Eleven Of Myrtle Beach’s Premier Courses Go Wall-to-Wall Green In 2020

4 Feb, 2019

Founders Group International, Myrtle Beach’s leading golf course ownership group, has overseeded 11 courses wall-to-wall, ensuring players will enjoy lush green grass throughout the winter and the area’s ever-popular spring season.

FGI overseeded tee boxes, fairways, rough and greens at TPC Myrtle Beach, Long Bay Club, World Tour, King’s North at Myrtle Beach National, the Palmetto and PineHills courses at Myrtlewood, Wing Wing Avocet, Tradition Club, River Club, Willbrook Plantation and Pawleys Plantation.

The ryegrass overseed has already taken root, and the 11 layouts are in pristine condition, featuring vibrant, striped fairways and turf conditions that are as good as they are at any point in the year.

“A lush, green course is part of the game’s appeal, particularly during the winter and spring months when golfers flock to Myrtle Beach to escape the dreary conditions in the Northeast and Midwest,” said Justin Binke, FGI’s director of sales and marketing. “Overseeding tees and fairways is common practice for all Myrtle Beach golf courses, but we wanted to take the next step and go wall-to-wall. We believe the decision will enhance the golfer experience, which is our primary goal.”

TPC Myrtle Beach has overseeded the last four years to ensure the layout was in peak condition to host the Dustin Johnson World Junior Golf Championship, and the reception made FGI’s decision to expand its overseeding plans much easier. TPC Myrtle Beach has enjoyed rave reviews and golfers have flocked to the course.

Myrtle Beach enjoys good golf weather throughout the year, but the Bermudagrass goes dormant when the summer heat recedes. The dormant grass continues to provide quality conditions but golfers covet green grass.
