Condition of the course was a little disappointing. Greens were bumpy and Lots of large gougesin the fairways. Also disappointed by difficulty finding yard markers in many instances.

Very much enjoy the layout. But due to Course difficulty it will take at least four hours to complete a round even when the course is virtually empty.

"Rough shape"

It was a shame to see the course in such rough shape. Greens were really scuffed and marked up and the holes were cut poorly. Some fairways were patchy and areas of standing water from previous storms had not been marked off in any fashion. I might considering giving it another shot later in the summer after the weather has been better, but this time was not good at all.

Played the course from the back tees and it offers a challenge from a shot making and length perspective. Greens were okay although a little bumpy. Course was very wet and standing water has killed some areas both on and off the greens.

With a little capital this could be a great place to play.

My first time playing...had a great time..Course layout not too challenging, but dont take this course lightly....Once you get on the greens, dont be surprised if you have a lot of 3 putts ..lightening fast and nothing is flat...really challenges your skills on the greens

Perfect weather and fast pace of play make every round enjoyable. There were a couple of rough greens and even a few more dicey tees but overall the condition was very good. The greens rolled very well.

I have played Tanglewood many times over the last 15 years. It is a nice course with some very challenging holes. It is maintained fairly well. My main complaint is that they have raised the greens fees to a ridiculous level. This course is NOT worth $55.00 on a weekend morning. There are many courses in NE Ohio that are just as nice for $20.00 less. I would pay an extra $10.00 and play Boulder Creek which is 10 times as nice. Again you will enjoy a round here, just look for deals.

First time out at Tanglewood. The actual playing experience was great. The course was fun and challenging, and in great shape. My biggest issue was with some of the off-course amenities one would expect at such an upscale course. For starters there is a range but it's rudimentary at best. There's only one size of buckets, small (About 30 balls) and it was $6 (most courses this would be about $3-$4). The bills were a mix of everything...range balls to balls found on the course. Also the teeing ground was pretty chewed up. Definitely expected a nicer range at such a course. Inside the clubhouse it was practical at best...a minimal snack bar (drinks, hot dogs, and chips...that's about it) and a few tables. Lastly on the course the biggest thing I found missing was water. Thankfully I talked to the clubhouse manager before the round and he told me there was no water on the course due to teenagers and residents of the surrounding homes abusing the coolers. A shame...you do need to take a drink of water here and there on the course during a round. Also odd was the scorecards/tee markers. Not one of them showed any hole routing at all. I was left to the GPS on my phone to navigate around the course. Why they couldn't include hole routings with yardages on the scorecards is perplexing. The course itself is great, just addressing a few of these rough edges could make a good round into a great round.

Older course. No starter so people played in groups of 5 and very slow. Course conditions fair. Tee boxes poor. People were friendly. Course layout is hilly. Some challenging holes.
