Legacy on Lanier Golf

Return to a Golden Era in Golf

Lanier Islands Legacy Golf course is a brilliant throwback to classically-designed courses not dependent on length to challenge golfers. It is everything great courses are known for: beautiful to the eyes, challenging to the skills and memorable to the spirit…and when you get done, you will be yearning to return!

Rolling fairways, undulating greens and soft white sand—all without a house in sight to spoil the beauty of Lake Lanier. But it is the uncommon that makes this experience better. The engaging and cordial conversation with staff, attention to detail and complimentary snacks and beverages. Quiet and peaceful, teeming with wildlife, a round of golf along the lake-lined shores will leave golfers feeling like they escaped to a completely unique time and place.
