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!

Slow golf on a Sunday afternoon I was the first time out at Tanglewood and I didn't know that you first have to pay a parking fee before entering the park property. But it was worth the $2 extra. The starter was very friendly and extremely knowledgeable about the course. He let me play as a single and gave me good advice. The layout and landscape is really very nice. There are only 2 things to complain about. Fivesomes including young kids were allowed to play the Championship Course on a Sunday afternoon. Play was extremely slow! Secondly, the plenty of bunkers and traps would need some new sand. It was hard to play out of the traps. Despite these two issues I enjoyed it. Overall a great golf course. May 17, 2015
Great layout You can see that this course was a top course in the 80s. Very challenging around the greens with some great holes. A must try for all golfers. Greens were in great nick. May 17, 2015
Great Course to play! The championship course is an excellent layout, and was in pretty good shape for the lack of rain they have gotten recently. Pace of play was good even as a single at 10am. The course is pretty challenging with lots of bunkers and fast greens. Be sure to keep it in play here, or you will certainly pay the price. Great value! May 16, 2015
The layout is second to none! I really enjoyed the layout. The greens were in really great shape. The fairways were consistent and very good as well. It rained hard the day before I played and there was no real evidence of wet conditions other than the sand in the bunkers being firm and damp. Many challenging drives and approach shots. Being on target into the greens will yield birdies. May 3, 2015
Nice course Greens rolled smooth and fast. Bunkers everywhere with red clayish sand. Get out of position and you are in trouble. Fun course for the player that likes to position shots. April 7, 2015
Gorgeous Day for Golf! We played the Championship Course at Tanglewood Park for the first time on an absolutely beautiful day! The course was in excellent condition. Tee boxes and fairways were lush and green. Greens were somewhat fast and in great shape. Played our round in less than 4 hours despite hitting many of the course's 98 bunkers. Staff was very friendly. Great value at $23! Will definitely play again. April 3, 2015
Tons o' sand Excellent golf course, target golf. You need your A game for this one. Very enjoyable, if your game is off you will get tons of sand practice. Only complaint is sand is inconsistent. April 1, 2015
Great Value great Course Played late and caught afternoon special. Could not believe the value of this course. 36 hole facility. Played both over 2 days. The Championship Course is a wonderful Robert Trent Jones golf course. It hosted the 1974 PGA Championship. The golf course was in great shape for the time of year and you can tell that course is well maintained year round. Great setting in Reynolds Park . Very scenic course. Greens were great.
