Golf And History Don’t Mix

The Ohio Supreme Court will hear a country club’s appeal of orders that it sell back a lease to the state historical agency to provide public access to ancient burial mounds. The court voted 5-2 to hear the case, with Chief Justice, Maureen O’Connor and Justice, R. Patrick DeWine dissenting. Justice, Patrick Fischer accepted the appeal only on the narrower issue of property appraisals. A date for the hearing has not been determined. The Ohio History Connection has leased the 134-acre property in Newark to Moundbuilders, where golf has been played since 1910.
