Groundhog Grappler (REZ) - Jackson
Dogwood Classic - Memphis
Ztown Throwdown - Zachary, La
Fox Hunt - Hattiesburg
Ouchita River Road Open - West Monroe, La

I'm sure I left some out, but these are ones I've played a few times each.

Mango Classic - Mobile/Pensacola
Southside Smackdown - Mobile
City of Mobile Championships - Mobile
Halloween Howler - Mobile
Dogwood Classic - Memphis
Pot of Gold - New Orleans

The above 6 are very consistently in the top 10... The other 4 spots probably vary from year to year...

The biggest tournament in Lafayette... Ever since Jacques has been leading things in Lafayette, their top tournament of the year would definitely be in the top 10. Unless they host a championship or Louisiana States, the Spring Fling is normally the big one.

The biggest tournament in Jackson... Disc golf has been exploding in Jackson the last few years... Whatever tournament they put their full effort into for the year is top 10 worthy...

Mississippi State Championship - Depending on location...
Louisiana State Championship - Depending on location...
The Ouachita River Open in West Monroe, LA, is normally really good if someone puts in the time.
Baton Rouge, Hattiesburg, and Shreveport can all have big tournaments if they decide to do so.
Columbus, MS, features some of the best courses-- attendance/payout are normally not fantastic.
Biloxi is coming up and is in a really good location.

A lot of this list would just depend on who decides to put forth the effort in any given year. Also, I'm not as familiar with Arkansas, North MS, or the Florida panhandle so those areas probably have tournaments worth mentioning as well.

This is a tournament thread and there have only been two guys reply so far, both from the southern end of SN Land. Get a couple more folks from Yankee land (north of I-10) posting, and we'll see more North Mississippi and Memphis TOURNAMENTS.

I'm curious as to know your Top Ten.

Not to mention, I even stated that I wasn't very familiar with North MS. I almost said that Tupelo has a great disc golf scene but I don't know what their big tournament is...

All of these are in our area, also Derrick, we are starting the club in our area again. Hopefully we hold better attendance than last year. We had 12 show up and probably 8 people that wasn't in last years club. We should get tags this week if you are interested. If I am off work, we can carpool to some events.

I will say from experience that any event Zac Hudson does is worth the trip up there. The SNAC was outstanding this years!

I have never played there...But I hear Tupelo puts on the best tournaments in all the land.


Word is the guys up there never get butthurt because they get left off a list too.

This year was my first SNAC as this was my first year in tournament play. Had a great time. The courses were awesome but it is quite a haul. Most of the events I play are right in the Mobile/Fairhope/Pensacola area so my opinion would be extremely biased. Glad to see Fairhope come up on a few lists though

Your determination of a great tournament could differ from someone else.

If you enjoy the challenge of a course,

Tombigbee 2
Crystal Springs
Lake Lowndes Gold
Trace Gold
Fort Buhlow
George Ward (longs)

If you enjoy night life and partying with your destination,

New Orleans
Memphis
Mobile
Jackson

Shane

I do not believe any posters were putting Tupelo down for any of its tournaments, but lets face it if you go my attendance only then Mobile, New Orleans, Memphis, and Jackson are nearly always going to have the "edge". I do believe this years SNAC would rival any previous Championship. I hope to make it down to Mobile one day and play and likewise NO. But for a "small big town" Tupelo boasts some fine courses that will test nearly any DGer, Trace Gold, Thunderchief, Tombigbee 1 & 2, Veterans, not to mention nearby courses like Tallhatchie Trails, Booneville, Tishomingo (three courses) Hamilton,AL all within 50 miles of Tupelo. As a matter of fact North MS is home to many courses that are all within 90 minutes of Tupelo. So while we may not have the sheer numbers of some tournaments we have the facilities and a lot of people willing to do the work necessary to put on many quality tournaments.

Well said Ricco. I do believe Trace Gold is my favorite course out of the 50 or so I have played and I feel privileged to have a course like it within an hour drive. Id like to see another big Trace Open like we had back in 09. Anyways, glad to see my thread has so many responses.

If I had to pick a favorite course played, it would have to be Tombigbee 2. I only played it the once during SNAC, and it ate me alive. But now, knowing the layout and knowing what I should do, I feel I would score better. But the fact that it is basically a day of hiking mixed with an awesome round of disc golf makes it the most fun course I have played. We just dont have that kind of elevation change down here in Mobile
