Ambassador Training
A new year means a new round of Ambassador trainings at the Manhattan Beach Country Club! Designed specifically for 10-year-old members, our three-part training will cover MCC rules and regulations, dining etiquette, and a swim test.

Since you need to be 14 years old to walk freely around the Club’s grounds and go into certain spaces, this three-part training will allow 10-year-olds to check themselves in and safely move around the Club with no hassle.

While certain areas of the Club are always off-limits for youth, the Ambassador Training empowers youth to take responsibility and be ambassadors for our wonderful country club, while also learning important dining etiquette and swim safety. All ambassadors that pass their test will be invited to partake in our Ambassador Party in the Spring!

Part 1 – Ground Rules & Regulations | January 18 | 5:00 pm-7:00 pm

Part 2 – Dining Etiquette | February 15 | 5:00 pm-7:00 pm

Part 3 – Swim Test and Party | March 15 | 5:00 pm-7:00 pm

Only a handful of training are scheduled during the year, so take advantage of our January Part 1 training before the summer months begin.

If you are interested in RSVPing, please email the Family Programming Director, Taylor at
