Riviera is consistently ranked as one of the top courses in the U.S. and the World by Golf Magazine's panel of experts.

This landmark club in Pacific Palisades has been the home course for many celebrities over the years. The current home of the Northern Trust Open, the Riviera has hosted three major championships: the 1948 U.S. Open, won by Ben Hogan; the 1983 PGA Championship, won by Hal Sutton; and the 1995 PGA Championship, won by Steve Elkington.

In 1992, the greens and bunkers were renovated by Ben Crenshaw and Bill Coore in an attempt to restore them to their original design. The course is a constant presence in GOLF Magazine's rankings of the Top 100 Courses in the U.S. and the World. For more information go to therivieracountryclub.com.

In his article, My Fab 5, GOLF Magazine Top 100 Teacher Mike Bender says Riviera is one of his all-time favorite courses.

"Like almost every other golfer, I've always been fascinated by Ben Hogan, and The Hawk won so often on this course it seemed like he owned the place. In 1988 I played in the L.A. Open at Riviera with Hal Sutton, who'd previously won a PGA Championship on the course. Shooting a lower score than he did meant a lot to me."
