Since the Championship course was opened in 1958, it has consistently ranked as one of the top public courses in the nation. This Robert Trent Jones layout which has ninety-nine bunkers was designed to test the best golfers in the world and fits Jones’s design philosophy of “easy bogey, hard par.” He believed that the long iron shot separated the championship golfer from the average golfer and created several holes with that in mind. The seventh and twelfth holes, both par 3’s, play over 230 yards from the back tees. The par 4 eleventh hole is 490 yards. Fortunately for the recreational golfer Jones built multiple teeing grounds to make the course enjoyable for all skill levels. The Championship course has a deep and rich tradition and has hosted some of the most prestigious golf tournaments in the world. In 1974, Lee Trevino edged Jack Nicklaus by one-shot to win the 56th PGA Championship. Sam Sneed who was 62 years old at the time finished tied for third. The USGA Amateur Public Links Championship was played in 1986 and won by current tour player Billy Mayfair. From 1987 to 2002 it was the home of the Senior PGA Tour’s Vantage Championship which was won by such notable names as Lee Trevino, Gary Player, Hale Irwin and Larry Nelson. Jim Colbert won a record three times. In 2002 Bruce Fleisher shot a 60 in the second round. Come and enjoy the experience of playing the course that was voted the #1 public course in the state by North Carolina Magazine and test your skills against the legends of the game!

traps and entrance fee If you like a course with 99 bonkers, this one's got em! And yes, I meant bonkers. Some are unavoidable but fun. Was not told of a $2 per car entrance fee. Never had that for golf. Our greens fee covers that. We made no use of the rest of the park. Exceptions should be made on this. A beautiful day and a nice place it was. Course charged us $49 and GolfNow quoted $39. It happens and I'm sure they'll straighten it out. October 20, 2014
Tanglewood Excellent course in great condition. I would recommend it to others. It is good value and worth the trip. October 19, 2014
1st Time Was referred to this course from one of my wifes managers. Great track. Single digit golfer. Course was in great shape, green speeds were up to par. Lots of history here. What a bargain. can't wait to play it again. October 19, 2014
A True "Championship" Golf Course This is a true Championship golf course, framed by tree-lined fairways that define this picturesque, parkland course. The course conditions were excellent and the experience was enhanced by a perfect early fall day under Carolina blue skies. But be prepared, as this is a course that also presents a golfing challenge that will test you from begining to end, and demands your A game if you hope to post a decent score. From the tee accuracy is at premium due to the bermuda rough, and several holes demand length to set up good approach. Tanglewood also rewards the ability to work the ball off the tee, notably at #4, #5, #9, #12, and #17. The Championship course also demands well struck iron shots, as deep bunkers surround most greens waiting to swallow any mishits. The greens are also tiered and segmented into generally 3 distinct putting areas, so approaching the correct pin position is critical. Rare opportunity to play a Major Championship course that remains capable of testing even the best players. October 10, 2014
Great conditioned Course This is the second time I played this course and it has been well maintained and difficult for me both times. You need to be a decent driver of the ball. Slicers will not do well here. Not because the holes are straight or turn right to left but because if you miss the fairways you will be in for a long day. The slopes in the fairways and elsewhere make the course very challenging. The rough is also brutal. If I missed the green, the rough was deep and made it very tough to get the ball up and down. Still, for the quality of the course, the green fee was very fair. The driving range and the practice green were immaculate. Unfortunately, the course greens had been aerated recently and, the starters assurances notwithstanding, the greens were very bumpy. September 23, 2014
timing is everything A great classic layout with a PGA Tour heritage. I wish we had not hit it when the greens had been punched less than two weeks before and they had overseeded three days before. Still well maintained, and a challenge to play when you're in your 60's and its cart path only. September 22, 2014
Excellent Course, Beautiful Day First time playing the Championship Course at Tanglewood. Great layout - easy to imagine the PGA Championship being there in 1974. The course is in terrific condition - the only drawback being they had just aerated the greens. Challenging holes that test everyone's ability. This course is a lot of fun to play. September 21, 2014
Tanglewood Paid $14.00 and it was too much for the course and condition, nice layout, but horrible shape...worse I've played in my 40 years of golfing and worse in the area. September 14, 2014
