Challenging, especially with my game!
Pros: Moccasin Bend is a challenging course from 1 to 18. Several short holes to start, that require pin point tee shots to clear the trees. Water provides hazards on a few holes. The longer holes also take well placed drives if you want the birdies. Quite a few memorable holes. #4 is a tunnel shot over 200+ feet of water. Options are limited from most of the tees, testing your ability to make many different types of drives. Play moves fairly fast since the course isn't crowded, and felt compact to me. The park is easy to get to from I-20, and discs are for sale at the entrance.
Cons: No concrete on the tee boxes bothered me a little, some were worse than others. Improving the tees would push my rating to 4 discs. I would say one or two of the fairways were non-existent, if I hadn't watched Ken drive them most of the way to the pin.
Other Thoughts: I will most likely revisit the Bend for a shot at redemption. We played twice, and my 2nd round was one shot higher than the first. A very good course in a picturesque setting. Thanks to MagicTenor1 for suggesting, and then guiding my journey through Moccasin Bend.

Pros: There are a lot of variety of shots when playing this course and is set in a beautiful park. Very fun course to play.
Cons: Some holes have no real strategy. Just grip and rip and try to get lucky because there is no skill involved. One hole theres is not even a path to throw in its just throw it somewhere and try to get lucky.
Other Thoughts: Fun course but should not be ranked 2nd in the state. Memorial (Tupelo) and The Rez are both ahead of this one by a lot.

Pros: Roosevelt State Park is beautiful, and the course is lovely and scenic. For those who like a course that is like a moderate trail hike, you'll like this place. Superb & clean campground facilities. Lots of trees and tricky shots and some water OBs too. A couple of pin placements on tricky peninsulas that are challenging and fun.
What I like most about this course is that no two holes are really alike out here. You never get that feeling you get at some places where feel like you've "already played this hole."
Cons: It was kinda hard to find the course after getting into the park, but the park is worth seeing if you get lost. Take a left when you pass the entrance ranger station.
The course is best played in the cooler months of the year. When the grass gets high ticks are possible (use precautions).
Possible to lose discs on the water holes. Bring a floater or use discs you won't miss on the water holes.
Other Thoughts: Designed by the up-and-coming Doug "Jabba" Williams so you know it's well done.
Moccasin Bend has a pretty good variety of shots. I like hole 11 which is on the side of an earthen dam and has a steep steep fairway.

Superb wooded course!
Pros: It is 1 minute off of I-20. Good variety of wooded holes. Hole 4 is about 240 to clear the water. for ams like me shots like that feel good when you pull one off but are visually intimidating and you can get psyched out and lose a lot of discs so throw your least favorite plastic on 3&4. Best levee type shot I have ever seen I think is hole 12. It is over 400 but the elevation advantage for short arms like me that usually max out at 300 allows you to actually have a chance to birdie a beautiful over 400 ft. shot! Course is well marked with signs and arrows on trees, just look around. After playing the first 17 which are mostly in the woods hole 18 has the best timing of any hole 18 that I have played. It is a 400 ft.( wide tunnel shot) that the bombers and short arms alike can appreciate after plying the first 17. Several scenic/epic type holes that will definitely stick with you and make you want to drive to Mississippi more often.
Cons: Hole 15. I just don't like 90 degree right angle shots, but once you get up to the basket you will be looking straight out at a scenic view. You will have to spot this hole in order to know where you want to land for your approach shot. the pad for hole 17 is in the back left corner of 16's basket
Other Thoughts: This course is worth making a long drive if you like playing high quality wooded golf courses as much as I.

PLAY THIS COURSE
Pros: Great mix up of holes. It's very well put together. Is very demanding even from the best of players. Accuracy is a must. It has plenty of anhyzers and hyzers to test your game out! The baskets are all in excellent condition and no problems really hitting the chains and sticking on them. The course has plenty of shade to hid from the sun on as well as plenty of open holes to get you that tan you've been wanting! All the holes are well marked so you should have no problem knowing where you are going. The course is kept trimmed by the park staff who are all so nice for doing this for the disc golf community. I have heard a few of them even play a pretty good bit. There are a few benches around the area to sit down and take a break at!
Cons: You can lose your disc here pretty easily on some of the holes. No doubt if you are a backhander without much exp on the dam hole. You have to throw VERY far and have no room to play with to your left. It could really use some more trashcans. There is a bunch of poison ivy in the area so be careful if you are allegric to it. There is one whole where you backtrack a bit to get to the next hole (you don't get in any fairways though so thats as plus)
Other Thoughts: You HAVE to go play this course if you are anywhere in the Jackson or Meridan areas. It is well worth the drive to play it and it's a very easy drive. I-20 all the way.

Pros: Good mix of hole types. Very technical shots, long narrow shots, and some elevation change. Easy to find your way around the course once you get there. Very nice scenery. A couple of epic type holes includes throwing the entire hole over water. One where the basket sits near the top of a huge hill. A little bad luck could cost you dearly on this hole. Nice baskets.
Cons: Can be very muddy after rains. Some holes seem to require more luck than skill with so many trees and no real lanes to throw down.
Other Thoughts: Although the course is somewhat short, there is quite a bit of walking required between some holes. Three dollars to get in the park. Overall, it's definitely worth playing if you're near the area. Very fun course to play.

Trip to Morton
Pros: Very challenging and fun. New Mach baskets set at a good height. Tee pads are in good shape. Signs and markings are well placed and helpful. The course is fairly well maintained, especially considering some of the thick woods. There's a few benches and trash bins along the way that come in handy too.
Cons: The flow of the course is a little awkward at times. For some of the holes you must backtrack from the basket to the next teepad (17 is the worst). This could hinder the speed of play on a busy day.
Other Thoughts: This is a very nice course overall. It's very scenic playing through Roosevelt State Park. Some of the tee pads are concrete and some are dirt, but they work well together. The majority of the holes are wooded, which provides a good challenge. There is also some elevation that comes into play on the course.Parking could be a problem on a busy day. The day I went, it was not very crowded which made it fun.

Pros: Very nice mix of holes,wooded and open,with hills and water in play on several holes.Course is well marked. Park has good overall facilities with a pro shop that has a fair selection of discs There are a few signature holes. #4 shoots down a narrow inlet of about 200 to carry the water and #12 shoots downhill off the top of the dam. many holes have great views of the water.
Cons: Tee pads are not all good. On some holes with multiple pins you can't tell where the pin is without walking down the fairway.There is a bathroom in a building right next to the course but the building is usually locked. The other facilities ie pro shop are not next to the course.
Other Thoughts: Beautiful course. One of my favs. With a few minor changes could be one of the very best.
