The combined Legacy-Heathrow duo offers 36-holes of Tom Fazio and Ron Garl golf via a limited number of dual-access memberships. For some, the pairing combines the top-notch Fazio golf experience, 10,000 sq. ft. clubhouse and luxury men's locker room of Legacy with the full amenities of Heathrow - which include 13 tennis courts, Olympic-sized pool, fitness facility, and much more. The clubs have offerings for the avid low-handicap golfer or the new golfer just learning the game, as well as outstanding junior camps and programs including golf, tennis, and swimming. According to Nate Kalb, "There is now a totally unique offering in the North Orlando market: we have combined the two best private clubs in the Lake Mary, Heathrow, and Longwood areas." Mr. Kalb went on to say that "this is clearly the best private club value in Central Florida - members can get two top-notch clubs for a reasonable price."
