Founders Club is located on the quiet, tranquil southern end of the Grand Strand in the town of Pawleys Island. Originally opened in 1969 as Sea Gull Golf Club, the course was completely redesigned by Thomas Walker and reopened in 2008 to rave reviews from locals and visiting golfers alike. Walker maintained the corridors of most of the holes but introduced a thoroughly modern aesthetic and type of shaping, moving more than 250,000 cubic yards of dirt and bringing the course boldly into the 21st century. Walker replaced much of the long rough with sandy waste areas that allow for creative recovery shots by all levels of player, adding more fun to the experience of playing a round at Founders Club. It is the only course on the Grand Strand to use Emerald Bermuda grass on its greens, which are known for being kept in excellent shape year-round.

The course at Founders Club builds to a climax on the back nine. The inward half of the course is stellar, kicked into high gear by the split-fairway par five 12th, where going for the green in two requires an fairway wood shot that must carry a pond to a shallow, elevated green surrounded by bunkers and chipping areas. The 14th through 17th holes sit in an undulating, pine-forested part of the property, bookended by two long par fours where a par is an excellent achievement. The closing hole, a short par four is actually a birdie hole if one can find the fairway off the tee.

Founders Club’s facilities got a major upgrade along with the golf course in 2008. The new plantation-style clubhouse features a wraparound porch, well-appointed pro shop and cozy dining area overlooking the 18th green. The practice putting and chipping green simulates most any short shot or putt one is likely to find on the course and a large driving net is available for warming up before the round.

Founders Club at Pawleys Island boasts a Golf Insider rating of 7.1, with recent reviews highlighting the quality of the staff.

Quick greens but were spotty in places. The layout was a good test and all the waste area is an interesting touch. I liked the golf course. The pro shop was okay but the starter was a plus. He had good knowledge for his short time there. One real need is for better directional movement from tee to green. There needs to be more signage to direct you from the green you just finished to the next tee box. We had to guess where we were going a couple of time and missed 2 tee boxes entirely.

I played the old layout of Sea Gull but first time known as Founders Club. I thought it was a bit overated. I enjoyed it, but looks like the remodel just added a bunch of waist areas. Basicaly the same course now its over $100 instead of $30? Starter/bag guy was incredibly nice and professional, greens were a bit spotty in places. Was a nice experience though. Not a hater on this one, just not perfect.

The course was in terrible shape. the fairways were awful with the only green grass on the t box and the green. not worth 80.00 a man to play on dirt.
