Heathland is a par 71 links-style Myrtle Beach golf course that is one of Tom Doak’s many beautiful designs. It is centrally located in Myrtle Beach on flat land without high vegetation, exposing you to the wind and giving you a very unique look from tee to green. The flat land and deep-faced bunkers combined with the gusty winds makes this golf course a treat for anyone looking for good links-style golf. The par 5 13th hole and par 5 5th hole are examples of links-style golf at its best with an inviting appearance off the tee and natural flowing hazards that run through them giving any level golfer a true test.

The Heathland Course at Legends Golf & Resort was awarded “Best public access course you can play in South Carolina” (2009). It was recognized as one of “America’s top golf courses”(Zagat survey 2009) as well as given 4 ½ stars by Golf Digest’s “Places to Play” in 2008.

Enjoyable 4 hr.15 min. round, even with cart path only restrictions. Must play appropriate tees, plus realizing you are playing at sea level. Wide fairways with challenging approach shots. Food & beverage package is worth $20 alone. Legends is converting to new EFI carts that are smooth and quiet. But they need to upgrade the beverage cart, as it sounded like you were at a hunt club, every time it backfired. Which was every time she hit the gas.

Course in great condition. Too many golfers on the course the round took close to 6 hours.

A great layout if you enjoy a links style course and cannot beat the price with the all included deal but the price to pay will be a long golf round! Aerated process underway...tee boxes and greens. I would estimate the front 9 greens got aerated a few weeks ago but are coming back nicely. Now the back 9 greens are what I could described as very bumpy...

always have enjoyed this course and this year was no exception. only problem was pace of play was a little slow. no rangers were seen all day.

Quinn (Coldwater, MI)

Great course, like the breakfast, golf, lunch deal. Forgiving off tee but still challenging.

Scott (Monroe, NC)

07/24/2015

Amazingly soggy conditions around the greens compared with the rest of the course and other courses in the area. It was clearly from watering versus rain. The tees were cut high, but higher grass versus no grass is preferred given the temps and time of year. The course was overall a great experience and in very goo condition. I had not played this course in a dozen or more years, but was impressed with the conditions and value based on cost. I also happened to shoot my personal best round ever in Myrtle Beach having logged at least 100 over the years.

Trey (Kingstree, SC)

Course was great, challenging but forgiving. Will definitely play again.

Darren

05/06/2015

Practice green was faster than the course greens which took some getting use to. Conditions were very good throughout. It is suppose to be a links course, but there were a lot more trees here than any course I played last Fall in Ireland, lol. I never hit a tree in Ireland, here there were definitely trees than came in to play. Meal included with the package, & you could order anything off the menu. Food & staff were GREAT!!!

Jerry

We play a Legends course every year. The package with breakfast, lunch, and 2 drinks makes this course a very good deal. The course is a good layout and consistently in good condition. Will be back!

Jose (Cedar Park, TX)

Jeff (Dayton, OH)

Set up like a British course, rough was sparse in many areas with tight lies on damp sandy mud with little grass. Greens were huge!!

Tom (Syracuse, NY)

01/22/2015

This is a lengthy course that will challenge a golfer with any handicap, low-medium-high. The par 5 holes are able to get to in three with no problem. Most of the par 4 holes require a very good drive and will still leave a long challenging shot. Two of the par 3 holes are very long for a senior.

Richard (Vienna, WV)

The Legends group golf courses are first rate in every way. I only rated the fairways a 9 because of the extremely wet conditions, which were not the fault of the courses. I gave the grill a 9 because the food was not world class, but certainly good. And the Legends group gives you tickets for breakfast, lunch, and two drinks as a bonus for playing a round of golf. You can't beat that.

Great course, great conditions for the amount of play, stay out of the rough around the greens. Pace of play is slow, due to double teeing only got 35 holes in, after being the first group out as a twosome. Played 18 Heathland, 17 Parkland.

Gary (Erlanger, KY)

Heathland was a fun course even though it was cart path only due to the amount of rain. We would rank it in the middle of the Legends operated courses. Nice layout, fair course and greens were good. Staff in the grill was fun.

Darren (Cheshire, CT)

09/10/2014

The course was good, but it was WAY OVERBOOKED. We had played over 5 hours and just got to hole 13 before we left. Driving out there was no break in groups so it's not just like there was a slow group or two. I understand these are popular courses, but it was so crowded we were waiting on every hole. Probably won't go back to any of the other courses there.

Colvin

09/09/2014

Very nice course and layout. Seemed to be over booked as we were 4 groups back waiting on 1st tee when starting. Also, the attendants did not get us into our carts until the last minute, even further delaying our experience and tee off.

Jean (Quebec City, Quebec)

Major problem was all are golf clubs did not arrive on time. we called ahead and were told we didn't have to reserve rentals they had plenty. we got there and they had 3 sets left all right handed . we had a left handed golfer with us . they did not have a set of clubs for him. and could not supply another way to get them. Why? my friend had a smart phone and was able to find a service that delivered the clubs to the course in time for our round .

Outstanding service from the starters. The day we played it was cart path only. We have one of our playing partners with a severe handicap walking (polio as a child). After seeing him struggle to walk at the 1st tee. The starter was kind enough to get our group a handicap flag. While we couldn't cross fairways, we were able to get off the cartpath and make some adjustments so his lie to make it enjoyable for him. Will definitely tell others of the willingness of this course to make our round enjoyable!!!

Again, booked off number 1, sent to number 10, pace of play was awful on the first 9, thank god the group in front of us quit after nine. Greens were bad, clearly not mowed and by late afternoon, so bumped up no chance to make putts. Attendants between rounds were just plain rude and overwhelmed, had no idea what was going on. Doubt I will ever go back, which is a shame, courses are fun when in proper condition

What can I say but slow, slow slow. 5 1/2 hours of slow slow slow golf. Waited every single hole. Three foursomes backed up every hole. The people behind us left. Why do they over book a golf course. One of the worst rounds ever. I wanted to leave after 12 holes. I was getting sun stroke waiting. No shade anywhere and waited every hole in the scorching sun. Won't be back.

Shaun (Bloomington, IN)

08/20/2013

Loved the links feel, but could tell the greens had recently been aerated greens were pretty sandy. Also for half the course the tees were moved up to basically a winter tee set where all tees were located with the Red tee box, it would have been nice to know that the course was under this maintenance before playing. But overall this was my favorite layout of the trip.

James (Bristow, VA)

07/15/2013

Check-in is always unorganized and not timely. I go back 10 years and this past week. Has never improved. You need to rethink setup and organization. Also your person checking in for Heathland 0n 07-09-2013 needs to rethink his career path. Not customer service friendly. His attitude is what reminds me of the past years experience at your club. Will not be back and as the old saying goes we will tell 10 others about the unpleasant experience.

We played on a rainy and windy day, so it made things challenging. However had a great experience with this course. It was in great shape from tees to green. It is a Pete Dye course so there were far too many ill placed bunkers and way too many blind shots. Great course to play for lower handicappers.

Ray (Linthicum Heights, MD)

All the Legends courses were fantastic along with the staff & food. We played Moorland & Parkland as well. The last course was Oyster Bay, nice course but the pro would not give us a replay, said they were booked but we overheard him telling a friend on the phone they were wide open in afternoon. Sent us to the Pearl who would not honor our replay. All 4 of us will never play Oyster Bay again.

Fairway grass seemed dormant but chemically enhanced and painted green. Green chemicals being sprayed all over the place while we played. It is probably beautiful in the summer but we would not play this course again that time of year. The course itself was also too challenging for our level of play.

Layout was decent, but pretty easy. Very open fairways. VERY, VERY crowded, and starter constantly pushing you, even though we were waiting on tee box for group in front of us to clear par 3. Starter told us to pick up pace. Needs a lot better management. Will not play again.

Don (Roanoke, VA)

08/04/2012

Due to wet conditions playing surfaces were so-so. Cart path only rules make for a very tiring day. Courses need to consider discounts or compensation when carts aren't allowed on fairways. Conditions at Heathland were slightly better than Long Bay.

06/14/2012

I am going to be perfectly honest. The four people in our group loved the entire experience of playing Heathland. A wonderful course that just ate me up for the first time. Greens were the best I have been on in some time. I think next year when we visit MB we've decided just to play 3 rounds at the Legends and try to find some other courses as good. All this with free breakfast, lunch and drinks. The pro shop person on duty went out of his way to arrange a tee the next day for us. On a negative note, I know the job is tough and the times are tough, but the bag people at the bag drop could put on a friendly face ... fake it. We tip well.

The best 6.5-hour, 18-hole round in the USA! We played in mid-January. Minor frost delay. Took the turn and became part of a queue of 16 golf carts. There was no relief. Done with the course despite the high ratings I gave it. Mismanaged.

My favorite Legends course. Great shape for the amount of play. Perfect for me (46) and my dad (76) with tee options.

PeteM

03/03/2012

Played four Legends courses. We were supposed to play Parkland on our last day but as we have played that before and really liked Heathland, we opted for a replay at Heathland. Oyster Bay - 2/27; Heathland and Heritage - 2/28; Moorland and Heathland - 2/29.

Heathland - I had never played this one but can say now that this is one of my favorites. Not quite as difficult as Moorland but a really nice course with a good variety of holes. Tee to green, it was in really good shape. Greens were fairly fast.

As I have read before, at the Legends they start out on both sides in the morning and putting people out the back until 9:08 (we had the first time on the front at 7:00. The starter told us to take our time and, because we were a three-some, play two balls because if we made the turn too early, we'd end up waiting). So, as we weren't getting pushed by the group behind us, we did take our time, ended up making the turn at 9:15 and headed right out on 10. As they book both sides though, things started slowing down quite a bit on the back. It's just the way it works here, nothing you can do about it. Again, nice course and would definitely play it again.

Be ready for a long round. Fivesomes SOP. Our group was placed behind a sixsome. Marshalls not to be found after 3 p.m. When we complained we were told to wait for the fivesome behind us to come on the green with us. I guess that would make us forget about watching the sixsome ahead of us take 15 min. to putt out. Slow play is all too common today, but to encourage it by PROMOTING fivesomes and sixsomes is not acceptable to me and I'm sure most other golfers. We played 4 rounds in two days and the fivesome was not an isolated incident.

Timothy

01/27/2012

We played this on 1/26/12. It seem to play easier than I thought it would because it really isn't links style. The pace slowed down a bit on the back but was still not bad. I enjoyed the day being paired with a guy that works there and getting a little local knowledge (thanks, Les). The fairways are a little thin but not bad for January. The greens a very large so hitting them with approach shots is easy, the undulations and grain make the putting require a lot of attention. I would play this course again.

Liked the course very much - great condition. From Ireland; love links courses. Greens, tees, fairways very good.

Elaine/Harvey (Simpsonville, S.C.)

11/30/2011

Played the best on Heathland - more lady friendly and the greens were not like Moorland - you could make some putts. Enjoyed very much.

Jeffrey (Seven Hills, Ohio)

11/22/2011

Awesome layout, love some of the blind tee shots and/or approaches.

Andy (London, Ontario)

11/15/2011

Links style course, well maintained. Clubhouse atmosphere was excellent. Nice breakfast and lunch included - will play again.

John (Pickering, Ontario)

11/11/2011

Wet but in good shape for overseeding. Did not know that breakfast, lunch and drinks were included.

Amer (Montreal, Quebec)

I'm a local. Courses themselves are awesome layouts. Usually in good condition. Staff not the nicest. Rounds take forever. They normally overbook. 2-2 hr. 15 min. front, 20-30 min. wait at the turn, due to overbooking, 3-3 1/2 hr. back 9. Can't remember last time we finished in under 5 1/2 hrs. Same at all 3 courses. Lunch was the best part. I've played super early, mid-morning, and early afternoon ... all the same.

Good solidd course, does not beat you up. Fun to play for all levels.

John (Palmyra, Va.)

10/31/2011

Pro shop folks were very good, especially considering we were playing on a rain check. Course was in fairly good shape.

Rene (Pinttenra, Quebec)

10/29/2011

Great experience of golf. We will be back.

Robert (Wilbraham, Mass.)

10/25/2011

No complaints.

Morton (Huntington, N.Y.)

10/22/2011

Great experience.

Tim (Roanoke, Va.)

10/19/2011

Had previously played the course and would again play the course. Really enjoyed the package including the breakfast, lunch and two beers.

Joseph (New Market, Md.)

10/06/2011

Course was awesome.

Bob (Chicago, Ill.)

10/06/2011

In the clubhouse, Heather waited on us for lunch. She was very polite and great and quick service. We need to play from the correct tee boxes per our hdcp.

Richard (Bridgewater, N.J.)

10/04/2011

We enjoyed playing here this year. Only issue was the back nine took 3 hours after only 2 hours on the front (we teed off at 7 a.m.). Lunch also took awhile so we were very rushed to hit our second 18 tee time at the Moorlands. They had too many people on the course.

Brad (Appleton, Wis.)

09/30/2011

Greens were very slow and bumpy. Some were quite inconsistent.

Paul (Austin, Tex.)

09/29/2011

Course was fantastic - cart attendants were downright rude. Everything else was great.

John (Glenolden, Penn.)

We stayed at the Legends resort (in the Turnberry condos - which were actually quite nice) and played this course the first day. This was a fun course. You gotta love that wide-open, links-style design. The whole Legends complex was in great shape. Your golf here comes with free breakfast, lunch, and two beers, which is a pretty good deal (and the food is actually pretty good!). The only problem with the Legends is that they pack 'em in. On any given day there can be multiple tournaments and more golfers than I have ever seen in a single place, so needless to say it's very, very busy here. Forget about replays, but as a consolation, the pro shop staff can get you out on another course in the area such as Arrowhead, Wizard, etc. with a good rate (typically about $39 with cart). If you stay at the resort you get unlimited range balls with your room key. Overall we liked staying here and will do it again.

Wade (Edmonton, Alberta)

09/12/2011

Nice links course, really enjoyed, nice pleasant round and first course we played to start the Legends experience.

Danny (Morgantown, W. Va._

09/06/2011

I like the open links style that is different than many here in the US.

Bradford (Clarksburg, W. Va.)

07/16/2011

Excellent.

Ernie (Lowell, Mass.)

07/02/2011

Pro shop and breakfast staff were excellent, but the bag drop area and starter were the rudest people I ever encountered. I've been to Myrtle Beach 6 times on golf vacations and have played 25 courses. This was the first time we've run into a rude starter. We were at the tee box by 9:05 for a 9:16 tee time and he started another twosome that he said was suppose to pair up with us, but since they didn't know if we were gonna show. We had checked in at the pro shop at 8:20 then went for breakfast and reported to the bag drop at 9:00. I will never play there again.

Scott (Cumming, Ga.)

06/27/2011

Loved the layout, could've been in better condition.

Jim (Lexington, S.C.)

06/08/2011

Loved the course! Forgiving but rewards good shot making.

Turbo

06/01/2011

Pro shop was good, starters and marshals were rude and unprofessional.

Chip (Mississauga, Ontario)

05/28/2011

Really liked the links-style design which gives some variety from the traditional Myrtle courses. The staff and food in the clubhouse restaurant were amazing. We're going to look at staying at the Legends resort for our next trip.

Jim (Melbourne, Fla.)

05/28/2011

Golf factory.

Edward

05/26/2011

Just sanded the tees ... no big deal and I am sure they will be fine in a couple weeks. Masseuse post-round was a nice touch (no pun intended).

Ray (Linthicum Heights, Md.)

05/14/2011

Legends courses are always in great shape. The free lunch and 2 drinks is also a plus and will bring us back.

Terry (Mukwonago, Wis.)

05/11/2011

Good course.

Matt

05/11/2011

Excellent.

Caldude2NC (High Point, N.C.)

05/09/2011

All Legends courses in great condition, the staff was great and the free lunches were very good. This was our favorite of the three.

Ronald (Rollinsford, N.H.)

05/04/2011

The course and practice facilities are in excellent condition and the clubhouse is amazing!

James (Hinckley, Ohio)

04/29/2011

Greens slightly slow, but overall still a solid choice.

Jon (Burlington, Wash.)

04/29/2011

Great greens.

Harvin (Midland, Tex.)

04/23/2011

Good, fair course.

Denis (Laval, Quebec)

04/19/2011

Marshall on Moorland pushed too much. One of our foursome had to skip a hole and wait at the tee box ten minutes for the next 3 holes. Bottom line: 4 of us were not in the game anymore. Bad decision.

Brian (McKinney, Tex.)

04/18/2011

Course is in great condition. However, the pace of play was unacceptable. 3 hrs. 20 min. to finish the back nine, up to four groups on a hole waiting to hit. They dump people on the course front and back - completely mismanaged golf factory.

Greg (Reading, Penn.)

04/15/2011

The course was in perfect condition; just great. I would put this on a list of must-plays.

Jeff (Ferrum, Va.)

03/31/2011

I think they need to really discount the second rounds.

Grasshopper (Ayr, Ontario)

03/25/2011

Played a double header with Parkland in the morning and Heathland in the afternoon. What can I say? Some of the courses in Myrtle Beach hire bad people to represent their course. This was certainly the case with Heathland. We finished up on Parkland and drove over to drop our bags for the afternoon Heathland round. The old grump starts yelling at us to get away from the drop off area. Literally the guy was screaming. We were over an hour ahead of our tee time and this grump snaps at us that he had been looking all over for us. When we go to check in for the starter ticket the person (male) at the desk asks for the printout of our reservation. We advised that we didn't have a printout. We didn't have one with our morning round at Parkland and this didnt present a problem. Somehow this guy thought we carried a printer with us on our vacation. It was a pure example of a misanthropic, churlish employee that was giving the place a very bad vibe. Clearly the people on this Heathland need some training what it takes to do their job successfully. I wouldn't go back to this facility after being treated like a little kid. Who needs to be yelled at and scorned for not having a printer? The two guys that joined us told us that they were yelled at as well so we didn't feel it was personal. Apparently the wind blew some cards down. I liked the layout of the course. Not as much as Parkland, which was more challenging on the course. Poorest employees at Myrtle Beach anywhere.

Dan (Camden Wyoming, Del.)

03/24/2011

Good course. Would like to try one of the sister courses also.

James (Wellington, Ohio)

03/24/2011

Very tough, undulating greens and too many bunkers ... but most holes are fair.

Steve (Batavia, Ill.)

03/22/2011

Greens were fast.

Clare (Smiths Falls, Ontario)

03/13/2011

Course was in great shape. Most forgiving of the 3 Legends courses, but will be more difficult when the rough is not dormant. Enjoyed the round immensely.

Mike (Myrtle Beach, S.C.)

03/09/2011

Good layout. Very friendly. The wind will dictate how difficult the course will play.

Larry (Rhinecliff, N.Y.)

03/04/2011

All the Legends courses are fun in different ways.

Ryan (Warren, Penn.)

03/02/2011

This course was very enjoyable.

Frank (Livonia, Mich.)

02/23/2011

Course was in great shape.

Joe (Troy, Ill.)

02/22/2011

Course layout was nice and interesting.

Jim (Pooler, Ga.)

11/25/2010

Scottish-like experience.

Fred (Scotch Plains, N.J.)

11/24/2010

Pace of play is terrible but otherwise a great course. Why is it that it is always a 5- to 5:15-hr. round here?

John (Baltimore, Md.)

11/18/2010

Good layout, but too crowded (5+ hour round).

Michael (Wyckoff, N.J.)

11/11/2010

Good layout.

Dave (Mendon, Mass.)

11/02/2010

We played Heathland on Oct. 19 and the course was very busy (5+ hr round). The rangers were very visible but friendly. The course was in good shape with large undulating and fast greens. The Legends package included breakfast, lunch and 2 drinks. The best deal I've seen in a long time.

Benoit (Gatineau, Quebec)

11/02/2010

The course was in its best shape in years last week. Greens were perfect and the layout always as interesting. The staff members know what they are doing at any level.

Robert (Evans, Ga.)

10/31/2010

Lunch menu has changed for the worse. Otherwise, a great golfing experience.

David (Sainte Adele, Quebec)

10/19/2010

Fairways & greens were wide and expansive and well-manicured. Found this course to be just another links course and least of 3 on-site courses, so I would consider it overpriced. Maybe my reaction is due to playing course on only 3 hrs. sleep due to airline delays. Very well organized setup and very cordial reception staff. Saw marshall too often. It was a little irritating though he was polite.

Douglas (Frederick, Md.)

10/16/2010

Always a nice round of golf.

Lofton & Hazel (Auroroa, Ontario)

09/27/2010

Everything was very good, friendly staff, good food and great course condition.

Coleen (Glenshaw, Penn.)

09/22/2010

Odd experience here ... have played this course about 5 times over the years and was quite surprised that they would put a single with 3 women. Of course the gentleman (and I use that term loosely) did not want to play with our group so we went out a three-some. I didn't really care one way of the other but was a bit insulted by the man's attitude. Haven't had that experience too often at MB courses so I was surprised. The starter made light of the situation which helped the awkwardness but I question the wisdom of putting a single, late-60-year-old man with (3) 40-year old women. Greens were lightning quick, had to bring your A putting game. The course was just as great as I remembered. Free lunch was a very nice bonus.

Rich (Toms River, N.J.)

09/09/2010

Very good layout, open, with fair reward. Pace of play was the best on the Strand. Look out for snakes!

Walter (Coraopolis, Penn.)

08/04/2010

Good experience.

Steve (Mission, Tex.)

06/08/2010

This was an incredible golf experience. When you get to the bag drop the idea of cattle car golf pops into your head. But in practice that is not how it works out. They move a lot of golfers here, but we did not feel at all rushed - even though we did finish in 3 hours and 50 minutes. The staff members were super friendly - and most had a sense of humor. The course is astoundingly beautiful and was in wonderful condition. We can't wait to come back and play this course. Oh yeah, your fee includes ticket for breakfast, lunch and two drinks - which was a pleasant surprise to us.

Pat (Catlettsburg, Ky.)

05/25/2010

Play was too slow. Our round was about 5:10 and we waited on virtually every shot.

Vic (Barrington, Ill.)

05/18/2010

Our group enjoyed the course very much and wants to go back.

Gregory (Scottsdale, Ariz.)

04/25/2010

This was a different design experience for me. I enjoyed the links flair to it. Sometimes you have to let the ego go and play sideways out of the pot bunkers as I learned the hard way. My eagle on a tough par 5 helped soothe the wounds. Look forward to playing it again.

Reid (Crucible, Penn.)

04/21/2010

Very well organized. We started right on time. The waitresses during breakfast and lunch were very attentive. Overall staff very friendly and made the foursome feel really comfortable.

Alan

04/20/2010

I liked the $15 pro shop certificate and the complimentary food and drink.

Richard (Denville, N.J.)

04/16/2010

Absolutely perfect condition, always a favorite.

Azlan (Grimsby, Ontario)

04/06/2010

Thoroughly enjoyed the course. Breakfast, lunch and beers added to the enjoyment! Played in 4 1/2 hours in the afternoon.

Lazaros (Toronto, Ontario)

04/01/2010

Too many people ... 5-plus hours to finish the round ... not acceptable at any time ... stop trying to make more money and allow for faster play ... will not be playing Legends again with that type of cattle golf ...

Jim (Hartford, Conn.)

04/01/2010

Exceedingly slow play negatively affected the quality of the round. We played Parkland. Great value which included lunch and drink vouchers and $15 off in pro shop. Would consider playing again, if only for the perks. Good bar to watch college hoops.

Jerry (Scotch Plains, N.J.)

03/25/2010

#13 par 5 if memory serves had an unfair pin placement in our group's opinion. Extreme back right is pretty tough to get close to after such a long hole. But vouchers for lunch, b-fast & drinks was nice touch and waitstaff were great!

Rick (Mississauga, Ontario)

03/03/2010

Club pro refused a rain check for our group. We knew we were back the next day, he said their policy to give out only on day of rainout. All services were excellent except for him.

Larry (Woodbridge, Va.)

03/01/2010

Like the fact that we received coupons for food, drinks and the pro shop.

Kimmy (Lincolnton, N.C.)

02/25/2010

Overall good experience. Again, still very crowded due to the deals but worth dealing with the crowds for the perks. Free food in the grill was great as well as the free cold beers.

Herbert

02/23/2010

Course was in great condition and the staff there was great.

Jeremy (Concord, N.C.)

01/18/2010

Always love the Heathland, favorite of the three at Legends. A great layout and you can definitely score here if you hit good shots. Greens were a little rough and bumpy all week, but that was the only disappointment. Through the green was in excellent condition. Starters were fantastic with our group all week long and very attentitive. Best practice area I've found at the beach, and pro shop and grill are fantastic.

Raymond

01/05/2010

Glenn

11/27/2009

Fun shotmaker's course. Our group found the greens a little rough and tough to read. Excellent range facility but it's not at all convenient to the Heathland staging area. Excellent club sandwich at 19th hole.

John

11/11/2009

The best.

Benoit (Gatineau, Quebec)

11/09/2009

Played last week, the conditions greatly improved since my last visit in '06. Very enjoyable and different course.

Marc (Mascouche, Quebec)

10/28/2009

Always great to play the Legends.

Bob (Windham, N.H.)

10/19/2009

The condition of the greens was not as good as they have been in the past.

Art (Methuen, Mass.)

10/18/2009

Heathland was a bit of a disappointment since we last played it. The greens were not as smooth as before.

Glenn

09/10/2009

Would have like to know when the greens were air-rated. Would have been nice to have yardage on sprinkler heads. other than that course and staff was great.

Howard (Raymore, Mo.)

08/22/2009

Course was in great shape - had my best round of the week on this course (shot an 82).

Andrew

07/16/2009

Awesome experience. Got lost getting there but the staff was very friendly and still got me out. Fairways are open and very forgiving off the tee. Greens in excellent shape. Great course that the average golfer could enjoy. Overall, I would definitely play here again and looking forward to playing Moorland and Parkland in the future.

Robert (Kingsport, Tenn.)

06/30/2009

Open fairways; not too tight.

Bob

03/24/2009

Always fun to play.

Paul

03/23/2009

Superb!

Marty (Port St. Lucie, Fla.)

02/18/2009

Played Oct. 7, 2008: Outstanding day. Excellent service by everyone, and a very enjoyable course.

Sung (Rivervale, N.J.)

02/18/2009

Played Jan. 18, 2009: Great course, would definitely recommend to others.

Frank

01/12/2009

Commented on September 12, 2008: Really looked forward to playing here a few years ago, had a tee time, when I got there I was greeted with the course is closed for renovation, we've put you on the Parkland course. Wasn't too pleased with that, so I left. The next visit I put the last visit aside, and this time got to play it. Course layout is nice, no houses (which is rare in the area). The course was very burnt up due to the hot weather. Other than that, it was pretty good.

Leonard (Beverly, Mass.)

09/24/2008

Played April 26, 2008: Tough pin placements and very hard-surfaced greens. They would not give individual players score card; feel this is a big negative.

Lynn (Old Saybrook, Conn.)

08/05/2008

Played Jan. 29, 2008: Legends had the best all-around facility (on our trip), with practice area, bar/lunchroom open in January when most are closed. We like the Heathland course the most, especially because we were not crowded with visible houses along the course.
