Riviera CC -- Pacific Palisades Calif

RSS

Northern Trust OpenThis week the PGA TOUR returns to Riviera Country Club in Pacific Palisades, Calif., for the Northern Trust Open, where GCSAA Class A Golf Course Superintendent Matt Morton has made some extensions to Nos. 11 and 17 greens, providing those holes some new pin positions.
 
He says the turf is tremendously healthy due in large part to 12 inches of rain since November, about two inches more than usual. The course plays in a bowl in the Santa Monica Valley and rises to a crescendo on the last hole. Riviera is one of the most interesting courses in the game when it comes to forcing a player to think their way around the bunkers and doglegs, along the angled approaches into the greens.
