The North Course, Los Angeles Country Club course details and restoration.
Originally laid out as a nine-hole course named the Windmill Links, the Los Angeles Country Club expanded to 18 holes in 1899. Further enhancements, including the addition of another 18-hole course, were made by George Clifford Thomas Jr. and Herbert Fowler, renowned golf course architects. In 2010, Gill Hanse and Geoff Shackelford meticulously restored the North Course to its original design, bringing back its essence.
