Motorists buzzing along East Broad Street between Interstate 270 and Hamilton Road might get the feeling something's missing.

It is.

The 86,000-square-foot inflatable golf dome at the former Four Seasons Golf Center, 5000 E. Broad St., was deflated Sept. 19 and removed by the two business partners who purchased the dome for $1,750 via online auction in July.

Darrell Miller and John Williamson purchased the dome and hope to repurpose it as a multisports venue in central Ohio, Miller said.

But doing so will require investors, Miller said, and it remains unknown how soon any project will move forward.

Miller, 59, is the owner of the Ohio Bootleggers, a team in the Premier Basketball League.

He also is on the coaching staff at Otterbein College.

He operated USA Sports Academy, on East Fifth Avenue between North Hamilton and James roads, until its closure two years ago.

Miller said, with investors, he plans to use the dome at a future site.

"We want it to be a big event center," said Miller, adding it would not be limited to golf.

A range would be a component, he said, but it also could have basketball courts, weight-training equipment, and possibly soccer and lacrosse.
