Found out today, that the group who operates Los Amigos and Santa Anita, have won the rights to operate Alondra. But, the current management group has gone to court to fight the awarding by the County of LA operating rights to the new group.

Having played Alondra in the past, I would be in favor of the new group taking over.

There's absolutely nothing that could be done to make Alondra a decent golf course ... a few dozen bulldozers would be a start.

Agreed that Alondra will never be a top notch track but it certainly could be better. They have a nice range, good practice greens and a great solid short game area.

If they thached the course regularly, improved the drainage and maybe added some contours to the fairways. It would be a respectable muni and a good place to practice.

I compare Alondra to another South Bay non-playable course, Victoria. Both were laid out on soil which just doesn't work well for growing even Kikuyu grass: Alondra is mostly adobe and Victoria was built over a landfill. Unless they can come in and lay a few tons of topsoil and redesign aka. Mile Sq/Players, it has no chance. That's why all the green compounds are elevated 2-3 feet ... the Poa would never grow on the existing surface.

Of course, I'm neither a Horticulturist and a Landscape Architect so this is just a layman's opinion.
