Red Tail Golf Club opened in 2002 with a design by architect Brian Silva. The course plays over a variety of terrain, including through stands of maples, birches, oaks, and pine trees. The Audubon Society gave RTGC Bronze Signature Sanctuary status. The 2015 Massachusetts Amateur Public Links Championship will be played here.

Great layout but SLOW play. Played 18 in about 5.5 hours on a Monday afternoon.I would play again but a little maintenance wouldn't hurt and this course would be one of the best around.

Red Tail has seen much better days. The course conditions were absolutely atrocious and certainly not anywhere near a $99 golf course should be. Management needs to come to grips with the fact they need to reduce the price to encourage more play and then use the revenues to restore the course to its previous conditions. It's a very nice layout but the conditions take away from the golf experience. I would recommend staying away until they reduce the price to the $60-$70 range and conditions improve.

Unbelieveable views and great use of the land. definitely ranks in the upper 10% of the courses I have played. Given the prices which were a bit high, the greens were in average condition and there were many worn or burned spots around the course. This is surprising given the amount of rain this summer.

A little on the pricey side but well worth splurging for a great course.

Red Tail - Nov 18th late season and a small drop in price lured us to this self-described top course. Top 3, top 10? definitely in the top 50 massachusetts courses. Maybe i'm biased because i didn't really like this course when i played it before...in early summer 6 or 7 years ago when everyone was raving about it. Yes thats 6 or 7 years ago and this is the 1st time back, only reason back was that my playing partners have never played it. The day was warm and overcast and the course was quiet except for the golfers on it, one guy in a tractor made up the grounds crew this day, he was blowing the leaves off the 4th hole's elevated tee, the area below the tee where no one should be hitting it, meanwhile the leave drifts in the fairways and traps were left alone...I know these guys need a day off but for $65 and the end of the season eniment with maybe 4-5 months off you think they'd get them out there working. I learned a new word at the course "Tee-Master" not starter or ranger its the Tee-Master here..what an honor, the things we can look forward to in retirement. Fall golf can be tough especially when you lose a ball in the leaves...however these leaves should not come into play on the fairway unless its a windy day or um oh yeah... you say the heck with taking care of the course. Nevermind that your patrons are still paynig $65, what's that noise off in the distance ? yeah thats Shaker and Cyprian Keyes leave sucker cleaning off their fairways and traps... I will be back to this course..they didn't have any logo-balls in stock so if i'm in the neighborhood i might swing in . The course is nice and it deserves 3-4 stars, the greens are challenging and top-notch for difficulty but the edges are getting ruined by cart traffic, this is areas off the tees on the sides by the greens and areas where they direct carts off the fairways..they need to fix alot of little things here..hence the top fifty rating, which by the way isn't a bad thing in massachusetts. I see i'm the 1st to dog this track here, I played 102 rounds this year at 95 different courses so i see alot, i just think this place in hyped up

Played Red Tail for the first time and it was a first rate experience. The course was in excellent condition from tee to green. The layout was fantastic. Challenging course that was worth the high price of the greens fees.

Been playing Red Tail for 3 seasons, about 3-4 times only each season because of its high fees. Cart and range balls are included in the fees. It is our favorite course now in central Mass. There are easily 7/8 holes that could have been signature holes at other courses. Unexpectedly, there are a greater number of downhill holes than uphill ones. The result yields commanding views on many holesGÇövery effective use of the terrain indeed. Playing the appropriate set of tees will test every club in your bag.
All the par 3s holes are visually intimidating but the designer gives you safe alternative landing areas. Traffic is light even on weekends that we sometimes finish in less than 4 hours. Conditions are nearly always impeccable. The large greens are consistent and contoured. Generally, pin positions are very friendly. But you can see that they can easily set it up to baffle. With 5 sets of tees and long tee boxes, there are lots of possibilities to accommodate the skilled golfers and hackers alike.
Best times to play are in the spring and fall when rates are discounted and when the views are the best. We always play in the afternoon for the discounted rates.
