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!

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. October 10, 2014
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. September 23, 2014
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. September 22, 2014
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. September 21, 2014
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
