Disc golf course at SCC open to public
A new disc golf course has been constructed in Franklin, though many of the residents may have not realized it yet. Just behind the Southwestern Community College (SCC) building on the Macon County campus where the old Siler farm once operated, lies the new addition to the town.
Disc golf is a quickly growing sport and according to Noa Sparks, designer of the new course, there are around 1,000 courses around the country. Like it sounds, disc golf is similar to “ball” golf. The main difference being the substitution of a frisbee or a “disc,” for a golf ball.
