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!

Tanglewood 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. September 14, 2014
Great course 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 September 2, 2014
Loved it 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. September 1, 2014
Another great opportunity! I appreciate and enjoy any opportunities that I have to play golf and enjoy the wonderful outdoor atmosphere. Tanglewood Golf course offer you just amazing experience and excellent grounds to enjoy the lovely game of golf. Thank you again and I look forward to visiting with you again. August 25, 2014
Tanglewood Championship Course Still Tough Lee Trevino edged Jack Nicklaus by 1 stroke to win the 1974 PGA Championship here. There course has not gotten any easier. Played the blue tees not knowing what to expect. The 467 yard par 4 #2 answered that question in a hurry. With 98 bunkers the course plays tough. It is a lot of fun though. Would play it again but maybe move up a set of tees. August 20, 2014
This course is a chance to see what the old guard of Trevino,Palmer, Nicklaus were challenged with 40 years ago. The Championship course is loaded with traps and fairway nuances that reward accuracy. The "tips" remain a challenge not always answered by a long drive. The women's tee is much more fair on distance than the typical championship style course thus making a good mix for couples wanting to play a solid track. Both courses are within an exceptional public park area. August 14, 2014
Old school style The course designed by RTJ is challenging with many many bunkers strewn throughout the course. The course is in "okay" condition - it has seen better days. Still, if you are in the area and want to experience an old style classic layout then play this course. August 14, 2014
The course is visually stunning. Overall the course was amazing! This was my first time playing the championship course. I definitely will be coming back. August 12, 2014
