Commissioners Presented with Idea for Disc Golf

A local disc golf promoter speaks to the Rabun County Commissioners about installing an eighteen hole disc golf course.

During the Board of Commissioners meeting earlier this week, Adam Wright talked about the advantages of putting a disc golf course on the grounds of the Rabun County Golf Club.

“Not only can it bring revenue to the golf course by giving a place for players in this area to go play 18 holes, you can run events that could help the community as a whole with hotel stays, restaurants, and the things that tourists do.”

Wright says that for a one time fee of between eight and eighteen thousand dollars, the county could significantly increase the revenue brought in by the Rabun County Golf club.

According to Wright, conservative estimates project the course would have twenty five disc golf rounds played per week.
