Riverview Golf and Country Club is the preeminent club in Redding, with active golf and social schedules plus numerous amenities this member owned club is deep-rooted in Redding. With is beginings at this location in 1946 explains its terrific location, views and Sacramento River frontage. The Clubhouse, Practice Area and #1 hole tee-box are all looking over the Sacramento River and Mt Bally beyond, truly a wonderful view! The swimming pool and Tennis courts are the icing on the cake.
Golf: On this end of the equation you need to be careful of the tee shot on #1 and not be distracted by the view, it is beautiful. Left lies the river, if you bail out right the trees will devour your shot making for an already long par five even longer. Overall it is traditional layout with parallel fairways in many instances... you can see much more below. The fairways are Bermuda, the greens are Bent and numerous sand bunkers throughout the golf course.
Nearby are a variety of neighborhoods yet with the club's roots planted years ago there are no homes directly on the golf course.

#1 tee: There is not a more dramatic tee shot in the Redding area. A long par 5 with the Sacramento River being played as out of bounds.

#2: A slight fade off the tee leaves a nice approach shot remaining, out of bounds to the left.
#3 Tee is adjacent to the Sacramento River.
#4 the last of the holes with Sacramento River frontage.
#5 tee: A slight dogleg left.
#6 tee like many other holes has trees on both sides. The trees are large yet spaced apart so you can often hit between them when needed.
#7 is a short par 4, here is the view as the green is approached.
#9 tee: A dogleg left par 5 that requires the right handed player to hit a strong draw to get around the corner. Reachable in two by only the longest hitters.
The snack shack is at the turn and is also accesible beteen the 15th & 16th holes.
#12 Tee: A carefully placed tee shot will help the second towards the green that is protected by water and a large oak tree.
#12 green has water to the left and back with a large oak on the right..
#14, a very narrow fairway off the tee makes this a sometimes difficult par 5.
#14 opens up after the drive to a large two tiered green.
#16: Another tight driving hole, yet with a well placed ball down the left side a birdie can be had.
#17: A beautiful par 3 protected by a pond protecting the front and right with a bunker also on the right for added challenge.
#18 tee: Out of bounds looms close on the left side with a sloping fairway and large trees on the left. Hit left of the trees and you're in a water hazard.
#18 green like many other is large and protected by bunkers on both sides.
