Been a While

Haven't played Tanglewood in a number of years but really enjoyed it. The course was in fantastic condition - Greens and Fairways were firm and fast. The layout is enjoyable, mixing challenging holes with ones where you can be more aggressive. Good times.

Enjoyable Round of Golf

I haven't played this course in a couple of years and there have been a few changes due to the new houses on the course. The course is in great condition and the new houses are far enough off the course to not come into play. There are three 9-hole courses and we played the North/South. The fairways, rough and greens are in great condition for this time of year. The pace of play was great on the North course but we caught up with a 3-some on the South course and the pace of play slowed down considerably. It seems there was only 3 groups on the course due to the threat of rain today and on several holes all three groups were on the same hole. There is a homeowner on the 6th hole of the South course that has a rather offensive political sign posted (vulgar language). The course plays fair and is challenging. I would definitely recommend it.

First Time Playing

Came here to play on a golf trip and the course was great. It truly felt like a high tier country club. The course was in great condition and to find playable bunkers in October is rare but they looked great. Each hole was well protected in its own way that felt unique to the lay out. Pace of play was the only issue we had getting stuck behind a slow foursome and having one waiting behind us on every hole on the back nine. Overall the price was great and my group enjoyed this course the most out of the four we played during the trip.

Better be White.....

Want just minimal, acceptable service? You better be white. If you are a person of color, like me, forget about it. Every worker there treated me like a nuisance as opposed to a customer.

2nd nine we ended up behind a group of 6 for the last 5 holes. Slow, and couldn't play through. Nice if they would have had a ranger out to take care of that.

Mixed Conditions

I have played Tanglewood at least 5 times over the last few years. In general, the course was in fair shape (played North and South). The staff is friendly but the tee boxes could use some attention

Poor Greens Keeping

The greens were terrible on every hole. Chopped up, dead grass areas. Play was very good. Probably because less people booked tee times due to poor course green conditions.

Fun course and definitely worth the hot deal price when compared to other courses in the area. Bunkers have lots of little pebbles in them to ding up your wedges and the greens had a ton of ball-marks that needed repairing. Despite that, greens rolled well and fairways and rough were in good shape. Didn't see a ranger out on the course but pace of play was 4 hours for 18 holes.

Great Course!!

Love playing this course. It was in great shape and played at a good pace. Don't think we waited once after the first tee. That's the way it should be!!! The greens rolled true and the pin placements were challenging. We were paired up with 2 other people. Thankfully they weren't hacks, they could play! Would definitely recommend this course to anyone who is not a beginner, Staff was nice, course was well maintained! Looking forward to our next round there.

Outstanding Conditions

Great course, incredible conditions and a nice layout. Actual distances tend to be a bit shorter than what is listed on the card. I kind of wish I would have played the back tees, I only pulled out my driver for about 5 holes.
