PHOENIX — A Tempe golf course may be seeing some changes soon.
Scottsdale organic farmer Ken Singh wants to change at least part of the Rio Salado Golf Course, which is currently closed, into a farm.
“It’s going to be more of an urban farm,” Singh said. “Because of certain limitations with water rights and things, there’s only so much we can do here.”
Singh said that several gardens are big part of what he sees for the course’s future.
“We’re going to put in gardens, and we’re going to create areas for community gardens once we know what we’re going to do with the county and city,” he said.
The Tempe City Council has already approved the concept of turning the golf course into a farm. The 63-acre, 9-hole golf course is located north of the Loop 202 freeway.
Singh said that he wants it to become an oasis for the entire community. He said that he’s not opposed to keeping the golf course, as long as it fits into the plans for the farm.
