Quail Ridge Park is located at 560 Interstate Drive in Wentzville. It was the first of three-disc golf courses to be built in St. Charles County’s regional parks system. Conveniently located near the I-64/I-70 interchange, the course boasts challenges for beginners and experts alike and features long and short tee pads situated along rolling terrain and in wooded areas of park. Additional disc golf courses are located at Indian Camp Creek Park near Wentzville; and at College Meadows Park, located on the campus of St. Charles Community College in Cottleville. A new ‘champion’ premier course is being developed at The Park at New Melle Lakes near New Melle and is scheduled to open to the public next month.
