First established in 1941, The Norwegian Seamen's Church in San Pedro, CA, is the most important meeting place for Scandinavians in Southern California with over 12,000 visitors each year. The Norwegian-based headquarters of the Seamen’s Church only pays wages for the pastor, the host family, and two diaconal employees, while all other expenses, including locally-hired employees, are entirely dependent on local donations and fundraising.
The Norwegian Seamen's Church is a 501(c)3 Non-Profit Organization.
Nansen Field was established in 1949 as a soccer field for visiting seamen. In 1952, Seamen of Norway Inc. (SNI) was established and the deed transferred to this entity on February 29, 1952 and Nansen Field became the property of SNI in an irrevocable charitable trust. SCAN (Scandinavian Center at Nansen Field) was formed in May 1997 and embarked on the ambitious endeavor of establishing a Scandinavian Heritage, Cultural and Sports Center at Nansen Field. SCAN is responsible for preserving, maintaining and financially operating Nansen Field and its facilities and plays a vital role in fulfilling the cultural, athletic, educational and social needs of the Nordic community and others in Southern California.

The Golf Course
On October 11th, 2019, the 26th Annual Nordic Cup Golf Tournament will be held at Lakewood Country Club, 3101 Carson Street, Lakewood, CA 90712.
Designed by William Bell in 1933, Lakewood Golf Course is one of the original gems of Southern California golf. Water comes into play on seven of the holes, mainly from its signature man-made Lake Bouton. One of the longer courses in the area at over 7,000 yards back from the back tees, the course has limited elevation change and tree-lined fairways.
With 18 holes of championship golf and a dynamic, 7,033-yard layout that combines 11 acres of lakes and tree-lined fairways, Lakewood Golf Course has everything you need for a full day of golf. Lakewood Golf Course features challenging par 3's, some that play well over 200 yards. Plus, there's an abundance of new sand bunkers, Poa greens, Bermuda grass on tees and fairways, and a full driving range with 2 practice putting greens with a huge pitching area. Previously voted Los Angeles County Course of the Year, Lakewood Country Club is conveniently accessible from south Los Angeles, and from the 605, 405, and 5 freeways.
