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.

Peaceful friendly course

Staff was like family making you feel welcome. Beautiful new deck on back with dynamight staff. Course was in very nice shape. One of my favorite places to play. Not to diffucult so you can score good and ball puts nice and true on greens.

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.

Red Tail

Course was in great shape.
Pace of play wasn’t bad. Little congested at times, but expected when it’s 70+ degrees in November in Illinois.
Only thing that was a little annoying was no cash transactions, credit card only, but they would accept cash tips. A little strange?
All in all, great course
