Water and Wide Open
Pros: Great for the big arms that like to "air it out". It is adjacent and compliments the Original Vets course where distance and length of drives are not as important.
The layout surrounds a lake that creates some beautiful scenery and holes.
Cons: It's length can be difficult for beginners and even AM players where an occasional birdie is desired. They'll be rare on Thunderchief. The goal is more to not bogie, or worse!
Lack of shade during hotter month lessens available playing times for most.
Many drives are a bit repetitive and the terrain does not offer many natural challenges other than water.
Other Thoughts: The course is well maintained and allows dedicated players to "step up" their games in comparison to many of the other local courses. The 1-2-3 combo of Vets, Thunderchief, and Music Bend will allow the possibility of some awesome tournaments!
Distance, water, repeat
Pros: Big arms will like airing it out on this mostly open and flat course. Basket placement and use of OBs still keep this course a challenge. Benches and trashcans spread throughout the park.
Cons: Bring sunscreen because there isn't much chance to find shade. Hole 4 was a swamp days after the rain had stopped, and many holes were still soggy. Ams will feel intimidated by the holes that play by the water.
Other Thoughts: This course is a nice compliment to the original course which is very hilly and wooded. Hole 17 is the signature hole which is an approx 250' shot over one lake then another 100-150 feet to the basket which backs up to another lake. This course is still being worked on but is playable now.
Tough, can be tougher
Pros: A new course in Tupelo, which is quickly becoming a DG destination. Good baskets, nice park, tees are mostly in good shape some are concrete, some not. Signs are pretty good also, some benches are available but not every hole. A longer more open course that will suit the better player and will intimidate the more inexperienced. Well thought out design that used the property wisely.
Cons: Does not loop back after 9 holes but does for the 18. No shade to speak of, I imagine in the summer months this will be the biggest complaint. Bathrooms at the old Course which is not far from hole 1 of the new course, but no more that I am aware of.
Other Thoughts: I am not a young golfer and not a long arm off tee, but I still enjoyed my round and managed to play around even the day I played. Some OBs and water hazards make you aware of placing your shots to score well. Windy days could play havoc with your game on this long, open course, but if you have some knowledge and play smart you can still navigate it with a decent score. I can see the local TDs tightening up some of the bail out areas and then this bad boy could really have some bite in it. Overall an enjoyable course,especially if you like to air it out.
