World-Class Golf Club Near Beverly Hills Welcomes Visitors During US Open


Jun 10, 2023

For the past century, the Los Angeles Country Club has been a hidden gem in the city, nestled on 325 acres of multi-billion dollar real estate neighboring Beverly Hills. While the club has been available to wealthy members valuing privacy and exclusivity, it has remained out of reach for many enthusiasts until recently. The US Open, which starts on Thursday, will be the first major golf event held in thriving golf town Los Angeles in 75 years.

With the world’s best players and global spectators in attendance, the LA Country Club’s two courses will finally be on full display. Rory McIlroy, an avid golf professional, expressed excitement about the event, stating that it will be one of the best US Opens in a while. The USGA has long been fascinated by the golf course, comparing it to legendary American golf clubs like Shinnecock Hills, Oakmont Country Club, and Pebble Beach.

Hosting prestigious events has been a significant change for LACC, which had previously been exclusive for decades. The club’s shift in stance with generations has led to the opening of LACC in 2013 with his Pac-12 championship and 2017 Walker Cup, followed by its official debut hosting the US Open. The event was organized to overcome logistical challenges posed by the harsh environment in Los Angeles, from parking to crowd management.

The Los Angeles Olympics in 2028 will host golf competition at the Riviera, and the US Women’s Open is scheduled to be held at LACC in 2032. The men will also return to the LACC in 2039. The British Open is a golf milestone for Los Angeles, with more significant events to follow, giving Los Angeles its deserved spotlight. Kathryn Schlossman, the president and CEO of the Sports and Entertainment Commission, believes LA has eagerly awaited this event’s spotlight for a long time.
