The Legacy Golf Club in Las Vegas (Henderson) on Green Valley Parkway and Wigwam has been sold. The final price was probably the lowest in recent Las Vegas history: $1.5 Million. Currently, the course is closed and so is the practice facility which was the best one in the city.
As it sits, the course needs around $800,000 in cart path repair. I've been told the new owner will probably ask for an increase to HOA fees. Until that happens, there is no plan to reopen the course.
The future of another Vegas course is also unclear. Rhodes Ranch Golf Course is now up for sale. The asking price is right around $5 million.
Best practice facility in the city?? Maybe if you've only played legacy.
Which one is better?
TPC, Paiute, Boulder Creek are the three I like the most. Within 20 minutes of anyone. They all have balls with dimples, a bunker with sand, more than four targets and much better greens.
Within 20 minutes my a**, lol. It takes me 38 minutes to get to Paiute when I'm stomping the pedal at 80-90mph. Boulder Creek takes about 30 and TPC, takes about the same. It took me 11 minutes to get to Legacy on average.
It may have not been the best in the city but it was definitely one of the better public practice facilities. My home course. I'm planning to start practicing at Revere now, which is a decent practice area but I'm not a fan of their range.
Anyway, sucks it closed because it was close to home. When Silverstone and Badlands closed it wasn't a big deal because I rarely played those courses but I'm bummed now it happened to Legacy! Hopefully they reope it back up in the future.
Not to mention that Boulder Creek isn't even IN Las Vegas. LOL
I love Paiute, but it's a journey. You don't just jump in your car and head over to Paiute. It's all the way out at the Indian Reservation.
I agree that the range at Revere isn't very good. Bears Best has a good practice area but it's also a long drive. TPC is real nice, but it's a drive for me also.
Aside from the privates, I've played every course in this city with the exception of Southshore. I don't remember seeing a better practice area anywhere. Hopefully Legacy will reopen.
