There has never been a shortage of golfers in Los Angeles, evidenced by the fact that Rancho Park averages well over 100,000 rounds played a year, more than any other course in the country. Nor is the region lacking for top-tier courses, as Riviera Country Club and L.A. Country Club (North course) are widely considered two of the finest courses anywhere.

National Transportation Safety Board investigators combed through the wreckage of two small planes Tuesday, looking for the cause of a midair collision that killed four people. Investigators spent part of the day looking for missing pieces of the planes, which collided Monday morning about six miles north of Van Nuys Airport in an area just south of the Newhall Pass, a heavily traveled air corridor.

The two planes that collided in midair over a golf course here last week had both contacted the Van Nuys Airport control tower and had been assigned electronic codes so they could be tracked on radar, investigators said Monday. The finding was included in a preliminary report issued by the National Transportation Safety Board and is the first official account of the Feb. 7 collision that killed four people. It details the circumstances of the accident but does not assign any blame.

Two light planes collided above a Sylmar golf course Monday, killing all four people aboard and sending golfers running for safety as the wreckage landed on both sides of the Golden State Freeway. One of the two-seat, propeller planes was descending to land at Van Nuys Airport and the other was patrolling an oil pipeline that runs from Bakersfield to refineries in Wilmington and El Segundo, federal aviation officials said.

The San Fernando Valley golf business is looking a lot like Payne Stewart when he won the U.S. Open on June 20 in Pinehurst, N.C. Stewart got stuck in the rough on the last hole of the championship, clinging perilously to a one-stroke lead, but he recovered to win the Open with a dramatic putt to save par. The Valley golf business recovery has been more gradual and less dramatic, but it mirrors the same up-and-down nature of the game.
