8:30 shotgun on a weekend....

The course is good, conditions are fine and it’s a decent value. However, how in the world does a course think it’s okay to send a shotgun tournament off the back 9 on a Saturday at 8:30??!!!! We played the front in 2 hours and the back in 3 hours. There were 2 groups waiting on every tee box. Totally unacceptable.

Slow Pace

Course was in really good condition but they had two tournaments out on the course at the same time. Saw the marshal a few times but didn't do much to speed it up. He actually indirectly told us to speed it up on 17 green when we were waiting on each tee box the last 12 holes after the shotgun tournament was placed in front of us.

Nice course with drainage issues

This is a nice course. Well kept however it needs work to improve the drainage in many areas around the course. Even so, I will be happy to return and play again.

Always a pleasure to play here!, worth the 55 minute drive!!! Staff are always very pleasant and friendly. Course is challenging but fair. Good size greens and they are nice to putt on, they don’t break as much as you’d expect.. Always a nice day at Redtail, definitely recommend playing it!!!

Not the Redtail of the past

This course use to be amazing. Now it seems like they’re doing the bare minimum to keep it decent. Really hope they can get it back in good shape.

Great layout and conditions

RedTail is a challenging course in really good condition. David Harman also designed both courses at Orange County National and its evident in the design. There are plenty of tough shots off the tee and although the greens are wide open they tend to always undulate making for some tough putts. Pace of play is great and you can’t beat the price.

Fun course but still below average conditions

This course still needs to improve the fairways and greens. Fairways have bare spots and weeds. Greens were slow and also bare spots. Good value for $30-40 but nothing more.

All of the greens were aerated and not in good shape. Yet that information was not given up front and the course still charged $47.00. NOT A FORTH IT....

Dissapointed

Have played this course many times before and went out of my way to play it on my way up to Jacksonville. Very disappointing.

Rough was virtually unplayable and the greens were terrible. Recently aerated with no alert posted on golf now. Couldn't even really putt on them with big punch holes and lots of sand. Even the greens and fairways had alot of crabgrass.

Pretty Good

I knew from other reviews that the greens had just been aerated, but I was surprised at how much sand was still on the greens. A lot of sand on this course anyway. Pretty challenging and fun course.

Don't miss the horses by #5.

The horses by the 5th hole add an extra dimension to a great course. Course was in good shape except for
the "new lakes" formed by the heavy recent rains. But that is not the fault of the course, And I managed to avoid all but one of those. Holes 10 & 18 remain as tough as always for me but I managed to bogey both of them which is a plus for me.It's nice to hit off nice fairways and the greens are coming back from being aerated.

Forget reading the greens

The course is in full aeration mode for the greens. They appears to be having some overgrowth problems with weeds on the greens as well. If you see a break, hit it straight. Also early in the morning the greens are very slow with the sand. As the days warms up they get a little faster. When you are playing in these conditions, you need to make the hole a little bigger, The group I was playing with expanded the hole by 3 inches and called anything in that circle good. You are trying to have fun, you don't need bad greens wrecking your day. The fairways were in good shape.
