Catawba Meadows Park Scorecard - "Tree Love"

Trail length:
1.50 miles
When disc golfers hit a tree with their disc and get a favorable bounce, they call that “Tree Love”. Use the pictures on this scorecard to identify a few of the trees found here at Catawba Meadows Park. Every time you hit a tree with your frisbee, take a second to try to identify it. Look at its bark, leaf shape and other identifying features. Soon, identifying trees will be as easy as making a five foot putt.
