Riviera Country Club in Pacific Palisades, California – one of the highest-ranked courses on the PGA Tour schedule each season – was designed by George C. Thomas and William P. Bell and opened in 1927. It hosts the 2023 Genesis Invitational this week, the 60th time the tournament has been at the course near Los Angeles.
Riviera will play to 7,322 yards with a par of 71 for the Genesis Invitational.
Besides hosting the Tour each year, Riviera will be the site of the 2026 U.S. Women’s Open and the 2028 Olympic Golf competition. It was home to the 1948 U.S. Open won by Ben Hogan as well as the 1983 PGA Championship (Hal Sutton), the 1995 PGA Championship (Steve Elkington) and the 1998 U.S. Senior Open (Hale Irwin).
