Pros: This course has it all! uphill, downhill, trees, open, water, o.b's, even ducks and geese!
Great course for all kinds of players, somedays you will hit all your gaps and somedays you will seem to hit every tree on the course!
One of my favorite courses!!!
Cons: as baz said, a few holes need an alternate pin positions. we are still trying to find room to put them, but working on more alternate pins and tees.
Other Thoughts: Great course to play if your ever in Tupelo. Only one block from the birthplace of the "King of Rock and Roll"....Elvis

Pros: The ideal challenge course for an amateur player to finish par or under. This course asks you to perform diverse balance of throwing techniques.

A great mix of short to long holes will measure your overall skill level.

Pros: Pretty nice course.
Has almost every shot you can think of.
Can be pretty easy for amateurs when shooting from AM pads and in A basket positions, but medium for pros when shot from the Pro tee's and baskets are in B.
The course is kept up pretty nice.
Nice long concrete pads.
Cons: Holes 21-24 have gravel tee pads.
22 has stayed very wet everytime I played it.
Some of the tee pads are not level with the ground.
Other Thoughts: The water can be avoided on most of the water holes so no reason to not play them.
Keep in mind that i'm a AM player and this review may not be 100%, its just how I feel about the course.

bazkitcase5's review is much better than mine so give it a read too.

Pros: 27 holes! Who can complain! Of course it has every kind of hole you can think of. Lots of elevation change!
Cons: Few water holes to be aware of when throwing. Also as most courses in MS you can beat your disc to death on some of the holes. I spoke of the Elevation change earlier... that might make it hard on you old guys legs.
Other Thoughts: Read claytons review below. Way more informative than I can be.

Pros: Nice tee signs and large concrete tee pads on every hole. Several holes have benches, and the local bench builder plays disc golf and is in the process of adding more in the future. The design contains a little bit of everything, from lots of trees, to water, lots of elevation, and plenty of variety. There are your short technical shots, your long open shots, some which contain both, as well as holes that go right, left, and straight. It is the shorter, more wooded course of the 2 in this park.

It is well taken care of by the local club and gets a decent amount of play daily. 11 of the holes have longer/different tee pads for variety, as well as 2 sets of pin locations for 14 of the holes. The bathrooms and a water fountain are at the start of the course and you come back by them after hole 18.

Playing the short tees for 18 holes, while the baskets are in their A position, it is a very beginner friendly course (but you still have to hit your gaps). However, it can also be a challenging course for pros alike when played in all B positions, from the long tees.
Cons: While the design has some nice, technical shots, there are a few bad/gimmicky holes. As the course has evolved, some of the shorter, technical shots have opened up, leaving a really short and easy shot for advanced level players. This is part of the reason for a lot of the new changes, to create new challenges, but in some parts of the course, there is just no place to put a better tee pad or pin placement. Some of the concrete tee pads have started wearing down to the point that they can become really slick when it is wet/raining.
Other Thoughts: This is a fun to play course in a nice looking park that will test your overall game, especially if you play the different tees/pin placements. The park and rec. department supports disc golf and has a good active relationship with the club.

My original review was written when this course was 27 holes, but now it is only 18 and 9 of those holes were used in the creation of the second course on the property. Unfortunately, those 9 holes were the longer, more open holes that really helped the variety, so while the course is still solid, I had to rate it a little lower. It is more of a technical course now, with some unique shots and elevation change, which is what people will remember the most.
