Blog Update

I have had a lot of people reach out to me over the last few weeks asking me to review new courses or provide updates to existing. To keep everyone in the loop, I moved away from California almost 3 years ago and due to being busy with work/ kids, have not really picked up a golf club since. 

I keep this site up as a reference for people to use. If you would like to provide content or go and review a course yourself I would be more than happy to post your content to the site. Note, if it is commerical related with links etc, usual advertizing rates will apply. This is to help support the costs associated with web hosting and keeping this site alive.

Recreation Park 9 Golf Course – Executive (Long Beach)

Hole by Hole

Recreation Park is located in Long Beach. There are two golf courses there; a regulation 18 hole (Rec Park 18) and a 9 hole executive (Rec Park 9 – also known as ‘Lil Rec). This review is of the 9 hole executive golf course. The course is located off 7th St. If you are heading west you will first see Rec Park 18 on the right and then Rec Park 9 will be about 200 yards further down the road on the left. Note, that it is a different location, different parking lot, different starter etc. There is a small pro shop, putting green and chipping area, but no driving range at this particular location.

Navy Golf Course “Crusier” – Executive (Seal Beach)


5600 Orangewood Ave
Cypress, CA 90630
(714) 889-1576

9 holes (par 31)
Yardage: 2,020 yards
Hours: sunrise to sunset, 7 days a week
Green fees: $21 Monday to Thursday, $27 Friday to Sunday (military personnel play at heavily discounted rates)

There are two golf courses here. Aptly named Destroyer and Cruiser. The destroyer is a regulation 18 hole (par 72) golf course. The cruiser is a shorter 9 hole executive course. This review is on the “cruiser” course. Although these courses are at the Navy base, public can play. Military personnel get heavily discounted rates. The rates above are for the general public. It is my understanding that the rate is for 18 holes (playing the 9 holes twice) and includes an electric cart. If you walk or just play 9, it is the same rate. But you may want to verify. They have a very nice clubhouse here and the staff were friendly and helpful.
