Golf course holes to be restored

June 24, 2009 12:00:00 AM PDT
Golfers at a popular course near Los Angeles International Airport have reason to be happy.They should literally be getting back some missing holes.

Westchester Golf Course was built in 1965 with 18 holes.

But in 1993, expansion of a nearby roadway gobbled up land that included three of the course's holes.

Since then, golfers have been reduced to playing 15 holes, even replaying holes to complete an 18-hole game.

But on Monday, the Los Angeles Board of Airport Commissioners approved a new lease with Westchester Golf Partners, which will restore the holes using vacant airport-owned land.

The plan still has to be approved by federal officials and the Los Angeles City Council.

City News Service and the Associated Press contributed to this report.
