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

About the Club

Founded in 1947, Brentwood Country Club was created by a group of visionaries as a family club. The founding members purchased an existing golf course, which had been operating since 1905. 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. The Club is open year-round.

Today, Brentwood Country Club is a family-centric Club that offers its 700 members and their families access to a recently renovated 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, two pickleball courts, a full-service tennis shop, a 4,000 square foot fitness center and exercise studios, a pool offering poolside dining, and a bocce court. 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 Brentwood Cafe, currently under renovation.  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. It is located on the west side of Los Angeles and three miles from the beaches along Santa Monica Bay.
