About the Course
Opened in 2008, the Founders Club at Pawleys Island was created by Thomas Walker, former lead designer for Gary Player Design. Walker has transformed the former Sea Gull Golf Club into a magnificent new Lowcountry layout with 18 masterfully designed holes that are visually stunning, giving the illusion that it is harder than it really plays. Walkers team took advantage of the natural gold-and-orange sands to serve as transition areas, and moved over 250,000 cubic yards of dirt – a good amount being on the flatter front side to make it resemble the more rolling back nine. The fairways are Emerald Bermuda grass and the greens are 419 Bermuda.
