Proposed joint Chargers, Raiders stadium could close nearby golf course


SHARE THIS STORY

The NFL's Oakland Raiders and San Diego Chargers want new stadium deals with funding help from their local governments. However, just in case they each don't get their way -- and officials and taxpayers shouldn't cave to the teams' costly demands -- they have joined forces for one hell of a bluff.

The teams will propose a shared stadium on a 172-acre site in Carson, Calif. Each team would play their home games there, with one of the two AFC West teams, likely the Raiders, asking the NFL to move conferences. The estimated price tag is $1.7 billion.

If the teams go through with the proposal, a golf course could become a casualty. The Links at Victoria Golf Course sits on the proposed development space, which once was a landfill. Los Angeles County owns Victoria Park as part of the parcel, which is located near the interchange of the 405 and 110 freeways.

The Links at Victoria Park Golf Course, considered a middling track, was built in 1966 and completely renovated in 2001.
