Legend Trail is located in north Scottsdale AZ very close to Cave Creek and Carefree. It was designed by Rees Jones, one of today’s leading architects who also hails from the leading family of Golf Architects in America. Rees is now known as “The Open Doctor” since he is the USGA’s regular choice to design renovations for courses that have been designated as upcoming U.S. Open sites.

Legend Trail, which opened in 1995, is a very popular, daily fee course in the Sonoran Desert. It will fit the game of all level of players from its 4 sets of tees ranging from 6,845 yards down to 5,,000 yards. There are generous landing areas and distinctive putting surfaces, and plenty of elevation changes here to give you wonderful views of the valley, as you meander through the high sonoran desert, A there is water on only one hole, #7.

Just when you are getting lulled into thinking “this course ain’t so tough” you step up to the tee on #11 and from here thru #17 you will find plenty of challenge.

In addition to this wonderful golf course it is home to the Hot Stix golf club fitting center, and the John Jacobs Golf Academy. Hot Stix has a reputation among the best club fitters around, and certainly John Jacobs’s schools have one of the best reputations among golf schools
