Please come out and see our first course on the Northshore! It is similar to playing Lafreniere Park on steroids. Unique basket placements and the mix of long and short tees will make this very challenging. Pelican Park has been very supportive of disc golf to the area. The Park Director Kathy Foley used to play disc golf in Iowa and she was very helpful in getting this course installed.

On a side note, you need to remember that St Tammany Parish incarcerates (puts people in jail) more readily than anywhere in the United States. (My source is a St Tammany Parish unnamed Counselor).

what does that mean, it means although there are no signs saying NO ALCOHOL, and much less no illegal smoking substances, you cannot, shall not and will not do this under any circumstance do this. I promise you, it will not be tolerated and it may ruin all the hard work that many locals put in to making this course come about.

Please refrain, or go for a ride in your car during lunch time somewhere off the Park property.

The TD will not tolerate it, the NO TEAM members will not tolerate it and surely the St Tammany Parish Sheriff's Office will not tolerate it.

Thank you Don for bringing that point up, you are %100 percent correct, the park is absolutely alcohol free and this has been a big topic in discussions leading up to this event. There will be announcement during the players meeting along with a statement in the tournament program that goes like this.
There is a strict no-alcohol policy at Pelican Park, alcohol and/or illegal substances on park property will not be tolerated. Violators of this policy will be disqualified immediately with no refunds!

I'm looking forward to playing this course in the tournament layout which is a good mix of the short and long pin placements.

For those of you who haven't played Pelican Park yet, it's in the style of Municipal in Mobile or Hiller Park in Biloxi or Lafreniere Park in Metairie...fairly long and open but enough trees to make you hit your lines. Excellent tee signs, low-cut grass which is perfect for rollers and skips, and Mach 5 baskets. Plenty of restaurants right outside the park, fast and slow for the lunch break.

Is the course holding any water?
Re: The Pelican State Open @ Pelican Park DGC Mandeville, La Sat. Feb. 15th
February 13, 2014 08:36PM
the course will have some standing water in areas, but generally drains well. there is a drainage ditch that comes into play on holes 2,3,5 and 6.
I will know more about the water tomorrow evening. Anyone interested in signing up at the course on Friday can meet with Don Perkins, he will be out there from 4 to 6pm, i will be in New Orleans all day but can still take registration over the phone if needed

Here is a complete update of the tournament results, please note that all amateur players received a players pack valued at $16 and that lunch was provided and valued at $4 per person. There were also plaques awarded in each division and those have been valued at $20 apiece.

What started out as a chilly, breezy day slowly warmed up and by lunch time the coats were replaced with t shirts. Even though the scores were not at their best in the first round Hagen Napier from Hattiesburg,Ms managed to throw his first ace and the only ace of the day on hole 5. Eric Day managed to pull off the best score in the first round with a 49 and was also able to hold on to the lead carding another 49 to win the advanced division by one stroke and John Fowler shooting an impressive 44 for the second round was our Pelican Park Open Champion with the lowest overall score of 95.

I want to say thank you to everyone who helped out in anyway with this tournament, Johnathan, John and Mike with the score board, Don with the ring of fire, Casie for doing whatever needed to be done, anyone else that i may have missed and thank you to all the wonderful sponsors that helped to make this possible.

Thanks Joe & NOTeam for having us over to play. Well run event with good people and good company.

It was immediately evident that the folks in charge of Pelican Park do a top notch job and take great pride in their work. Every square inch of the park was well maintained, the facilities were clean and well organized, trash cans were abundant and signs to help navigate the course and the road in were clear and concise. That must have been winter rye grass on the soccer & lacrosse fields because it was lush, green and healthy despite all the cold weather. Very nice course in a very nice park!
