Disc Golf Course Review – George Ward Park – Birmingham, AL


Needs a Little TLC, but a Great Course

  • Pros: Great Course in the Heart of Birmingham. It’s really well designed, and has 6 extra holes for a total of 24 holes of disc golf. Offers a variety of challenges and makes really good use of the terrain. Seemed to have a local following of golfers, there was even a local pro there hanging out in the park offering advice, and selling discs out of his van. Good tees and good baskets.
  • Cons: Was a little run down. Needs new tee signage on certain holes, and better signage in the park, so that you know where to start (we wandered a bit before figuring it out). It’s kind of in the ghetto (not that I care, but some might). It needed mowing when we were there.
  • Other Thoughts: Really enjoyable course with a great design. It’s rather open, but makes good use of terrain and trees. This course will continue to challenge players of all levels, but it’s not outlandishly hard. I’ll definitely visit it again if I’m in Birmingham. Full Review Here.
