The Pico Rivera Golf Club will be impacted by the project due to construction activities and necessary dam repairs. The golf course will first experience partial closures, followed by a full closure. While the City has been attempting to clarify the details of the forthcoming disruptions with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), currently the following known impacts include:
- Beginning April 15, 2021: The golf course will experience partial and intermittent closures to holes 5-8 and the driving range to accommodate land surveys, testing and other activities conducted by the USACE and their contractors. All activities will be communicated in advance to allow timely notification to the golf course vendor and patrons.
- Beginning September 7, 2021: In preparation for utility relocation work beginning in October 2021, holes 5-8, as well as the driving range, will be fenced and closed indefinitely. The banquet hall and restaurant will remain open to the public. Other areas of the golf course may remain open but that is to be determined.
- Beginning January 15, 2022: The USACE will require intermittent access to the remainder of the golf course for testing, measuring and other activities, which may require occasional partial closures of the golf course. All activities will be communicated in advance to allow timely notification to the golf course vendor and patrons.
- October 2022: The entire golf course will close to accommodate construction activities required for USACE to repair the dam; additionally, the footprint of the dam will be expanded by approximately 200 feet into the golf course.
There is a possibility that the Club House and parking lot may be available for use during construction; however, this has not been confirmed and the use has not yet been determined.
Since the Pico Rivera Golf Club, Club House and parking lot sits on federally-owned land, it is unknown whether the City would be permitted to lease the remaining land again for the community’s recreational use once the project is complete; however, the City is actively coordinating with the USACE to pursue this option.
