Progressively getting worse
I have played this course almost every weekend since March, and it's progressively getting worse.
Tee boxes are spotty at best, the greens are filled with divots and bare spots.
The fairways are either being repaired or really need repair.
Sandtraps look like the Grand Canyon....bad enough that I took a penalty shot rather than hitting it out.
Guess I'll start looking for a new home course
I went out with an old friend on a nice day to try this course for the first time. There was no attendant at the bag drop. We found the pro shop and checked in with a friendly manager who directed us to a golf cart attendant who was helpful in directing us where to go.
On the practice putting green we felt we were in for a special day with the green fast (estimate stimp of about 11) and smooth. But we were surprised when we found the greens on the course were at least 3' - 4' slower than the practice green. Moreover, it was apparent from the large number of big unfixed ball marks on every green that he course is played by people who don't make an effort to take care of the course.
The course layout was interesting with plenty of variety from hole to hole. Most holes had significant elevation changes, and there were several holes where we found it necessary to drive the cart forward to have a look at landing zones. Fortunately the amount of play was very light so that we could do that without holding up play. At least pace of play was very good.
- The tees were definitely the worst that I've seen in several years. Many were sloped and most of them had very poor turf. Grass cover was sparse and the ground was so hard on nearly every tee pad that it was difficult to place a tee in the ground. Several tee pads were closed because they were in such poor condition.
- Most of the fairways were in good condition though there were some with large bare spots.
- Greens were much slower than the practice green and pock marked with many, many unfixed ball marks. Green contours were mostly pretty gentle though you have to be careful with limited visibility of the horizon due to hills and trees to get a good read on breaks.
- Rough was in average condition and for the most part was not so deep that balls would be easily lost. (I lost none on this course.).
- Bunkers had obviously not been groomed for quite awhile. Most had footprints and quite a few were covered with wildlife footprints.
- Obstacles: There was a nice mix of water, trees, bunkers, and topology to keep things interesting.
We were quite surprised that the distance between the 9th green and 10th tee was about 3/4 mile with poor signage to indicate where to go. There was one water fountain on each nine - not nearly enough to keep players hydrated. There was also NO restroom on either nine.
Nice Layout Reynolds Course
Course is in Great Shape
Grounds Crew always checking and watering the greens
A Ranger On the course which is good but not needed Today. All alone this afternoon
Only Drawback, A Couple of Tee Boxes are Bare
No big deal, just hind a spot to hit from
No one plays after 1PM when it’s hot out

Tanglewood Reynolds Course
The course is in great shape. It gets less play than the championship course, so play is quicker. Great value.
Tanglewood Reynolds or Championship Courses are the best rounds for the money in the Winston-Salem, NC area.
Very nice staff,
I enjoyed the layout. It was extremely hot but “Championship Course “ had plenty of shade. I would play again. Fairways and greens were well maintained for the most part. Course could have used some better Tee boxes( more grass and watered. I hit 13 of the 18 greens and not one green produced a divot. They were like concrete.
I got an excellent deal on Golf Now of $15. You can’t beat that deal.
Tight fun layout
I enjoyed my round and was pleasantly surprised with the layout. Several excellent holes and found that it plays somewhat difficult despite its lack of length. Greens were somewhat slow but rolled well.
Good greens, but bunkers, tee boxes and fairways are not in good condition. Really good layout, but needs more $ spent on maintenance.
Course was in pretty good condition. Fairways and greens were in good shape. Only complaint is tee boxes were not in good shape and bunkers were washed out. Greens were inconsistent in speed from hole to hole. Very hilly course but fun layout. Overall not bad.
Course needs some maintenance
Greens were great, sand traps & tee boxes were in bad shape, Fairways were average at best..
Took my sister out for 18 on her birthday. She proceeded to lock her keys and clubs in the car! Staff couldn't have been nicer helping out and hooking her up with a set of clubs for her round!
Course was in good shape. Will definitely be back!
Reynolds Course at Tanglewood
We tees off early to get a jump on the pace. Greens are so much improved! They’re in the best condition I’ve seen there in years. The grounds crew is finally making overdue fixes like replacing the river sand with white sand and that really helps! Punched out of a bunker on #9 easily. There are still some to fix but at least they’re finally fixing them. I guess the county is paying up for deferred maintenance. Regardless, for a public course, you can’t beat the value. The layout requires planning ahead and rewards smart club selection. Try it and see for yourself!
Overall the Course is in Great condition, Greens were in excellent condition and and speed was consistent through out. Very enjoyable round of golf.
The Reynolds course has an interesting layout through dense forests. Many holes on the short side but they're super tight so bring your a-game. Greens were in great shape...fairways and rough not so much. However for the price it was a very good value and I'd have no reservations coming back to play again..
Reynolds course is a fun and enjoyable experience
This course is always challenging and a fun layout. I recommend it to anyone.
Reynolds course was traditional and challenging. Greens were in great shape. Fairways need some work. But were good.. I traveled from RDU to play this course and I would do it again.
Nice layout but lots of weeds in fairways. Bumpy greens!
Tight fairways with several blind tee shots. Bunkers were inconsistent, some with white fluffy sand and others with red clay sand. Significant changes in elevation on several holes, 2 or 3 clubs. Lots of dogleg tee shots, few straight ones. Lots of uneven lies on approach shots. Probably either love it or hate it!
I love to play this course. Has tight fairways several water holes that are in play. I play it about once a month.
Very enjoyable course to play
Tanglewood Reynolds is a very enjoyable course to play challenging but fair. For FEB and the amount of rain recently the course is in very good condition. Greens role true, bunkers are well groomed and playable. The grounds crew does a good job maintaining these courses.
