Project NotesRed Tail was carved into the hills and woods formerly occupied by Ft. Devens, and some remnants of its former life are still visible (the 17th hole is nicknamed Bunkers not because of sand... but because of the old ammunition bunkers that can be seen to the right of the fairway and green). The course was named a ''Best New Course You can Play'' by GOLF MAGAZINE and was the first Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary Signature Course in all of New England, proving that an environmentally friendly need not be entirely unfriendly to golfers of all abilities.
What They're Saying"Red Tail was designed by Brian Silva, and it is one of his most imaginative yet. Red Tail appears inspired by Alister MacKenzie, particularly in the spectacular nature and placement of its bunkers and the extraordinary contours of some of its greens. At 14, Red Tail begins what might be the best stretch of finishing holes built this year. Alister Mackenzie would have been proud." ~Golf Digest
"An architect should never lose sight of his responsibility as an educational factor in the game. Nothing will tend to develop the right spirit of the game than an insistence upon the high ideals that should inspire sound golf architecture. Every course should be constructed so as to afford incentive to and provide a reward for high-class play; and by high-class play is meant, simply the best of which each individual himself is capable."
