Course Description

Penmar Municipal Golf Course was designed by David Kent and opened in 1962. It is a beautifully landscaped executive 9-hole course located in Venice, CA. This short regulation course offers a variety of challenges and is an excellent opportunity to brush up on your short game. Penmar, because of it’s proximity to Venice Beach provides a cool golfing experience during the hot summer months. Nearby facilities include the Penmar Recreation Center and the Penmar Child Care Center (in Penmar Playground) located across the street.
