OPPORTUNITY TO KEEP GOLF AT VICTORIA GC

Monday, July 26, 2021

SCGA members who live in proximity to Los Angeles County’s Victoria Golf Course in Carson will be receiving information from SCGA later this morning (Friday) about how to participate in an online survey as well as two (2) public meetings in August about what to do in the wake of the demise of the Kimmelman half of what was supposed to be the redevelopment of this long troubled 18-hole regulation golf course.


Roughly 93 acres of Los Angeles County parkland is now unspoken for and needs to be developed into something other than abandoned open space.

Consequently, Los Angeles County Parks & Recreation is reaching out to South Bay/Harbor residents in August to get their input about what to do with these abandoned 93 acres. First reach out is an online survey, which can be accessed by clicking the following link:

The next two reach-outs are public meetings, the first a virtual one on August 5, the second an in-person meeting on August 9.

Workshop # 1

Thursday, August 5, 2021 @ 6:00 PM
Virtual/Online Please RSVP by sending an email to lquach@parks.lacounty.gov.

Workshop # 2

Monday, August 9, 2021 @ 6:00 PM
Victoria Community Regional Park (Indoor Meeting Room – across street from golf course)
419 Martin Luther King Jr. St
Carson, CA 90746
(Face covering and physical distancing required)

If golfers show up at August’s two scheduled meetings and participate in the poll Parks & Recreation has just put online, it is highly likely that much of this acreage can be developed for golf purposes. A 9-hole regulation golf course is very much in play. But ONLY if golfers, golf clubs, and golf programs show up in August!

FOCUS ON THE STATE

All politics are local. As is the case with all clever aphorisms, that one too has its limits. Some politics are state. More germane to this update, some public policies that affect the golf industry are decided at the state level. And it is to a few of these that we address your attention today.
