Worth the stop
Pros: This is a real nice kept course. Park officials and local golfers keep it in tip top shape.
Concrete tee pads on all holes, tee signs and distances. Bathroom is close, around # 12 or so.
Good mix of shots on a majority of the holes. The front 9 are the more easier holes with # 9 being the exception, it's 444' and the first 200' has to be accurate to get past the trees to land in a field. # 5 is an accurate tunnel shot through a tree line about 15' wide, 40' off the box, the RHBH hyzer is always an option unless the mando between the gap is in affect. # 14 is the peninsula hole with water in front, to the left and behind the hard pin location. There are two pin locations on this hole, the 2nd location is a lot easier and takes the water out of play but an errant shot can still make it's way in the drink.
Cons: Tee boxes are a little short to my likings, only about 5' maybe. Baskets are a little old as this being an old course I think these are the original baskets. Get a lot of spit outs on these single chain baskets. Course is around 9 years old I think. This being a state park 3$ pay to play but don't let that stop you from coming, well worth it. None really cons, just my personal peeves.
Other Thoughts: There is a great local disc golf community that takes care of the park and are into keeping this park in good condition. Park also has a miniature 18 hole putt putt course & has a restaurant for after your round.
The pro shop is the best I've seen in a state park and is even better than most dealers.
Deer roam freely in the park, over the weekend there I saw at least 20 deer, sometimes in groups of 5 or more. They don't run off, you can even bet the does! Never seen anything like this before.
Worth the stop ? Definitely.

Pros: Really fun course to play in a beautiful park with several holes along Enid Lake. There is a great mix of shots from short to long, open and wooded. There is not a lot of elevation change in the park, but a few holes make good use of that little change. There are concrete tee pads and the older model Mach III baskets catch just fine.
It has been a couple of years since I last played this course, but there is also a lodge, with a decent disc selection, bathrooms, and a water fountain. There is also a small restaurant next door with really good food. Like most MS state parks, camping is available.
This course also has an alternate gold layout that is a lot more challenging and just as much fun, but I am not sure if it is still used. The park ranger who designed it has since left the park and they have not had a tournament there in a couple of years. It was designed such that both layouts could be played at the same time if you knew which baskets you were throwing to aim at.
Cons: Being in a MS state park, it is $3 per vehicle to enter, but most MS disc golfers buy the yearly pass for $42, which is good for all state parks in MS.
When the water level is down, some of the open/water holes lose some of their steam and become easy par/birdie holes. I do not recall the course having tee signs last time I was there but the course was not all that difficult to navigate.
Other Thoughts: This course is a lot of fun to play for all skill levels, especially with the gold layout I mentioned. The water really only comes into play on a few holes and there is plenty of safe landing areas if you can control your disc. The park is seemingly in the middle of no where, but if your just passing through and want to play some disc golf, then I would highly recommend this course. I look forward to playing this course again in the near future and will update my review accordingly.
