It can cost $150,000 to get married at Trump National Golf Club in Rancho Palos Verdes, a price tag befitting its namesake. But at $585 for city residents and $915 for nonresidents, couples can get a similarly spectacular ocean view while saying their vows at a small city park next to the golf course. Now Trump, which manages Founders Park rentals for the city, either wants out of the discount wedding business or to raise the price for a three-hour ceremony in the city park to $2,670 for residents and $3,000 for nonresidents.

Trump National Golf Club has its oft-delayed opening today, when, for the first time, the general public will be allowed to play all 18 holes at the Rancho Palos Verdes course. Owner Donald Trump originally planned to have the course open to the public in the middle of last year, but construction and permitting delays pushed it back several times. Today's opening was made possible when the city of Rancho Palos Verdes on Wednesday night issued a temporary, 90-day operating permit for public use.

James Hatano turns off one of the Palos Verdes Peninsula's oceanfront drives and onto a hidden dirt road, just as he has for more than 50 years. He guides his Buick LaCrosse up a gentle hill to the fields where he raises cacti and flowers. While he works, Hatano can look out at the Pacific and see whales and dolphins. As he chops off a beavertail cactus paddle, he gazes across Palos Verdes Drive West to where construction crews are putting the finishing touches on the 582-room Terranea resort with its nine-hole golf course, 25,000-square-foot spa and three pools.

Is billionaire developer Donald Trump using the freeway to fill his fairways? That's what it looked like Thursday in Brentwood to motorists on Sunset Boulevard near the 405 Freeway. An official-looking sign at Sunset's southbound freeway onramp pointed the way to the Trump National Golf Club with a giant arrow.

On a sunny day at the edge of the Palos Verdes peninsula, some of the world's top female golfers arrived at a consensus that would make Donald Trump proud. When it comes to scenery, they said before and after pro-am rounds Wednesday, no other stop on the LPGA tour rivals Trump National Golf Club. "The views are better than you're going to get anywhere," said Janice Moodie, a seven-year veteran from Orlando, Fla. "I think some of them even beat Pebble Beach."

Donald Trump didn't need to say, "I told you so." He let Trump National Golf Club say it for him. The course, which famously fell victim to a landslide in 1999 and less than three months ago appeared far from ready for any kind of significant event, sits above the Pacific Ocean in Rancho Palos Verdes, completed and ready to accommodate the LPGA Tour's Office Depot Championship beginning Friday.

Waiting to play was already a tradition at what is now known as Trump National Golf Club, which is finally playing host to its first professional tournament six years after a landslide sent part of the 18th hole crumbling toward the Pacific Ocean in 1999. Now the wait is on the tees and fairways. But after six-hour rounds for some LPGA players in the first round of the Office Depot Championship on Friday in Rancho Palos Verdes, there weren't as many complaints as one might think.

A pilot sustained minor injuries Friday when a small plane crashed on a Rancho Palos Verdes beach, officials said. Los Angeles County firefighters were called to the Trump National Golf Club in the Portuguese Bend area shortly before 11:45 a.m. after reports of a plane upside-down on the beach, department officials said. The pilot was the sole person on board. Los Angeles County Sheriff's Capt. Mike Parker tweeted the pilot was "alert & talking. " Television footage showed waves hitting the aircraft as emergency workers examined the scene.

He controls the chips. But they hold the trump card. That's the gist of the high-stakes card game being played in Rancho Palos Verdes as billionaire developer Donald Trump struggles to rename a street that leads to his new $250-million oceanfront golf course, Trump National Golf Club Los Angeles. Trump wants city officials to change Ocean Trails Drive to Trump National Drive.

Clipper rookie forward Yaroslav Korolev has much to learn, but his education probably won't occur in Austin, Texas. Coach Mike Dunleavy said Thursday it was unlikely the 18-year-old Russian would be sent to the team's development league affiliate in Austin. Moreover, the Clippers might not use the development league to start the season.
