Founders Group International Installs Junior Tees On Seven Golf Courses
MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. — Founders Group International, Myrtle Beach’s largest golf course ownership group, has installed junior tees on seven courses for the popular summer golf season.
The installation of the junior tees complements Myrtle Beach’s “Kids Play Free” program, which allows kids 16 and under to play for free when accompanied by a paying adult. Junior tees are available at Aberdeen Country Club, West Course at Myrtle Beach National, Avocet Course at Wild Wing Plantation, PineHills Course at Myrtlewood, River Club, Litchfield Country Club, and Willbrook Plantation.
“So many kids are introduced to golf during the summer months, and the junior tees will allow them to enjoy the game without being overwhelmed by the length of the course,” said Justin Binke, FGI’s director of marketing. “Summer is family vacation season in Myrtle Beach, but for moms and dads who want to enjoy a morning away from the ocean, the combination of our junior tees and the Kids Play Free program, make the golf course an ideal place to go.”
Aberdeen Country Club is a 27-hole, links-style course. The three nines hug the Waccamaw riverfront preserve with only a minimal number of home sites in view. Rolling hills along the side of the fairways and around the greens add to the beauty of Aberdeen.
PineHills enjoys a near perfect location in the heart of Myrtle Beach and a player-friendly design. The Arthur Hills course is ideal for a family golf outing.
The West Course at Myrtle Beach National is the area’s easiest layout, according to the USGA. Wide fairways and a lack of hazards conspire to make the course a family favorite.
Wild Wing’s Avocet Course is popular with locals and visitors alike, highlighted by generous fairways and the short, par 4 14th hole.
Litchfield is an old-school design that is an ideal place to fall in love with the game. An inviting atmosphere and a layout that allows players of all ability levels to score awaits.
River Club, a Tom Jackson design, has water on 14 of 18 holes. A member of the acclaimed Waccamaw Golf Trail, River Club is a 4.5-star course, according to Golf Digest.
A Dan Maples course, Willbrook oozes lowcountry charm, playing through sprawling live oak trees draped in Spanish moss. The layout was once ranked among America’s “Top 100 Courses for Women” and Willbrook remains one of the area’s hidden gems.
