Disc golfers rejoice!

You'll soon have a new place in Alexandria to test your skills.

At its meeting Monday night, the Alexandria City Council approved a 10-year agreement with the Alexandria Area YMCA to use a 30-acre piece of its land on the northwest corner of the property for a disc golf course.


Last fall, the city removed the disc golf course at Fillmore-Dean Melton Park after repeated complaints from nearby landowners about players trespassing on their property.
