The Riviera Country Club was founded in 1926 by the members of the Los Angeles Athletic Club.
The club called upon George C. Thomas to design a course that would challenge the world's best. After 18 months and 15 iterations of his design, his masterpiece and crowning achievement opened for play.
The Riviera Country Club is consistently ranked a top 50 golf course in the world and in the top 25 courses in the United States.
The course is a par 71 with a length of 7,013 yards (6,413 m) from the back tees, which has been lengthened to 7,322 yards (6,695 m) for Tour play.
The club is scheduled to host the Olympics in 2028.
