GOLF COURSE

The Challenge is a mainly public course housing an 18-hole course designed by Shape Masters. The golf course was built in 1997 on the rolling farmland adjacent to the Haw River. This par 72 course measures 6,828 yards from the championship tees and offers five other sets of tees that make the course enjoyable for golfers of all ages and skill levels. The Club’s practice facilities consist of a warm up hitting area and an expansive chipping and putting green.

The Club has hosted several Mid-Amateur Qualifiers over the years. It is a Four-Star rated golf course by Golf Digest, the recipient of the 2nd Best New Course in North Carolina by NC Golf Magazine Panel, voted 24th Most Improved Golf Course in America in 2019 by Golf Advisor and Best New Public Course of the Piedmont by Carolinas Magazine.

Tanglewood, which boasts two championship courses designed by legendary architect Robert Trent Jones, Sr., is one of the premiere public facilities in the United States. Nestled among the rolling hills along the banks of the Yadkin River in the heart of the Piedmont region of North Carolina, the Championship and Reynolds Courses are both challenging and beautiful. Golf's greatest players have walked the fairways in pursuit of winning some of the Game's most prestigious events.

The historic Championship Course, host of the 1974 PGA Championship and the Champions Tour Vantage Championship from 1988-2002, was closed in 2018 for a major renovation. The collaborative effort between Rober Trent Jones II and Richard Mandell included completely redesigning, repositioning and restoring all bunkers, converting the greens from bentgrass to Champion Bermudagrass, and creating new play angles and options on many holes.

The changes are outstanding. The updated playability, strategy and picturesque vistas have created a unique
and memorable golfing experience.

D3 Classic at Tanglewood

On Thursday August 4th, the Central Carolina Senior Amateur Golf Tour took on the Championship Course at Tanglewood Park. Good weather and great course conditions and greens greeted the competitors.

 

In the Champ flight, Kevin McDougald pulled out a single shot victory with a score of four over par 74. Joey Moffett was runner up shooting 75. Dean Parziale and John East ended the day T3 by posting a pair of 77’s, while Chris Wilkes rounded out the top five carding a score of 80.

 

Ken Eichele in the A flight brought his A game to Tanglewood as he posted an even par 70 to win by two shots. Howard Nemenz and Ron Brady completed their rounds with scores of 72 in a T2 finish. David Beaver took fourth place with a score of 73, while Victor Glenn from the Charlotte Tour rounded out the top five with a 74. 

 

In the B flight, Charles Newman from the Charlotte Tour used back to back birdies enroute to an even par 35 on the front nine and a total score of 75 for the win. Rob Andrews was  runner up a stroke back with his round of 76, while Dan Johnson placed third shooting 77. Gene Jones carded an eagle in his round of 78 to take fourth place, and Russell McDonald from the Charlotte Tour rounded out the top five posting a 79. 

 

In the C flight, Greg Martin fired a score of 83 to claim victory by three strokes. Runner up Tom Kubla posted a round of 86, while Mike Groom placed third with his round of 88. Rus Rilling and Billy Lunsford finished T4 as each shot scores of 89. 

 

Eighteen holes of golf was insufficient to produce a winner in the D flight as Sola Edwards and Kelly Brown ended regulation play with matching 90’s which required a sudden victory playoff. And today it most certainly was a sudden victory as Sola calmly rolled in a 60 foot birdie putt to notch another win. Mark Dyvig from the Charlotte Tour finished third posting 93, and Don Senior took fourth place with an even 100.

 

Next up for the Central Carolina Tour is The Challenge Golf Club in Graham on Thursday August 11th. Sign up today for your spot on the playing roster.
