Just read a post about Featured Clubs For the WA and I see some think that this club is qualified. I have not found it fit to play in at least 6 years. I understand that they have to “accept “ this subpar course to get the better courses of that group, but why try to promote something that will not happen. I was beginning to re-think my position about this year but this article just put a halt to that thinking. I have enjoyed this event since 2005. I’m probably going to be down for some of the week and working on a way to see some old friends and make it to the cc. And probably play a couple course not in the rotation. Wishing everyone the best.July 18, 2022 at 1:18 pm #50865Bob NewmanParticipant
Just a follow up—-/my friend in Pawley’s Island asked me to play the Founders Club last week promising men it was in the best shape he had seen it (he even said he would pay for it), so I said YES. To my surprise he was CORRECT. This of the absolute best shape I have seen ít since the renovation of several years back. The fairways were “lush” with grass, no trouble playing it down. The greens were also in great shape even though they have them a little slower in July at most courses. Only saw one bad spot on a green which was on the very back in a low area which receives too much water. I hint do not believe they can mess it up before the WA. I have criticized them for being in bad shape and I also have now praised them for being in great shape.July 19, 2022 at 1:57 pm #50872Rick KimbrellParticipant
Good to know Bob. Both of us have definitely seen it the other way.August 5, 2022 at 1:41 pm #50973David BakerParticipant
I hated Founders Club the first time I played it, awful condition. So when I saw it in my rotation last year I wasn’t very happy. But I must say that after playing it last year it had made on 360 turnaround. The greens were good and the fairways were also nice. So I wouldn’t mind playing it again.
