I am new to Central Florida and this was my first time playing Red Tail. Despite the drought that has been impacting the area, the course was in relatively good shape. The greens were especially in good condition, as compared to those on other local courses we've recently played. Red Tail offered a variety of hazards (i.e. sand, water, tall rough) on many of the holes that caused us to have to consider where we were hitting rather than just "driving away" off the tee. That made for a thinking experience and club selection decisions that many of the other local courses we've played simply don't offer. As a senior high handicapper, I did find some of the some holes to be challenging but, thankfully, there were enough other holes that were more open and allowed us to recover so, overall, it was a fair experience. I found Red Tail to be one of the nicer courses I've played in the Central Florida area and definitely would like to play there again.

I love this golf course but yesterday was a joke. It started with 5 women playing best ball who thankfully waved us through on the 2nd hole. From 2-6 there were no other golfers. When we reached 7 the waiting began. On every hole to the end, the group in front of us was on the tee. On the par 5 12th hole, there were 4 groups on that hole alone. While it's expected that there would be waiting if you are a twosome, but this was extreme. It took 3 and a half hours to play holes 7-18. On a Thursday afternoon in 95 degree heat, that is not acceptable!

Love this course however is on the tough side. There are some difficult holes and you can lose some balls (you will find some also).

Always in excellent shaft and greens are very true.

A great value for 49.00 bucks.

We have been playing Redtail since it was private. It is a great layout tough but playable. Unfortunately it was hard as a rock and not much grass on the fairways. The greens wouldn't hold even a super high wedge into them and that was frustrating. With the pricing it was worth the drive over. We will continue to play it and hope they can get it in better shape!!

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.
