LONG BEACH/LA COUNTY Golf Courses
« on: April 08, 2009, 11:21:20 PM »
I grew up playing Junior Golf and High School Golf in the Lakewood/Long Beach in Los Angeles County. I am going to do a short rundown of some courses for people maybe wanting to play the local tracks rather than a High End or Resort course.

Recreation Park Golf Course- Hilly, nice classic Riviera type feel, some really nice and challenging Par 3's. There is also and Excecutive 9 Hole across the street locals refer to as Little Rec. This is a busy track and calling ahead in advance is a must. Range is a bit small but does the job.

Skylinks Golf Course- Right across the street from Long Beach Airport, a flat course that had a recent renovation with some Hazards added, some nice Par 5's and lots of Birdie chances, Great finishing hole, big range.

El Dorado park Golf Course- Located in and around the large El Dorado Park, very busy, also had some recent rennovations, Some tough Par 3's including #9 and a lot of dog legs, this is a very classic Park Golf course, Range, Coffee shop.

Lakewood Country Club- (Yes public) held the Long Beach and Queen Mary Open for many years, a lot of PGA Players played tournaments here including Mark O'Meara, Sam Snead, Mac O' Grady, Byron Nelson and others. This is a really nice Championship feel type Golf Course, some memorable holes including #2, 6, 12, 15 and 18. The 5th Hole is a long Par 3 from the tips and is very tough as well as the long Par 4 6th. Smal Range, Coffee shop, Nice practice green and bunker.

These are all nice courses that are reasonable and offer some nice golf and some great holes.

Kevin,
I'm from Lakewood too, where's the love for Hartwell Golf Course?  Tiger played Hartwell a lot.

Hey Byron, I was going to add Heartwell and Ironwood but never did. I also played Heartwell as a kid so I will ASAP.
