First Time Playing

Red Tail

Course has improved significantly over the past year. The greens are back from almost dirt to being green. However, the eight green is beginning to show some issues and course needs to remain vigilant. Course plays tough, particularly the back 9. The course is easily accessible from Disney on the 429 and worth the drive.

One year later - Still a subpar course.

Played Red Tail one year ago and the course was in poor shape. Played again 1/19 and sad to say, conditions have not improved.

For the good- the layout of the course is nice and challenging. There are some very picturesque views. The staff was friendly.

For the not so good-
*Tee boxes were is poor shape
*Greens are sparse on several holes.
Fairway need some love.
*Bunker sand is filled with nickel sized rocks. Nothing like firing projectiles when playing out of them.
*Cart has no brakes and the canopy was loose which banged on every little bump.

Overall, the course appears tired and could use some attention. Sad to report that I will not be retuning to Red Tail. There are many other courses in the area that cost the same to play and are in much better shape.

One of our favorites

Grass is thin this time of year, but course plays great. Greens are quick. For the money can’t think of many places I would rather play.

Pace of play was beyond slow

With no starter, we started about 15 minutes late behind several groups. There were young teens driving all around in private golf carts throughout the course. There was a group ahead with several small children (ages 5-6) that were running around with tiny clubs hitting off the tees and running crazy on the greens. Two groups sat there watching as the dad totally ignored the backup.

No ranger around to help speed things up so we hit hole 18 in total darkness after starting at 1:20. Greens and fairways are improving but still need help. Will not be playing here again any time soon.

Course

The course has seen better days, alot of mud fairways, greens are like bad carpet. I love the challenge of the course, there were about 4 or 5 holes from tee to green that were in great shape!! Rest had problems, it has potential

Very Dissapointed

I was hoping for some decent conditions but boy was I wrong. The fairwinds are in bad shape and some of the greens are horrible. I won’t be back for a long while.

RedTail Golf Club

We played RedTail yesterday, 12/31/21. The course has a fantastic layout with several tee boxes to choose from depending on your skill level - choose wisely here. The course is in average shape for this time of year. They didn't over seed so the fairways have tight lies as expected. The fairways and greens are in good shape but the greens are running a little slow due to being top dressed recently - in another week or two they should be great. The range is in good shape also. The staff is very friendly. The pace of play was a bit slow but not too bad for a challenging course. We played in about 4:25. This course is a lot of fun to play, not your typical Florida course. Bring your "A" game for this one!

Who sands greens in December!? This is course awful now! Don’t waste your money!!!

Played 12/30/21 at 7:20am. We have played this course for years over the last 7+ years; this is the worst shape I have ever seen it in. Carts are old and actually came up on 3 carts left at tee boxes and fairways, assuming they died. Pace of play by the local members was awful. We had a 4some in front of us playing multiple balls and refused to let us as a 3some play thru. The greens have been recently sanded and are in awful shape, burnt, holding water, and NO ONE repairs a ball mark out here. Tee boxes = same thing. The course isn’t worth the price. The pro shop staff was rude, just as cart guys. I could go on and on and on, but it’s not worth it. We have slowly seen this course sliding downhill, but figure we haven’t been here in 5 months; let’s give it a go?! Welp there will be no more going for us, especially at the rates they are charging. This course is maybe $25, it’s basically a longer Zellwood Station.

Course mgmt a must

Need a partner who has played this course more than once. Fairways are split between valleys and waste areas. Sometimes you have to use less than driver from the tee or you will lose your ball in a valley of waste area I.e. the first tee. I will say if your up for the challenge the fairways and greens are in good shape
