The first-ever LA Club Classic was held recently with Members from Porter Valley Country Club (Northridge, California); Braemar Country Club (Tarzana, California) and City Club LA enjoying a fun-filled weekend that included a Saturday night cocktail reception at the City Club LA and Sunday golf tournament at Braemar followed by an award ceremony.
Mingling among Members during the cocktail hour spurred a friendly competition that fired up the players for the next day’s tournament. The day of the tournament, participants and their family members attended a brunch hosted at Braemar, where Executive Chef James Morris showcased a variety of dishes and got rave reviews afterward.
During the tournament, two players from each club were teamed with two players from another club, leading to new friendships on the course. To spur on the competition, Director of Golf, Seth Jamison, included two closest-to-the-pin and longest-drive contests, with beverage stops along the way.
The day ended with an awards ceremony on the club’s scenic patio that was attended by the golfers as well as their family members. First, second, and third place teams received engraved LA Club Classic 2014 beer mugs and, after combining the top five scores from each club, Braemar was named the winning club and received the LA Club Classic Trophy to be displayed at the club until next year. Members were thrilled to represent their home club in this year’s tournament and are looking forward to playing again next year.
Live from Los Angeles!
Professional golfer and international household name, Tiger Woods, visited our very own beautiful Braemar Country Club in Los Angeles, Calif. on Friday afternoon to do an interview with CNBC.

Los Angeles, the second most-populated city in the United States, is known for being home to many colorful cultures.
For its’ 2012 Charity Classic event on Friday night, October 5,2012, The City Club on Bunker Hill in LA decided to explore the culinary diversity of the city.
At the event, dubbed “Love in LA”, attendees enjoyed a wonderful four-corner station dinner, representing the Latin, Middle Eastern, Asian and American corners of the city, with delicious wine pairings.
The event, which was open to the public, had more than 150 guests. In addition to supporting three worthy causes, throughout the course of the night attendees were entertained by a magician, enjoyed live jazz music, participated in a silent auction and were given a once-in-a-lifetime opportuity to kiss a pig.
Yes, for a charitable donation, you could have kissed a pig. And many participants did, since Bueller the Pig 'single-hoovedly' raised over $1,000!
The event raised almost $18,000 for MDA’s Augie’s Quest, The Employee Partner Care Foundation, and the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Youth Foundation.
The LA Sheriff’s Youth Foundation strives to offer safe alternative opportunities to at-risk youth in Los Angeles County, a county notoriously plagued by gangs, drugs and violence. These opportunities focus on activities for the youth that build character, instill leadership skills, boost self-esteem and help them establish a positive outlook on their own life and future.
Thank you to all the organizers at The City Club and to all who attended and made the event such a great success!
