Cool New Course
3 Helpful / 0 Not
Pros: -Brand new Mach V baskets.
-Tee signs with pertinent info and fancy sign posts on every hole. (The signs themselves are hand drawn with stickers for numbers and zip-tied to the posts, but these are temporary.)
-Course flows well (with only minor exceptions). No map needed.
-Nice variety: Long and short open holes; tight, technical wooded wooded holes both long and short; O.B. and water also come into play on several holes.
-Good use of elevation and obstacles (natural and man-made)
-Parking available near Hole #1 and course loops back around with #18 basket close to parking area, also.
-The course is clean and well maintained and the scenery is wonderful.
Cons: Not much in the way of amenities. Only one bench, it's on Hole #11 and it looks like it was there before the course. No trash cans on the course, either. No convenient restrooms. (This IS a new course, these are in future plans)
-Some of the wooded holes are still a little rough around the edges with debris and small tree stumps tripping you up in the fairways. Although, I'm listing this as a con, I didn't factor it in the rating. This will 'fix' itself over time and with regular traffic.
-Hole #6 needs a makeover. A 310' hole, with two, left hand turns (almost 90 degrees, each) and around 200' of fairway between them, on a wooded hole with a 10'-15' wide lane to throw down. You can't see the tee or basket from your second shot, even if you land in the fairway.
Other Thoughts: I had high expectations for The Lynx and was not disappointed. Yes, there are quite a few things that it still needs, but it's a new course and things like professional tee signs, Pro tees, alternate pins, benches & trashcans are in the works. I would recommend this course to anyone.
If you're making a trip to Hattiesburg PLAY THIS COURSE! It's worth the 20 min. drive.
From Jackson or Meridian it's about an hour... still well worth the drive.

Excellent New Course in South Mississippi
Pros: This course is absolutely beautiful. The surrounding area is definite eye candy. There is a fountain in the middle of the lake that you throw over and there are old oak trees on some of the holes. The holes have great variation; from completely launching a disc, to finessing it through the woods, to throwing over water, and all in between. The tee signs are beautiful, probably the best signs I have ever seen, especially around other courses such as the PVC pipes at Paul B. or the signs tacked to trees at Tatum Trails. It is on a college campus, so the course is regularly mowed. The baskets are brand new and have the proper taping on the neck as to see them from far away.
Cons: There are great tee signs but I suppose you use them as the tee marker also. The woods need a little bit of stamping down, as any new course that incorporates woods would. Other than that it is a pretty perfect course. Would play it every day if I could.
Other Thoughts: Props to the designer, but maybe a few holes need to be manipulated around the band field, but that is my only suggestion! Good job!
