Info

Architect: George C. Thomas
Founded: 1929
Public: Yes

For nearly a century, our golf course has withstood the tests of time. The course was developed by the Los Angeles Athletic Club over an 18 month span, opening to critical acclaim in 1927. The LAAC commissioned George C. Thomas, an amateur architect who agreed to take on the project free of charge. It became his crowning achievement and today is considered one of the finest natural layouts in all of golf. As Hale Irwin attests, “The integrity of the course is influenced greatly by the fact that no two holes are alike and the course has been placed, rather than forced, into the land.”

The beauty in Thomas’ design is that each hole presents a new challenge. Johnny Miller, winner of the 1981 Los Angeles Open, described Riviera as, “Definitely one of the greatest, no-nonsense golf courses in the world! It requires a player to play every club in his bag and every shot in his game.”

Whether it’s a casual round with friends or a major championship, Riviera never ceases to provide a thrilling challenge. As Arnold Palmer once wrote of Riviera, “I consider it one of the great tests of golf.”
