Tanglewood Golf Club
A True "Championship" Golf Course
This is a true Championship golf course, framed by tree-lined fairways that define this picturesque, parkland course. The course conditions were excellent and the experience was enhanced by a perfect early fall day under Carolina blue skies. But be prepared, as this is a course that also presents a golfing challenge that will test you from begining to end, and demands your A game if you hope to post a decent score. From the tee accuracy is at premium due to the bermuda rough, and several holes demand length to set up good approach. Tanglewood also rewards the ability to work the ball off the tee, notably at #4, #5, #9, #12, and #17. The Championship course also demands well struck iron shots, as deep bunkers surround most greens waiting to swallow any mishits. The greens are also tiered and segmented into generally 3 distinct putting areas, so approaching the correct pin position is critical. Rare opportunity to play a Major Championship course that remains capable of testing even the best players.

Great conditioned Course
This is the second time I played this course and it has been well maintained and difficult for me both times. You need to be a decent driver of the ball. Slicers will not do well here. Not because the holes are straight or turn right to left but because if you miss the fairways you will be in for a long day. The slopes in the fairways and elsewhere make the course very challenging. The rough is also brutal. If I missed the green, the rough was deep and made it very tough to get the ball up and down. Still, for the quality of the course, the green fee was very fair. The driving range and the practice green were immaculate. Unfortunately, the course greens had been aerated recently and, the starters assurances notwithstanding, the greens were very bumpy.

timing is everything
A great classic layout with a PGA Tour heritage. I wish we had not hit it when the greens had been punched less than two weeks before and they had overseeded three days before. Still well maintained, and a challenge to play when you're in your 60's and its cart path only.

Excellent Course, Beautiful Day
First time playing the Championship Course at Tanglewood. Great layout - easy to imagine the PGA Championship being there in 1974. The course is in terrific condition - the only drawback being they had just aerated the greens. Challenging holes that test everyone's ability. This course is a lot of fun to play.

Paid $14.00 and it was too much for the course and condition, nice layout, but horrible shape...worse I've played in my 40 years of golfing and worse in the area.

Beautiful course that is well maintained except for the sand traps. There was a very thin layer of loose sand which played more like hardpan. This course has almost every green surrounded by multiple traps. requires fairly precise shots to hit the green, so if you have trouble hitting on line, lay up.
Nice facility. I like the Champions course much better the Reynolds

With not many folks on the course on a late weekday afternoon, played from the back tees just for "fun". Played 16 sand shots in 18 holes, fired a smooth 95, and can't wait to come back! The course is BIG, and the property/terrain is awesome. I thought it was in very good condition for a public course; yes, the sand bunkers were more like dirt bunkers... but hey, you're not supposed to hit'em there! Absolutely would not miss the opportunity to experience this course if you're in the area.
