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 $170,000 Long Beach Open. This four-day tournament annually includes many of the top young professionals among its 312-player field. Several past winners have gone on to success on the PGA Tour, including Paul Goydos, Scott McCarren, Dennis Paulson, and Bob Burns.
Come and join us by either participating, or volunteering, for any of our events. All the information needed is included here in our website, or contact us with any questions.
