Riviera is a classic George C. Thomas design. There are so many unique holes to get to experience. The par 3, 6th hole has a bunker in the middle of the green. You can play your shot halfway up the hill to the 7th tee and the ball will roll back down to the pin on the 6th green.
In addition to 6, you have the famous par 4, 10th hole. There is no where safe to drive your golf ball. A layup to the middle of the fairway leaves you with a narrow green to play towards with bunkers guarding all sides. You can easily go from bunker to bunker. It's a fantastic design!
The tee shot at 18 is tough because you need to the left side of the fairway that slopes left to right. That leaves you with a 200 yard cut shot to an elevated green.
Overall it's a bucket list course to play and in a beautiful setting.
I recommend this course
