Tanglewood National Golf Club is a public golf course located in Bainbridge Township, Geauga County, Ohio within the Tanglewood Lake housing development.

Formerly known as Tanglewood Country Club which was a private country club, the club went into receivership in 2007 after the Tanglewood Tr. road to the club was closed for 3 years destroying the business.

On June 6, 2009, Tanglewood Country Club was purchased at auction by Marc Strauss for $950,000 - less than half of its appraised value and Tanglewood National Golf Club as of July 1, 2009.

Tanglewood National Golf Club is currently in the process of being sold to the Tanglewood Lake residents.
