A nice start to the round on the first hole, a slight dogleg right with a creek about 50 short of the destination.
Hole #1 fairway. The approach shot needs to carry the creek that is in front of the green.
#1, after crossing the bridge over the creek the bunkers are more in view, if you can't make it to the green there is room short to land safely.
#2 tee shot must carry this creek, which can be difficult at times. Depending upon the line the ball is hit on you can cut off a chunk of this dogleg par 5 by taking some risk.
#2 , the approach shot can be a short one . Be careful hitting into this green that has two distinct levels. the long hitters may be able to reach the green in two.
#3, this short uphill par 3 has a shallow firm green that runs diagonally away from the tee box. You'll want to see a back pin on this hole, the front pin is quite difficult with a very small target.
#4, a well played tee shot to the bottom and left side of the hill will leave a short second.
#5, this the newest hole on the course is an uphill tee shot with the second to a firm and crowned green with a false front.
#9, This par 5 has a downhill tee shot requiring a lay up short of the creek bed, or a thundering tee shot over it.
#9, the second and third shots of this hole are uphill to a large green, grab extra club for the elevation change.
The very large green on #9 has some flat areas, while other spots require playing a large amount of break
#13, This was lengthened a few years ago and a new green was constucted and the pond expanded. A big improvemnt for sure.
#15, For most players this downhill par 5 is not reachable in two shots. Those who try to reach the pond and rock walls will make you think twice.
The rock walls and pond protect this long narrow green. The false front will propel the ball forward as it slopes towards the back of the green on the approach shot.
#16, is one of the most difficult holes in the Redding area. This par 4 has plenty of trouble all around. a couple well placed shots are at a premium. Add two clubs for your approach shot.
#17 plays severely downhill and is quite short as well, distance control is at a premium.
#18 tee, this closing par 5 at Gold Hills Golf Course is a tough hole with out of bounds on the right and hazard on the left.
Here at 18 green looking back. the green sits in a bowl shaped area that can help a wayward shot. A nice finish to an enjoyable round of golf.
