The Legacy Golf Club, rich in heritage and history, is an 18-hole par 71 championship golf course designed by renowned golf course architect Gary Panks. Located on what was once Dwight B. Heard’s 7,500-acre ranch, the golf club is rich in Arizona heritage and history. Taking great pride in preserving and integrating many of the historical structures and monuments, our 18-hole championship golf course offers a unique look and an added opportunity to experience some Arizona history and of the Heard legacy, from which the golf club takes its name. The original two-grain silos, built in 1902, still remain along the 18th fairway and were once the tallest structures in Maricopa County. The Sierra Vista House, which marks the 1st tee, was visited on occasion in the early 1900’s by Theodore Roosevelt and Pancho Villa. Come make your own history at the Legacy Golf Club!
Items sent to me by Doug Rankin VGA golfer. He is sharing for Senior golfers to use. New 2019 rule changes obtained from the Internet so they must be true.

 I am giving each of you the BENEFIT of SENIOR Golfer status for 2019…so review and incorporate the new rule guidelines! Doug.

Great USGA Rule Changes for 2019!!!!!

Rule 9.k.34(a) 
If a tree is between the ball and the hole, and the tree is deemed to be younger than the player, then the ball can be moved without penalty. This is so because this is simply a question of timing; when the player was younger, the tree was not there so the player is being penalized because of his age. 
Rule 1.a.5 
A ball sliced or hooked into the rough shall be lifted and placed on the fairway at a point equal to the distance it carried or rolled into the rough with no penalty. The senior player should not be penalized for tall grass which ground keepers failed to mow. 
Rule 2.d.6 (B) 
A ball hitting a tree shall be deemed NOT to have hit the tree. This is simply bad luck and luck has no place in a scientific game. The senior player must estimate the distance the ball would have traveled if it had not hit the tree, and play the ball from there. 
Rule 3.B.3 
There shall be no such thing as a lost ball. The missing ball is on or near the course and will eventually be found and pocketed by someone else, thereby making it a stolen ball. The senior player is not to compound the felony by charging himself with a penalty. 
Rule 4.c.7(h) 
If a putt passes over a hole without dropping, it is deemed to have dropped. The Law of Gravity supersedes the Rules of Golf. 
Rule 5. 
Putts that stop close enough to the cup that they could be blown in, may be blown in.  This SHALL NOT apply to balls more than twelve inches from the Hole.  No one wants to make a mockery of the game. 

Rule 6.a.9(k) 
There is no penalty for so-called “out of bounds.” If penny-pinching golf course owners bought sufficient land, this would not occur. The senior player deserves an apology, not a penalty. 
Rule 7.G.15(z) 
There is no penalty for a ball in a water hazard, as golf balls should float.   Senior players should not be penalized for any shortcomings of the manufacturers. 
Rule 8.k.9(S) 
Advertisements claim that golf scores can be improved by purchasing new golf equipment.  Since this is financially impractical for many senior players, one-half stroke per hole may be subtracted for using old equipment. 
Please advise all your senior friends of these important rule changes and keep multiple copies in your golf bag. Those not following the rules need to be provided a copy. 
Golf is above ALL . . . a game of integrity.
