How can you play at Los Angeles Country Club?

Here is how you can play 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 set up a nine-hole course called the Windmill Links.

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

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

On May 30, 1911, the new club at Beverly Hills was opened with 36 holes and this venue has served as the club’s home since that day.

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 made.

The North Course, this year’s US Open host venue, was unveiled in 2010 after one of George Thomas’ best designs was restored over five years.

Starting in 2015, the clubhouse was renovated over 16 months, and later that year, Gil Hanse began to redesign 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 now it is set to become a US Open golf course, and the first major to be held in Los Angeles for 28 years.

Having seen the performances of Brooks Koepka at the PGA Championship, and Jon Rahm at the Masters, golf fans will descend upon LACC to see who will hoist America’s Open trophy.

Winning the US Open is one of the great achievements in the game as one of its four major championships and many stars from the PGA Tour and LIV Golf will hope to peak at the right time this summer.

How to play Los Angeles Country Club

Unless you are a top professional player or an elite amateur who has qualified for the golf tournament, it appears difficult to book a spot at Los Angeles Country Club.

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

You can play the course by being invited by a LACC member.

According to the website, the club “take pride in making every one of our guests feel like a member during your visit with us.”

A membership at Los Angeles Country Club doesn’t come cheap either. The reported full membership initiation fee is between $300,000 to $500,000, while the annual fees supposedly stand between $20,000 and $30,000 per year.
