The U.S. Open Championship returns to Los Angeles for the first time in 75 years with the playing of the 123rd edition at The Los Angeles Country Club’s North Course from June 15-18. The championship was last played in Greater Los Angeles when Ben Hogan won the first of his four U.S. Opens in 1948 at The Riviera Country Club.
In 1927, legendary golf course architect and LACC member George C. Thomas Jr. redesigned the North Course, later called his greatest design. In 2010, a five-year restoration project was completed by noted architect Gil Hanse. Archived photos, written documents and physical unearthing of landforms provided the framework for a finished product that reflects the past.
