Ohio Trash Authority Gives up on Landfill Golf CourseOhio Trash Authority Gives up on Landfill Golf Course
March 16, 2015
The Phoenix Golf Links will not rise again.
The agency that runs the Franklin County landfill has decided to permanently shutter the golf course in Jackson Township south of Columbus.
The course became the property of the Solid Waste Authority of Central Ohio a little more than a year ago in a settlement with its former owners. Built atop a closed county landfill that SWACO inherited in 1989, the course was designed to protect the earthen cap over the landfill while creating a public amenity and raising money for the agency.
