Overlap or interlock. Tiger or Phil. Distance or rollback. If you spend any time online following golfers, you’ll quickly realize that one’s particular way of speaking on the game (“Golfing isn’t a word!”) can produce such hatred in other golf fans you’d think someone’s grandmother was just told to fix her own tire or open her own door. One thing we can agree on is Riviera Country Club. Every golf fan loves Riviera. How can you not? Riviera, in the modern age, is perfect. It isn’t an overly long golf course, but it still beats up the best in the world every year. It isn’t majestic, in the traditional sense, lacking ocean views or mountain vistas, but it’s...

No. 10 at Riviera Country Club is one of the classic short holes in golf, confounding the PGA Tour’s best each year in the Genesis Invitational. It seems as though it should be an easy birdie for Tour pros, but disaster is always lurking. Besides having hosted the Genesis – formerly the Los Angeles Open – for 57 years, Riviera has been the site of three men’s majors: the 1948 U.S. Open (Ben Hogan won), the 1983 PGA Championship (Hal Sutton) and the 1995 PGA Championship (Steve Elkington). With challenges like No. 10, it’s no wonder the majors were won by some...

    (CBS Los Angeles)- The PGA Tour wraps up its West Coast swing this weekend with a trip to one of the tour’s longest-running courses, Riviera Country Club, for the Genesis Invitational. Opened in 1927, Riviera, designed by George C. Thomas, is a shot-making challenge with its numerous doglegs and tilted greens. Ben Hogan won the 1948 U.S. Open and two L.A. Opens in a span of 18 months, thus it is called “Hogan’s Alley.” Today the par-71 layout measures 7,322 yards. The famed layout in Pacific Palisades, California, first hosted a tour event in 1929.

    An exclusive California golf course that has counted Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin among its members is seeing plenty of the taxpayers’ green. The Riviera Country Club, located in a posh enclave of Los Angeles, received $2 million to $5 million in assistance through the Paycheck Protection Program—a multibillion-dollar initiative intended to carry small businesses and their employees through the COVID-19 pandemic. Mnuchin, whose Department of the Treasury has assisted in the operation of the program, disclosed his membership in the elite institution to the U.S. Senate during his confirmation process in 2017. The Small Business Administration released PPP recipient data on Monday amid mounting pressure to do so.  Neither the Riviera nor the Department of the Treasury immediately responded to a request for comment, making it impossible to confirm whether Mnuchin is still involved with the organization. But Politico reported in April 2018 that the Treasury Secretary had been sighted...
