I found this course in fairly good condition. And like most of the courses in the area greens are starting to shape up but still need some time they are very slow. Staff was very pleasant, pro-shop adequate, no restaurant only cold sandwiches (not much to choose from)and hot dogs. But I will be back.

First time to play this Milton course. Was expecting a soggy venue after all the rain, but it was actually dry and even dusty in some parts of the course. The odd.. Putting the driving range on the par five dog leg is dumb. The good... Staff was nice and facilities were in good shape. The bad... Fairways were more weeds than grass. The ugly... Pace of play was disappointing. Lots of potential for this course, but as is I'd consider the lessor of the Pensacola venues.

My friend and I did not have an enjoyable experience at this course. When we walked into the pro shop to check in, the staff member walked away from the desk. We were left there unattended for a while before she came back to check us in. Stepping out onto the driving range, we were disappointed with how small and unkept it was. The range literally sits between two fairways of the course without barriers to separate. One of those particular fairways has a dogleg which results in a Bermuda Triangle of 200-yd balls from the range and the 215 yard balls hit from its tee box. At large, the fairways on this course are disappointing and frustrating. The grass resembles that which one might find in the average Floridian's back yard. For many of the holes, the fairway direction was difficult to understand due to the lack of natural or man-made barriers. The greens at this course are also disappointing and frustrating. I consider "well-kept" greens to be ones where there is one type of grass that stretches the entire green, creating predictable "with-the-grain" or "against-the grain" conditions. Not so at Tanglewood: most of the greens have multiple types of grass which intermingle to create a ball roll that is difficult to predict.

Pace of play was a little slow for my wife and I, due to playing behind a fivesome. They never offered to let us play through. But it was a beautiful afternoon and we just assumed they were regulars or members, so big deal. ( we play way too fast anyway)

Played this course pretty often, took my 11 year old with me as a ride along, as I have several times in the past, never a problem, until yesterday. As stated on golfnow app cart was included in the greens fee. The jerk behind the counter decided that we would have to pay additional for the rider. Not the end of the world, but when I explained to him we've done this several times in the past and never been charged to have her ride along and learn the game, he decided to give me a really nasty attitude. I also pointed out to him that the last time we were there we were given 4 separate carts...' Well I've been here blah blah blah...' So basically you are calling me a liar?! What a poor customer experience. Sad to because it was my ' go to' family friendly course. Not so much anymore. This guy pretty much ruined that for me, and on my 40th birthday too. Nothing to do with the extra $8, just the jerk behind the counter and the way it was poorly handled. Maybe when they get better staff I'll go back, but until then I would take my money elsewhere. The upper management should consider putting this guy through a customer relations course if he is going to call himself the ' manager'. A good manager sure doesn't call paying customers liars.

i gave the course 3 stars because the greens were so slow. I don't think they had been mowed for several days. A few had some bad spots covered with sand, but overall the grass looked great. I couldn't figure out why they weren't mowed unless their equipment was down. Layout was fun with several doglegs and a couple long par 3 from the tips. Before I play again, I'll ask if they have mowed. I'm playing somewhere else today and will probably have several 3-jacks because I'll rum it 8 ft by the hole.

First off the employees here are extremely polite and make you feel like part of the family!! This is the second time I have played this course, first time with my son and his friend and when were warming up on the putting green the manager noticed that we only had two sets of clubs and gave us a another set so my son's friend had a set to play with. These guys are very polite and friendly!! I just played this course today with my wife and we had a lot of fun. You get a LOT more than you pay for!! I have played some more expensive courses in the Destin area and let me tell you that this course is better maintained then any of the others I have played!! Most greens are awesome and the other ones are great!! It's a nice open course which makes pace of play faster. I love this course and will be playing here for many years to come!!

Older style course with small greens and some tight driving holes with plenty of OB stakes. Winter conditions with dormant fairways but greens were pretty good overall. You will use all the clubs in the bag here with plenty of doglegs and hazards. I like this track and will be back again. Played the back tees which are about 63-6400 yds. Fun course and good value for the price.

Tanglewood is hidden gem of a course. It is certainly worth the drive from Pensacola or even Mobile. The fairways are in excellent condition and greens roll true and fair. The carts are in excellent condition and the staff is very friendly and helpful.
