ST. LOUIS (AP) - The University of Missouri-St. Louis now owns a golf course.

The university announced Tuesday that it has completed the $1.4 million purchase of Normandie Golf Course, which is near the university’s south campus. Nearby residents have worried that the course would be sold for development.

But the university says it will maintain the land as a public golf course for at least the next 10 years. The school signed a 10-year agreement with Walters Golf Management to operate and market the course.

The university used private funds financed through the Chancellor’s Council.
