By now you’ve likely heard about the proposed Dallas-SMU-AT&T-funded 400-acre golf course, situated on an old landfill of Loop 12. The city funding for the project will head to Council Dec. 12. Until then, we’ll all be left to speculate whether people will use it, whether it’s the best use of city funds, and whether or not I should leave the PuttPutt course and start running with the big dogs.
To Twitter we go for the instant reaction, starting with Observer editor Joe Tone:
@sportsdaydfw I would rather see a 2nd bridge that goes nowhere then a south Dallas golf course

I am not ok with the city of Dallas spending 12.5 million dollars on a golf course while we are closing schools and firing teachers!
