Tanglewood Championship Course Still Tough
Lee Trevino edged Jack Nicklaus by 1 stroke to win the 1974 PGA Championship here. There course has not gotten any easier. Played the blue tees not knowing what to expect. The 467 yard par 4 #2 answered that question in a hurry. With 98 bunkers the course plays tough. It is a lot of fun though. Would play it again but maybe move up a set of tees.

This course is a chance to see what the old guard of Trevino,Palmer, Nicklaus were challenged with 40 years ago.
The Championship course is loaded with traps and fairway nuances that reward accuracy. The "tips" remain a challenge not always answered by a long drive. The women's tee is much more fair on distance than the typical championship style course thus making a good mix for couples wanting to play a solid track. Both courses are within an exceptional public park area.

Old school style
The course designed by RTJ is challenging with many many bunkers strewn throughout the course.
The course is in "okay" condition - it has seen better days. Still, if you are in the area and want to experience an old style classic layout then play this course.

The course is visually stunning.
Overall the course was amazing! This was my first time playing the championship course. I definitely will be coming back.

Short game is vital
There are a ton of sand traps, so be prepared to add some strokes to your game.

Played the back tees and it's definitely a challenging track. Good mix of birdie holes and challenging holes. Biggest reason I didn't give it 5-stars is because the bunkers were a disaster. There are lots of them and for the most part they were just hard red clay/dirt and not much sand at all.
Not a great practice area. Range was really beat up and there really isn't anywhere to practice your short game, as the putting green doesn't allow chipping. Overall, it was definitely a good value and I'd play there again. Course definitely has a lot of potential should they find the budget to make some changes.

I grew up playing this course and conditions were good. There were a lot of divots in the greens that were not repaired. Overall the greens were true and faster than expected. The fairways were in good condition and most of the tee boxes were as well. Pace of play was slow especially on the back 9. Enjoyed the round but it was hard to get in a rhythm with the long wait between shots.
