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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by The course is going down the toilet Leaves all over the green. Slow play and did not finish November 14, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Highly disappointed. Went on a Friday afternoon hot deal for $20. That was the best part. HOWEVER, my playing partner and I only played 14 holes, the last of which took a grand total of 28, yes, 28 minutes. One hole. 22 of those minutes were spent watching videos on our phones sitting in the fairway while a foursome playing captains choice, and a twosome following them also playing that format, goofed off and had no concern for anyone but themselves. A 4.5 hr round only allowed a twosome to play 14 holes. From the first tee we followed a group until the turn, which took 2.5 hours. Passed them on 10 only to find out we couldn't go anywhere bc apparently they were just one of 5 foursomes in the same group. Bottom line, NEVER ONCE SEEN A RANGER. Pathetic experience for such a good course. Reported our frustrations to no avail. As if they couldn't care less. Won't be back. Suggest you stay away if you don't have a full day. The organization of the facility is lackluster to say the least. October 12, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by 9-10-15 review Played this the Championship course and think it is a really nice layout. Seemed like most of the elevation changes were uphill and require a club 10- 20 yards longer than the measured distance to the center. Greens are large. With a little more attention to the greens and tees this can be a very good course. September 11, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Tanglewood Nice layout and overall good course to play / fairways in the best of shape / greens need work as there are some weeds that are growing on the greens / lots of bunkers, but sand traps lack consistency / tee boxes could be in better shape considering resources available to keep it up / course is labelled as "Championship", but right now I would put it closer to "amateurism".

Rated 5 out of 5 by Championship Course Fairways were in great shape, the greens not so much... course looked good overall. August 31, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by What has happened to this gem?! I have been playing this course for years and have never seen it in such terrible condition! Weeds in the greens. Weeds in the bunkers. No sand in the bunkers. No water in the ball washers. And, the list goes on and on... Yes, the weather is partially to blame but the sense of neglect is unmistakeable. For $25, it was an enjoyable afternoon. For the full rack rate? Forget it! C'mon Tanglewood -- you're better than this! August 10, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very slow pace The slowest pace I've played in a very long time !!! August 9, 2015
