We are writing to express our sincere disappointment to the permanent closing of the Willow River State Park Disc Golf Course located at Willow River State Park.
On Nov. 15 we entered Willow River State Park to play disc golf. We have played at this course many times but it was a while since we have played Willow River. We purchased a parking pass.
When we entered we saw a sign saying the Disc Golf Course was closed. We went inside the office and we were told it was permanent closing. We are very disappointed that our home course is closed. The next closest course is in River Falls. That course however is not equivalent to the play experienced at Willow River State Park’s Course. To find an equivalent course we now will have to travel to St. Paul.
We were informed by the park official of several reasons for the decision on the closing:
Lastly I am asking for support the reopening of the Willow River State Park’s Disc golf Course. I know the state park still owns the baskets. I also am confident we can work together to address the concerns that are still exist.
And if we fail in saving the disc golf course at Willow River State Park I ask for support in opening a disc golf course in another location in Hudson.
