124th U.S. Open

Pinehurst No. 2

Palos Verdes Golf Club

Palos Verdes Estates, CA, United States Private


Though it’s not a long course, tipping out around 6,500 yards, Palos Verdes incorporates many aspects of George Thomas’ design philosophy, most notably having the course play with the land. At Palos Verdes, Thomas (along with Billy Bell) used barrancas, creeks and the hillsides to create natural hazards that shape the ideal line of play. Interestingly, on the front nine, no two consecutive holes have the same par. The course hosted the 2023 DIO Implant Open on the LPGA Tour.
