Date: 2013-Jun-05 Review by Dan P
    The original Owen Sound Golf & Country Club was a 9 hole design by Stanley Thompson. It was expanded to 18 holes in 1975 with perhaps two of the holes remaining as Thompson's original design. During your course of play you'll notice that the greens on the front nine are larger than the back although the speed and contours are very comparable.
    Legacy Ridge has some tight fairways and most are bordered by mature trees. I found the front to be tighter than the back. You can feel Stanley Thompson's influence on the par 3's as he usually selected the location to build these holes first.
    I got fooled on the par 5 5th as I normally would go for the green in two but I had an uphill lie such that I though I wouldn't be able to achieve the distance. I laid up with a 5 iron. Wrong! A ditch crossing the fairway at my layup distance collected my ball. So much for having a yardage book and not using it.
    The par 3 #8 has a severely elevated tee that is difficult to judge club distance.
    The one hole on the course that doesn't fit well is the par 4 9th. It feels tight off the tee although it is quite short at just over 300 yards.
    Hole #11 is a sharp dogleg left with an uphill climb to the green. You'll need to hit a good tee shot to the bend to have any hope of making par.
    The 18th finishes right alongside the clubhouse where patrons can closely watch the closing hole. The closeness of the clubhouse may be a bit intimidating for some.
    On course I could only find 150 yard markers. Signage at each tee box was top notch.
    The bunkers are very firm but both the greens, fairways, and rough were all in great shape.
    Legacy Ridge feels like it played longer than the scorecard indicated. I'm not sure this feeling was brought on by the milder weather, the lies I was encountering, or me.
    Legacy Ridge is a worthy play!
