Evacuation orders have been lifted following Hurricane Florence. However, there is a lot of flooding on roads leading into and out of the area making driving hazardous. Travelers on the roads are encouraged to exercise extreme caution and check SCDOT.org or call 511 for the latest information. Be patient and expect lengthy travel times, blocked roadways or detours.
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.
