From Founders Collection President Steve Mays’ 4/3/20 Message:

  • To accommodate the one person per cart directive, all Prime Times courses are now operating on a single tee, running from 8:20 a.m. through 2:00 p.m. with groups going out in 10-minute intervals.
  • Tee times after 1 p.m. will be based on cart availability.
  • Additionally, walking is now allowed on all Founders Group courses with guests receiving a $5 discount off the applicable rate.
  • For golf course club members only, the use of personal carts, provided the golfer signs a liability waiver, is being allowed, too. There is no discount for use of a personal cart.
  • Please keep in mind Pine Lakes (must have local id), Grande Dunes (must have local id) and both courses at Myrtlewood ARE OPEN. (UPDATE: Starting May 1st this order will expire and a local ID will no longer be required to play Pine Lakes and Grande Dunes)


Here’s what we are doing to ensure your safety at our facilities:

— Founders Collection Courses have implemented a one cart per person policy 

— Anyone who wishes to walk will receive a $5 discount off their rate and will receive full points on qualifying rounds.

— FGI’s entire staff – inside and outside – are wearing sanitation gloves

— FGI staff will not be handling any golf bags

— Carts are being sanitized right before and immediately following each round

— High-traffic areas and public touch points are being sanitized multiple times per day

— Water coolers have been removed from the course and paper starting tickets have been eliminated

— Players are being encouraged to leave flag sticks in

— Golfers are allowed to walk at courses where it makes sense

On another note– Be on the lookout of take out dining specials at particular clubs

Hopefully the golf course can provide an escape, allowing you to enjoy the game while getting some fresh air and exercise.
