Adam, don't feel too secure. They CAN take out the trees, and despite the City of Gresham and the local neighborhood association's letters and testimony to the County to NOT sell, it is still very much an issue they are considering. They are considering 1) selling the land behind the church (where the holes lie) and/or 2) the land to the south of the church that is the baseball diamond and soccer field.
Either way, in my eyes its a loss for the neighborhood. And, since I of course love disc golfers at Park Place, I am certainly going to keep an eye on this one!
If I do hear that we will lose the course, I am hoping we can get the disc golf community to stand up and be heard publicly!
