  Catalina Island Golf Course
by Goner

The Catalina Island Golf Course was first built back in 1892 by the Banning brothers as a 3-hole course. The course has the distinction of being the oldest golf course in Southern California (and perhaps the West). By 1929, the course was expanded to a full 18-hole course. Many tournaments were played here, the most famous of which was the Bobby Jones Invitational Tournament held from 1931 to 1955, with a brief break during the war. Every spring top amateur golfers would visit and revisit the Catalina Course.

Golf fees are $27 for nine holes and $40 for 18, cart included, cheap compared to golf on the mainland.

Equipment: It’s a public golf course and it provides a memorable experience for golfers of every skill level.

What it has:

2 sets of tees for 18-hole play
Cleveland Clubs,
Club Car cart rentals
PGA pro on staff
Groups are welcome
