WHERIGOlf
   - Our FORE!-th* Wherigo Geocache -

The posted coordinates are for the entrance of Hughes Park in Hudsonville, MI.

Enter the park, and you will soon see the Disc Golf course that is used for playing this Wherigo cartridge.


To find the actual location of the container - you must play and complete the "WHERIGOlf" Wherigo Cartridge.

The Setting:


The coordinates listed are for the entrance to Hughes Park in Hudsonville, MI. In this park you will find an 18-hole Disc Golf course, multiple baseball fields, tennis courts, a basketball court, a beach volleyball court, horseshoe pits, and playplaces for the micro-cachers. Enjoy your day at the park today! This Wherigo will take you to the 18-hole Disc Gold course. This is a nice little park tucked away in Hudsonville.  Be watchful of muggles if they are out on the course. If you want to blend in, bring your "Wham-O" and play the course while playing this Wherigo. I would be curious which score is better.

The Experience:

This Wherigo allows you to play a "virtual" game of disc golf. You will see each hole marked with a par value, and in the catridge, you will be given a score at each hole. In the end, you will take your "virtual scorecard" to the scorekeeper. Once you complete the cartridge, you will be given the coordinates to the final location of this geocache. Once successful finding the container, you will be able to log this Wherigo geocache.

Please note that you do not have to physically through a frisbee, er I mean disc, to play this cartrdige, you just need to walk the course. I don't recommend throwing your GPS/Wherigo Player either.
