The course was in great shape. The greens were quick and rolled mostly true. The only bummer was the pace of play, it was a little slow but the course made it worthwhile.

More golfers than any course I have played this year. Pace was not too bad with this many players.

Conditions were excellent except for some wet areas from recent rains. Mother nature added a few additional challenges!

RedTail is a fun layout. Hilariously the soggy fairways actually make it play easier because you can just play to the edges and know there is zero chance of rollout.

No idea why the course is underwater, but it is underwater everywhere. Most holes are cart path only.

Greens on most holes were good, but with the wet conditions they likely won’t hold out unless people mind their divots.

The warm-up practice area is a joke. They wouldn’t give you a bucket bigger than 15 balls to warm up with, so there’s that as well.

If you are worried about people taking COVID seriously just avoid most courses in the area, RedTail was no exception with not a mask to be seen anywhere on site.

Red Tail was looking very good. The course was a little wet with the excess area rain, but you could tell the staff has handled it well. There were 4 cart path only holes, but the overall course wasn't that wet.

The greens were good. Rolled really nice. A few had some areas of crab grass, but overall zero complaints.

Fairways and rough were all fine.

The course has a unique design. Gotta know when and where to hit driver, but I enjoy it as a course to throw into the mix, definitely in the winter when other are over priced.

I'll start by saying that I play 4-5 times a week and have played here several times. The course is always well kept, but the greens keepers have NO etiquette and will drive the mower right at you, or sit right in the middle of the landing areas. Not like most places where they hide and shut off the mowers. One of my biggest complaints is how they treat you if you're not a member. you are NOT allowed to use the chipping green and only 6 people may hit at a time. They will come yell at you and it doesn't matter that nobody is there. They just don't make you feel like they want you there unless you're a member.

First time playing. Challenging from tee box. Second shot requires accuracy due to the vast bunker complexes protecting the front of greens. Play an extra half club; no bunkers at the back of most greens. Surrounded by wetlands. The course is bordered by housing. They are recessed back from the fairways. Very quiet retirement community. Greens are large, front to back, but present a small profile from the fairway; Left to right. I feel for the groundsman who have to maintain all these bunkers! Excellent layout that will truly challenge all skill sets.

First time but it, DEFINITELY, won’t be the last!

From check in to departure, the staff was very friendly and welcoming. For example, as a single and playing here for the first time, I had a great conversation with the pro prior to playing. The tips he gave wee a lifesaver! It allowed a first timer to play well.

The course was very playable. I played it after a couple days of rain and carts were 90 degrees. No signs of drainage issues.

The layout is fun and unique. Creative design that you will appreciate. Pay attention to where the next hole is. There was one player I came across who got lost due to not knowing the layout. Otherwise, every par 3 is visually pleasing.

Although the greens could’ve been a bit faster, they still rolled true and consistent. Putts and chips ran out. another foot or so. Again, greens were solid, true and consistent from green to green!!

Tee boxes and fairways were very fair with no issues. The green fees are fair and competitive for the value.

Red Tail is a semi-private, great option and a real treat! Just don’t let down your focus because they next hole could produce a double with a 3 putt!! Good luck!!

The course was in good shape. There were a few tee boxes that needed a little work, but they were level.

The fairways were in good shape and the greens rolled true. Overall had a good time and look forward to playing this course again.
