PALOS VERDES GOLF CLUB:
The course at
Palos Verdes Golf Club is a perfect example of architects George Thomas and
William Bell’s genius. While not long in length at 6219 yards, their use of the
natural terrain, barrancas, creeks, and hills while taking into account
prevailing westerly ocean breezes combined with small greens, extensive
bunkering, narrow fairways with strategically designed landing areas, presents
a challenge for golfers of all levels. Members have taken great care in preserving
the original design and routing of this masterpiece. The front nine is known as
a “perfect nine” in that there are no two consecutive holes of the same par.
Thirteen of the original eighteen holes had ocean views (a Thomas hallmark).
The fourth hole, a 213 yd. par 3, is framed by snow-capped Mt. Baldy during the
winter season. The views make playing this gem a memorable experience. With
four sets of tees it is likewise enjoyable and challenging for players of all
abilities. Fore magazine recently referred to it as “the hidden gem” in
The golf course
was designed in 1924 by the renowned team of Thomas and Bell who went on to
design Riviera CC, Bel Air CC, Los Angeles CC North Course and the course at
Ojai Valley Inn. It is a regulation 18 hole par 71 golf course and is rated
71.3 from the black tees and 70.4 from the blue tees. Fairways and rough are
Kikuyu grass. Greens firm and fast, are composed of bent and poa annua grasses.
The course is a classic example of Thomas / Bell designs of the1920’s with
extensive use of natural hazards. The premium is on accuracy rather than
