Sponsors sought for disc golf course at BCCC

Beaufort County Community College is excited to announce plans to install a new disc golf course on its campus.

The college has a beautiful hundred-acre campus, including woodlands behind the main campus, the layout of which is very conducive to disc golf.

Disc golf has become very popular, with new courses popping up all across the country. There are currently more than 5,700 courses in the United States, and that number is growing on a daily basis. On a recreational level, disc golf has all the fun and challenge of traditional golf, with very minimal expense for individuals to begin playing. Best of all, most courses are free to play. It is a lifelong sport for people of all ages.

Even though the course will be on the BCCC campus, it will be open to the public year-round, as has been the case with the 1-mile walking trail and IMFITT fitness stations. BCCC strives to be an asset to the community, not only providing vocational or academic opportunities, but recreational ones as well.

As the college is not using any public funds for the project, the BCCC Foundation is seeking sponsors for each of the proposed 18 holes. Sponsorships are available for donations of at least $375, but tax-deductible donations of any amount will gladly be accepted.

This is a fantastic opportunity for businesses to reach a variety of participants and to realize increased exposure for their products and services. The college will put the names of sponsoring businesses on the tee signs they sponsor. The sign will be a permanent part of the disc golf course, so this is a great and inexpensive way to maximize exposure for a company or business for years to come.

Anyone interested in becoming a sponsor should contact Serena Sullivan at 252-940-6326 or serena.sullivan@beaufortccc.edu.
