Fun little course
5 Helpful / 0 Not
Pros: Great course for newcomers from the short tees and a solid, fun course for advanced players from the long tees. It is a mostly short course with well defined fairways, great elevation, some OB (no water hazards), lots of trees, and lots of birdies! There is a decent amount of variety and the park keeps the course clean. This can be a fun little course to play if you are just out looking for a good time.
Camping is available, as well as cabins. The lodge at the end of hole 18 has restrooms and a water fountain.
Cons: Tee signs are decent, but old and some of the new holes do not have signs at all. The new concrete pads are ok, but a lot of holes still have the old concrete pads that are worn and very slick when it rains. This course is very righty friendly and a lefty with no side arm will have a tougher time than normal.
Also when it rains, the low levels of the course can get very muddy and tend to stay muddy during the winter. The only restrooms are at hole 18 or the lodge, which is at the end of the course. The half way point does not loop back to the beginning.
Also as usual for MS parks, it is $3 per vehicle to enter the park, but most MS residents buy the yearly pass for $42, which is valid for all MS state parks.
Other Thoughts: This is your typical older, par 3 course, that is the essence of deuce or die from the short tees. This is the course I first learned to play disc golf on and it can be a lot of fun to play. My original review had this course chalked up as being too easy for advanced players, but the addition of several long tees and benches have caused me to update my rating by a full disc. The newer long tees bring a much needed balance to the course and offer much needed variety and challenges for better players. I would recommend this course for anybody coming to Tupelo.

Pros: -No water in play, woot!
-Baskets were high quality mach's.
-Tee pads were mixed; some concrete, some gravel; I noticed one was carpet.
-The course is well marked with signs and some good maps before you begin hole 1.
-This heavily wooded course is designed pretty well to take advantage of the drastic elevation changes.
-Although it's heavily wooded, it was still maintained nicely as the fairways were well defined on most holes.
-There were some benches and trash bags along the way as an added convenience.
-The course is fun; and it has a variety of hole types and shots required.
-The elevation changes make for a challenging course.
-There are nice facilities at Tombigbee State Park: primitive and camper camping, nice bathrooms, several water hoses along the course, pavilions, grills, parking is good, beautiful scenery, and the locals are great.
Cons: - $3 entry fee normally.
- The baskets for holes 5, 8, & 10 converge at one point. During the tournament with 72 players in the field, it got congested in this area.
Other Thoughts: Overall a great course; I give it two thumbs up. It was fun and challenging. I enjoyed the elevation changes, especially when there were blind shots involved. The Tupelo dg group seems very involved with their courses.
The course has mostly woods with about five open holes. One of the guys I played with said beware of the "Tupelo roll", because the baskets are on the side of some very steep hills. It never got me, but I witnessed a few strokes lost to the Tupelo roll.
