Play with a homeowner
1 Helpful / 2 Not
Pros: Beautiful private course mostly flat. It follows a walkway and a creek. Property very well maintained. Quite a few tunnel shots. Water hazard shots but not many opportunities, if any, to actually lose your disc to the water. Mixture of wooded shots and open shots.
Cons: The homeowner we played with indicated that it can get really busy. However, we did not experience that the one time we played it.
Other Thoughts: Pedestrians walk the same pathway so be on the lookout. Also, they are very serious when they say no playing without a homeowner. We were passed 3 times by a security guard looking for proper identification.

Has tee signs
Multiple tees for some holes
Has some benches throughout course
Many of the holes have shade where this can be really appreciated in the hot and humid summers
Good mix of wooded and open fairways
Water comes into play on a few holes but the creek is shallow and narrow enough where it shouldn't be a factor in losing a disc
Walking path meanders throughout the course and are also part of the fairways where parkgoers can cause some delays
Gravel walking paths/fairways will scuff up the plastic
Park seems to be popular with parkgoers on nice days
Some of the natural tee pads have exposed tree roots
Lots of trees where some fairways are tight and can be quite unfair
Didn't recall seeing any next tee signs - refer to the course map
Course can hold water and get pretty muddy after rainfall on the back nine
Parking available only on the street
This is a nice course that I got to play due to a two disc challenge offered by a disc golf company. The first nine holes are more wide open where you can rip some drives while the back nine are generally more technical where some are "filler" holes in my opinion. The park can get crowded so you can expect to be delayed with other parkgoers walking up and down the fairways.
Pros: One of the most beautiful courses I have had the privilege of playing. Some parts are open while others are wooded. It has a nice creek and many benches you can stop and take a break on. There is plenty of wildlife as well.
The baskets are in great condition and the course is well kept up with. The holes are pretty easy to find as well as your disc if you have a wayward drive, even if you toss it in the creek.
Cons: Course Holds water in quite a few places after it rains. Mud as well.
No parking, have to park on the road.
A bit too many trees on the wooded holes
Other Thoughts: Although this course is wooded and can be annoying when hitting small trees, it is a really fun and challenging course as it will test your accuracy and precision. One of my favourite ones to date.
There is a wide variety of holes that require different types of shots; some open, some that curl right and left. There is always a challenge, no matter how many times you play it.
*All of the Holes have signs on them now*

Nice Course But no signs after hole 9
Pros: The fairways are very well maintained. There is a map at hole 1 that I recommend taking a pic of on your phone to use as you go through through the course. Holes 1-9 were great! Really nice course!
Cons: Holes 10-18 were not marked and are mostly in the woods so we did a lot of searching for the last nine holes and were not even sure where to tee off from.
Other Thoughts: Great course to do in the summer because it is almost entirely in the shade!!

Legacy Park Disc Golf
Pros: Short Course
Very Nice Scenery
Cons: Too Many Trees
Unmarked Holes on the Back Nine
Other Thoughts: I think that they should mark the holes on the back nine, but other than that it is a very nice course that I love to play.

waste of time
Pros: The course has nice baskets... that's about it.
Cons: Signage is really bad. It took us almost an hour just to find the first pin. The course length is extremely small. It's good for someone who just started playing yesterday or if you'd like to practice driving with your putter. There is nowhere to park near the first tee.
Other Thoughts: I feel like these nice Innova baskets are being wasted on such a dismal course.

Pros: The course is very well designed with a wide range of difficulty in the 9 holes. Since the course is in Legacy Park, the landscaping and maintenance is excellent. The baskets are all brand new and the tee boxes are well marked and easy to find with tee signs showing the Par, Distance and a map of the hole..
Cons: Only Legacy Park residents and their guests are allowed to play on this course.
Other Thoughts: This is a great family friendly course designed for casual and advanced players. I saw another review that criticized the proximity of the walking trails. I think having the course close to the trails is great, in all the times I have played there was never any issues with course play interfering with walkers or non players.

Pros: Legacy Park hosts a cozy little 9 hole course set in a nice neighborhood park. Short holes are the staple here while only a couple of holes hint that you'll need a driver. Hole four asks for a big anhyzer shot beside tight woods on the right with plenty of wide open area to fade off to the left if you can't keep it turning. At other times the course relies on comparatively tight fairways for a challenge. They'll ask for some strait shots with a precise finish and won't allow big hyzer/anhyzer shots for distance. Occasional thick rough off the fairways will keep you honest and thinking about a careful drive. Water comes into play on a couple holes, namely six and nine. And speaking of six, I'd say it's the nicest hole on the course. It's a longer than usual hole playing through some mature trees and finishing with the creek behind the basket.
A map welcomes you to the course and points you in the right direction to get started. Red 6"x6" bricks/blocks set flush in the ground mark the natural tee pads. Brand new Innova Discatchers are easy to spot and are numbered on the front and back of the baskets. You'll find easy navigation with just a little searching for the blocks/tee pads your first trip out.
The course is in a really nice setting with A+ maintenance. Being that it's a neighborhood park, grass is always cut and has nice landscaping. I enjoyed an early morning round with lots of wildlife too. I saw deer, rabbits, squirrels, and lots of birds.
Cons: SAFETY - I thought there we're some safety issues as there are several opportunities to accidentally hit pedestians/park users. Holes seven, eight, and nine are probably the worst as the fairways are actually walking paths. To top it off, the baskets are placed near blind curves. Holes two and five also play near paths but at least you can see people coming.
Hole nine finished up in a somewhat inconvenient spot. Though close to hole one, it finishes on the opposite side of the creek and about halfway between the two bridges. This means you'll either backtrack to hole seven's tee pad (near a bridge) or continue walking forward to the other bridge. Either way, it is a longer than expected walk.
Being that it's a private course, your only chance to play will be if you are invited/accompanied by a Legacy Park homeowner.
Other Thoughts: I think some "watch for flying discs" signs would be useful in some areas on the course.
This is a very nice park area and I can see how disc golf will fit in nicely in this town park community. Hopefully other large neighborhoods will add course in the future as well.
Be aware that this is really a neighborhood recreational/family level course. Advanced players may not find the same challenge they are used to seeing on bigger, longer courses.
For a fun family course I'd give it a 3.5 but for average DGCR user's expectation I'll give it a 2.5
