5001 Dukemajian Dr Long Beach, CA 90804


Golf Course Description

This course plays much longer than its yardage indicates. The first two holes can lull a first-time visitor into a relaxed state of mind because they measure only a few hundred yards in length with no real hazards involved. Then over the span of the next eight holes, golfers must face five par 4’s measuring over 400 yards in length. Hole #6, a 456-yard, par 4, is by far the most difficult hole on the course. It forces the average golfer to play the hole more like a par 5, or least nail a fairway wood on the approach shot if they plan on putting for a birdie. The course’s terrain is also a factor, including tree-lined fairways, elevated greens and many changes in elevation. The somewhat sloped greens vary between medium to large in size, are a little on the firm side, and are well bunkered with average speed. The Long Beach Open is held here every July. Special rates apply to residents of Long Beach. However, there is a twilight rate in the late afternoons for all golfers. Early morning walk-ons can place their names on the starter’s list inside the coffee shop beginning at 5:30 AM.
