Video: Founders Club Offers A Dramatic, But Accommodating Round Of Golf


The Pawleys Island area of South Carolina is known for its low country charm, salty marshland, Southern hospitality and year-round seasonal weather to enjoy the great outdoors. And the Founders Club at Pawleys Island continues to be a part of the area's charm, with history dating back to 1966, as the fourth oldest golf course in the Myrtle Beach area. As with most classics, Founders Club at Pawleys continues to evolve with time, including a recent renovation by Thomas Walker. This work restored the natural sandy areas throughout the course, common to this coastal region, to create beautifully framed visuals set amongst tall longleaf pines and sprawling old oak trees. Subtle mounding and the natural topography creates stunning shadowing throughout the course, especially early mornings and late afternoons. This unique topography is perhaps best showcased on the 14th and 15th holes. The dogleg right 14th climbs from the fairway up to the elevated green, protected by surrounding sandy waste area around this narrow green. The 15th is challenged by this long encroaching finger bunker that longer players may attempt to carry for a shorter approach to the small green. These sandy waste areas draw comparisons to the recent restoration of historic Pinehurst No. 2 that received such acclaim from the recent 2014 United States Open Championship. Named the 2011 Golf Course of the Year by the Myrtle Beach Golf Course Owners Association, the Founders Club at Pawleys Island provides an enjoyable coastal-feel playing experience. Come experience this memorable round of golf at Founders Club at Pawleys Island, a Founders Group International member course, just a short drive south of Myrtle Beach in Pawleys Island, South Carolina.
