So while out traveling this weekend we decided to stop by and play Lost Indian Spring in Mississippi. It just happened to be the highest rated course in the area we were going to be relatively close to. What a pleasant surprise.
This is a great little course especially if you want to bring newer folks to teach them the game. It has some shot selection, BUT all but one basket is reachable in one throw for the average player, and all baskets are pretty straight down the fairway, they just use trees and such to force you to do something besides throw straight. The fairways are beautifully groomed, and even have low cut fairway, thicker rough on each side similar to a ball golf course. The area is beautiful also. I really enjoyed my game on this course. I walked away -1 playing par 3s and had never seen the place before. Not too bad, but I'm not that great either, I bet an advanced player could likely walk off this course -5 or higher first time, and a pro could walk off -10 or higher. It's an easy course with some nice little challenges thrown in for the average player.
I just wanted to say whomever helped design this course, kudos to you. I think all cities should have a beautiful little tune up course like this that players can use as warm up, or just get the gist of playing the game without being punished too harshly.
Course designers take note, the new players need terrific courses such as this one too. Stop by, check it out, and realize, they don't have to be long to be great.
