Tanglewood Golf Club
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.

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.

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.

Short game is vital
There are a ton of sand traps, so be prepared to add some strokes to your game.

Played the back tees and it's definitely a challenging track. Good mix of birdie holes and challenging holes. Biggest reason I didn't give it 5-stars is because the bunkers were a disaster. There are lots of them and for the most part they were just hard red clay/dirt and not much sand at all.
Not a great practice area. Range was really beat up and there really isn't anywhere to practice your short game, as the putting green doesn't allow chipping. Overall, it was definitely a good value and I'd play there again. Course definitely has a lot of potential should they find the budget to make some changes.

I grew up playing this course and conditions were good. There were a lot of divots in the greens that were not repaired. Overall the greens were true and faster than expected. The fairways were in good condition and most of the tee boxes were as well. Pace of play was slow especially on the back 9. Enjoyed the round but it was hard to get in a rhythm with the long wait between shots.

I agree w/igotthisone
igotthisone pretty much nailed it with the review. The layout is very good, I mean it's hosted PGA & Senior events but the was years ago. No sand bottles for divots. Greens good but but unfixed ball marks (players fault but...). GolfNow discount made it a good value and the deer roaming around were nice/relaxing.

Championship layout by a master designer
A unique opportunity to play a public course that has hosted a major championship. The layout and design of this Robert Trent Jones masterpiece offer a true sense of what the pros face in a high caliber course which feels like it has the capability to still test the best players. The course is well bunkered from tee to green and requires accuracy and length from the tee, while the greens have multiple tiers which require careful club selection.
