In May of 2012, the Long Beach City Council approved the formation of a Golf Advisory Committee that reports to the Director of the City's Department of Parks, Recreation and Marine. The purpose of this group is afford public input and comment on the City's Golf Operation and act as a sounding board for the Department relative to ideas on how the golf courses are managed.
Every two years, applications are solicited from the various Men's and Women's Clubs as well as from other interested in serving. The Director of Parks then appoints nine people from this pool to a two-year term on the Committee. Committee members can serve for a maximum of 4 terms in succession.
The Committee also has several Sub Committees, including Policies and Procedures, Fees and Charges, Maintenance and Environmental Best Practices and Capital Improvements.
The Committee meets quarterly, usually the second week of February, May, August and November at the Parks, Recreation and Marine Administration Headquarters Building at 2760 Studebaker Road in Long Beach. Agendas for each meeting are posted the week before in the Golf Operations glass display cases at each City golf course.
