First Time Playing

Great links course. Didn't get to enjoy it as it was freezing today (52 degrees), which is too much for our Miami blood. However I enjoyed the experience and will be back.

Decent workout

Course is in pretty good condition although some tee boxes are a bit rough. Decent pace with little waiting. Still don’t like #18! Tough finishing hole.

Early Morning Round

I have played this course several times and it never disappoints. It requires you to play smart and not just bomb it away. If that is not your style, then this is not the course for you. Greens were a tad bit inconsistent and had a few spots that were burned out a little on the edges. Beyond that, I can not complain. I will be back very soon.

Slow!!!!

Typical Redtail!! Super slow round; took 4 1/2 hours to play. No marshals to get people moving or to play the correct tees.

Rough at the edges

You can't get a better value for the money in the Orlando metro (though it's about 20 miles NW of downtown. That said, they need to tighten up a little it. The course maintenance is as bad as I've seen it in 10 years -- not that it's in bad shape overall, but it's woefully inconsistent. At the same green complex you'll have two bunkers full of sand, and two that have barely any in them. The greens are good but very grainy and, as with maintenance, very inconsistent. The course requires some course knowledge too. You can be penalized for good shots if you don't know better in some places.

That said, it's a great layout and a great price, and the pace of play is usually very good, because the course isn't overcrowded.

Needs management help

Played this nice course yesterday. Course didn’t have a starter or any rangers. Our round took 5 hours which is unacceptable. Please add some staff to help you run this course or it’s downhill for Red Tail golf club.

Needs Attention

No bag man. No signs to indicate where the Pro Shop is located.
Pro Shop attendant was less than welcoming.
Very small practice range.
Red Tail has a nice layout but is in big need of some TLC in several maintenance areas. Mildew was prominent on several tees and greens. The grass was very thin in way too many areas of the fairways. The greens were bumpy and uneven in speed. Bunkers had uneven depths of sand. All of this is an indication of inadequate attention to course maintenance.
There is a need for much better signage, especially where there are crossovers.
Though the front nine was played with only a few delays, it took over three hours to play the back nine. Why don't they have a Marshall?
I won't be back.

Little Disappointed

We played this course in 2019 & were very impressed and put it on our list to play. In 2020, its now off. The course's fairways were a bit dried out and the greens were just OK. The staff didn't go out of their way to help out. My wife was not happy to learn the washrooms had codes but no one gave us the codes. NO ACCESS. No marshalls to assist. Not a pleasnt experience.

Sloooow Play!!!

The course layout was great, but can't get over the 5 hour + round., Play was slow on the front but nothing like the back. There were 2 groups waiting on every tee. Seems the course allowed 4 groups to go off the back so everyone making the turn had to wait. Won't be going back.

Disappointing

I’m local so have played here a lot over the years. Course conditions are inconsistent. What’s really disappointing is the level of service you don’t get. Couldn’t get a cart. Didn’t get a key. Young man working the cart barn was invisible and rude. Lady behind the counter could of cared less. Wasn’t like this the last time I was here. It’s all about people!! Just basic stuff that make people want to come back. I will think twice before I do. Please don’t send out the “cookie cutter” response to this message. Just focus more on your customers. There are a lot of golf courses to play in Central Florida.

Lovely course

RedTail is a beautiful central Florida course that winds it's way through a residential community. The front 9 starts off with challenging par 4's and 5. The back 9 Is showcased with four holes that surround a wildlife refuge lake.
Greens are tough. Fairways is good shape. Enjoy playing this course.
