The Venice, Calif., golf course that actor Harrison Ford crashed a World War II-era plane onto is once again open for business, according to reports.

Ford was flying the small plane on March 5 when he began to experience engine trouble shortly after takeoff. He radioed in to the Santa Monica Municipal Airport to request an immediate return, but came up short of the runway, crashing onto Penmar Golf Course’s 8th hole.

Ford survived with non life-threatening injuries.

Course officials said they reopened immediately following the removal of the wreckage by the National Transportation Safety Board.

Until the course can be properly patched, golfers are to treat the crash site as a hazard, and anyone whose play was affected by the crash the day of is eligible for a refund.
