Always OK.

Always seems that with a little effort this course could be top notch. But hey, it’s October.

Tanglewood golf

Good greens. Well maintained traps. Lots of sand in traps. Fairways needs work. Some tee boxes need grass. Pace of play was excellent.

Tanglewood has gone downhill this year.

I've played this course twice this season. One in May and now this past weekend. The conditions in May were bad but it was a wet spring so I gave them a break. On Saturday, they were worse during a very dry period.

Problems - the fairway and rough look basically the same both in condition and height. Honestly, if you have to look hard on each hole to tell the difference. Many holes had multiple areas of mud fairway (#10 is a great example). The teeing areas are beat up. I had to laugh seeing fertilizer spread on wet dirt on tees. Greens were OK but again, there were multiple areas of dirt. Much worse than other public courses. The final straw is how they let their "members" do basically anything they want to do. On Saturday, we made the turn to find two foursomes waiting at the #10 tee. We are a traveling league so there was one of our foursomes ahead of us, and three behind. The Members were having an outing and wanted to squeeze between us. Then another group drove right across the teeing area on #12 WHILE WE WERE HITTING BALLS. No wave, no waiting until we teed off. They just cruised on by us. I almost wish that we had plunked one on them.

The course layout is great. This could be a fantastic course. Obviously, the ownership doesn't want to put any money into it.

Paper scorecards and no pencils?

The layout is great but too many fairways are like civil war battlefields. The course could be 1st class with some drainage and clearing out a few trees. The grreens rolled well. It is supposed to be a "resort" course but you have paper scorecards and no pencils? As much as I like the layout, I doubt I will be back

course could be really good if some money were to be put into greens/cart paths and some fairways looked like Afghanistan.

Never going back

Our round took nearly 6 hours!!!! We finally saw a Ranger almost 4 hours in but that was worthless. More than a couple of the fairways were almost unplayable due to drainage construction Apparently the course is for sale and it is obvious that nobody is willing to invest any time, effort or $$$. It's a shame, Tanglewood used to be one of the best clubs in the Cleveland area.

Firm

Course played like a rock. Bare spots in every fairway and we’re huge. Tee boxes were graveyards and unkept. A good groundskeeper could really change this place around. Would like to see improvement all around. If you pay full price avoid this place at all costs

Needs some work

I played here years ago and it was in much better condition. The tee boxes need some love and the fairways are spotty but the greens were great and rolled true.
Not sure I would drive an hour to play this again.

Lack of course info

It’s was my first time playing this course and right off the bat there were incorrect signs for where the pro shop was. Next I grabbed the scorecard and there are no pictures of the links on it, which makes it almost impossible to play a hole correctly without some form of reference. There weren’t any layout maps in the pro shop either. Their website had a picture of all 18 whole but it’s wayyyyy outdated and was useless. Then I went to warmup and the practice, the green was fast, not a problem, now I know their holes probably have mostly fast greens….False. Their greens are slow. After that it was again difficult to find the next hole to play because there are no signs or arrows anywhere. Their T- Boxes are a disaster on some holes. There are no distance marker throughout the holes either. And lastly all 18 holes and a cart was not even worth it with the deal I got in which I paid $10 less than normal which is $42. At best this is a $20 round of golf.

My experience at tanglewood

Course is obviously not kept up with. The fairways were cut terribly and also had a ton of mud puddles scattered on every hole. The greens rolled horribly and were very inconsistent. Not only that but when my group made the turn we ran into their league where 20 people were waiting on the tee box. Ended up replaying the front nine but overall this was the most disappointed ive ever been in a course

Decent course

This was my first time playing at Tanglewood. The course beautifully laid out in the Chagrin Falls hills and features some holes around the lake. My only criticism is that some of tee boxes weren’t in the best condition and the few bunkers I found around the greens were lacking sand. But it was an enjoyably and challenging course. I would play here again in the future. I would recommend a cart to get around the hilly course.
