Los Angeles Country Club has been ranked as one of the top courses in the U.S. and the World by Golf Magazine's panel of experts.
The North Course at the Los Angeles Country Club is one of the most private and exclusive in the world. (Legend has it that Hugh Hefner, who lives off one of the fairways, was turned down for membership.) The 1928 William Bell design lies in the heart of Beverly Hills and shuns attention, but the quality of the course legendary.
The signature hole is the 11th, a par 3 reverse-Redan hole that features a downhill tee shot to a green that slopes hard from back to front. From the tee box, players are treated to a stunning view of the clubhouse and the city, which surrounds the course.
The fairways are rolling, the trees that line the holes are numerous and high, the bunkers are deep and uniquely shaped -- there are even deer that live within the walled grounds of the course. This is truly an oasis in the center of Los Angeles.
