Pros: - Excellent navigation
- Clean, accurate signs
- Concrete tees
- Great variety of shots and distances from the tee
- Well-kept park with clean restrooms
Cons: - May not be challenging enough for advanced players, as holes tend to be short-to-medium range, with one or two exceptions (and varying by pin placement).
Other Thoughts: Legacy Park is one of my favorite courses. I consider myself an intermediate player, and can consistently shoot in the 60-ish range. Most holes are forgiving if you have a poor initial drive. Lots of wide open shots. Only a couple "blind" shots where you can't see the basket from the tee. A few are over 400 feet, a few are closer to 200. Most are somewhere in between those numbers. There is some tall grass in spots, and a few fenced-in buildings owned by Lees Summit Parks & Rec where you could easily throw your disc away, but even a mediocre drive will keep you safe there. Wind tends to be a factor here, as most of the course, especially the front 9, is wide open. The word seems to be out about this course, so plan on meeting many friendly faces when you go.

This is one of my go-to courses when I have some time off and am looking to have a good time flinging discs. I think you'll love it as well.

Pros: First 11 holes are very wide open followed by 8 holes that are shorter but more technical. Good mixture of holes. Good use of elevation change. Easy to navigate with good signs that describe the hole and easy to find the next hole. Good mixture of very long to very short holes.
Cons: A few blind Tee's so always check fairway. Grass is thick.
Other Thoughts: There was no "wow" factor and while the course was nice to play it was not the most attractive course in the area. Pro's would tear this course apart but for AM's this course is challenging and fun.

 Not Bad

Pros: Nice baskets and tee -pads. Clean and easy to navigate. Good mix of shots. Some very challenging holes.
Cons: Deep rough in the summer. Thorn Trees. On the back section there is a lot of rocky ground that can damage your discs.
Other Thoughts: This is a solid course but has no wow factor.

Pros: Variety, on the front nine you have distance and some shot shaping holes. When set up long the front nine can wear you down in a good way. A couple par 4 (3 long, 4 long, 8 long) is always nice to have in a park. On the back nine you can start with distance on 10 but then nice short park and putt holes with great fairways. Parks and rec does a great job with trashcans benches and overall clean park. You can choose to play 9 at a time both loops end up in parking lot.
Cons: On the front nine a couple of holes a little bland. Not all tee signs are completely accurate in distance. Watch out on front 9 as tall grass + blind shots = looking for discs
Other Thoughts: Watch out for thorny trees lots in this area. In the summer keep an eye on your disc long grass will eat them up. I like mowed fairways looks cool and saves money. As takers of parks and rec we should never complain about mowing as we pay no greens fees. But at legacy it is almost always windy so i choose blue springs or p-hill. Cool side note i play a final 9 safari so if you want challenge start on 10. 10-12 par 4, 13-14 par 4, 15alt to 15 par 3 or 4, 16-17 par 3, 18 to practice basket par 4, 1-2 par 4, 2-3 par 4 or 5, 4-7 par 3 or 4, 8-9 par 5, Typically get a par 36 on 9 holes based on pin positions

 Great Beginner Course

Pros: A great course for beginners and has some challenges for intermediate players. Most of the first 9 holes are out in the open with a few trees. Holes 4 has a wicked hill to through up with a wall of bushes separating you from the basket. The Hole 10 is a great 500 footer. Holes 11 - 18 are wooded and provide some good challenges at the end of the game.
Cons: Thorny Locust Trees everywhere!! What were they thinking. They are all young saplings that were just planted. Wear some thick shoes (I wear hiking boots when I play there) otherwise you might get a nice thorn in you foot.
Other Thoughts: The restrooms are a nice touch. Also since there is no water (lakes) it is a really good beginner course. You don't have to worry about losing a disc. (Except on hole 3 where the road is close. You might nail a car, but you'll get the disc back)

 Long course on "B" hole locations

Pros: Great tee boxes, easy to navigate course. Bag hangers at every tee box.
Cons: None really.
Other Thoughts: Played on Columbus Day with my father and my son. Holes were set-up with "B" locations which made each hole extra long. Not being a big driver really hurt, but that isn't the course's fault.

Pros: Well designed course. Layed out in such a way that finding the next tee pad was not challenging. Benches at each hole. Course fairway was well groomed. Challenging play for me (a beginner) as well as boyfriend (tournament player)

Cons: Little shade available for first13 holes.
Thorny trees on the back 9 holes.. Be Careful!!
Some of the rough was a little too rough. Keep an eye on your disc or get a spotter for some of the holes.
Other Thoughts: First time playing this course. Not sure why more don't play here.

After playing the long, in the sun, wide open front 9 you end up back at the parking lot where there are bathrooms, water fountains and a pavilion to sit under while you cool off a bit. After you finish up at 18 you are just a short walk away from the parking lot

Pros: Well maintained multiple skill level course. Both beginner and advanced players will find enjoyable aspects here. Multiple pins with a lot of varying distance. Many of the short positions are half of their long counterparts making this one of the most distance adaptable courses in the area. Pins were set in a mixed configuration giving a nice mix of ace runs and long bombs. Good, albeit not great balance of open and wooded. Logical flow and spacious tee boxes. Bathrooms on site. Not overly crowded.
Cons: It's a very new course and a very new park, and has that raw, unseasoned feel to it. This is most apparent on the mostly wide open Front 9 (and I mean WIDE open as the pictures will illustrate). A few of the holes, especially to some of the short positions can be kind of bland (things improve after hole 11). Unless you land in a thicket, a bad drive here can often be forgiven. I love the woodsier section, but I hate getting it all at once near the end. Thistles everywhere.
Other Thoughts: Legacy is kind of like the Prairie Center of the east side. With this course and the nearby Pleasant Hill (Lake Shore) course opening in the last couple years, and with a course soon to be opening in Blue Springs, the east suburbs are starting to get some long needed courses. Legacy just needs some time to ripen into what I think will be an area favorite. The trees need some time to grow, and when they do the rating will improve. A bit of a drive from the more well known courses towards the center of the metro, but worth it. An excellent addition to KC disc golf. I'll be back.
