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.

    Simple and great communication!

    We chose this venue because it was local and has a beautiful outdoor ceremony, cocktail hour area, and spacious reception room! It also has a gorgeous bridal suite (rare to find all in one place). Plus they had a great package deal! Tawnya and Julian responded to every question I had right away and helped me out so much through out the process of my wedding! Tawnya was there the day of and made me feel so calm, comfortable, and excited and helped organize so much for me especially the ceremony! The food was great and their staff for the night was incredible and so kind! Highly recommend this place for your wedding!

This is a great location for an event. The event coordinators are very knowledgeable and helpful. It's nice that the facility has many options for both the ceremony & reception. I have been to many events at this location and it is always well maintained. The food is excellent and I am without exception, always impressed with the friendly staff. What a great, worry free place for an event.

I've had the pleasure to work with Katelyn, and can I just say, she is a class act! When you have a professional that knows their job, and loves what they do, it makes a world of difference for their clients and their vendors. Her professionalism and attention to detail is apparent from start to finish.

Great staff and the recent remodel makes this intimate venue vary adaptable to any type of decor and is centered by a large and lovely fireplace. The cocktail reception courtyard is private and allows for great mingling amongst your guests. Great for a couple who wants a venue with character and a friendly staff along with a central location.
