Red-tailed Hawks are found throughout California - and a golf
course would provide not only excellent hunting grounds, but excellent
trees for cover, roosting and nesting.
I just checked the map for Groveland and see that it is near the
Sierra-Nevada mountains - which is PRIME habitat for Red-tailed Hawks
- but if Red-tails are nesting in NYC and SF, I am sure they have
adapted enough to nest near a golf course in or near the Sierra
Nevada's of California. .
Red-tailed Hawks are found pretty much throughout the North
American continent, on up into Canada and down into Mexico.
I am not sure why you would think there would be no Red-tailed
Hawks in your area. . .??
Perhaps you are confusing the RTH with some other species of hawk
that is by far less common in California?
