Westchester '15-hole' golf course to have three holes restored

June 22, 2009 |  5:52 pm

After decades of controversy, the Board of Airport Commissioners of Los Angeles has agreed to restore three holes at the Westchester Golf Course, returning it to the standard 18-hole configuration. Three holes were lopped off to build Westchester Parkway nearly 20 years ago.

"This project is great, great, great for Westchester," said City Councilman Bill Rosendahl, who had lobbied for the change.

According to the 10-year lease, which Westchester Golf Partners may extend by 20 years, the project must be completed within 180 days of receiving final environmental clearance and state and federal approvals. Los Angeles World Airports, which owns and operates nearby LAX, has completed the environmental study and submitted it to the Federal Aviation Administration for final determination.
