times and it is always in great condition. Not long but a good test of golf. Views are amazing, especially during the fall colors. Unfortunately this round took 5 hours and 10 minutes to complete. Saw a ranger on hole 6 and then not again the rest of the day. This was disappointing because he talked to us on 6 about the backup ahead and was going to get the course moving. May 19, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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
Rated 4 out of 5 by 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
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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
