I just got word from the P&R. They removed a bunch of locust for two reasons. 1. They wanted better access to the pond area so they could make it totally awesome. <- Their words. 2. They want to replant good trees in their place along with plenty more throughout the course to help with flow and separation. He assures me that they are just trying to make the area better, and I am on their side because there are not many P&Rs out there that are as on board as these guys about Disc Golf.
Sooo... That's what they did.
