Tanglewood in South Lyon is home to 27 holes of championship golf that are collectively known as "The Lion." The holes are dived into three nines: the North, South, and West; that are played in three different combinations. The golf courses sprawl across a gently rolling landscape, which doesn't offer dramatic elevation changes but it is undulating enough to make finding a flat lie no easy feat. The South/West Course is tight, offering little room for error. There are creeks and ponds that come into play several times throughout and there are also out-of-bounds in play on most of the tee shots. The sixth hole on the West nine is called the "Michigan Hole," since the green is shaped like the lower-peninsula of Michigan, accented by a geographically correct replica of the Mackinac Bridge. The South/West combination is the club's most popular.
