A nine-hole golf course and practice facility will be the first project to be developed at the former Bedford landfill in Gahanna.
Tartan Golf Academy of Central Park will include a par-3 course, a driving range and a short “pitch and putt” course on 65 acres at the former landfill, which the city recently had capped. A clubhouse also is planned for the year-round facility on the city’s west side.
The city has worked for more than a decade to clean up the 190-acre Bedford site, where two landfills had operated. One was closed in 1978 and the other in 1995. Yet because of the former owner’s financial problems, the property languished until recent years.
