The greens are perfect and fast but fair. Fairways are in good shape but there were some rough, clumpy spots off out the fairways. Overall just a fantastic value to play on a top notch golf course.

That said, the white stakes between 14 and 15 is bush league. While I do understand the goal to keep people from playing in adjoining fairways, out of bounds isn't the way to do it. Either redesign the holes or plant trees to keep people in their own fairway, but oob stakes is not the way to fix a design flaw on a layout.

The big claim about this "Championship Course" being re-done is a joke. Only visible improvement was the bunkering - added white sand. Nothing else seemed "better." There are many, many areas of the course where there has been no improvement to erosion areas, etc. Yardage markers are severely lacking. No 150 bushes. And some holes may, or may not, have in-ground yard markers, or painted yardages on the cart paths. All in all, my expectations of the "remodeled Championship Course" was a disappointment. Also, the "cart path only" rule had no justification.

Course was in great shape after the renovation. The greens were dormant but very smooth, fairways were over seeded and great to play off of. Bunkers were excellent and very playable. Course is a great layout with challenging but fun holes. No bad hole on the course, I can understand why there was a PGA Championship here.

Greens and new sand traps were definitely a wonderfull improvement. Hopefully fairways and replanted areas in the rough will come out this spring. Usually play here can be pretty slow, but despite the course being full we moved around in well under 4 hrs. Enjoyable round and will look forward to playing as weather gets better.

Tanglewood is an outstanding golf course. Every hole offers a visual challenge. A variety of tee locations for any skill level however the greens have been resurfaced and with the slope and contour are challenging to putt. Smooth and consistent from green to green. Bunkering is specular and the sand is playable. The bright white sand contrasting the green of the course is impressive. A difficult course where par is good.

Always enjoyed playing here before the renovations so I was excited to get back out there and play the new greens. I was very pleased with how everything turned out. The greens have came in beautifully but still need a little more time to completely heal up. Bunkers are 100% better now since they’ve taken some out and redone the ones they left. The day I played was pretty wet out from a rain the day before so it was cart path only. My only complaint is the collars were not mowed so if you were right off the green you were chipping out of the thick stuff. Once they mow the fringes, this course will be back up at the top of the list of public courses around the triad area!

I have played Tanglewood Champions course a few times. The majority of the time was when they had the Senior tour playing there. The course was recently aerated which caused the greens to be bumpy but I have seen it in a lot better shape. Still with that said I always like playing the course.
