NORWALK - The new and improved Don Knabe Golf Center and Junior Academy is nearly complete, with officials eyeing a potential soft-opening later this month.
An official with LA County said that a June 28th soft-opening is currently being targeted for the course, with a potential mid-to-late July grand opening.
Once completed, the center will offer a 9-hole par 3 golf course, a double deck driving range, a practice pitching green with a bunker, two practice putting greens, a club house, and a community room named after former Norwalk-La Mirada Unified School District Superintendent Ginger Shattuck.
State-of-the-art lighting is also being installed, allowing golfers to use the facilities during the evening hours.
Cost of the renovation comes to the tune of $13 million, funded by a Prop A bond act.
The center was formerly known as the Norwalk Golf Center. It was renamed by the City of Norwalk in honor of former LA County Supervisor Don Knabe.
