How to play Los Angeles Country Club

Here’s how you can play at Los Angeles Country Club, the host venue of the 2023 US Open

In 1897, the first iteration of the Los Angeles Golf Club leased a 16-acre lot and installed a nine-hole course called Windmill Links.

A year later, another site called Convent Links was formed at Pico Heights, where another nine holes were built.

After the club laid out its first 18 holes on a third site, Convent Links was the club’s home until 1910, when the club sought another new home.

On May 30, 1911, the new 36-hole club in Beverly Hills opened and this location has been the club’s home ever since.

The golf course was designed by Joe Sartori, Ed Tufts, Norman Macbeth, and Charles Orr. The courses were redesigned by Herbert Fowler and George C. Thomas and in 1996 and 1997 a renovation of the North and South courses was done.

The North Course, the host venue for this year’s US Open, opened in 2010 after one of George Thomas’s greatest designs underwent a five-year restoration.

Beginning in 2015, the clubhouse underwent a 16-month renovation, and that same year, Gil Hanse began redesigning the South Course in the spirit of Augusta National. It was reopened in July 2016.

The North Course hosted the Walker Cup for the first time in 2017 and will now become a US Open course, and the first major to be held in Los Angeles in 28 years.

Having seen performances by Brooks Koepka at the PGA Championship and Jon Rahm at the Masters, golf fans will head to LACC to see who will hoist the US Open trophy.

Winning the US Open is one of the game’s great achievements as one of its four major championships and many stars on the PGA Tour and LIV Golf are hoping to peak at the right time this summer.

How to play Los Angeles Country Club

Unless you’re a top-tier pro or an elite amateur who’s qualified for the golf tournament, it seems hard to book a spot at the Los Angeles Country Club.

The club’s website provides information for guests, but there is no information on green fees or tee time availability for this prestigious US Open championship venue.

You may play the course if invited by a LACC member.

According to the website, the club “takes pride in making each of our guests feel like a member during their visit with us.”

A Los Angeles Country Club membership isn’t cheap either. The reported full membership initiation fee is between $300,000 and $500,000, while annual fees reportedly range from $20,000 to $30,000 per year.
