For this year’s U.S. Open, the players will compete on the iconic North Course, a masterpiece of golf course architecture designed by the legendary George C. Thomas Jr. and Billy Bell Sr. in the 1920s. The North Course has consistently ranked among the top 100 golf courses worldwide, solidifying its reputation as a premier golfing destination.

From the iconic Spanish Colonial Revival-style clubhouse, which overlooks the course, to the recently upgraded practice facilities and locker rooms, the LACC has spared no expense in ensuring that the U.S. Open is a memorable experience for all involved.
Another noteworthy aspect of this year’s tournament is the Club’s dedication to sustainability. The LACC has made great strides in reducing water usage and incorporating eco-friendly practices.
As a result, the Club has been recognized by the California Golf Course Owners Association with the 2021 Community Environmental Award, demonstrating its commitment to preserving the environment and its natural resources.
