We turn today to the PDGA. It is the sanctioning body of the sport. What does it do for you? We have a three-part poll concerning
the benefits local players feel about the PDGA!
Have you read the parkeddiscgolf.com article on disc golf demographics of December 1st? It offers some wonderful insights of the sport and brings some long overdue research to it’s demographics! Parkeddiscgolf.com is one of my favorite sites for informative articles about the sport without an over-indulgence of events and pro players like so many of the other DG sites. Their byline is “A DISC GOLF THINK TANK” and I believe they live up to it! You gotta love it when others think outside the box! I highly recommend checking it out. It is full of some great reads!
When I began these polls a few days I had no idea parkeddiscgolf.com had completed such extensive research. It will be interesting to see how our local composition of players stack up against Josh Woods research!
For today’s poll, we head back to disc golf ….
In the old days, Tupelo was known for their “short arm” courses. In recent years there have been many longer layout course constructed. What type course do you prefer?
I thought it would be enlightening to survey area disc golfers on various subjects pertaining to the sport, but not restricted to it.
We play alongside each other week after week, but know little about most of our fellow player, right? Although no individual answers will be kept, hopefully, this survey will allow each of some semblance of the culture of players near us. There will be separate polls, almost daily, that will span across a variety of topics … the sport, political, religious, economic, educational, career, relationship, etc.
It is my hope respondents will answer the various polls honestly as to allow all of us insights as to the composition of our players.
Today’s poll, the first of many enlightening questions, is purely DG related and one we all can answer easily ….
Testing a flipbook application to see if it’ll perform as I desire …
It seems to work quite well once you expand it to full screen. Also appeared nicely on phone size.
Which brings the question, would you prefer a caddy book such as this on your phone, or as a paper booklet?
The booklet give course and hole lengths, O.B.’s, some history, and an area for score or notes. Something like this should assist TD’s whenever a tournament brings in out-of-towners. I think it’s something the association should get behind for all our courses!

Hilly and wooded. Good assortment of layouts with short precision shots intermingled with longer open drive. Pro pads on most holes and alternate basket placements on several. The course requires a variety of shots with most holes being considered short and tight flight paths. Veterans is Tupelo’s first course and remains a favorite of many.
From Hwy 78 go south on Veterans Blvd, turn left into park just before the lake (street lined with flags). Or from Hwy 45 go east on Main St, turn left on Veterans Blvd, turn right into park just past the lake. Look for the American flags on both sides of the road. Then follow the drive around to the parking lot near a pavilion, restrooms, playground, and old farm silo. Hole 1 begins next to restrooms.
