In the fall of 1897, Southern California’s newest sport, golf, arrived in Los Angeles in what was destined to be an important and influential manner. A group of dedicated and enthusiastic residents of Los Angeles organized a voluntary association, which would lay the groundwork for The Los Angeles Country Club.
In fact, several golf courses were developed on different locations by the group before property was secured and building was started at the Club’s current location. After years of planning, the new Club located just outside of Beverly Hills, officially opened on May 30, 1911. Its stately Clubhouse, tennis courts and 36 holes of golf have served as the Club’s home ever since.
In 2010, a redesign of the iconic North Course was unveiled after the completion of a project to restore George Thomas’ great design. Gil Hanse was charged with balancing the unique architectural vision of the North Course with the functionality necessary to sustain its design details well into the future. The North Course now enjoys national recognition as one of the most beautiful and challenging courses in the country.
2015 saw the beginning of two additional renovation projects to prepare t...he Club for the upcoming years. In 2016, the 104 year old Clubhouse will reopen its doors after a yearlong Restoration project led by Johnson Fain Architectural Firm. The South Course will also be ready for golf play after an extensive renovation and redesign once again led by Gil Hanse. The Los Angeles Country Club recently hosted the 46th Walker Cup Match in September 2017 which showcased the Club's 36 hole golf courses and Clubhouse. The Los Angeles Country Club is presently underway preparing to be an exceptional host for the United States Open in June of 2023.
