The Mel Sole Golf School, which is annually named one of GOLF Magazine's Top 25 Golf Schools in the U.S., is returning to the Pawleys Plantation Golf & Country Club on July 1.
Golf Instructor Mel Sole has a long history with Pawleys Plantation. The Mel Sole Golf School opened at Pawleys Plantation in 1991 and successfully operated until 2016. After a short hiatus, we are excited to announce its return.
Positive feedback from students of all ages and skill levels has resulted in Mel Sole Golf School receiving four of TripAdvisor's Certificate of Excellence awards since 2012. The golf school is known for its small class sizes with a maximum of four students per class. Its affordable rates are among the lowest of the Top 25 golf schools in America. Golfers who have attended the golf school testify to seeing serious improvement in their short games and increased distance off the tee. A number of students have also gone on to receive college golf scholarships.
“We are delighted that Mel will be returning the headquarters facility for his national and international schools to Pawleys Plantation,” said Steve Mays, acting president of Founders Group International. “The return of Mel’s widely respected school to one of our premier courses, Pawleys Plantation, is part of Founders Group International's continuing efforts to offer the best golf experiences along the Grand Strand.”
Pawleys Plantation is nestled in a tranquil area on the south end of the Grand Strand. This Jack Nicklaus-designed course boasts 200-year-old oak trees, a picturesque landscape, and manageable challenges for golfers of any level.
“Golf is my passion and I'm grateful to be able to teach at such a prestigious course,” said Mel Sole, founder of Mel Sole Golf School. “Along with having a championship golf course for golfers to practice on, the Pawleys Plantation training facility has everything we need to provide the best service.”
Mel Sole has taught many notable golfers, including Jim Valvano, ESPN commentator John Saunders, an Olympic Golf Medalist (from Germany), and World Champion Billiard Player and Hall-of-Famer Ewa Mataya Laurance.
