I’m a golfer first and foremost so The Legends from a golfing standpoint fits me just fine. There are 3 courses on the property and they are all excellent, well-maintained, good layouts and interesting. The easiest is likely Heathlands followed by Parkland. The most difficult and challenging is unquestionably Moorlands.
The place is a golf factory run like clockwork. They are well-organized. Our package included 6 rounds of golf (cart incl), 7 nights accommodation, breakfast, lunch and 3 daily drink tickets, 2 for the afternoon and 1 at the Alisa Pub, the onsite bar and restaurant.
The onsite accommodation is provided in condos not far from the main clubhouse. They are well appointed. Ours had 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, 1 ensuite and 1 shared. They have a separate living area and small kitchenette fully equipped with utensils. There is daily maid service included. The suites are dated and the carpets severely stained. However, they are relatively clean and the maids do an excellent job. They are what they are, if you are looking for the Hilton, go elsewhere. They are a place to shower and sleep and from that perspective were OK.
Breakfast is buffet style with rubbery scrambled eggs, greasy bacon, grits and the worst sausage I’ve ever had. And it’s a challenge serving yourself with so many hungry golfers around. But it is what it is, to be expected in other words.
Lunch is quite a bit better with several choices off a menu ranging from sandwiches to pizza. It’s typical Pub fare but acceptable. Service is good, quick and friendly. The food is OK for the first few days but by the end of the week you get really tired of it. That’s when you hit the numerous outside restaurants.
The Alisa Pub is just plain awful. The food is terrible and grossly overpriced. The service is slow and bad-mannered. Two meals at this place and we were looking for restaurants off the property.
All-in-all, it’s the golf that rules here. The courses are all very good and fun to play. However, the onsite accommodations and food are average at best bordering on unacceptable.
They don’t clean the room. We found same hairs in same place of shower booth in 10 days.
My wife got bitten by bad bugs on the bed in 2nd night, and requested pest control three times.
But they never done nor reply at all.
Legends Golf and Resort is a of good idea gone bad. Packages include golf, lodging, breakfast and lunch. The lodging is adequate. Bedrooms are mainly two single beds per room. Our breakfast each day was buffet, warm at best and the quality was very low end. Temperature and taste wouldn't meet standards in a military mess hall facility; and that's coming from a guy that did 26 years in the military. Lunch was unremarkable, but at least cooked to order so it was hot when served. Golf consisted of some very good golf courses designed by such architects as Tom Doak and Pete Dye. Each course was marginally over-watered and had greens running too fast for the type of golfers that buy the packages. Overall, I would say the courses were well maintained; however, each course had greens running 11.5-12.5 on the stimpmeter with at least a third of the pin placements (each day on each course) verging on the ridiculous. It was clear the course superintendents were not monitoring how their courses were being set up each day. The resort's management team believes in overselling golf packages to the point that every round is 5-6 hours. Replays were denied because the courses were so overbooked; I've never seen anything like it. Each course had marshals, but as long at the groups were moving at a 5 - 5:30 hour pace they didn't care to intervene. I'm not saying that this type of golf model doesn't appeal to a lot of golfers; it clearly does. However, if you are a serious golfer who wants to travel to warm weather and play as much golf as possible at a "players" pace, Legends is not for you.
Four of us booked a four day, four round package. We had a nice two bedroom, two bath condo. Walking distance to Ailsa Pub which is on property. It also included breakfast and lunch at courses. Breakfast is a buffet and lunch had a very nice selection of items. The food was good. Enjoyed our stay.
The total package is what makes this a great deal. Breakfast, lunch, two drinks, and very good golf course - to include three on property and two other within an hour drive with the same food/beverage deal. The courses are very good as is the practice areas which provide free range balls with an on-property room key. The villas we stayed in easily accommodated four golfers and could easily handle six and are only minutes from the 3 main courses. For the town home for 6 nights, 5 rounds of golf, practice balls each day with breakfast and lunch each day cost about $125 each. The only small gripe is with pace of play which we averaged over 4.5 hours. But they space tee times to max out the courses which I imagine is what allows such great deals.
