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.

The Masters: The 88th Masters Tournament at Augusta National sees LIV golfer Jon Rahm defend his title against the world’s best. Pressing hard will be world No.1 and 2022 champion Scottie Scheffler and world No.2 Rory McIlroy (April 11-14).

Chevron Championship: the women’s major championship season gets underway for the second year at its new Carlton Woods home outside Houston, Texas. World No.2 Lilia Vu defends (April 18-21).

Who's Who

Nelly Korda: records a perfect start to 2024 with five wins out of her last five starts on the LPGA Tour. Winning the Chevron Championship also brought the second major championship win of her career.

Scottie Scheffler: narrowly missed out on matching Nelly Korda's five wins in five starts, when he placed second at the Houston Open. Either side of that, he won The Arnold Palmer, The Players, and then The Masters and The Heritage.

Marco Simone Golf & Country Club: With a clubhouse that might befit a Roman Emperor, and a golf course to match, you can be sure of a memorable outing at Rome's most talked about golf facility.
