Anyone know the history of this field and the odd curved building?

Yes, indeed I do: This used to be a landfill back in the 60's - 70's. It was covered over and turned into a golf range in the late 80's - therefore the curved driving range structure. It was operated for some time by a nationwide golfing franchise, but they declared bankruptcy in 2000 and it has sat vacant for all these years. I was investigating making it into a golf range again, but determined to do it right would be too expensive. And it'd be really expensive to build there b/c you've got the landfill issues to deal with. (apparently Walmart was looking at the site roughly 10 years ago).
