LA County’s golf courses are on par for changes. Think Zumba and Frisbee

Hoping to drive a range of visitors toward Los Angeles County’s golf courses, park and recreation officials recommended opening up some of the 18 facilities to include yoga and Zumba classes, concerts and movie nights as well as Frisbee games and camp outs.

The recommendations by the Los Angeles County Department of Parks and Recreation were presented in a report to the Board…

The department compiled the report after Supervisor Janice Hahn last month expressed concern that the county’s golf courses, part of the largest golf system of its kind in the nation, were underutilized. She specifically questioned why the county should spend $7.5 million to upgrade Lakewood Golf Course in Long Beach.
