Steve Sloan was just telling wellsbranch250 and I about this course and his fond memories last weekend. Doubt he knows it's closed.

Not that I was gonna make it out there to play anytime soon, but can you provide more info?

You linked to the Course Info page, which provide no idea that anything has happened (or is about to happen). There's a link to Emerald Park Disc Golf Club... but I didn't see anything about the course closing there, either.

From the Arizona Disc Golf Association FB page.

With a saddened heart, we are confirming the Freedom rumors are true. The new owners are no longer offering disc golf on their course. The AZDGA made one last attempt to enlighten the new owners of how beneficial that disc golf can be for their business to no avail.
We presented them with a business case, including the history of disc golf on this course, the amount of money that disc golf has brought to the course through green fees, leagues and events, and the fact that all the disc golf baskets and tee pads were paid for and installed by the disc golf clubs and community. We presented them with several ideas to help improve and grow their disc golf business. Unfortunately, none of this was enough to persuade the new owner's predetermined decision to no longer offer disc golf.
They have changed the name to Stripe Show Golf Course and will be re-opening tomorrow (1/9/20) offering only ball golf. They did state that they may be willing to open the course for disc golf tournaments for a $15 per player fee and a 50 player minimum.
Rob Hart of the Mesa Disc Golf Club is aware of the situation and will be contacting the new owners to finalize the disposition of the baskets.
