The people of Los Angeles, Long Beach, and Downey are practicing for the PRC Restoration Golf & Give Back Tournament, which is coming to the Lakewood Country Club on Friday, October 2. As your guide to the Golf & Give Back Tournament, we’ll be making sure that you have all of the information you need to take part in this exciting charity golf event.
Keep in mind that the date of the Golf & Give Back event is coming up soon. Read this guide and join in on all of the fun and festivities.
Golf & Give Back Tournament Details
The Golf & Give Back event is hosted by the Red Shoe Society. This group of young philanthropic professionals provides assistance to the Ronald McDonald House, so it makes sense that proceeds from the event will benefit the Long Beach Ronald McDonald House.
The event is scheduled for Friday, October 2 at the Lakewood Country Club. The country club is located at 3101 Carson Street in Lakewood. Interested parties can register either online or at the country club on the day of the event.

About the Lakewood Country Club
The Lakewood Country Club Golf Course was designed in 1933 as a beautiful and challenging 18-hole championship course. With 7,000 yards from the back tees, the Lakewood Country Club Course is one of the longer courses in the area.
In addition to the course, golfers can find chipping greens, a practice bunker, a pro shop, and a grill/lounge for dining.
What to Wear
When picking out a top, a golf shirt is probably best. This short sleeved, collared pullover is slightly longer than your average polo, which helps it to stay tucked in after an afternoon of swinging. Button-down shirts and low-cut collars aren’t suggested golf attire.
For bottoms, a nice pair of khaki pants has become the standard, but most Bermuda-length shorts are also perfectly acceptable. What you should stay away from are jeans, gym shorts, cutoffs, and short shorts.
In terms of footwear, golf shoes are obviously the best choice, but it’s understandable that a one-time player might not want to dish out the money on a brand-new pair of golfing shoes. So a good pair of pair of sneakers should do just fine.
However, if you do plan to wear golfing shoes, keep in mind that some courses don’t allow metal-spiked shoes, so be sure to check with the country club ahead of time.
The last thing that you should make sure to wear while at the Golf & Give Back Tournament is plenty of sunscreen. Many people don’t realize just how long they’ve been out in the sun when playing golf and will get sunburned as a result.
