Founders Group International, a Myrtle Beach, S.C.-based golf course ownership group, has overseeded 11 courses with rye grass wall-to-wall, ensuring players 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.
“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.”
