@Kelli,
Could this be Toyon (Heteromeles arbutifolia var. cerina),

or Toyon (Heteromeles arbutifolia var. cerina 'Davis Gold')?

It could be var. cerina but is definitely not 'Davis Gold'. It is a wild plant, not a cultivar.

Hi Kelli,
Based upon the descriptions noted in my original post and the following link, it appears yellow berries are Toyon (Heteromeles arbutifolia var. cerina) so I'll move the photo.
[url=www.fs.fed.us/database/feis/plants/shrub/hetarb/all.html]www.fs.fed.us/database/feis/plants/shrub/hetarb/all.html[/url]

Morphological distinctions between varieties are presented below
[45,46]:

H. a. var. arbutifolia - typical variety; fruit red
H. a. var. cerina - fruit yellow
H. a. var. macrocarpa - large fruited form; fruit red; leaves subentire
