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 championship course Good course and fun to play. Staff very friendly. Lots of sand but that's part of the challenge. April 9, 2014
Freguent player still recommends I have been playing Tanglewood for 20+ years and still enjoy both courses. The chanpionship course is always a challenge. The greens are perfect and fast however the course needs work with trees and debries after the last winter storm. Some of the bunkers are also inconsistent. Give it a couple of weeks and they should have those issues fixed. March 25, 2014
Good Stuff For the time of year - course was in good shape... great staff - very helpful and welcoming! Can't wait to come back in peak of season! March 24, 2014
Tanglewood Championship course Played course right after ice storm ,lots of tree limbs on ground. I have no problem with that,it will get cleaned up,however the condition of the sand bunkers ,some of which had no sand period...was not good.this is a great course but should be closed until clean up and bunkers repaired.Staff was great !

course is long and bunker play is challenging Course was undergoing recovery from huge ice storm, but there were very few problems to deal with. Staff did amazing job of making everything work for us to play. can't wait to go back and play when everything is in top shape and everything is green. Thumbs up. March 10, 2014
Better bring your A-game Extremely challenging course, particularly from the tips. Undulating greens and bunkers galore will make a man out of you to say the least. Two par 3's over 230 yards, both over water, and par 4's long enough to be considered par 5's anywhere else. RTJ had a mindset of "easy bogey, hard par" when designing the course and well, he succeeded in that. Bottom line: if you have an advanced game, you'll love the challenge, however, the average golfer will have a very long, tough day. February 26, 2014
Good challenge, great value. Played on super GolfNow rate. Nice condition for winter play. Don't miss a chance to play it. But, bring your sand wedge with over 100 bunkers. February 2, 2014
Outstanding greens, varied holes, good warmup area Outstanding public facility, excellent greens, nice warmup area. Pick the right tees for a memorable experience. November 8, 2013
