It has hosted many championships including the anuual Los Angeles Open, The U.S PGA and the 1948 US Open won by the legendary Ben Hogan.
With Hollywood just around the corner, the membership reads like a list of the rich and famous.
You just never know who you are going to bump into!

The tenth hole is a short, strategic, drivable par 4.
The narrow green runs at an angle to the tee, and is well protected by bunkers front and back.
For those that are blessed with the length it is perhaps an eagle opportunity.
However for most of us the clear intent will be to make the approach with a short iron from the left- hitting down the length of the green between the bunkers.
The trick is in placing the tee shot so this is possible.
Imposing fairway bunkering encroaches into the fairway first from the right and then from the left challenging the tee shot.
It's a fantastic golf hole!
