Can someone with an image hosting service that allows hotlinking please post the map.

Notes: The color gradations on the map represent 20 foot elevation changes.
After reviewing a few videos, the Christmas trees on hole nine should continue closer to the tee.
Elevation change on hole 18 should be +108 instead of +88 for an effective hole length of 774'
Wow ! The holy grail of NC disc golf in the mountains...and beyond ! Thank you !

Ha. The tradition continues amongst the best players in the mountains, these days...good to know where it started.

No slack for an over-the-hill fellow? Fair enough.

Boylan's had a rotational harvest system for their trees - differing plots at different maturities. Each year the course would change somewhat based on said harvest. For example, check the pic for hole #1. When I played, the trees were between 5-7' in that 'plot' area; it's obvious how this might affect play.

I was told that Boylan stopped the tournament because of all the work involved vs the 'return'. The course is something of a legend, however and running a farm, particularly a family farm, is TONS of work. He's done more than enough in disc golf.
