Set on the northern slopes of Palos Verdes overlooking the city of Los Angeles we have been given the opportunity to create essentially a new golf course for an existing club.
The original golf course was set within narrow parcels of land, partially owned, partially leased over the 50 year tenure of the club, a great location but a compromised site that never achieved the ambitions of the membership. Fate stepped in with the ultimate golfing opportunity, the neighboring sand quarry was mined out and required restoration. Music to a golf designers’ ears.
We set about designing a new golf course around a new clubhouse set on a bench on the Palos Verdes Hill mostly over the old sand quarry. The mining past of the site was lost under a massive restoration project. Completion is scheduled for 2017.
