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!

Fallen from Grace I've played this course over the years and like so many courses this has been on a decline due to the economy and declining revenue. I love the course layout, the history, the challenge but it needs a bit of love. The bermuda on the tees and several fairways is thin for this time of year. The greens are good, very soft so you can go after the pin but as a result the greens are scarred due to people not repairing ball marks. Traps are assorted, some have recently had top grade white sand like that at Augusta and others are basically red gravel. Overall, it is a good round but I'm sad to see this poor course age like it is without getting the love it deserves. July 15, 2014
Getting a little shabby around the edtes Tanglewood championship course is a real golf challenge, and it all comes around the greens. The course is covered with sand traps. Fairway traps re well situated to catch your slices, but it's easy enough to stay out of them. The greenside traps on the other hand, gobble up everything that doesn't hit the putting surface. Bring your best iron game. JUst getting on the green, however, isn't enough. Most are multi-tiered and have subtle breaks everywhere. The greens are in excellent shape, and a well hit putt will keep its line. Sadly, the care of the tee boxes and fairways seems to have fallen off, and they are not in great shape. There are lots of bare spots and weeds are creeping in. Too bad. this is a gem of a course that is now at risk at falling into B status. July 12, 2014
Great Course The course was fun to play and a good challenge. It was nice to play there and see the memorabilia from tour events in the past. We were treated well and had a good time. July 9, 2014
ray shelton no problem with the course itself. problem we had and the group in front of us is that our tee times were not received by course employees. "worked us in" and tried to charge me (again) for playing even after I had given them the receipt I had printed out. good thing I carried it with me. my first time using golfnow. will try it one more time and see if it is worth using in the future. very frustrating being told you don't have a tee time.......

Great course! It needs a little TLC. Some tee boxes were thin, fairway were nice. Greens rolled smooth but were a little slow. Overall great course, very challenging with tons of tradition! June 30, 2014
Good course lots of bunkers Great layout with nice greens, protected by plenty of bunkers. Played in the middle of the day 4 hour round. June 29, 2014
Bang for your buck Great conditions. Staff very informative and friendly. Course is tough but fair. Would recommend to all skill levels. June 28, 2014
Great Course Played here several times. Tanglewood Championship Course is a great course and a great challenge. It's far from an easy course. Don't come here expecting to pull out driver on every hole. Also, you may want to bring some sunscreen, a pale, and a shovel...b/c you will probably spend some time on the beach! Lots of bunkers and most of them come into play! Somehow, I found a tee time for $20, what a deal for this course! June 28, 2014
