Burbank is no stranger to hosting movie stars at its doorstep, but this summer golfers take center stage in Los Angeles for the 2023 U.S. Open Golf Championship, a tournament established by the United States Golf Association (USGA) 123 years ago. From June 12-18, this prestigious national championship, and its surrounding events will be hosted for the public at Los Angeles Country Club (LACC) – just a short drive from all the action in Burbank, CA.

This is the first time that the U.S. Open will be held at Los Angeles Country Club. The modern U.S. Open has become an extravagant tournament, involving tens of thousands of spectators. Thanks to Los Angeles Country Club’s 325 acres and two separate golf courses, the North Course and the South Course, designed by Gil Hanse, they can accommodate the massive popularity of this year’s event. This historic 2023 U.S. Open golf championship is one you don’t want to miss with major golfers qualifying like Matt Fitzpatrick, Brooks Koepka, Rory Mcilroy, and Dustin Johnson. Plus, the Los Angeles Country Club is just minutes off both the 405 and 101 freeways, making it an easy drive to Burbank’s many hotels and attractions.
