Condition of course much better than last year. Had course to our selves. With more water on the fairway this would be an exceptional course. Terrific value. Hope the increased building activity doesn't take it off Golfnow. If you haven't played it yet, your missing a good track!

Red Tail to me has always been sort of a "fancy-smancy" golf course. It caters to the well to do people and thats fine, nothing wrong with that, I wish I were well to do...lol. We play in the summer mostly when rates are lower and its not so crowded. My problem is when you're done playing and going out to your car to unload your cart, theres always some guy out there who insists on helping you unload your gear. This drives me nuts. I like to take my time, I'm in no rush, and I wish they would just go away. I don't need my clubs wiped off, I don't need my bag loaded for me, I don't need my drink handed to me, and I don't need any help with anything. They act like if they're not out there I might steal the cart or something. Other than that, its a nice place and very challenging.

The course on the whole was good value for the money. Have been wanting to play this course for some time and finally made the drive from Orlando north to play. Course is in a great community lots of elevation changes and the greens played fast and true. Fairways were in OK shape and the pace of play was steady. All in all a good course. Private course gone semi private. If the price is right its worth the drive.

The course was in good condition for winter. With it being dry, the ball got a good roll. The greens were smooth and a bit fast. There were sand bunkers around some greens, especially near the water areas to keep ones ball from rolling into the water. The fairways and rough had quite a bit of undulation.

We didn't have time to stay to eat, but would have enjoyed sitting on the patio looking back out onto the 18th hole with such a gorgeous view. The clubhouse is magnificent with locker rooms the best I have ever seen.

If in the area again, we would enjoy playing the course again. I would recommend it.

First thing you see as you enter the pro shop, is the sign behind you over the club house, "Members Only"

Then the first words you hear in the pro shop, "the chipping green is for members only". Then when you finally arrive at the driving range, you get the honor of warming up on the "guest range". Warm and fuzzy!

Course was excellent, worth the drive over from Mission Inn for just 1 day. Yes, 1 day only. Tons of more friendliness over at Mission Inn than this place. If you can stomach the snobbishness, then don't skip this course.

Reviews it seems are like wine and restaurants - what suits one may not suit all. Review for RT were very high. must say, I was surprised and disappointed after seeing and playing it. Has potential but rough around the edges in terms of upkeep - not lush. and now loaded with track housing on perimeter. i wouldn't go out of my way to play it and not worth more than say 40 rd.

The greens were great.

The rest of the course was in fairly good shape

The scrub brush areas had been trimmed but none of the clippings removed. This made it impossible to find a ball hit into them.
