Although most of George C. Thomas’ best works—Los Angeles Country Club, Riviera, Ojai Valley—are in Southern California, he ventured north with design associate Billy Bell Sr. to build Stanford’s 6,869-yard layout, which opened in 1930. Located in the foothills, the Stanford has plenty of elevation changes and on a clear day, it is possible to see San Francisco, 30 miles to the north.
