George Thomas was an active designer in the early 1900s, especially in southern California, where he teamed up with William Bell. Thomas inherited a fortune, so for him design more of a pastime, and he may not even have been paid for some of his courses. Riviera became known for its celebrity clientele and as a venue for the LA Open, in which Ben Hogan emerged victorious repeatedly in the 1940s. Situated on low ground where drainage can be a problem, the club relies on sturdy kikuyu grass for its greens and fairways. Attempts have been made to restore the Riviera to its place as a site for the Open, first in 1993 by Ben Crenshaw, and then by Tom Fazio in 2007, but were unsuccessful, though the club is slated to host the US Amateur in 2017. The sprawling, Spanish colonial-style clubhouse surveys the course and offers fine amenities.

Riviera CC is a classic course in Southern California. Hollywood star homes line the course and it has a rich championship history. The sand bunkers are probably the best in America.

Started at 6am as a favor. Shot 72 and the feeling of being in the middle of the country side in the middle of LA. Top 5 course in the world
