Tanglewood’s historic Championship Course was designed by legendary architect Robert Trent Jones, Sr. Since opening in 1958, it has consistently ranked as one of the top public courses in the nation. Tanglewood has a deep, rich tradition of hosting some of golf’s most prestigious tournaments, including the 1974 PGA Championship, the 1986 U.S. Amateur Public Links Championship, and the Senior PGA Tour’s Vantage Championship.
Thanks to Jones’ vision, each picturesque hole, built on gentle rolling hills surrounded by nature, is beautifully framed and guarded by many of the course’s 98 bunkers. Five sets of tees offer golfers of all abilities a fun, challenging and memorable day of golf on the storied fairways of the No. 1 public course in the state (as voted by North Carolina Magazine).
