Course Description

The course at Palos Verdes Golf Club is a perfect example of architects George Thomas and William Bell’s genius. While not long in length at 6219 yards, their use of the natural terrain, barrancas, creeks, and hills while taking into account prevailing westerly ocean breezes combined with small greens, extensive bunkering, narrow fairways with strategically designed landing areas, presents a challenge for golfers of all levels. Members have taken great care in preserving the original design and routing of this masterpiece. The front 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 (a Thomas hallmark). The fourth hole, a 213 yd. par 3, is framed by snow-capped Mt. Baldy during the winter season. The views make playing this gem a memorable experience. With six sets of tees it is likewise enjoyable and challenging for players of all abilities. Fore magazine recently referred to it as “the hidden gem” in Southern California.

The golf course was designed in 1924 by the renowned team of  Thomas and  Bell who went on to design Riviera CC, Bel Air CC, Los Angeles CC North Course and the course at Ojai Valley Inn. It is a regulation 18 hole par 71 golf course and is rated 71.3 from the black tees and 70.4 from the blue tees. 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 / Bell designs of the 1920’s with extensive use of natural hazards. The premium is on accuracy rather than length.

The first hole is a slight dogleg to the right Par 4 that can play longer into a prevailing wind. A good drive avoids the left-hand fairway bunker and carries the ridge to set up a short to medium approach shot. Your approach will play uphill to an elevated green that is bunkered to the left and right. Beware of the false front of this redesigned green as short shots will roll back down to the fairway.
