"Incredible shot values" explain the fatal attraction to this Rees Jones "target"-style track, which is "pretty" and plush" but "challenging" in a schizophrenic way, with "front and back nines like two different worlds"; given a "staff that's not all stuck-up" and "nice practice facilities", even the "many long carries over the desert" and the "added housing developments" don't dissuade daredevils who declare that they "like it much better than" its swankier, saner neighbors.

Profile: Located in North Scottsdale adjacent to Troon, Legend Trail with holes named "Painted Desert", "Water Chant" and "Good Medicine", the par 72, 6,700 yard championship layout captures the spirit and the atmosphere of the surrounding Sonoran desertscape. Architect Rees Jones has designed this excellent signature course in Legend Trail. Set at 3,000 feet elevation and traversing through large stands of saguaro cactus, Legend Trail is both challenging and a highly memorable golf experience.
