The Legends Golf Club
The Legends Golf Club – “Becoming of its Name”
As the host of the 2016 Saskatchewan Men’s Amateur Championship, The Legends is proof that it’s a course that can handle major competitive events as well as prove to be an enjoyable experience for all levels of golfers. This Links style golf course, which plays from 5200 to 7300 yards in length (depending on which of the five tee boxes you choose to play from), will test every aspect of your golf game and you will make full use of every club in your bag.
There are plenty of challenges on The Legends to test your mental strength such as water hazards, rolling fairways, intimidating fescue, and undulating greens but if that is not enough of a challenge for you, then you must play The Legends when the famous prairie winds are howling. Winds that will compare to any winds you would experience at a British Open.
“We do not have an official signature hole since we have many beautiful holes. But definitely the most talked about is the par 5 finishing hole, number 18. With a hazard right and water lining the entire left side, a good drive is essential on this hole. Golfers will then have to decide whether to go for the green in two or lay-up. The green has a huge bunker front right and water left and long, very close to the green. It is a hard approach shot even if you do decide to lay up with your second. We’ve seen both 3’s and 10’s on that hole by the same person”, explains The Legends’ staff.
The Legends Golf Club has one of the newest pro shops in Saskatchewan and they have a have a full array of golf clubs, clothing and accessories to make you look great both on and off the links.
