Designed by golf course architect Rees Jones, the Legend Trail Golf Course has two streams of play: the challenging Long Trail measures 6,845 years and the easier Short Trail measures 5,000 yards. The course is known for its wide fairways and TifEagle ultra dwarf greens. Each hole on the course is named after a surrounding feature of the Sonoran Desert. For example, if you look up Legend Trail’s Interactive Course Map, you will see that the course starts at “Nature’s Bounty”, ends halfway at the “Promised Land” and concludes at “Finishing Touch”.
