Welcome to the Evergreen GeoDiscGolfCache (GDGC) Course. A GeoDiscGolfCache is a mash-up of my two favorite pastimes: geocaching and disc golf. This is a multi-cache that plays like a disc golf course. The cache celebrates the early days of disc golf, when there were few developed courses. Most players just used found objects as targets as they made their way through a course of their own invention.
There are seven “holes.” In an effort to avoid impact to the environment, all of the holes (except the final) are old metal signs that say “No Motorized Vehicles.” The final hole is an actual disc golf basket that has been placed in the park by EPRD (actually there are two – you can use either one). Just smack the sign – front or back – with your disc and you’ve made the hole.
The listed coordinates are for the tee-off location (a waypoint for parking is also provided). A distance and orientation, from the tee to the hole, is provided here for the first hole:
408 feet at an orientation of 192 degrees
The fairways range from about 200 to 500 feet in length. You may be able to spot the hole from the tee on some, but you will probably need take a bearing using the orientation data on the longer ones. Use an actual compass, or your GPS's compass to take a bearing. Just remember that you should be moving in a straight line in order to get an accurate bearing with a GPS compass.
The coordinates of the physical cache are located somewhere on the two baskets that constitute the 7th hole. The final is a camo'ed plastic ammo box.
You don't have to throw discs to complete this cache, or get credit for it...but it will probably be more fun if you do!
