Detailed description of Lake Redding Golf Course

Lake Redding Golf Course is a Public, 9 hole golf course located in Redding, California.

Lake Redding Golf Course first opened for play in 1961 and was Reddings's oldest public course.

Lake Redding Golf Course has nine holes that are nearly flat and very easy to walk. This course is made up of par 3's and short par 4 holes in a very convenient downtown location.

Lake Redding Golf Course plays to a par-31 for 9 holes and maximum distance of 1,790 yards.

Lake Redding Golf Course closed in late November, 2009, just after Thanksgiving.

Landscape architect and golf course builder Jim Smith, negotiated to take over the course and re-open the course in May 2010.

Smith's background in golf includes the construction of roughly 100 Robert Muir Graves-designed golf courses. Smith also built the Greg Norman-designed The Course at Wente Vineyards in Livermore and the Arnold Palmer PGA West course in La Quinta, he said.

Some changes Smith plans for Lake Redding include moving the lake on the ninth hole in front of the green and relocating the bunker to the back left corner, rebuilding the second green, and leveling out the tee boxes.

Yesterday, my 79 year old mother and 76 year old aunt took my 11 year old son to play golf at Lake Redding Golf Course.

When they finished their round, my mother went to the restroom and left my 11 year old in the care of my aunt. When she returned from the bathroom, my son was gone. She found him outside with the owner, Jim. Jim just ordered my son to go with him rather than waiting for his grandmother. Jim was verbally attacking my son because he had been told that he had left divots on the course and failed to replace the grass. When my mother found my son outside, she intervened and explained to Jim that he was incorrect. In fact, my son had been with her the entire time and was very well aware of the practice of replacing divots. Still, Jim choose to verbally attack my 11 year old son, even threatening him by "grabbing him by the ear and taking him around the golf course and forcing him to fix every divot on his course".

First, Jim was wrong - my son is a respectful, kind young man who would never leave a divot unfilled.

Second, Jim should have NEVER removed my son from the club house without first contacting his grandparent and discussing the issue with her. Jim is not God. He is the owner of a crappy, dirty, little golf course.

Third, only a complete idiot would threaten a child.

So, learn from us. Don't golf at this place. The owner is a complete jackwagon.
