Tangle Ridge Golf Club’s location near Joe Pool Lake is favorable because of the elevation changes that spice up this well-maintained public course. The course offers some outstanding holes, highlighted by impressive bentgrass greens that putt true. In addition to the elevation changes, Jeff Brauer’s design features generous fairways lined by thick brush and huge trees. Two holes grab your attention on the front side. The opener goes 469 yards and might be the most difficult on the golf course.
While there aren’t too many hazards, bunkers protect the fairway and green, and the thick rough lining of the fairway makes it a difficult long approach if you miss the smooth stuff off the tee. Tangle Ridge Golf Club’s eighth hole is considered the signature: a 575-yarder that rolls downhill off the tee to a creek that cuts the fairway at 300 yards out. The approach on no. 8 must carry the creek to an elevated green protected by two massive mounds.
Tangle Ridge Golf Course is relatively short from the tips at 6835 yards, but it’s no walk in the park and has a slope of 133 and a rating of 73.4. The front nine is fantastic and the back is a little easier, flatter, and not quite as exciting. This is a layout that will throw a little bit of everything at you and it requires good course management and shot-making skills.
You’ll get to use a variety of clubs as you try to manage the elevation changes, risk-reward opportunities, doglegs and blind shots, trees and thick rough, numerous bunkers, creeks and ravines, dramatic mounding, and elevated and well guarded green complexes. Make sure you pick the right set of tee boxes and don’t try to be too macho if you want to score well and not have to buy the drinks after your round.
