The Park at New Melle Lakes is located at 400 Foristell Road in New Melle and opened in Sept. 2018. This new park features a premier 18-hole “champion” disc golf course that was built on the site of a former golf course. Conveniently located off Highway Z, the course boasts challenges for beginners and experts alike and features long and short tee pads situated on fairways and wooded areas in the park. Additional disc golf courses are located at Quail Ridge Park in Wentzville, Indian Camp Creek Park in Foristell and at College Meadows Park, located on the campus of St. Charles Community College.
