Welcome to the Long Beach Golf Festival
Welcome to the Long Beach Golf Festival (LBGF). The LBGF is an annual series of golf tournaments presented by the City of Long Beach and American Golf Corporation. They include tournaments for amateurs, professionals, men, women, and juniors. There are both stroke- and match-play events.
The culmination of the LBGF is the $175,000 Long Beach Open. This four-day tournament annually includes many of the top young professionals among its 315-player field. Several past participants in the LBO or its predecessor, the Queen Mary Open, have gone on to success on the PGA Tour, including Fred Couples, Mark O’Meara, Craig Stadler, Peter Jacobsen, Scott McCarron, Dennis Paulson, Xander Schauffele, and Long Beach native Paul Goydos.
In 2017 nearly 1,500 golfers took part in one or more Festival events, coming from all over the United States and from as far away as Australia. There were over 3,200 rounds of tournament golf contested during the Festival and dozens of volunteers donated countless hours to help staff the tournaments.
Money raised during the Festival’s Long Beach Open Charity Pro-Am went to Partners of Parks, the Assistance League of Long Beach, and to help fund the golf programs at Long Beach State, Wilson High School and Los Alamitos High School.
