Overview

One of the oldest courses on the Southern Strand, this club offers large greens, and no parallel holes; two characteristics that tend to be absent from many of the modern courses at Myrtle Beach.

Brought 16 people to the club and they did not have the promised pin markers available. We've played here before and after each play our members feel that the course is poorly designed. Good shots are punished by either running through the fairway or into...More

This was our second round of the day in March 2018. I found the course to be a very interesting/fun layout, the greens were in great shape and the waste areas added to the challenge. Took awhile to master the art of hitting out of/off...More

PROS: ...It's a really nice use of resources to have limited rough and maximum natural areas. ...It's a great par 3 design (and others), where the shorter the tees, the easier the play (this really helped my game). ...#10 is a great risk/reward hole, do...More

I will say that after a couple of big downpours we were still able to ride the fairways which was definitely a plus. But.... the fairways cant toward the waste areas. There are several holes where you have no idea where to hit the ball....More

Lots of waste bunkers but the course was in pretty good shape. Nice layout. Challenging enough, will be back.

After an overnight rain, this was one of 2 courses on the Strand that were not on the cart paths. Call ahead about the cart rules for the day, but most times you can ride the fairways at this course. An exceptional layout with fast...More

Played the Founders Club with friends as part of a golf package. It was in nice condition and fun to play. Nothing special, but above average. Would play it again.

From the time we arrived the staff were very accommodating and friendly. The course was in excellent shape with true rolling greens. Multiple tee boxes to fit your game. Ample fairways on most holes and trouble is avoidable. Going back on my next trip!
