Character in abundance at Wilcox Oaks Golf Club.
Wilcox Oaks Golf Club is private Red Bluff Golf Club that is a tale of two stories: The original nine opened in 1929, it is open and enjoyable while the second nine was built in 1977 by the members, it is tight, and tight is an understatement. Keep your ball straight or pay the consequences. The golf course is enjoyable to play and the club also enjoys a large swimming pool adjacent to the clubhouse.
Home to the annual Red Bluff Pro-Am which normally draws a full field.
Wilcox Oaks Golf Club is the only 18 hole golf course in the small community of Red Bluff which is 30 minutes south of Redding, it has memberships which are more affordable than you would think, give them a call and join in on the fun!

The swimming pool sits next to the clubhouse opposite side of the driving range and practice putting area.
#1 approach shot to a typical small green. as most on the course are traditional round or oval and tilted from back to front.
#3 Green with a couple protective bunkers. Not a tough green but another small target.
Here is the tee box for #4, a longish par three, often playing into the prevailing wind.
#5 tee box you should keep a look out for the cars crossing in front of the tee box. This par 5 playing into the prevailing wind requires a delicate second shot between large trees on each side of a narrow side sloping fairway.
#9 is an open tee shot for most, the longer hitters get pinched in with the trees the closer you get.
The young mans tee shot from above was in great position to approach the green which is protected by a large oak tree short and right of the green and the sand trap on the left.
#10 Tee. Many courses have one of these... a hole that is unforgettable, sometimes a good thing sometimes not, The fun of playing is you get to decide which it is. After a lay-up tee shot, the second is a 90 degree turn to the left to a severely up hill and small green.
Bunkers here are at the difficult hole #12. A par five with a tricky tee shot requiring a lay-up or a big draw for the right handed golfer, ok maybe a hook over the nearby trees is needed to keep it near the fairway.
This par 3, #15 is typical of the back nine, a hole that doesn't cause to much trouble as long as your laser accurate. Find the trees and you'll be fortunate if it only costs you one shot.
#18, a short par 3 protected by a large overhanging Oak tree and a severely sloped green. Take a par here and be a very happy golfer, a picture doesn't accurately show you how much slope in the green there is. Sometimes missing the green is better than hitting it. Generally, pin high or barely short of the pin with the ball lying slightly right of the green is safe.
