New Golf Advisory Committee Forming

CommMtg-Rec18-B 400x200The City of Long Beach Golf Operation is one of the busiest and most respected in the nation. For years there has been a group of varying composition that offered recommendations to the City on the best practices for the golf course system.

The City Council has now endorsed the recommendation of the Long Beach Municipal Golf Commission to create a new citizen advisory committee for golf.


This group will be comprised of up to nine people from varying backgrounds who have a passion for golf and hopefully wide and varied life skills and viewpoints that can afford advice to the Department of Parks, Recreation and Marine on how to best operate this asset of the City's residents.

The Purpose of the Golf Advisory Committee is to provide a mechanism for ongoing citizen input to the Director of the Department of Parks, Recreation and Marine, who is the City Manager's designee for the operation of the City's municipal golf course system

The general duties of the Committee will be to:

  1. Suggest and/or review proposed modifications to the City's Golf Operations Manual, and various Policies and Procedures for the City's Golf Operation.
  2. Suggest and/or review proposed changes to the City Golf Course Fees.
  3. Recommend annual expenditures from the City Golf CIP Fund.
  4. Apprise the Department of trends and issues in the golf business.
  5. Perform such other tasks as requested by the Director in furtherance of the Purpose of the Committee.

It is expected that members of the Committee will commit to offering their best judgment and recommendations on the proper management of the City's Golf Operation as an asset of all residents of the City of Long Beach.

It is expected that the Committee will meet quarterly, but will also have an active Sub Committee structure with responsibilities for:

Fees and Charges
Infrastructure and Capital Improvements
Maintenance and Environmental Best Practices
Policies and Procedures

If you are interested in being considered for an appointment to this Committee, please dowload and fill out the application below and return it by June 18, 2012.
