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 tee sign maps illustrate holes in use for the Black Bear layout. They attempt to illustrate terrain features correctly with a high level of detail. These maps are drawn to scale and are enhanced with distance ranges to show how far objects are from the tee and pin. Trees, bridges, streams and out of bounds lines can be easily assessed before taking a shot.
