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 4.2 out of 5 by 120 reviewers.
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
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Course I enjoyed the golf course and the greens were excellent. July 29, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by 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
Rated 3 out of 5 by 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.
