Brentwood Country Club | Los Angeles, California
General Manager/COO

About the Club
Nestled in the heart of one of L.A.’s most desirable neighborhoods, cooled by the ocean breezes just minutes away, Brentwood Country Club has been a warm, welcoming, “home away from home” for members and their guests since 1948. The Club was created by a group of visionaries as a family club. Notably, the founders intended the club to be predominantly, yet not exclusively, a Jewish club. It has remained true to these principles throughout its history and has established itself as a premier family and neighborhood club primarily drawing almost 80% of its members from the communities of Brentwood, Santa Monica and Pacific Palisades.

Today, Brentwood Country Club is a luxurious family-centric club that offers its 700 members and their families access to a stunning 18-hole golf course that includes a driving range, a putting green and a short game area, a full-service golf pro shop and a state-of-the-art Golf Performance Center.  Other amenities include six tennis courts, five pickleball courts, a full-service tennis shop, a 4,000 square foot fitness center and exercise studios and a pool offering poolside dining. The Spanish-style clubhouse offers an upscale adult gathering spot for drinks and dining in its recently renovated Tavern, an exceptional dining experience for families in its Dining Room (lunch and dinner), as well as more casual lunch and breakfast options in the brand-new Brentwood Cafe.  In addition, the clubhouse has a Grille for casual socializing, two card rooms, a lounge, full-service men’s’ and women’s’ locker rooms with spa treatment rooms and a barber shop.

Brentwood Country Club operates as a 501(c)7 entity and has operated at full capacity for many years. The club currently has a waitlist of over 50 families. It is located on the west side of Los Angeles and three miles from the beaches along Santa Monica Bay. The club is open year-round. The clubhouse and golf course are closed on Mondays. Gross revenue exceeds $24 million with Food & Beverage accounting for $17 million. There are 170 staff members at the height of season and a total of 700 memberships today.
