The Riviera Lifestyle is celebrated in this neighborhood of luxury homes, scenic views, and the Riviera Country Club.
The country club was established in the mid 1920’s and offers sophistication as well as many amenities. The dream of this resort was built with the inspiration of an appreciation for life. The founders believed that members should have the very best in services including the freshest ingredients for the dining room kitchens and environmentally sound considerations to all aspects of the country club. Members also believe in the club’s “healthy for life” philosophy and there is plenty here to keep them active with golf, tennis, and the spectacular clubhouse.
The surrounding luxury homes feature charming traditional architecture on peaceful streets. Living areas are spacious with hardwood floors, French doors, and fireplaces as well as beautiful formal dining rooms. The gourmet kitchens have updated appliances, granite countertops, and cozy breakfast nooks. And the master suites have lots of room with walk-in closets. Outdoor entertaining is extremely enjoyable with the added benefit of the golf course view. The Los Angeles Unified School District assigns facilities to this area like Brentwood Science School, Paul Revere Middle School, and Palisades Charter High School.
The golf course was designed by Riviera’s own George Thomas and has been the hosting facility to a US Open, a US Senior Open, and two PGA championships. Many legends have played here like Sam Snead, Tom Watson, Nick Faldo, and Phil Mickelson. And celebrities like Dean Martin, Howard Hughes, and Humphrey Bogart frequented this course.
This is also the location of the Riviera Tennis Club which is one of the largest and oldest tennis clubs in the western region of the United States. Founded in 1963, it has 22 hard courts as well as two ball machine courts. The RTC also offers one of the biggest teaching programs of any tennis club in the nation with 14 teaching pros. It has more than 1,000 active members.
