This private golf club is located in Pacific Palisades in Southern California. Originally designed by noted golf course architects George C. Thomas, Jr. and William Bell, it was established in 1926 under the name Los Angeles Athletic Club Golf Course. Several modifications have been made, and now the course is a par 71. For many years, the course has been the home of the Genesis Open, an annual winter event on the PGA Tour. In addition, it has hosted the US Open, the PGA Championship, the US Senior Open and the US Amateur. To see one of the events at the club, purchase Riviera Country Club tickets at StubHub.
Where can I park?
When attending major Riviera Country Club events, you'll be directed to park in Santa Monica public parking lots. There are lots on Fourth and Second Streets near Wilshire Boulevard. Note that all of the streets around the club will be restricted to public traffic during major events. Upgraded parking is available for an additional fee at the Will Rogers State Historic Park, which is a bit closer to the entrance of the venue.
Are there shuttles that can take me to the entrance gates?
During Riviera Country Club tournaments, complimentary shuttles run between Downtown Santa Monica and the club. The pick-up/drop-off location is on Wilshire, between Second and Third streets.
What can I bring with me?
You can bring plastic bags so long as they are under 12 inches by 12 inches by 6 inches. You may also bring 1-gallon clear, resealable plastic bags or opaque bags no larger than six inches on all sides. Mobile devices are allowed, but they must be set on silent mode. Collapsible chairs and binoculars (both without their carrying cases or bags), strollers, umbrellas and portable radios are permitted.
Is there anywhere to eat or grab a drink?
There are numerous concession stands and restaurants serving up a variety of food and beverages. The Promenade behind the 14th green is where food trucks are brought in to give people plenty of choices. At the Landing along the 18th fairway, there is SLAB barbecue and a beer garden. The ULTRA Club offers refreshing drinks on the 2nd green, and the Vineyard Vines Club at the 10th hole has both food and beverages you can enjoy during The Riviera Country Club events.
Do children need their own tickets?
Children 15 years old or younger can enter for free with a ticketed adult. Teenagers and students can purchase discounted tickets.
Are there upgrades available?
The general grounds admission tickets that are the typical Riviera Country Club tickets you receive give you access to many locations on the course. If you'd like access to premium viewing spots and exclusive food and beverage packages, consider getting a ticket package. The Backlot on 18 Green, The Bluffs on 14, Greenside at 17 and Clubhouse Tickets are all options that come with various perks.Back to Top
