My son is a senior in high school, so during spring break we decided to play a course we had never played. Great experience! The only reason i rated conditions a 4 stars is that it was still dormant in the rough areas and some "spring cleaning" was being done on the course the day we were playing. The course was challenging but not to the point of breaking hearts of average golfers. My son is much better than I am and he scored about 12 strokes higher than his average at our home course.

I would definitely recommend this course to any experienced golfer. I do plan on going back this summer or fall.

I am sorry to say but the round was very disappointing.

The bunkers consisted of dirt and sand plus the dampness leads one to have a very difficult time chipping

In addition, one of the holes was closed and the following hole was converted from a par 4 to a 3.

We were not notified of such prior to playing and thus, the overall experience was just not up to PAR

Too, too many bunkers! They are everywhere. If you are not a single digit handicapper this course is a huge challenge. If you do not have the right mindset it will frustrate you, as every shot has to contend with sand. That being said I got a great deal from Golfnow and enjoyed the round. The layout other than the bunkers is excellent, and the fairways were green in many areas unlike some of the other courses around.

The course may be easier to play as the weather warms and the ball flies further. Pick the right tee box and this is still worth playing.

Far too many traps! This is something they are addressing, I just wish I’d known before selecting this course. If you're a player that shoots in the 90’s or more stay away, this isn’t the course for you.

This is a great course that I watched the pros play on in the senior vantage championship many times in the 90’s. I watched Arnold Palmer hit driver off the deck on #18 ( which is now #8), so it’s fun to play that same course myself today. Great layout, greens rolled awesome, but as everyone has said the bunkers need work. Not much sand in some of them, but some of them were perfect. Will play again!

First time to play this course- late November. Very enjoyable. My only question o the staff is, "Why was there little or no sand in the traps?" They were mostly hard pan. Otherwise, a great experience.

We did not lose any balls on the course. They all ended up in the hard pan traps. After awhile we just tossed balls out of the traps. We were paired with Championship player. He scored below par.

Tanglewood Championship Course is in excellent shape from tee to green, like a country club.

Lots of bunkers that will snare your best and worst approach shots. Only got out of 2 sand traps in 1 shot.

Very difficult to score with several placed in front of the green, not allowing for bump and run.

Scenery and variety to layout makes me want to come back several times to Tanglewood Championship Course.

Staff is very friendly. Pro shop is well- stocked. Great locker room.

Tanglewood Championship Course was a great value on Golf Now, under $20 with cart for 18 holes.

One negative to the round...... our electric cart barely made it up several hills that were not that steep. Needed a better charge before the round.

Overall, a great golfing experience worthy of multiple plays. I would highly recommend Tanglewood Championship Course to everyone!

Enjoyed the layout. Challenging with massive bunker complexes. Green were fast and for this time of year not in bad shap. Only complaint would be the bunkers which I was warned about by several people before going. Little sand, hard pan, lots of pebbles. Other ham the bunkers thought course was great and with a hot deal can’t beat the value.

If you love the challenge of the game of golf this is the perfect course. Every green is protected by at least 3 bunkers.Tons of elevation change and blind tee shots. Buy a yardage book before going out so you have some idea of where to hit. The greens rolled quick and true. My only complaint is that the players playing the course need to have more pride and respect for this course. There were far to many pitch marks in the greens and scuff marks from shoes.

Wonderful old style design, meaning it is a good walking course and not jammed with a housing development. The 11th through 14th hole complex is beautiful backing up to open farmland. Course requires some strategic thought about how to go about getting from tee to green and avoiding the many, many fairway and greenside bunkers that will lead to more bogies than pars if you find yourself in them. Tees, greens, and fairways were in excellent condition. Bunkers had variations in sand and sometimes hard, sometimes not. Best advice is to stay out of them at all cost.

Pace of play was good for our twosome walking (about 3:50). It was a Thursday afternoon and we only had twosomes in front of us.

Overall, this is a good course that will challenge you while you enjoy the scenery.

This is a great course, I got a discounted rate because of the aeration of the greens, but I was looking to work on my driving and irons so was perfect. Course has a great layout with everything in front of you, but is still challenging. Great placement of bunkers and traps adds to the challenge. Birdie opportunities and many risk reward shots. I played by myself midweek, midday and finished in 3 hours! And that was with being cart path only and 15 minutes for a dog at the turn! Perfect day!

The bunkers on the course are horrible!! Pretty much no sand! Only dirt, mud, and rocks!

I didnt even bother to try hitting out of them. Just set the ball to the nearest refief to avoid unnecessary frustration.

Other than that the course is ok.

Great course. Tons of sand. Would like to have seen people fix their divots on the greens. Got to see about 12 deer while on the course. Played for $20 per person. Can't beat that for a former championship course.

Plenty of opportunity on this course- would rather have sand than water. Would like it better if there were a few range balls to practice before you tee off. Not sure why so stingy about that? Lovely course. Enjoyed playing and will play again.
