Tanglewood Golf Club - Championship Course

Clemmons, North Carolina | 18 holes | Par: 70 | 7101 yards

The Reynolds course at Tanglewood was designed by Robert Trent Jones. This scenic and challenging course has been a favorite of golfers for many years. Jones completed the first nine holes in 1965 and the second nine in 1970. It is 7,101 yards from the back tees with a slope rating of 140 and a course rating of 74.6. It has been ranked in the top 75 public golf courses in the country by Golf Digest.Accuracy and shot-shaping are required to score well. Many holes are doglegs which demand draws and fades. The sloping tree-lined fairways penalize errant tee shots. A well placed drive with a fairway wood or hybrid club is usually the best option and often leaves a mid to short iron second shot.The par four eighteenth hole is considered by some to be the most difficult hole at Tanglewood. A narrow twisting uphill fairway is guarded by a bunker left and by woods right. A long straight tee shot is a must in order to have a chance to hit the tiny elevated green in two shots. The green is protected by a deep bunker in the front right and a shallow bunker in the back left while slopes in front and right allow poorly struck shots to roll off. Very few birdies are made here.
