Designed by golf legend Jack Nicklaus and his son Jack Nicklaus II, the par-72 Legacy Course stretches 7,386 yards from the black markers and meanders through mangrove swamps bordering the Pulai River. The wide, undulating fairways and superbly-shaped greens are turfed with lush Paspalum Platinum, while sprawling waste areas, sculptured bunkers and large lakes add form and challenge to the course. In typical Nicklaus fashion, multiple tees ensure playability for all levels of golfers.
The waste areas and abundant use of palm trees in the landscaping lend a desert-like feel to the course, reminiscent of golf in the Middle East. The practice facilities are top-class as well, featuring a turf driving range along with large putting and chipping greens.
Nicklaus Design is one of the largest course designing offices. The first course designed by Nicklaus, Harbour Town Golf Links, has been launched into use in 1969. In the early years, he usually cooperated with such world famous course designers as Pete Dye or Desmond Muirhead in his works.
