Check the yardage book: Riviera Country Club for the Genesis Invitational

Riviera Country Club in Pacific Palisades, California – site of this week’s Genesis Invitational on the PGA Tour – was designed by George C. Thomas and William P. Bell and opened in 1927.

Riviera ranks No. 4 in California on Golfweek’s Best list of private courses, and it is No. 18 on Golfweek’s Best list of all classic courses built in the U.S. before 1960.

This week will be the 59th time the club has hosted what has become the Genesis Invitational, and it also has hosted three major championships. Ben Hogan won the 1948 U.S. Open at Riviera, with Hal Sutton (1983) and Steve Elkington (1995) having won PGA Championships there. It is slated as the host site for the 2026 U.S. Women’s Open and the 2028 Olympics golf competition.

It will play at 7,322 yards with a par of 71 for the Genesis.

Thanks to yardage books provided by StrackaLine – the maker of detailed yardage books for thousands of courses around the world – we can see exactly the challenges the pros face this week. Check out the maps of each hole below.
