With ocean views, meticulous conditions and classic architecture, Palos Verdes Golf Club is a high-end private club that's a treat to play. The course opened in 1924 with George C, Thomas and William P. Bell as the architects of record. It was redesigned in 1977 by Ted Robinson St. At 6,433 yards, this par 71 isn't particularly long, but the natural terrain, barrancas, creeks and hills, as well as small greens, extensive bunkering, narrow fairways and ever-present Pacific breezes make this a pretty good challenge for all players. More importantly, Palo Verdes Golf Club, which underwent an extensive restoration in 2013, is enjoyable and beautiful. Fourteen of holes have ocean views. The front nine has no two holes in a row that are the same par. The club's magnificent clubhouse, which was renovated in the mid-2000s, is a popular venue for weddings and special events. It also includes a golf shop and restaurant. Palos Verdes also has excellent practice facilities, including a driving range, putting green and short-game area.
