Chad's Tips for #1
Par 4 - 431 Yards
Favor the right side on this hole from start to finish.  Avoid the green side bunker on the left as you approach the green if you want to have a good chance of making par.

Chad's Tips for #8
Par 4 - 387 Yards

Don't let the yardage here fool you...this is a challenging hole from start to finish.  Again, big hitters keep the driver in your bag.  A straight shot off the tee is a must here.  Play an extra club into this green to avoid coming up short in the waste bunker.  Par is a good score on this hole.
Chad's Tips for #18 - "The Bear"
Par 4 - 459 Yards
Voted - "The best finishing hole in Moore County, NC"
by Pinehurst Magazine
If you've never played Legacy you will soon understand why this hole is called "The Bear".  In order to hit this par 4 in two shots you better give it your best off the tee.  If your tee shot doesn't clear the hill you will have a decision to make on your second shot.  If you go for the green make sure to hit an extra club.  If the pin is in the back right side of the green you need at least two extra me.  Once your on the green most putts will break back toward the lake.  Par is a great score on this hole!
