Griffith Park is the birthplace of Los Angeles municipal golf and heralds two early gems of golf course design. The GPGC has dozens of tournaments each year with Individual Stroke Play Format, that are played on both weekends and week days. Most tournaments have prizes for Long Drive, Closest to Pin, Gross and Net Skins contests and Low Scores for multiple Flights. There is a Christmas Shotgun Tournament with Banquet and General Club Meeting planned each year. The Annual Club Championship is held between July and September.
