Description

About Founders Club

One of the newest golf courses on the Grand Strand is also one of the best at the Founders Club at Pawleys Island, where the South Carolina Lowcountry's natural beauty and creative golf design come together to form one unique golf experience. created by Thomas Walker, former lead designer for Gary Player Design, amid the salt marshes and maritime forests of Pawleys Island, the Founders Club features 18 masterfully constructed holes that are both visually stunning and give the illusion that the layout is more difficult than it really plays. But don't think you're not in for a challenge. This course has quickly become a "must play" among the many courses on the Strand.

"You have to keep the ball in play on just about all the holes. One of the more challenging courses we have played down here. Worth it. "

"Course was OK. Had 3 players reserved on-line, but got an unexpected cancellation by one player. Called Founder's to let them know, and they still charged my card for the green fee. Given a rain check. I live in Pa!!!!! Worthless!"

"Great conditions for this time of year. We played at another course a couple days prior and had very wet conditions. Staff was very nice. Would play again. "

"The highlight this golf round was the chicken salad sandwich in the grill room. I played the course before it has a good layout and was usually good shape. This time is more crabgrass than I ever saw of any other course in Myrtle Beach, the teams were beat up green source spotty. If this course does not start to pick up & put some money into it, it will wind up in the basement 10."

"Commented on December 4, 2008: "Wow ... opinions abound on this one. Mine's simple: I played it a few weeks ago, and really enjoyed it. A far different course than the old Sea Gull. Agree with Hugh that 9 would be so much better if the trees on the left were cleared." "

"Commented Nov. 14, 2008: "Just saw that Founders was named one of the country's top new courses at Myrtle Beach Golf Holiday's site. I don't have a national basis of comparison, but I've played it, liked it, and can see why it got such an honor." "

"Played Aug. 29, 2008: "A tremendous upgrade over the old Sea Gull course. They set it well to the natural terrain, and while it looks tough it really plays very fair. My group really enjoyed it." "

"Tough course! Lots of waste bunkers, moguls, and water.... I was placed with a threesome that played an extremely fast pace of play. They were nice guys, but I struggled to keep up with their pace. I ended up rushing shots and putts. The greens were slow, but true. I would like to play the course again, at a slower pace."

"Worst course imaginable from every aspect.. Greens were horrendous. 7 greens were totally destroyed. Others were slower than putting on shag carpeting. This course should pay golfers to play it rather than charge them. "

"Not sure what is going on here. The fairways were dreadful. The greens were a mess. The overall course was not in great shape. I played Grande Dunes the day before paiding less for 10 % the value. I will not go back to this course. Finally, you have to cross over various roads about 20 times during the round. Small carts verus big trucks.. you will loose every time. I do have to say the Pro Shop staff were very friendly. "

"We were the only two golfers on the course for the entire rainy day and loved every minute of it. The course was in great shape and the greens were some of the best I have ever putted. Besides that, the staff could not have been nicer. Definite replay on teh next trip."
