Sales await City Council's go-ahead
Though it might not help improve swing technique per se, golfers in Inver Grove Heights may soon have the option to partake in adult beverages with an alcohol content a bit higher than the 3.2 beer Inver Wood Golf Course has been selling.

"We've never sold any alcohol other than light beer there; never liquor," Tourville said.
