About Recreation Park 18 Golf Course

Recreation Park 18 Golf Course is a wedding ceremony and reception venue located in Long Beach, California. This facility radiates sophistication and Spanish-colonial charm, being a historic landmark that was constructed in 1926. Couples seeking a wedding venue that has the groomed style of a golf course and the additional personality of historic value will find their hearts carried away along the freeways of this breathtaking venue.

Facilities and Capacity
Is your rosy-lensed heart fixated on an outdoor ceremony? Say your vows in the Rose Garden, which features a 75-foot long garden pathway for a breathtaking entrance, romantic and classic rose bushes, and a gazebo set in the foreground among deep green, groomed hedges.

After your ceremony, enjoy a refreshing cocktail hour on an outdoor patio, which likewise offers stunning views of the surrounding greenery and course, classically designed by William F. Bell.

The ballroom, ideal for your reception, accommodates up to 180 guests. High cathedral ceilings, dark wood cross beams, and exquisite chandeliers are some of the period staples that contribute beautifully to the 1920’s Spanish colonial charm of this venue. Attached to the patio through a set of French doors, couples and their guests can move from the intimate indoors to the expansive outdoors, transitioning from the handsome dark wood interior to the vast, open fairways. This room is white-walled to accommodate a variety of color schemes and personalized themes. It also comes with a spacious dance floor.

Your reception can also take place in the clubhouse itself, which comes complete with a banquet room, a get-ready room, and its own restaurant. The red pan tiled roof and pillared portico of the clubhouse harken back to 1926 and contribute even more richly to the historic value of this enchanting and nostalgic facility.

This venue also offers a luxurious loft as a privatized get-ready room. This loft features an eight-person vanity for the entire wedding party, a flat-screen television, and a separate luxury space available.

Excellent venue and staff

Excellent place to have a wedding. The event coordinator, Juliann, is amazing to work with- she met with us multiple times before the event and was able to accommodate a few special requests that we ... Read more had. The space itself is gorgeous- outdoor ceremony area at a gazebo with beautiful flowers, outdoor patio area with lights and green wall to create some privacy, and the reception room has a fireplace, exposed wooden beams, chandeliers, and tapestry- very minimal additional decoration needed for a simple wedding. The food on site was also top notch- our guests kept commenting on how good the food was and we definitely felt that way as well! The entire experience from start to finish was incredible and Rec Park 18 helped make it so special!
