Tee Time LbNA # 14172
|Placed Date||Apr 2 2005|
Difficulty: Medium (light walking, compass needed)
Directions to the Tee Time Letterbox:
Start from Interstate 40 in Hickory, NC and head north on Hwy 321. On the right hand side, before you reach the lake, there is a Lowe’s Foods. Turn right at the first light after the Lowe’s Foods. Turn left onto 12th St. Dr. NW (If you are not from Hickory please take the time to look at road names as you pass by them. Hickory has the most annoying road system in the world.). You will pass 3 public parks on your left, but you want to go to the first on your right, Glenn C. Hilton Memorial Park, it is a ways past the others. Park in the first parking lot and walk over to the Disc Golf Tee on the side closest to the main road.
At the beginning of each hole there is a map of the hole and the direction to go for the next hole. Follow these signs through the disc golf course, or play through if you have a disc or a normal Frisbee, until you reach hole 17. There is a path leading away from the fairway on the back of the cement pad and a few yards in it will meet with the Yellow Trail. Turn Right onto the Yellow Trail, and take 48-50 steps until you reach the second sign with the text “Yellow Trail”. Take a compass reading to 184° from the tree where the sign is posted and take 30 steps until you reach a tree with two trunks. The root closest you, the one with a split on top, hides the letterbox underneath.
I have moved out of the area, so please send me an email to let me know the condition of the box.
