Great shape

Course is in great condition. Roughs are a little riugh but with it being winter its expected. Fairways are green and in very good shape. Tee boxes are great there are 1 or 2 that need help but being in a shady spot its understood. Greens rolled very well. Overall the course is amazing. The value is worth it other courses charging same rate are not in as good a condition. Love playing here. Honestly top dollar for here is about 60$ and if u wanna play pay it. Otherwise rates are much lower at certain times.

Best course conditions.

It is the best conditions I have seen this year, from tees to fairways to greens. This course is in great shape, good layout will challenge your shot making. We had a very windy day, but it was very enjoyable. A must on your list.

Worth the drive

This course is about 30-45 minutes north of Orlando, but well worth the drive. Tee boxes, fairways, and greens were in great shape, even with recent heavy rains and the greens having been sanded. There are a few quite interesting/challenging holes, otherwise the remainder of the is pretty typical Florida, yet still plays fair. The course conditions are as good as any Orlando area course priced at $80-100, but was less than half the price. Highly recommended!

Moderate

Very friendly staff all around and greens were good. Downside is the course is definitely target golf as the staff stated. A big issue is poor drainage that left multiple, unplayable areas that aren't meant to be hazards and pop up throughout the course.

You just have to know what type of course this is to set proper expectations.

Gorgeous Hilly Course!

RedTail lives up to its reviews. I was looking for a new course in Central Florida so I decided to give it a try based on its overall reviews and score on Golf Advisor. The course is beautiful, peaceful and challenging all at once. It is well-mainted, the beverage cart visited us several times throughout our round, which was nice and staff was overall very friendly.

Tees, fairways, greens all in good shape. After 2" of rain recently, course played a little long. Greens are fast and true. Always enjoy this wonderful track.

Course Maintenance Top Notch

Red Tail is always consistent with their service and more importantly with the way they listen to nature when it comes to maintaining the grounds. The Greens are meticulously maintained and roll very true. The fairways are plush with good roll out and all the Tee Boxes are in good shape. It is worth the drive for the experience especially with such a good value for this caliber of course

Disappointed

When we pulled in to the lot, the bag boy told us the pin placements were going to be ridiculous. He was not lying... every pin was within 3 feet of the edge of a green. Front, back, sides... right behind sand traps on downslopes. PGA pros would never allow such a ridiculous situation. This turned our round into 5 hours because the people in front of us took forever on each green. The conditions of the course are average, traps need attention and the greens were not fast, as we were told they would be. If a course is going to do this, it should warn people before you let them sign up and they have no where else to go!!

Nice but slow

Course in excellent condition. A lot of target golf. Use a GPS device. We never saw a ranger. 445 to play at noon on a Friday. Teed off ontime too. That is my only complaint. Greens roll fast. 11 or higher and true. Make sure you know the course or use GPS.

This is a great challenging course but...

Great challenging course to play if you are in the area, it is a target style and rather tough course. We were paired up with a Single who was a good golfer, unfortunately we had to wait for the group in front of us and there was no ranger that we saw, it made it tough to get a rythem going!

I think for as busy as they commented on they were, they should have a ranger to keep an eye on slow play.

Favorite course in central Florida

As always totally enjoyed this course. It is far better than most courses in the area in every way in terms of layout, scenery, course design and conditions, and it is reasonably priced and not overcrowded.

Better HAVE & TAKE your A game!

RedTail Golf Club is a true test of your golf skills! It's not a course for the short hitter. Not only must you hit a solid drive just to reach several fairways, but the fairways are narrow and you need to be straight as well. Several holes require hitting a second fairway with your second shot - also necessitating a good poke. Nearly all greens are well guarded by bunkers, and the rare "short" hole is complicated by elevation changes. The narrow fairways are lined with mounds, fairway bunkers, and/or hazards. The course is in GREAT shape, staffed with friendly people, and modestly priced. Homes surrounding the course are truly impressive. RedTail is a fun challenge. Low handicappers will love it! High handicappers, bring a lot of patience and golf balls.
