Golf course may regain missing holes

How do you lose a hole? Ask the Westchester Golf Course, which was deprived of three of them - and now might get them back.

The club near Los Angeles International Airport had 18 holes when it was built in 1965.

But it lost three of them in 1993 when a major road was expanded.

Golfers have been reduced to playing 15 holes, reusing some to complete a game.

Efforts to restore the holes failed over the years, but on Monday the Los Angeles Board of Airport Commissioners approved a 10-year lease with Westchester Golf Partners to restore the holes using vacant airport-owned land.

Golf Partners will invest about $2 million.

The plan to use the airport property still needs approval by the Los Angeles City Council and federal officials.
