I think someone inferred these baseball fields are "out of play".
EDIT: I am leaving this post up because I think it is often overlooked. Just because the use of the property is X one year, it might change so try and think about how things might change long term. Although this is another cirumstance where I should have read all posts before posting. I now see they plan to take down the fences and a city or county wouldnt do that unless the plans were to completely get rid of the fields.
I think this is an excellent point. And as far as the DG course goes, I'd vote to keep the fences instead of the pond. To the OP, do you a say in the matter at all? In either event, good luck with the course.
