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.

Latest Golf Course Reviews

Traigh Golf Course (pronounced "try", and meaning "beach" in Gaelic): You'll find this nine-hole seaside gem on the scenic coast road (as opposed to the more inland and quicker A830) between Arisaig and Morar. Although not on the well-beaten path of Scotland's "trophy" courses, if you are passing through this area, it's a must play.

Cullen Links Golf Club: "immensely scenic", "quirky as golf can get", "short!", "hugely enjoyable" ... Cullen Links attracts as wide a variety of comments as it lays down golfing challenges. Shoehorned into this 4,600 yard treasure trove are ten par-3s, seven par-4s and a good-length par-5. Here you'll find all the seaside scenery a golfer could ask for, and a lot more besides.
