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.

Windy weather

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.

Great local course!

It’s not an Arcadia or Eagle Eye, but this is an excellent value for money, all 3 9-holes are fun and there’s not a stinker hole in the lot. The 3 9’s keep the pace up pretty well here and they have a very nice staff and nice bar. Excellent course and one of the best in the metro area.

Little bit of Golf Heaven

Amazing golf community and the way the course is structured and set up is a joy. Never having played the courses(there are three 9 hole layouts)I didn’t get lost once due to well marked cart paths throughout a “neighborhood “ track. I played the South then West courses. The ranges of difficulty are challenging for all levels of golfer and fairly hazardous creeks,bunkers, and “wasteland areas” require thinking your way around! Wished I would have tried the fish and chips, I will play here again. Awesome carts too!
