History of the Course
William P. Bell, whose early works included Bel-Air Country Club and Riviera Country Club, designed the original 18 holes in 1946. As they stood at the foot of the great Valley Oak, Billy Bell stated: “This is a great site for a golf course.” The sandy soil and gentle rolling terrain allowed Billy Bell to create yet another classic.

Architect Robert Muir Graves, whose work includes Sea Ranch and Black Butte, designed the River 9. After many years of negotiations with government officials and environmentalists over the plight of the valley elderberry longhorn beetle, this 150-acre combination of riparian habitat and golf course was constructed in 1996 and opened in 1997.

In 1998, architect John Harbottle, who has overseen reconstruction efforts at Los Angeles Country Club and the design of Stanford Golf Course, supervised reconstruction of all tees, greens, and bunkers on William Bell’s 18-hole layout. Harbottle also redesigned the #9 Bluff hole in 2002.
