High up north in Scottsdale near the Cave Creek/ Carefree border sits a little treat for golfers just waiting to be found. The Legend Trail Golf Club designed by Rees Jones offers a fun and challenging course for both men and women. The picturesque greens mix with the Sonoran desert to offer stunning views of the mountains, gorgeous sunsets, and also some desert wildlife. Blue herons, desert tortoises, owls, and even a bobcat have all been spotted in and around the course. No need to worry about the critters interrupting your game though. They mostly like to keep to themselves.
Each of the 18 holes at Legend Trail carry their own name taken from the desert surroundings. The interactive course map on their site will take you from Nature’s Bounty (hole 1) to the Finishing Touch (hole 18.) In fact, this map is an invaluable tool if you’d like to get a swing up on your opponent. Each hole features an aerial computer image, as well as actual pictures of each. Hints about the layout are given as well as tee markers and yardage. Challenges along the way include sand traps, a pond, trees, saguaro cacti, and it’s new TifEagle bunkering. This, coupled with the wide fairways and island tees, have made it a shoe in for one of the top 100 courses named in Golf Magazine. It has also been named as one of the top 100 Woman-Friendly Fairways by Golf For Women magazine. Golfers of all skill levels are welcome, and modifications can be made to some of the longer holes such as the 6,845 yard Long Trail which can be shortened to 5,000 yards making it easier on less advanced players.
If you’d like to develop or brush up on your skills, instruction from the John Jacobs’ Golf Schools and Academies is available. Whether you’d like to attend a two or three day school, or if you’d prefer private, semi-private, or group lessons, they have something for you. If you’d like to bring your group to Legend Trail, or host a tournament, just contact their coordinators. The coordinators will take care of every detail for groups up to 144 people. From the golf carts, to merchandise and prizes, and even breakfast, lunch or dinner, they’ll make sure your event is perfect so you come out looking like a star. If you forgot something that day, or would just like some new clothes or equipment, the Golf Shop is the place. Over 1900 square feet of apparel, equipment, accessories, and novelty items are perfect for yourself or as a gift. If you’re not sure what to give, gift cards are available, and can even be used for the classes.
