Founders Club at Pawleys Island

  • 7829 Ocean Highway
  • Pawleys Island, SC 29585
  • Location: Pawleys Island
The newest course on the Myrtle Beach Golf scene, Founders Club quickly carved out its niche on the South Strand. Architect Thomas Walker crafted a completely new layout that has been met with applause. Walker used elevated fairways and waste bunkers that run from tee to green in order to create contrast that appeals to the eye. The bunkers do more than serve as a method of framing the fairways and punishing golfers who hit wayward drives, however. The bunkers double as cart paths – the only pavement on the course surrounds the tees and greens – and combined with the elevated fairways, help provide Founders Club with excellent drainage. The result is carts riding the fairways 365 days per year.
