rangers ruined this course

The rangers will follow you throughout your round and pester you about times even if you never hold anyone up. VERY annoying!!!! These guys would lurk around the tee boxes and greens. They would start up their carts during our swings. Truely rediculous! The final straw was when the ranger comes up to us and complains about our pace. 2 of us made birdies on the hole and 1 guy struggled but hey we play ready golf and are always aware if we are backing anyone up. This isn't the PGA tour and this course isn't Medina!

Nice course

Played at 630 am.. course is in good condition. Some of the tee boxs it was hard to get tee in due the the hard dirt. Greens were in good shape and pins placed just right so you had to think about your approach shots.

Course is in great shape, although some traps are hard and Rocky.

Clubhouse improved beer selection, and added a grill outside. Really nice improvements!

Stepped it up from last year.

The course was the best it's been in the past few years and the clubhouse has been nicely remodeled. The entire staff was very hospitable, friendly and smiled. A special mention to the course manager. He was very welcoming!

Nice layout and fun to play

Red Tail is sort of a hidden gem. It's a little out of the way, but worth the drive. All the holes are unique and it's a good test. They had 3 1/2 inches of rain 2 days earlier, and there were a couple of soggy spots, but no restrictions on carts and the course was in good condition. There are some homes bordering the course, but you'd have to hit a wild one to find a back yard. It was a hot day and not too crowded. We played as a twosome and had to wait on most holes, but still finished in 4 hrs 25 mins. Not much of a clubhouse, but nice fresh grilled brats at the turn. Course always has deals, so it's a real bargain for a nice track.

Always enjoy this course. Fairly open off tees, but still challenging to all level of players. This day was a bit backed up with novice, couples..12 48 tee time. But all in all one of our go to's in Cary/ Crystal Lake area.

Love this course, the only problem was the greens were not cut and the tee boxes weren't either made for a really tough day. And then got behind a foursome that fell a hole and a half behind finally got past them on the 7th hole a to skip a hole though everytime we would approach them they would take off.
