Welcome to Red Tail Golf Club.

Nestled among the 100-yr old oaks of Lake County, most people find it hard to believe that Red Tail Golf Club is in Florida. Rolling hills peppered with majestic trees and the feeling of being immersed in nature make it no wonder that the club’s culture is considered ‘laid-back luxury’. The crowning achievement of Red Tail is the spectacular 18-hole golf course. Players of all abilities will love the course which was designed by famed golf course architect Dave Harman. Play spans 7,152 yards, creating a par 72 links-style course. There’s also a 10-acre practice facility for golfers to improve their game, along with two putting greens. The well-stocked pro shop also features all the latest apparel to fulfill all your golfing needs.

It’s always a great pleasure to return to Harbor Hills Country Club with our group of junior players.

Harbor Hills was the recent host venue for the PGA Tour (LatinoAmerica) LOCALiQ competition where 144 professionals battled it out for a place in the final season event in The Bahamas. This year Harbor Hills are delighted to also be hosting several FSGA Junior events (Florida Junior Tour – FJT)

Our event, ranked by GJGR, will give players an opportunity to test yourself in challenging competition play over this great championship layout.

Head Professional Tom Leimberger and the team at HH work extremely hard to support junior golf in our community and they always provide a fine welcome to our Tour. Harbor Hills is deceptively challenging and it always proves tough for most of the field to post their lowest numbers. Lots of elevation changes and usually a firm breeze contribute to that!

Harbor Hills has provided us with quite a few great moments, fine individual performances and some wonderfully competitive junior golf. You really don’t want to miss out on this one and we advise you register as early as you can!
