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!

Great Course I enjoyed the golf course and the greens were excellent. July 29, 2015
Old School Tanglewood is a step back in time. Facilities look the same as they were when the likes of Trevino, Player and Palmer graced its presence. Course is a tight heavily bunkered layout. Most of the traps are red clay with pebbles and rocks littered throughout. Greens roll fairly true and are well contoured but by no means unfair. Public play has taken its toll on them but nothing above the norm. Fairways were sparse with grass and several places looked re-sodded. Overall would say it's a great course to experience due to legacy but not somewhere I would play more than once a year just to say I did. Too many other good tracks surrounding here. July 26, 2015
Conditions are starting to slip up 1st time playing this course. Layout is excellent and very challenging. However, of the 90+ bunkers on the champions course, only about 15 of them had enough sand in them. attempting to play in most of the bunkers usually results in digging into some dirt or red mud. It also looked as if some of the bunkers had playground sand poured in them along with all of the rocks and pebbles on the playground. Greens are great and the fairways are in good condition as well. Will consider playing this course again in the fall but for the resources available to tanglewood park, the conditions are subpar and can't compete with the other nice public courses like forest oaks country club.

Greens aerator several weeks ago. The greens on this course were recently punched and putting was difficult to control with such bouncy rolls! June 8, 2015
Ranger Had a good time. very slow the course need ranger to keep up with slow play. June 8, 2015
Mediocre I came to Tanglewood with high expectations, but I am now extremely disappointed. I drove from just over 2 hours away to play a PGA caliber course but the condition of the course was absolutely horrible. Dead fairways and dead rough ran throughout the entirety of the course, maybe this was due to lack of rain. I would not recommend this course to anyone looking for a plush, better than average course. The only positive was the course layout, everything else was awful. You can spend the same amount of money and play a much nicer course in the Winston-Salem/ Greensboro area. June 7, 2015
A challenging but fun and worthwhile course I got a 3:16 tee time, and teed off shortly after that. I played in a threesome, from the blue tees. The clubhouse staff didn't know who I was supposed to be paired up with, so I just picked a couple of other people and played with them. Pace of play was very good in the first 9, but in the second 9 a slow foursome got in front of us somehow and made play seem excruciatingly slow (we waited every single hole). The whole round took 5 hours... the front 9 was 2hrs10mins, and the second 9 was 2 hrs40mins. The course was in good shape, though the greens were still recovering from aeration which made putting unpredictable. The course is pretty long, though there are only 2 par 5's and it plays to a par 70 instead of 72. The main thing I would note about the course is this: there are a lot of sandtraps! There are plenty of fairway traps and every green is heavily guarded by sand. It's a Bobby Jones course, and I've heard that he imagined the green as a castle that was guarded and you had to really attack it... You WILL be in the sand at some point (if not many) during the day. Also, the greens are large with quite a bit of undulation and movement to them. I really liked the greens, except that they were still recovering from aeration. I look forward to playing it again when I get the chance. I shot 42 front, 42 on the back, my first time there. I'll do better next time. The 18th hole is amazing... just wait til you see the green... awe & fear inspiring! Can't wait to take my Dad to play there when he comes to visit next. One extra note: take $2 cash, because the course is inside some kind of state park, and you have to pay a $2 entry fee. It's a big park with LOTS to do... (pool, volleyball, horseback riding, more).

TANGLEWOOD SURVIVES THE WINTER I have played numerous courses in the Triad this Spring and only a handful have any fairways to speak of. Tanglewood, Forest Oaks, and Gillespie managed to save their bermuda fairways through either rye seeding in the winter or in Gillespie's case, not spraying their weeds (which was a stroke of genius). At least 3 other courses have lost about 35% of their fairways. June 6, 2015
