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!

Hard hitting John Adair, Tony Judd and Chad Olberding all tied at 65 net today at Legacy Golf Resort. They finished on the scorecard playoff in the order stated. Good scores guys and well done. The Legend Dan Clark and Rich Golz tied for the Atta-a-Boy at 67 nets. No playoff was requested although it appears Dan may have won it if he cared. Usually good conditioned course today for Legacy, always enjoy the track there. Saw many of the sand traps from the inside today, so I know their sand is good too. Next up Wigwam Heritage course on Saturday so don’t miss that one. Rest of the field’s scores below. Played in a threesome with John Euler and his friend John Blair today.

Next up for VGA, Saturday, May 20, 2017 Wigwam-Heritage 7:45 AM  $36. 

Wigwam Heritage Red Course to some of us. Built in 1972, the Heritage Course is a traditional layout lined with pine and eucalyptus trees. The course’s closing stretch of holes (15, 16, 17 and 18) just may be the toughest final four holes in the Phoenix area. The 15th hole is a 414-yard par-4 that requires a well-placed tee shot to bring birdie or par into play. The 454-yard, par-4 16th features a dogleg left and an approach shot to an elevated, well-protected green with water right and back. The 17th hole is a lengthy par-3 measuring a solid 250 yards from the tips. And finally, the 591-yard 18th hole is a monster par-5 with a dogleg left off the tee. Three well-played shots are required for a chance at birdie or par on the closing hole.
