The course was developed in 1919, under a land lease from owner G. Allan Hancock to a group of local business men. Normal McBeth, an accomplished Californian golfer of the day, was hired to design the course. Norman was allowed free reign to do whatever he wanted. He took careful consideration of space, and prevailing west wind when designing the course. Kyle Phillips updated the course. Kyle added additional bunkers, and made the bunkers deeper. Later on, Beverly Boulevard would come to intersect the Hancock Park golf course, dividing it in two, separating between the front and back nine- as it is present day.
The course is known for its gorgeous greens. The course occupies 107 acres. There is a stream running through the center of the course.
The original club house was demolished and a new club house was built in 1971. The club house has two stories- the lower level contains men’s and women’s locker rooms, suana and massage rooms, Exercise Room, bar, two pool tables, barber shop, and pro shop. The upper level has offices, formal dinning, card room, and two private dinning rooms.
