Nice course. With 3 or 4 pin placements for each hole there is a lot of potential variety. What is unfortunate though, is that there are 2 baskets on each hole and this makes it difficult to determine which you should throw to. I tried to throw to the furthest basket, but this was not always clear. After a few holes I recognized that there was an orange market on the pole for what at least appeared to be the more difficult pin placement and then I used that basket as the target. VERY conf ...

George Ward ( GDUB) Disc Course is a fun course in an old neighborhood park in the Southside of Birmingham. Disc golf has been at Gdub since the early 80's with chains since 1990. The course is set up with a parking lot between the front and back nine. This allows for a quick 9 during lunch or a break to let the traffic thin. Yes, the park is right off I- 65. Get off at Exit 258 and you are 4 minutes from the parking lot. . From 65N turn right, 65S turn left go to the light at the bottom of ...

Been playing for about a year and this was my first time to play this park. I really enjoyed the park and the layout of the tees. Beautiful park with a mixture of shots. Really nice signs at each hole along with good tee pads for holes in the park. The day we played the course was set up with the baskets located in the 'A' position. There are three different pin positioins that each hole can choose to place a basket. Very well maintained park, when we went hardly anyone even there, it is was Me ...

One of my favorite courses I've played. It's been around for 30 years. Well maintained. A variety of shots. Fair course, for sure. If I'm in Birmingham, this is one course I want to make sure to play.

Course was in great shape for the EAT SLEEP DISC #2 event. Nice addition to the tee pad on 18. Gravel was a little tricky on a few of the pads and caused some sliding around. All in all well kept and fun course.

First time playing the course and I really enjoyed it. Not a very technical course but still really well designed and I will definitely play it again!

Great course, lots of elevation shift - nice, well maintained - beer stores nearby, good parking between tee #1/ Basket #9 and tee#10.

Definitely my favorite Alabama course. Nice elevation changes! Diverse holes and different challenges on each hole. Course is clean and well kept. Benches at every hole. Nice concrete pads for main 18. Overall, a must play if you are in the area!

Very heavily played course, almost always a crowd. Fairly open with a few tighter holes. Multiple baskets positions on each hole. Good variety.. Tom Monroe in the parking lot is the best thing about this course. Not a course I enjoy playing very much.

Park like course with at least two baskets on each hole. Played it on a really nice Sunday afternoon and had to wait all day on people walking dogs. Great course for beginners and a true second shot course as you can throw it almost anywhere off the tee and still have a chance for par with a good upshot. Baskets are kind of beat up and parking lit is kind of small and hard to find. Glad I played it but won't go back often.

My home course. Lots of elevation changes and lots of wide fairways to let you really throw your drives. Each hole has 3 pin locations, and usually 2 baskets are at each hole. It has an extra 6 holes between 14 and 15 that are heavily guarded by trees, so you can get some work on more technical shots (these holes usually only have 1 basket). It is pretty much in downtown Birmingham, so it would be easy to check out if your are just in the city for the day.

A great all-around course for beginners and pros alike. Two tee pads and multiple pin placements make for a different experience every time out. A wide variety of holes and a friendly community atmosphere make this a great place to play. Just watch out for the occasional dog-walker, jogger, or metal detector enthusiast in this neighborhood park.

A longer city park course with very good variety. PROS: + EXTRA BASKETS + My favorite thing about George Ward is the two baskets on every hole, well 18 holes. This appears to have occurs something around 2013 from reading the reviews. Considering that there is no extra tees, the extra set of baskets really makes this course approachable to a wide swath of skill levels. The loop of holes (A) thru (F) only have the one basket however. + UNIQUENESS + For an all par 3 course the variety is ...

Very nice and well maintained course. Course is mostly open, but makes good use of the surrounding trees, creek, and hills so that many shots are still technical. There is usually a group of local pros that hangout and sell discs in front of hole 1. Although not as challenging/grueling as some of the other courses in the area this is one of the most fun to play.

Good course. kinda in the ghetto, but the park is actually really nice most places. The used needle Frink found on the course hurts a bit though.
