Your Dollars at Work

Rec_park_18_157_400x200Ten percent of every green fee on the five Long Beach Golf Courses is deposited into a Capital Improvement Fund that is used to upgrade or fix the Long Beach golf courses and the buildings thereon.

In 2010, approximately $700,000 was spent on the following items: Refurbishment of the Clubhouse and restrooms at Big Rec; a new GPS irrigation system at all of the courses but Heartwell, that allows the Superintendent to better monitor the location of broken sprinkler heads, and better control the proper watering of all areas of the courses; a process called sand-channelling on three of the greens at Little Rec designed to improve the drainage and create a better micro-climate for root growth; renovation of the on-course restrooms at El Dorado Park GC; a new scoreboard for the Long Beach Open; Aerators in the lakes at Skylinks and El Dorado to provide better habitats for fish and prevent the growth of algae; an ADA-acceptable awning for access to the outer Clubhouse restrooms at Heartwell; repairs to support beams, the roof and kitchen plumbing at Heartwell; improvements to the Long Beach Golf Museum and Hall of Fame room at Skylknks;.


In 2011, the major proposed Capital projects are the renovation of the 50 year old maintenance building at Skylinks, the renovation of numerous tees boxes at Skylinks and Big Rec, renovation of the clubhouse restrooms at El Dorado and the installation of irrigation lines that will allow fresh water to be used on the greens at El Dorado when salt content from reclaimed water gets high in hot periods.
