Salem Golf Course

Columbus is growing, no doubt about it, and Farmer John Salem wasn't going to fool himself. Salem, 30 years old, realized that the city is going to invade his land no matter what, sense the lot to the west of his was made into subdivisions 2 years ago. So, he decided to make something of it that would be accepting of suburban folks.

A golf course! full 18 holes, and a driving range! (Thanks to skimbo's DragonGolfClub in the STEX.) He also took money out of his retirement fund to build streets for residents to build houses. With running a real-estate business and a Golf Course, many consider him a genius, and other farmers that have had their land eaten up wonder why they didn't think of that earlier.

"Well, I took a huge risk, and almost lost all of my money putting this together. If it didn't work, then I would be in a serious financial difficulty." Salem told the Republic Newspaper.

Salem's stock is growing at an un-believable rate. His golf course is located off of I-665 and 25th street, which gives the Salem Golf Course a much stronger recognition than if he was out in the boonies. It's funny, because he was one of the most angry of farmers when I-665 cut off a strip of his land on the west. Oh how his way of thinking has changed. He's never swung a golf club in his life, all he's done is milk cows and drive tractors. This new Golf Course has given him an open mind, and he expects his children to compete in the PGA tour when they're his age.

No pressure kiddo's.
