Course

Just finished playing Redtail it’s the best I’ve ever seen it play. The greens are plush , fairways are absolutely beautiful. It’s not a ounce of dirt on the course from the previous months. I would recommend this course a 10 out 10. It’s amazing the work they have done to get it back and even better!!

Great Round

I heard the greens and overall golf course was struggling earlier this year, they have recovered now. Great layout, always a challenge and fun. The drainage is excellent, especially after the wet weather we have had recently.

Buyer Beware

Course has minimal carts and very few practice balls. They are closed for aerification this week but there are no alerts on the tee times and no discounts. There are weeds everywhere. Not worth the money or drive.

First Time Playing

Unimpressed

First time playing course. NO GPS, pro shop was out of water.. no ball washers on cart or at tee boxes.. saw cart girl in front nine, but not back. Very confusing layout- had people ask us where next hole was, we searched about 5 minutes after finishing hole to find next one. Conditions were wet, no big deal , BUT 2 holes had a swamp in the middle of the fairway-that you couldn’t see. Hit my best drive of the day right into one! Tee boxes were ok, fairly weedy, but you tee up anyway. The course has more moguls than an Olympic ski course. Blind shots that ended up on a downslope or upslope. Rakes were hit and miss in the traps- and you couldn’t see them from where you hit. (Fairway and some green side) greens were good,, but because fairways were so hilly, greens should have been sloped to make you read breaks-mostly straight flat. For the money, not worth the drive.

As it ever was

This remains a good layout in the NW corner of the Orlando Metroplex. Requires a lot of course knowledge as there are hidden hazards. Tee to green was in excellent shape, but some bunkers were muddy. Pro shop is spartan. Eating facilities are odd -- the main grill is spacious but there is no snack bar type option, and that main dining area isn't open for any kind of breakfast sandwich or similar.

It's an interesting track in that it looks like it once aspired to be more than it is. For the price point, it's a good round of golf.

Awesome course

Played Father’s Day ‘21 here. First time at red tail and it did not disappoint. We had an early tee time, friendly staff got us checked in smoothly, went and hit a small bucket at the range and off we went. First impressions, nice facility, carts were clean and worked well. Course was impressive, tee boxes, most fairways and all greens in great shape and rolling nicely. We really enjoyed the challenge of the course but still had a great time. One of our new favorites and we will be back for sure. They even have a great military/Leo/uniformed discount. Thanks again Red Tail staff!! Especially Ryan was extremely helpful!

Great comeback story

I'm part of a local group that plays a lot around Central Florida. We hadn't been out here yet. Had to check it out. RedTail is in top-notch shape. They had a rough time with the greens earlier this year...but they are BACK. Hat tip to the course super & crew for their hard work. The clubhouse staff will treat you right. Everything was great from beginning to end. Great service, great day, fun and challenging course, scenic views of some horse farms. We couldn't believe we had the course to ourselves on a Saturday afternoon. Worth the drive, even through SR46 traffic. Get out there! I'll definitely be back.

The Greens are Back!

The greens are back! They have battled with fungus and won the war. The course looks good and warning, the greens are slow.

One thing to note; the carts are terrible. They need to be someone to refurbish them or lease new cart.

Stiff challenge

The course was wet from days of rain. You really need to know where to place your ball around the course to score well. The greens were in very good shape and rolled out at a nice speed. A bit of a drive from Orlando, but worth it.

Redtail

It is nice to see Redtail back in great shape. Course looks great. Greens and fairways are what i have come to expect from this course.

Glad to have it back in the rotation.
