|General Tournament Information|
What started as the Los Angeles Open in 1926 at Los Angeles Country Club, the Northern Trust Open is now one of the longest-running tournaments on the PGA TOUR. It was staged at various courses throughout the Los Angeles area before permanently settling at Riviera Country Club in 1973. Outside of the major championships, the Northern Trust Open is the fourth-oldest event on TOUR, trailing only the BMW Championship, the RBC Canadian Open and the Valero Texas Open.
The Northern Trust Open continues a PGA TOUR tradition of giving back, strengthening individuals, families and their communities through innovative and responsive philanthropic programs. The 2013 Northern Trust Open raised $1.3 million for non-profit organizations in the Los Angeles area, bringing the total generated for Los Angeles charities since the event's inception to nearly $56.5 million.
