Located on the south side of this majestic property is the Ussher’s Creek course, one of Golf Architect Thomas McBroom’s finest masterpieces. This challenging and breathtaking course features thick stands of deciduous trees, wetland hazards, knee-high fescue rough, and impeccable conditioning from tee to green. These all combine to make Ussher’s Creek a classic parkland course.
Thomas McBroom set the course softly on the land with flowing lines, moderately sized greens with slight folds, and strategic bunkering to create targets and intricate turns. This course offers a nice contrast to its counterpart, Battlefield, while still providing a great challenge for every level of golfer. The large amount of land allowed McBroom the rare luxury of creating a meandering course that promotes a feeling of privacy and keeps adjacent foursomes hidden from sight.
The imposing Battlefield course is located on the north side of the Legends on the Niagara property.
The Battlefield course features a nice mix of wide, links style holes with generous undulating fairways and greens that are bound by dense forest and brush.
The bunkers on the Battlefield course are particularly treacherous, as high lips and grass walls make recoveries from errant tee shots and approach shots quite difficult. Even with the deep bunkers, the fairways sweep across a gently contoured countryside that gives the golfer some breathing room both off the tee and as they approach the green.
