Classic Cleveland Course

Course is in very good shape. A few rough spots here and there but greens were excellent. Fairway lies a bit tight.

Tanglewood has become a goat track :(

We have been playing Tanglewood for years. Unfortunately, it has deteriorated into a goat track. It should be a crime to let such a landmark course end up this way.
We played it about 3 months ago and it was in horrible shape. We decided to give it one last try yesterday and unfortunately it was in even worse shape.
The fairways vary from baked clay hard pan to casual water mush with plus balls. Hole #10 was one of the more memorable examples of this, with a great drive that plugged 2 inches below the ground in an isolated wetland in the middle of the fairway that was followed with a well hit wedge that bounced and rolled forever like the fairway had been paved.
The rough and fairways are dying with bare spots and weeds taking over the course.
The sand traps have no sand typically in many area, so take a drop or ruin an edge hitting of the exposed gravel in the traps.
You may not be able to get a tee into the tee box without using a hammer or a predrilled pilot hole.
The greens had been heavily watered at times and areas with resulting gross inconsistencies in speed, break, and ball behavior on chips and approach shots.
It appears that the course has not been fertilized, weeded, insect control, aerated in some time.
The worn, dated clubhouse is well, exactly that.
It looks like the plan is to sell or close it. A surprising strategy when most courses are still having record profitable years.
The staff seemed friendly enough, but we had no desire to be there anymore and will not return until reliable friends report that it is back to its former glory.
Some may think that I was a bit hard on the course with my comments, but given the poor conditions vs what the very good condition were in previous years, I think it was appropriate to be honest and report accordingly.

Tee choices for women are 4500 or 5500.
Both are ridiculous in their own right

What a Great Time!

Wonderful course; good layout. Great for the price. Fairways and Greens were in excellent shape; tee boxes need some work. Was well worth the price we paid. Had some drainage issues in places. Staff was excellent on-course amenities were a little lacking. Overall wonderful time.

I thought the course was in great shape. Greens rolled true and at a good pace. Bunkers were nasty and need help.

Pace of play was suspect

Course was solid with lay out and conditions. Pace of play was atrocious. Seemed like they overbooked and weren't checking on pace. Took 2.5 hours to play 7 holes, at one point 7 people were at the same tee box waiting.

Six hour’s to play 18.

If you love sitting on the course and waiting to play this is the course for you. Our round took us just shy of 6 hours. We had a 10am tee time and didn’t get to tee off until 10:45. I had a similar experience last year but wanted to give them another shot because it is a fun course. Nothing at this course has been updated since Bush (1) was in office. Hope some new management can come in and teach these chuckleheads how to properly run a course.

Poor conditions

I'm sure Tanglewood was a great course back in the day and has so much history. The layout is really great but the conditions have deteriorated to the point of being bad. The tee boxes have little grass, the fairways have mud and bare spots throughout and the greens are in horrible shape. You can tell that they don't have the financial backing to get this course in shape any time soon. Very sad and hope to see it come back again.

Great layout, but…

Always enjoy playing the course, but pace of play was pretty bad this time. As a foursome, we play ready golf and never hold anyone up- the disappointing part was that we were jokingly told by one of the rangers that we were playing “too fast” instead of either pushing the groups in front of us or helping us play through. Other than that, we really enjoy the track.

Bad Management

This course has gone down hill quickly. The pace of play is horrific will take you over 6 hours to play 18 holes. Rangers don’t do their job. In the “clubhouse” over priced drinks and food. Suggest bringing lawn chair for all the time you’ll do waiting around.
