Took my exec s out to show off the course on kingsland. I always call to check conditions. To "great shape." Not great but ok. What was disappointing was not being told that 2 of their really signature holes on the front the tough part 4 just before the usually beautiful over the water par 3 were now shortened to mediocre status due to them selling land for waterfront condos. I would really like to have known that before bringing my golfers there. It was lousy. This course is off our list to play.Really felt lied to by the staff.

aside from the two hole redesign, the course was in excellent condition with good fairways, manageable rough, and WONDERFULL greens. Staff were scarce but helpful. A great improvement over earlier in the summer when there were no fairways and staff didn't seem to care. Well worth playing now!

I have played this course several times. The course is in good shape and the greens are better than I have ever seen, the rains have helped a lot. Holes 7 bunkers are washed out and 8 has temp green. Golf now rate is higher than comparable courses in the area . I would also play more if they had a golf now twilight offering. Overall good experience. Starter move me ahead

I was disappointed in the grass height just off the fairway - too tall. Easy to lose a ball unless you happen to get right over it and that is within 10 feet of the fairway short grass.

After playing vaaler creek and Delaware springs the two previous days, I was relatively disappointed with Legends. The course, while still in overall really good shape, had one par 3 under repair with temporary green and also had areas of greens on other holes that were less than ideal. After playing the other courses, which were in immaculate shape, I had expected more. It didn't help that Legends was more expensive than Vaaler and Delaware but also played Legends on Saturday morning so to be expected. Overall I enjoyed the round but had higher hopes.

was not sure what to expect, first time to play this course. last reviews were from over a year ago and complained about poor greens. well greens were in very good condition. fairways were green and brown, but in good condition considering this is first of august and no rain since may. two holes are 7 and 8 are going thru change. 7 getting new green location and 8 a par 3 is being completely moved to allow for homes in both cases since this part of course overlooks Colorado river. I will be back.

Great layout and great course when in good condition. Was in terrible conditions when we played. Every green had crabgrass and or fungus. The course also needs water on the fairways. Hate to lose this course but if it is not fixed I will certainly not be back.

The course was recommended to me by someone playing another course. Having made the trip out it was with the trip. Great views, great scenery. Course was in really good shape but as stated in some reviews I had read some greens need work as they have lost pRt of them, having said that they were receptive on iron shots, fairways smooth and easy to hit off. All in all a trip worth taking. Will be back again

We really liked this course and will certainly be back. For the Burnet - Marble Falls - Kingsland area, it's definitely one you need to play.

The driving range and putting green were both quite ample.

The grass was cut very nice on tee boxes, fairways, first cut rough, and greens. However, there were some dried out spots on several tee boxes, fairways, and greens. Then again, it's the middle of August and the central Texas drought continues. So I can't really blame them.

There are just a few spots where water can get you. The course has a good amount of fairway and greenside bunkers -- mostly puzzle piece shaped with decent lips to get over. I did find that several of these bunkers had too many rocks in them; some larger than golf balls. So be careful.

You actually end up back by the club house after #6 in case that's useful. You then get back at the normal turn of #9. There was also one restroom located on the back 9 between 14 & 15.

There were plenty of water jugs on the course. They were a little smaller than the normal ones I'm used to seeing. And on this hot day, most were running out of water. Seeing as how we were one of maybe three groups on the course this afternoon, they may not have filled these up enough. We'll let it slide today ... but I'll talk to the clubhouse staff if it happens on our next visit. No worries.

And finally, #13 has a greenside bunker with a good sized oak tree in the middle -- probably the first time I've seen anything like that. Interesting to say the least.

Very friendly & eager to please staff. Played on Sunday afternoon & pace of play was ideal for foursome of moderate ability. Great value. Greens slower than normal but recent (& RARE) July rains contributed. Wide landing areas.

Fairly challenging course. Helps if you are a long hitter. The course is in very good shape and fairly open fairways. Lot of fairway sand traps so be mindful of that. Good value for the $$$. Would play it again.
