A fascinating history in words and pictures of one of the top 100 golf courses in the world. Initially designed as a nine-hole golf course, the LAGC eventually developed into 36 holes of golf and tennis courts. The original golf course was laid out by Joe Sartori, Ed Tufts, Norman Macbeth, and Charles Orr. Later, the courses were redesigned by Herbert Fowler and George C. Thomas, Jr., and again by Thomas with William P. Bell in 1927-28.
