Jack Nicklaus Opens Renovated Legend Course At The Club At Ibis

On Dec. 13 Jack Nicklaus made an appearance at The Club at Ibis to officially repoen the Legend Course, which he built in 1991. 

The renovation features the changes in golf and Nicklaus’ design philosophy during the last quarter century. The par-72 course was lengthened from the tips by more than 300 yards to 7,442. The shortest tees measure slightly more than 4,500 yards. 

Nicklaus took out a lot of the waste areas he used to frame the original design as all of the greens were re-contoured and the fairways re-grassed. 

The Club at Ibis remains the only place in the world that features three golf courses by different members of the Nicklaus family. Jack Nicklaus II designed The Heritage and Steve Nicklaus designed The Tradition.
