Welcome to Tupelo Disc Golf Leagues! Continuing the tradition of promoting the sport locally, this site offers area players a unique system for disc golf competitions. It allows tournament directors to advertise their event(s) and submit results directly online. All events are included in the overall points series and can also be tied along with other events for smaller, multi-event points series, or leagues.
If you would like to compete in a “Pitch n’ Putt” type event like the trial one of March 18th, when would be the best time?
- Saturday Mornings 9am - 1
- Friday Evenings 6pm - 0
- Sunday Evenings 5pm - 0
- Other - 0
PP11 events should not conflict or overlap scheduled tournaments, minis, or other DG related events of the TDGA. The “Pitch n’ Putt” format includes 18 holes of disc golf plus 33 to 44 putts per event. Some events may be putting events only and may be up to 66 putts. If you’re not familiar with the Pure Putt 11 Android app, check this link. There are three putting format that will be used: Strategy, Pure, & Ladder. It’s good to know before your throw! 😉
All rounds are recorded in a database so you’ll be able to track your improvements as time goes by! All rounds scheduled at no charge and no payouts, Should enough interest and participation amass, we’ll discuss those option at that time.
Anyway, the 3-18 round was lots of fun and I believe a lil’ variety is truly that spice of life. Hope you’ll give it a shot!

The rain blew out and it was a great morning of DG. The PP11 app performed great and the combination of putting and playing a round has begun. T’was fun and added a new twist. We’ll do this again soon!
Not really sure if anyone wants this type of data, but I’ve taken the Facebook images of mini results so far this year and slapped them into a newly created TDGA Mini League via the Mississippi Disc Golf database. There is a menu link above or you can access the league page here. It is also included as a custom tab page on the TupeloDGLeagues Facebook page (although not visible via mobile devices).
I don’t get to attend minis and tournaments much any longer but know I always desired to know how my play stacked up against others when I did. I figure others in the area may have this same desire. True? As I mentioned, the results were taken from images off the Facebook page. Some names and divisions are barely legible so I don’t make any guarantees to the records overall accuracy. However, it does organize everything in one neat little package, and if you play the minis frequently, it gives you an idea where your “stack up’ against the other players. I thought I’d throw this out there as I believe organizing the sport also promotes it … and to promote it to a higher level, it needs to be organized.
Let me know what you think. Is it worth the time and effort to track such data and have it available for local disc golfers? If so, would you be willing to volunteer to enter results? Do you think it helps promote the sport? The club? If you don’t mind, please take the brief survey below and let me know your thoughts!

Want to be a Guinea pig? Are you competitive? Are you looking for “something different” than regular old mini’s or tournaments? I’m testing something different this weekend at the Veterans course.
As many of you know, I developed a tournament points database for tracking event and player statistics. Then, I got involved, designed and created an Android putting app for running putting competitions while also recording individual putting stats. I would like to combine both these technologies and offer to those interested a series of “Pure Putt 11 Pitch and Putt” events.
Do I still have your interest? If so, you’re likely asking “what’s involved” or “what’s the format”?
Time: 9:00am Saturday
Where:Veterans Practice Basket
Start – Groups of players will putt one round each of 11 putts (Round #1)
Play – Group will play 18 holes after completing round #1 Veterans Park Original (Round #2)
Finish – Group will putt two rounds of 11 putts each competitor (Rounds #3 & #4)
This event hasn’t been advertised anywhere but on Tupelo Disc Golf Leagues. It’s a test and an abundance of players is not desired. However, those of you on TDGL that see this “last minute” post and what to check out what Pure Putt 11 is all about, please come on out to Veterans Saturday morning. All scores will be added to an event database. Another similar “intro” event will be coming up in the next couple of weeks. We’ll see what the future brings with this type of competition concept.
For those of you who follow this site I’ve been working diligently towards the development of a much broader site. Past efforts of revamping the SN site are being redirected towards development of a new site featuring only Mississippi tournaments, sort of a Mississippi points series of events!
To get the 2016 season started, Dustin allowed us to include his Ice Bowl events of this past weekend. Some of our southern Mississippi TD’s have been contacted and we’ll include their events as well. Robby’s Weapons of Grass Destruction are “on the books” and we’re testing an online pre-registration feature with his first event at Tomgibee.
Mississippi is #50 in many categories. Let’s make it #1 is disc golf!
