Tower Tee, the popular golf attraction in south St. Louis County may soon be replaced by a new development of homes.

Plans for the subdivision, called The Arbors at Tower Tee, were submitted to St. Louis County by McBride and Sons of Chesterfield.

 In a statement, McBride and Sons says the plans are for 99 single-family homes and 59 attached row houses on the 27-acre site.

"The people I've to are very upset," said Steve Tobey who was practicing on Tower Tee's driving range.

"It's been an icon in St. Louis for a long, long, long time," said Thurman Brooks.

The owner of Tower Tee, who leases the land, Steve Lotz says the owner of the property is looking for a buyer and he's also made an offer for the property. 

"At this point, we're in a wait and see mode, " Lotz says.

The plans for McBride's request to rezone for the development will go before the county Planning Commission on November 13.
