Airborn Preserve

The terrain is not terribly steep at the DGPT Preserve Championship. However, slight changes in elevation can affect play by trapping low shots, causing tricky footing for upshots or by allowing the disc to skip away from the basket on a downslope. Add to this the liberal use of water hazards and the challenge only increases. None of the official maps for the event indicate the undulation of the playing surface. Shorelines and streamlines are not always drawn correctly. Often they are misplaced or not to scale.

The following two tee sign maps of holes 16 & 18 in use for the Black Bear layout attempt to illustrate these features correctly with a high level of detail. A map is drawn to scale can also be enhance with a distance range to show how far objects are from the tee. Tree, bridges, streams and out of bounds lines can be easily assessed before taking a shot.
