Battlefield, located on the north side of the Legends on the Niagara property, is Golf Architect Douglas Carrick's unique and challenging creation. Host to the 2004 BMO Financial Group Canadian Women's Open, Battlefield features fairways that sweep across a gently contoured countryside, giving the golfer breathing from both off the tee and as they approach the green.
Ussher's Creek, on the south side, is one of Thomas McBroom's finest masterpieces. You'll encounter thick stands of deciduous trees, wetland hazards, knee-high fescue rough, and impeccable conditioning from tee to green.
The perfect complement to the larger Legends courses, Chippawa is a 9-hole design that celebrates the village in which Legends on the Niagara is located. The friendly staff add to the welcoming effect Chippawa course offers each and every guest, whether they are a regular or new to Legends on the Niagara.

Nice size and shape. Some contours, but not overly taxing. Good speed and condition.
Nothing to complain about from me.
Great shape! Fairways are a good size with nice rolling mounds.
Four sets of tees on each course ranging from 5500 to over 7100 yards.
Tees on par 3s were a little scuffed and a few were uneven but generally in good shape.
Two extremely nice tracks.
I was particularly impressed with the bunker placement on Battlefield. Between the four of us we were in no less than 17 bunkers. Not that there's an abundance of sand but it is strategically placed.
The finishing hole on Battlefield can make or break a game. From tee shot to finish there's challenge.
I didn't find Ussher's Creek to have quite the same charm as Battlefield. The Starter thought Ussher's Creek was more of a challenge but I'd go back for Battlefield.
Beautiful location and built on a huge parcel of land. The drive in to the Clubhouse is quite a hike.
Fairly pricey with both course being priced the same. Over $100 on weekends but much more reasonable during weekdays.
Both courses present a good challenge for an average golfer. It's very easy to have a bad hole pushing upward to double digits if you're on the beach or flirt with water.
Pleasant, although not spectacular unless you're around the Clubhouse.
Starter was a great help with lots of advice.
Waitress was slow and forgetful. We had an hour between games and it seemed all of it was chewed up with tardiness.
Pro Shop has a good selection of clothing but not much in the way of golf supplies (beyond golf balls).
One of the nicest Clubhouses you'll ever see. The design and location is ideal. Sitting on the patio you can see the finishing holes of Battlefield's front and back 9. The Clubhouse is two stories so you can get an elevated view.
One of the best tracks to follow. Stay on the path and you can't get lost.
Both Battlefield and Ussher's Creek offer the same type of course conditions. However, both courses are different. Ussher's Creek is a little more forested but I found Battlefield more challenging because of the bunker placement. I especially like hole #9 and #18 on Battlefield.
I recommend renting the GPS system during play. It's worth the money and good for the entire day.

Battlefield and Ussher Creek are two very nice courses. The greens are both courses were very good. Well maintained and challenging enough to ensure you stay focused on your putting.
Very well maintained fairly large fairways. Many links type holes allowed us to use our drivers on most par 4-5s. Grip it and rip it was encouraged
Very good variety that allowed for all level of golfers. We actually went up a color compared to other courses and didn't get punished
Most of the holes are the open links type but each course took us inside the tree line to offer some more restricted holes as well. The last two holes on each nine on Battlefield were a real treat and very challenging with lots of water hazards
We really enjoyed both courses. Over a hundred $ on weekends might be a little steep
Lots of water hazards and bunkers made both courses very challenging. You will do well if you're driving well. If you're not it's going to be a long day.
The scenery was quite nice especially the holes around the clubhouse.
The staff at the bag drop was pleasant and helpful. I really enjoyed our time at lunch in the clubhouse
The clubhouse is excellent. The two tier view overlooking the two signature holes on Battlefield was excellent. The restaurant, pro shop and change rooms were excellent
Get the portable GPS device. It was very useful
Two very good public courses that are in excellent shape and worth a play during a weekday. A bit expensive so I'd be looking for some sort of special offer before playing.
