Request for Support of Rancho Sierra Golf Course with AV Watermaster
Rancho Sierra Golf Course is a small public nine hole golf course and driving range located in Lancaster, CA in the Antelope Valley. Rancho Sierra is the only golf course in Lancaster, and only one of two nine hole courses in all of the Antelope Valley. Opened in 1963, it has served the local communities for sixty years. We primarily serve golfers who are seniors, juniors, ladies, as well as beginners. We also have a robust teaching program that has benefited golfers of all ages and abilities in the area. We support local high school golf programs including Eastside, Antelope Valley, Pete Knight, and Lancaster Baptist among others by hosting practices and matches for both boys and girls teams.
The owner of this course, Rancho Sierra Properties, LLC, has been embroiled in the Antelope Valley Groundwater Adjudication case. Rancho Sierra Golf Course cannot continue operations under currently proposed payments to the Antelope Valley Watermaster. We ask that the Antelope Valley Watermaster Board, which administers adjudicated water rights, continue to negotiate with Rancho Sierra Properties such that Rancho Sierra Golf Course can continue to operate. Given our customer base, we cannot pass large water costs on to
our golfer community, especially since many are on fixed incomes.
If you would like to see Rancho Sierra Golf Course continue to operate, please demonstrate your support by signing this petition, which will be presented to the Antelope Valley Watermaster Board the week of January 22nd, 2023.
P.S. We are not asking for any donations, just for petition signatures! Any donations will go to the petition hosting site, ipetitions.com. Thanks!
