Prepare to walk
Pros: Pretty good mix of different types of shots. The first couple of holes are the trickiest having to navigate through wooded areas. After that it's pretty much open with very long distances.
Cons: Where to start?? As stated earlier, be prepared to walk.......ALOT!! With the distance you have to cover, they could have easily put 2 courses in the park. Distances on the boxes are wrong. No benches or water fountains on the course. You don't have a clear cut direction of where the tee boxes are located. One of the tee boxes is merely lines painted on the walking track.
Other Thoughts: The only reason I play this course is because it's 5 minutes from where I work. It's convenient for me to just swing by after work. But of all the courses I've played, this is by far the one I like the least.

Pros: Nice and fun to play, featuring mostly long and semi-open holes in a grassy area. Good design, no real trouble to get into. Well maintained.
Cons: The real problem is navigation. The directory doesn't help an out-of-towner like me actually find the course, so I took the wrong entrance. I had to find someone and get a map and be pointed to the other entrance. Once there, the gate was locked and I had to walk 3/4 Mile straight back to get to the 1st tee. There are times you have to cross under a highway and over a barbed wire fence, with no next tee markers, blindly searching for the next tee.
Other Thoughts: Do not bother without a MAP, a LOCAL or at least a solid understanding of how to find it.

Pros: Good concrete tee pads and DISCatcher baskets. This course has a great design that will test your distance and accuracy. The course starts off with some wooded holes to test your technical side, then progressively gets longer, before settling back down with some more open technical shots with all walking paths (in and across except for hole 3 and 18, which play the path as a stream) playing as OB.
This is a blue level pro course on mostly flat land that is a lot of fun to play if you enjoy challenging yourself.
Cons: The bathrooms are at the pavilion at the parking lot of the course, which is a good 5 minute walk to hole 1. The course does not loop around at the half way point. There is no running water and there are no benches. There are only 1 set of tees (except for hole 9) and course can be difficult for newcomers. There are no tee signs (the distances are on bricks in the tee pads) and the only established club is the Tupelo club that is 30 minutes away.
Other Thoughts: Despite all the cons, it is a fairly new course and the local player base is starting to grow. Personally, I really like the course design wise, but it may take a few years to fully develop it to its maximum potential. After you make the long walk over the bridge for hole 1, the course follows a pretty natural progression, with a good bit of walking, so bring plenty of water. After hole 10, you will walk under the overpass to play 11-13, then walk back under the overpass for hole 14.
