Legend Trail

Legend Trail GC, Scottsdale. Rees Jones with Forrest Richardson and Greg Muirhead, 1995.

There’s nothing particularly different here within the context of desert golf, but generally the course fits the terrain well and the corridors are wide enough that while you might put a few balls in the desert, you don’t worry so much about putting them in someone’s backyard pool. The back nine is especially strong, though I found the 16th hole–the first of consecutive par 5s–a bit awkward. The course finishes strong though with the reachable 17th and a good finisher. But when your neighbors are Mirabel and Whisper Rock, you’re always going to be looking up.
