Bel-Air Country Club

Private: A course for members and their invited guests only.

Est. 1925

Bel-Air Country Club is located just off Sunset Boulevard, in the foothills of the Santa Monica mountains. This much lauded George C. Thomas design, excellently renovated by Tom Doak, winds through the mansion-dotted canyons of Bel-Air, Los Angeles.

Meandering its way through Stone Canyon on the front-nine loop, and Dry Canyon on the back-nine, the terrain is so steep at times that golfers are occasionally required to move from hole to hole via a tunnel and an elevator. The club's renowned suspension bridge, spans a gulch on the par-3 10th, while serving as a dramatic backdrop for the par-4 18th green.
