It was standing room only at 5th District Councilwoman Lisa Clancy’s first in a series of town halls on the fate of the Tower Tee Golf Course. Nearly 100 people packed into a room at the Affton-White Rodgers Community Center on March 20 to voice their concerns and provide feedback on what should or shouldn’t become of the golf course. Audience members included Rep. Doug Beck and 6th District Councilman Ernie Trakas.

Fifth District Councilwoman Lisa Clancy will hold her second town hall about the potential development of the former Tower Tee site at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, April 17, at the Affton Community Center, 9801 Mackenzie Road.

Tower Tee was an Affton fixture for more than 50 years and had a driving range, batting cages, mini-golf and a par-3 course. The owner of Tower Tee leased the property from Tegna/KSDK Channel 5 until July 2018 when both the owner of Tower Tee and Tegna decided to sell the site.

“Tower Tee was a beloved part of this community and I want to continue working closely with my constituents to create the best future possible for this part of our county,” Clancy said.

The property is currently zoned for commercial development and the St. Louis County Council would have to approve the property being rezoned for residential use. Residents have appeared the council meetings over many months to share their opinions about the future of Tower Tee.

At Clancy’s first town hall meeting on March 20, about 75 people provided feedback.

“This is another opportunity for residents to weigh in and ensure that Affton continues to be an attractive community to live in and raise a family,” said Clancy.
