Tanglewood has taken a downturn

I understand a 5 hour round on a nice fall day but after 5 hours we still had 5 holes left. Called the clubhouse after not seeing a ranger the entire time playing. Clubhouse sent someone out but he decided the guys holding everyone up were “fun” to be around. We drove over to see what was going on and we were greeted with “it is what it is. Go back to your box and get ready to hit.” Ranger and the group he was with tried to explain this is Sunday golf and we should be use to it. They couldn’t be more wrong and the course and it’s staff are the worst I’ve meet in my 5+ years golfing southeast Michigan. Don’t play here. Pheasant run or golden fox to the south or anything in Oakland county are great alternatives for better courses and definitely better people.

A game needed

This is a superior layout in great condition.
I scored poorly, making the mistake of playing back tees.
Over 7000 yards too much given my 16 hcp. The par threes are extremely difficult from back there.

Will play again. Next time I’ll play white or silver.

Great Golf Experience

My wife and I played the South/Wets nines. Th staff was absolutely great from the Bag Drop to Check in to Starters and Rangers. The course is in great condition. The greens were not fast but well-manicured and rolled true. The carts paths had been recently repaved, and they were outstanding. We saw the cart girl 3x during the round. The range is not very large but has several targets at marked distances. We hit ff the mats.
Tanglewood delivers a private club level experience. It is worth the drive and I will return.

Great Saturday round

Even for high noon tee time pace was solid, course was beautiful after having had heavy rains Thursday night. Greens and tee boxes were excellent.

Just Okay

one of those places that if you can get out there, and play one time, it's worth the trip. but I would never go back. probably good for the average one - two rounds per month golfer. Seemed like a lot of ladies and alot of old timers out there.
