Golfers can celebrate Tuesday's special election with a cold one at Eagle Creek Golf Course after voters approved selling alcohol at the course.

Residents of the La Grange precinct surrounding the golf course voted overwhelmingly to permit serving alcoholic beverages by the drink.

A registered 1,561 voters live in the precinct, however, only 56 cast a ballot Tuesday.

Of those, 51 voted to approve alcohol sales and 5 voted against.

City officials hope the alcohol sales will increase revenue at the city-owned golf course.

The change could also help decrease the amount of alcohol brought illegally into Eagle Creek.
