Won’t turn down money

Called and booked a tee time, got out on the course and by the third hole the tee boxes were 3 groups backed up. They overbooked the course and they new it. The greens were horrible, tee boxes were horrible. The upkeep of the course in general was horrible. Use to like this course but it’s obvious there’s something going on behind the scenes and it’s mismanaged. I heard this from a few people this year and I experienced it in person..

Another great day at Red Tail!

Spent Father’s Day with my wife riding along as I joined a gentleman and his two sons. We had a wonderful day on an outstanding course - in top condition! Red Tail is a fun, challenging course - always a pleasure to play. I’ll be back!

Another great day at Red Tail!

Since we’re able to play during COVID day. It was a treat to get out with great weather to boot! Red Tail is an outstanding facility, in an area with a lot of great golf options. Check it out!

S-L-O-W

To allow a five-some is beyond my understanding. 12th hole, 2-some on the tee box and 2 guys waiting? Where is your ranger? Had to follow 2 2somes for 7 holes, a ranger should have made the 2 2-somes play TOGETHER! Other than this, course was nice.

Great conditions after a great deal of rain.

We had a lot of rain the previous few days. Although the rough was thick, course played very well. Fairways and greens were cut meticulously, ground was soft but not to squishy due to the rain.
Staff was working feverishly to remedy the bunkers.
Greens ran very true and were ale to hold shots coming in from the fairway / rough.

Shaggy greens

I played the course twice In 3 days. I really like the layout and the people who worked there. I played 5 -6 times a year at this course. The greens were way too long I know they hadn't been cut from Sunday till Tuesday. Not good the grass was growi9from edges into the cup. Pretty frustrating trying to get a feel for how the greens were rolling.
