About our Architect, Stanley Thompson

Golfers have loved the course at Legacy Ridge Golf Club since it first opened in 1920. Spanning 6,201 yards from the longest tees, the course was designed by famed golf course architect Stanley Thompson. This course layout manages the difficult double task of challenging experienced players while helping rookies relax as they learn this classic game.

We weren’t always Legacy Ridge. The story behind our new name.

When new ownership purchased this course, it wanted to begin anew, including a name change for this grande dame of golf. With the natural outcropping adjacent to the property – the ridge – and that fact that an honest-to-goodness, legendary genius of a golf architect gave shape and form to the course – what other name could we go by!
