Deal Reached To Buy South Coast Golf Course, And Return It To Coastal Wetlands

Posted on Tuesday, April 2, 2013 7:51am


It was once an important part of South Coast habitat. But, since the 1960’s it’s been a golf course.

KCLU’s Lance Orozco reports escrow has closed on a seven million dollar deal to buy, and restore the property to its natural state.
