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!

T'wood doesn't disappoint Consistency. That's what Tanglewood's Championship course delivers. Greens are always firm, quick and true, and challenging as well. Fairways are generally wide and forgiving, but bring your sand game. Played 18 holes in four hours on a busy Sunday afternoon. Bunkers could use more sand; that would be my only criticism. Best golf deal going in the area. March 9, 2015
Greeat Day Great course, and very nice people all around, weather was beautiful finally for our winter. March 9, 2015
Tanglewood I have played Tanglewood before and I think it is a great course. This time the weather was very poor and I plan to come back when the weather is better. February 14, 2015
Tanglewood Championship course Way to much golf course for my skills. I would like to play it again when the wind was under 20 mph. It is definitely a champions course. February 10, 2015
championship That's why they call it the championship course. Very well laid out and a great design. You will be very impressed. Don't play the back tees unless you are on your A game. February 9, 2015
Poor customer service We arrived an hour ahead of our 12:30 tee time to hit some balls and warm up. We were not notified of the "30 minute" delay due to frost until we arrived to the first tee and was informed by the started. This delay resulted in us teeing off at 1:15 and not being able to complete our round because of slow play. By the third hold we were waiting on every shot and there was a full hole open ahead. The group ahead of us was 3 seniors and one youth that was apparently getting lessons because one guy told him every shot what he needed to do then took time to explain what he did wrong each time. Ranger was informed but nothing was done about it. Course was OK for the time of year but it seemed that no one playing there knew about repairing greens because there were ball marks everywhere. Will try it again in the spring and not around a holiday. December 27, 2014
Very good playablity Almost excellent greens. They were a little beat up. December 15, 2014
BRING YOUR A GAME Playing the correct tees is key for this course. Being a par 70 even 6100 can make the par 4's long. There are a lot of bunkers most of which are in good shape with avg sized undulating greens. If you can't putt, expect a high number. Course is well maintained and laid out. December 6, 2014
