Gonna be in town for Widespread Panic and will only have time to play one round!
Who's up for a Saturday round before the show?

George Ward is the only one in Birmnigham. There's two good ones in Trussville, but that's a bit of a haul from Oak Mtn.

We'll be there but not sure how early. DG could be in the itinerary, but not sure yet.

George Ward for sure! It is a 27 hole course with a great variety! About 15-30 minutes from Oak Mountain (I think...been a while) to the course...depending on traffic.

That would be such a AWESOME time :)

It is? I didn't notice. ;-)

Have fun.

Check back here, ribs. I have the day off so there's a good chance we'll leave early and play Ward before the show. I do want to get to the venue early. And if it's raining, no golf for me! ;-)

When this one opens, I'll be visiting my Alabama family more often:

Inverness (Hoover) Nature Park

Quote
From Discgolfbirmingham.com
With the land provided by the City of Hoover, DGB has been tasked with installing a championship level disc golf course at the "Inverness Nature Park". The Inverness Nature Park is a tract of land located only three miles south/east of the 459/280 interchange. The park is mostly wooded with a few open areas, rolling hills, and some water. Initial plans for the park include parking, benches & trash cans with future plans to include restrooms and a pavilion.

With the available land, we're expecting a championship level course that will play Par 60+ from the Pro tees! Initial estimates have the Pro tees at almost 8,000', for comparison George Ward is 5,600'! Am tees will be similar in length to George Ward but will provide additional challenges with wooded fairways and elevation.
