The Los Angeles Country Club | Los Angeles, California
Clubhouse Manager

About The Club
The Los Angeles Country Club was founded in 1897 by a group of Angelenos looking to bring the new game of golf to Los Angeles. Its existing location was built in 1911 and its Clubhouse, tennis courts and 36 holes of golf have served its 1500 Members ever since. In 2010, a redesign of the iconic North Course was unveiled to restore George Thomas’ original great design. The North Course now enjoys national recognition as one of the most beautiful and challenging courses in the country. In recent years, the Club has completed a full restoration of the Clubhouse, Golf Shop and South Course. The Los Angeles Country Club hosted the 46th Walker Cup Match in September 2017 and was the host for the 2023 U.S. Open Championship.

The Club is regarded as an oasis in the middle of Los Angeles with Members and staff who appreciate the history and traditions of the Club. In its 100-year history, the Club has played host to the Los Angeles Open Tournament in 1926, 1934, 1935, 1936, and 1940, as well as numerous amateur championships.

The Los Angeles Country Club offers unparalleled amenities, including two renowned 18-hole championship golf courses celebrated for their challenging design and impeccable conditioning. Members can refine their skills at the state-of-the-art driving range and short game area, enjoy the Club’s fitness center equipped with cutting-edge cardio and weightlifting equipment, and indulge in personal training services. The Olympic-sized heated swimming pool provides a relaxing space for laps or sun-soaked leisure. The Club caters to tennis enthusiasts with 12 tennis courts, including clay and hard courts. Further enhancing the member experience, the Club offers spa and wellness services featuring massages and facials for relaxation and rejuvenation.

Culinary delights await with various dining options, including a casual Grill Room, an upscale Main Dining Room, and a stylish bar and lounge area, where the culinary team is acclaimed for crafting exceptional cuisine with locally sourced ingredients and classic American dishes.

Gross revenue is $30 million, with dues at $18 million, F&B revenue accounting for $6 million, and 20% of the F&B revenue is from private events. There are 250 employees in season and 1,600 members. The Club is open 12 months a year.
