Too windy to play -- winds at 40 miles per hour

Redtail is always fun to play. Course is well maintained.
Due to lack of rain, conditions were not the best. Foursome in front of us were terrible -- our round took 5 hrs to play.

Slow weekend golf

Weekend golf here is ridiculously slow. We had to stop after 9 holes because we were at the 2.5 hour mark. At one point 5 groups were on a par 5 and not once did we see a marshal try and speed anyone up.

Fun Course

I don't get to play very often. First time playing here and first time playing in about 2 years but the course is nice and fun to play. Had a few challenges with water and bunkers but for someone who plays more often than I do you may find it easier than I did. Overall a good experience playing here. Would definitely go back.

Great Course

mid-handicapper here (12-14 hdcp), and I really like this course. A lot of contour and elevation changes, and trees in all the right places.

Greens were rolling smoothly and fast. Very surprised so early in the season.

Staff are always very helpful and polite. I only learned of this course at the end of summer last year, but I've played here more than ten times since then.

A terrific layout in (already) excellent condition

Took the opportunity to play Red Tail on their opening weekend of the 2021 season and what a good day it turned out to be. We are in full “thaw” mode in this part of the country, so there was some squishiness, to be sure, but no puddling. The greens were excellent and the layout, with its left and right doglegs, elevation changes and 2 challenging “island style” greens, is always first rate. Not sure how you beat Red Tail for cordial service, excellent layout and maintenance. I played Red Tail for the first time in 2020, so this was second time, and I will continue coming back here...more often...in the future.
