Pros: *Not crowded
*Enjoyable
*GREAT CHANCE FOR AN ACE
Cons: *Not well thought out
*Not really any actual tee pads
*Not technical at all
Other Thoughts: Get ready to unleash your driver! Unless you live in the Birmingham area or close by, I wouldn't plan to make a stop here for disc golf when there is much better out there.

Pros: 18 holes, beginner friendly, decent practice course, well mowed grass, easy walking
Cons: only two or three holes had any kind of obstacles, wide open, dirt tees get muddy, no concrete tees, not much challenge, almost every hole gives an advanced player a good chance for birdie.

Pros: This is a well maintained beginner friendly disc golf course set in a beautiful college campus backdrop. While advanced and open level golfers will find it lacking in challenge it can still provide an enjoyable round and get you some solid mid-range practice. The course designer did a nice job of providing an introductory level disc golf course that has some potential to be lengthened in the future.
Cons: Most players don't mind natural tees, but some tees at this course are unlevel for no apparent reason. Hole #14, the longest hole on the course has a downhill teeing surface. By backing this tee up 50' this problem could have been eliminated. Other minor cons include some course flow issues and lack of benches.
Other Thoughts: Unfortunatly this course has limited potential to rise to a higher level due to the lack of trees and technical terrain. It's still an enjoyable course in a beautiful college setting. It's definitely worth a play, just for the mid-range and putting practice!

Pros: This 18 hole course sits on nice land that is primarily used for disc golf. The course is mostly open with isolated trees as obstacles, nice lush grassy fairways, some length, and some use of elevation. Water (small creek) in play on 17 and 18. There are several really nice holes here that are fun and challenging to play.

Even though it was on a campus, no parking permits/permission were required. There is a large lot between the student center and hole 1 that appeared to open parking for all.
Cons: There are no teepads of any kind. Just a white post in the ground, so you pretty much just end up just making your own tee on every hole. Navigation was a little tricky with no tee signs or maps available or numbered baskets.

Some of the holes were not that great- some were just a basket in an open field- not really a course in my opinion. One hole had a couple of old semi-trailers in the middle of it which was kind of ugly. Another hole had soccer nets surrounding the basket, which made for a challenge, but is probably not normally part of the course!
Other Thoughts: The course is located on an outer corner of campus surrounding the student rec. center. Everyone here kept to themselves and barely seemed to notice we were from out of state playing disc golf. We had the course to ourselves.

It is quite possible that this course used to only have 9 holes and 9 more came later, as there is a stretch in the middle that seem forced, but the last few holes were really good.

This is a nice course if you happened to go to college here, but definitely not a championship caliber course. I would not recommend going out of your way to play here, especially since Birmingham has a couple of really nice courses.
