Heartwell Park Golf Course
6700 E. Carson Street
Long Beach, CA 90808
Heartwell is an 18-hole par-3 course that was opened in 1958. The Clubhouse was built in 1962, and in 2016 underwent a renovation to bring back the Mid-Century Modern architecture and feel. While it is a great course for beginners, the small, sloping greens also offer a fun and challenging experience for accomplished golfers, and it is recognized as a great place to work on your short game.
With lights to allow play and practice until 10:00 at night, Heartwell has arguably the most utilized driving range and practice greens in the greater Long Beach area.
Heartwell is the home of the Long Beach Junior Golf Association and on any given Friday many of the 400+ members of the LBJGA can be found getting instruction, practicing, playing for fun or competing.
Heartwell was the course where Tiger Woods played his first round of golf and his original scorecard is preserved in the Long Beach Junior Golf Building at the end of the parking lot, along with some other memorabilia from his youth and from the Tiger Woods Foundation Clinic that he conducted in Long Beach in 2004.
