The Wilshire Country Club was bordered by North Rossmore Avenue on the east, West 3rd Street on the south, Melrose Avenue on the north, and Hudson Avenue on the west.

The Wilshire Country Club Golf Course was designed in 1919 by Norman Macbeth. It was built on land obtained from George Allan Hancock, whose father, Major Henry Hancock (02/22/1822-01/19/1883)was a pioneer surveyor and lawyer in Los Angeles, having arrived there in 1849.
