Hall of Fame - General Info

In 1996, the City of Long Beach, through its Department of Parks, Recreation and Marine created the Long Beach Golf Hall of Fame.  The Hall was created to recognize members of the Long Beach community who “left their mark” on golf in the City of Long Beach. Inductees can be players, coaches, administrators, volunteers, or individuals who offered financial support to the game.  The inductees do not have to be residents of Long Beach, but must have some tie to the City.
