On behalf of the City of Long Beach Department of Parks, Recreation and Marine, welcome to our Golf Operations website, www.cityoflongbeachgolf.com. The purpose of this website is to keep you – our residents and customers – up to date on the happenings on or at our five great golf courses.
Golf courses are unique, as both recreational facilities and park open spaces, and lend an important scenic value to the community. In today's society, leisure time has increased dramatically with our rising standard of living. The general public has more time on their hands with shorter working hours, shift-work, more holidays and longer vacation periods. With this increase in leisure, there is a greater need than ever before to provide better and more golf course areas and facilities.
The game of golf is now within the income bracket of a majority of the public, and is recognized as a lifetime sport for all age groups, including male and female, juniors and senior citizens, as well as the handicapped.
When the President of the United States started playing golf in the 1950's and television exposed golfing greats, the likes of Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus and Gary Player, the popularity of golf increased by leaps and bounds. The emergence of Tiger Woods – who began playing the game at Long Beach's own Heartwell Park Golf Course, has only increased the exposure and popularity of the game. Most people who had been spectators are now participants, since golf offers them a new outlet and a new means of expressing their identity and demonstrating their latent talents.
The need for public golf courses has long been recognized by forward-thinking officials of the City of Long Beach, and by the Department of Parks, Recreation & Marine. The City has arguably the world's busiest public golf course system, comprised of 5 golf courses, with over 420,000 rounds of golf being played annually.
The Department of Parks, Recreation & Marine, is responsible for overseeing the maintenance and management of all City golf course facilities. All of these facilities are contracted-out to the private sector under long-term management leases with American Golf Corporation and Choura Venue Services. However, all policies, fees, and guidelines for play are subject to the rules and regulations set forth by the Department in the City of Long Beach Golf Operations Manual.
