Course Overview

Gil Hanse and team restored George Thomas’s classic to perfection in 2010. Bunkers were reshaped and relocated, fairways widened and a natural barranca was brought back into play as a strategic hazard. As Hanse says of what is arguably America’s premier urban design, “The course enjoys a perfect sense of place and balance.” LACC hosted the 2017 Walker Cup and the 2023 U.S. Open won by Wyndham Clark. Early in U.S. Open week, a false narrative emerged that the fairways were too wide, but by the end of the event, the facts bore out that driving to particular sides and spots within the fairways was critical for success. LACC”s superlative collection of one-shot holes proved quite a test as well, even with ball in hand and a perfect lie/stance. (Photo: LC Lambrecht)

3 things to know

  • Hole everyone talks about

    11th hole, par-3, 244 yards: While the 11th is long, is does provide a landing area in front to run shots up onto the reverse Redan green, but strategically-placed bunkers await to gobble up imprecision.
  • Best non-golf amenity

    Among the many amenities members enjoy is a heated, Olympic-size swimming pool.
  • Insider tip

    Grab a pre-round breakfast on the clubhouse’s sprawling back patio for views of the 1st and 18th holes and a glimpse of the Hollywood Hills in the distance.
