Westchester Golf Course, which has always come up a little short, will finally return to glory.
In 1993, the course lost three holes to accommodate the building of Westchester Parkway.
On Monday, the Los Angeles Board of Airport Commissioners awarded a 10-year lease to Westchester Golf Partners LLC for the restoration to its original 18 holes, The Associated Press reported:
WGP will invest $2.1 million for the restoration project and will be required to complete the restoration within 180 days after Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA) obtains required approvals from the City of Los Angeles and Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), which entail federal and state environmental reviews and compliance to permit the restoration development project. The additional holes will be developed on 23 acres of vacant land owned by LAWA, immediately east of the southern half of the existing golf course and north of Los Angeles International Airport (LAX).
"This project is great, great, great for Westchester," City Councilman Bill Rosendahl told the Los Angeles Times' blog, L.A. Now.
Rosendahl had lobbied for the change, according to the blog.
