Long Beach, CA $19-$58
Recreation Park Golf Course 18
The Charm of a Carnival Atmosphere
Locally known as "Big Rec" to differentiate it from the 9-holer across the street (named, of course, "Little Rec"), this 18-hole par 72 might look like a pushover. But a handful of 400-plus yard par 4s and fast, sloping greens make it a challenge. The moderately hilly terrain makes for an engaging stroll, too. It's got a little bit of everything, just like Long Beach itself.
