Course Review and Comments
The facilities were beautiful and the staff were great. They gave us rec's for where to play next. My complaint lies in the design of the course. Trying to compete with some gorgeous courses on the grandstand, it seems as they went for aesthetics over playability. The cart path is a waste bunker about 15 yards wide on each side of the fairway. I didn't play great golf here, but missing fairways and landing in waste bunkers leaves you frustrated all day. The greens were very hard and some were stained by poor irrigation. I brought an 8 Iron on one Par 3 and it one-hopped off as if hitting rock. Again, my game may not have been a fair indication of the course, but I found the design to be more 'pretty' than it was fair. Very difficult track for a high handicap golfer.

I loved the beauty of the course. This course challenges the golfer to be a course manager of his/her game and learn to be a good ball striker. That should be a goal for all of us!

I've not experienced harder greens on the Grand Strand. I am also not a fan of the defined, outlined fairways. As I play in the area frequently, I will play it again I am sure, but, it would not be

I can't believe some of these reviews. I have played some of the highest ranking courses on the Grand Strand and we had a great time at Founders Club. Great greens they were very receptive and putted

Where to begin...
The course layout is terrible. You cross a public road 14 times including a very dangerous trek from #3 to #4. The greens are very hard and will not hold a shot. They do roll t

One of the worst designs I have ever set foot on. The back nine is one of the worst streches of holes I have ever seen. Not one good hole among them. The greens were like concrete, won't even hold a s
