Fifth District Supervisor Kathryn Barger announced over the weekend that after some discussion about a possible transfer to the city of Pasadena, the County of Los Angeles will retain ownership of the Eaton Canyon Golf Course, and will work to ensure that the facility is maintained at the highest possible standard.
The news comes on the heels of publicity in this newspaper and other local media where scores of residents came together as a newfound grassroots organization determined to save the golf course.
“Our new reputable operator at the course has enabled us to not only provide a valuable recreational resource for the community but also attract a new clientele for the future,” said Supervisor Barger.
Course management, maintenance and the overall quality of the facility has improved dramatically under CourseCo., who will continue as the operator through a contract with the Los Angeles County Department of Parks and Recreation.
“I am very encouraged by the input I have received by all of the stakeholders and I support giving our golf course an opportunity to succeed and flourish,” Barger added. “I want to invite the community to utilize this course as much as possible. Your patronage as regular golfers and diners at the restaurant helps keep the facility vital and helps us attract a new generation of golfers.”
