2015 Capital Project Recap

Ten percent of every green fee on each of the City of Long Beach golf courses goes into a Capital Improvement Project (CIP) Fund to allow continual reinvestment into our municipal golf courses, which are a true asset of the City. In 2015, just a tad over $1,000,000 was deposited into the CIP Fund, with $438,000 of that being used for the annual payments on the Bond that was created to fund the rebuilding of Skylinks GC in 2004. Attached are some pictures from some of the projects completed in 2015. In addition to these projects, approximately $420,000 has been earmarked from 2014 and 2015 for the renovation of the restrooms, restaurant and pro shop at Heartwell, a project which began in December.

Items currently planned for 2016 include:

El Dorado

  • A first phase of a project to renovate the bunkers built in approximately 2000, before the golf ball and clubs “exploded”.
  • Rebuilding up to three forward tee boxes and building mounds to cover exposed roots around the 12th and 14th greens.
  • Drainage improvements to the “Big Tent” to reduce slippery conditions when it rains
  • Beautification of the wedding area and replacing the awning around the restaurant
  • Additional tree planting to coincide with the first phase of the bunker project

Rec Park 18

  • Rebuilding of the 12 and 16th tee boxes, and possibly enlargement of the 16th green

Rec Park 9-hole

  • Installation of French drains in front of the 4th and 6th greens
  • Repairs to cracking cart paths
  • Repairs to a flooding situation by the coffee shop maintenance door


  • Rebuilding some of the most problematic and unfair bunkers on holes #12, #13 and #17
  • New aerators in two of the lakes to prevent algae build-up


  • Completion of the Clubhouse, restaurant, restroom and pro shop project
  • Kitchen upgrades
  • Upgrades to certain wiring for on-course lights
