Founders Club at Pawleys Island

Founders Club at Pawleys Island

Founders Club offers players a challenging shotmaker’s 18-hole experience on the south end of Myrtle Beach in Pawleys Island, the U.S.'s earliest beach resort.


Thomas Walker, a former lead designer for Gary Player Design, completely renovated and modernized this fourth oldest Myrtle Beach golf course originally designed by Gene Hamm. The seven million dollar project included course redesign and included a new Lowcountry-style clubhouse. A flat landscape, which was once part of the original golf course, has been replaced by elevation changes, bunkers, and sloping fairways. Strategy is the name of the game at Founders Club - this course is designed for the thinking golfer.


Founders Club is known as an “ocean-style golf course” with natural beach sand filling the waste areas and native grasses populating the layout. One unique feature of this golf course is that golfers are not restricted to cart path and, instead, “ride the dunes”!


Welcoming lounges for women and men and a well-stocked pro shop round out the Founders Club golf experience.

Tee boxes and fairways in excellent condition. Waste type sand on every hole which serve as cart path as well. The greens were in immaculate condition and rolled extremely well. The cart attendant and starter were very nice. We saw a nice looking alligator on 7 edge of pond and plenty of turtles and birds. Looking forward to my next round at the Founders Club as itand039s all about shot placement on this course.

Nice course and staff. There were considerable rain storms the day before and the course was in need of attention, but I would definitely play there again.

Only downside was the replay rate we were given was the same full rate on the website. Expected a discount for a replay. We paid 29 for a 9 hole replay, the exact same rate anybody could get on the website. Asked the attendant and he said we were getting a andquotbig discount over regular rate for the replayandquot. Whatever. Greens were great, a little slow but very consistent. Lady working the grill was very nice.
