Owen High Nature Trail DGC

Course conditions:

  • Unplayable
  • Bad
  • Decent
  • Good
  • Perfect

Minimally wooded, relying more on elevation and OB to keep things interesting. The interpretive tee-signs help players connect with the natural resources found on, and around, the school's campus; and, since the scorecards double as field-guides, players have the ability to identify common trees and bird species as they play their round.

COURSE HOURS.
3:30pm - Sunset on school days
8:00am - Sunset on weekends/summer
Course CLOSED DURING SCHOOL and major sporting events.

* Do not block gates *
If the gates are locked, park near the second gate and walk in. Play hole #9 (no diagram, but tee post is still there) as #1 and then make your way back around to hole #8.
Long walk between #4 basket and #5 tee. Continue in direction of hole 4 ~50 feet, cross road, walk down path, between ball fields, turn left at end, then go down hill to right for #5 pad.
