Tree Links Golf Course could become a center for vocational education and conferences if owners Craig and Sandra Weaver can fulfill their dreams.
To reach their goal, they are hoping to access city water and sewer services that are more than a mile away.
They will need the city's help so Tuesday the Weavers announced their plans to the Bellefontaine City Council to begin utility extension discussions.
They will work with Utilities Committee Chairman Dave Haw, City Engineer Tim Notestine and Mayor Adam Brannon's administration.
The couple hopes to replace the existing clubhouse and proshop with a 7,700-square-foot facility that could host banquets of 400 or more people and a restaurant for up to 65 customers.
Mr. and Mrs. Weaver envision providing culinary and turf management learning opportunities for Ohio Hi-Point Career Center students, more golf instruction, corporate training and conferences and seminars for parents to help them plan for their children’s college education.
