Few golf course designers have left a bigger mark than Robert Muir Graves, whose impressive body of work spanned a 50-year career. Graves designed a host of celebrated courses in California, including La Purisima, Boundary Oak, and Quail Lodge Golf Club. He worked primarily on the West Coast, but built courses as far away as Portugal.
Highly respected by his peers, Graves served as President of the American Society of Golf Course Architects (ASGCA) in 1974-75 and co-authored Golf Course Design and Classic Golf Hole Architecture with Geoffrey Cornish. At Westridge Golf Club, Graves collaborated with protégé Damian Pascuzzo, a distinguished architect in his own right.
Architects Robert Muir Graves and Damian Pascuzzo utilized all this and more to craft one of Orange County’s most popular courses. Westridge Golf Club’s challenges include more than 60 sand bunkers protecting fairways and greens, water hazards on holes 7, 9, and 13, a ravine crossing the 5th fairway, sloping greens that match the rolling landscape, and uphill and downhill shots requiring instinctive club section. The varied topography and Pacific breezes present subtle obstacles that reward versatile golf skills. The course’s elevation opens to grand vistas of Orange and LA counties with the towering San Gabriel Mountains nearby, while native flowers and wildlife create a sense of seclusion. Westridge Golf Club was recently named 2012 Best of La Habra for public golf courses. We are conveniently located only a short distance from three major freeways on Beach and Imperial. Opened in 1999 and tucked away in the hills of La Habra, Westridge offers golfers a challenging par-72 layout measuring 6,256 yards.
