Bel-Air Country Club in Los Angeles is firmly on the U.S. Golf Association’s championship schedule. The prestigious private club will show up as a backdrop to three amateur championships over the next decade: the 2023 U.S. Women’s Amateur Championship, 2026 Curtis Cup Match and 2030 U.S. Mid-Amateur Championship.
Most recently, Bel-Air was the stroke-play companion course to the 2017 U.S. Amateur at Riviera Country Club. It previously hosted two USGA championships: 1976 U.S. Amateur and the 2004 U.S. Senior Amateur.
“Bel-Air is one of the country’s most prestigious courses, steeped in golf history, and we couldn’t be more excited to celebrate three more USGA championships there,” said John Bodenhamer, senior managing director of Championships, USGA. “The USGA is looking forward to continuing to build our relationship with this esteemed club.”
Located in the heart of Los Angeles, Bel-Air is a private club with an 18-hole course originally designed by George Thomas and recently renovated by Tom Doak and Renaissance Golf Design. The course is known for its dramatic topography as well as the impressive suspension bridge that spans a canyon on the 225-yard par-3 10th and serves as a stunning backdrop for the 18th hole.
