ABOUT PALOS VERDES GOLF CLUB
The golf course was designed in 1924 by the renowned team of George C. Thomas and William P. “Billy” Bell who also designed Riviera CC, Bel Air CC, Los Angeles CC North and the course at Ojai Valley Inn. Fairways and rough are Kikuyu grass. Greens, firm and fast, are composed of bent and poa annua grasses.
The course is a classic example of Thomas and Bell designs of the 1920’s with extensive use of natural hazards. The premium is on accuracy rather than length. The small greens, extensive bunkering, narrow fairways with strategically designed landing areas make the course a challenge for golfers of all levels. Members pride in preserving the original design and routing of this masterpiece.
The back nine is known as a “perfect nine” in that there are no two consecutive holes of the same par - thirteen of the original eighteen holes had ocean views. The views make for a memorable experience. With six sets of tees it is enjoyable and challenging for players of all abilities. Fore Magazine referred to it as “the hidden gem” in Southern California.
