Sustainable Redevelopment of Sanitary Landfills as Future Golf Courses
Redevelopment of sanitary landfills plays a major role in sustainable development, providing economical, social and environmental benefits. A combination of rising land values, a growing urban population, their needs for recreation activities and mitigation of ecological impacts have encouraged the conversion of completed sanitary landfills into functional golf courses. This study examines the reclamation problems of completed landfill to golf course developments and the possibility of designing a sanitary landfill based on its final use as a golf course. For this aim, a sustainable planning approach for landfill-to-golf course adaptive use projects are discussed, which combines sanitary landfill and golf course design processes and modifies them in a sustainable way.
