Colonial Charters has reopened earlier than expected this week. And Founders Club is suppose to reopen at mid-to late August according a spokesperson of the company: https://www.myrtlebeachonline.com/sports/golf/article244593102.html

FGI is doing the right thing during this time of coronavirus.

Don’t really mind about Colonial Charters, but glad about Founders Club for those who can go in the Myrtle Beach area and make the most of it!

It makes sense what is happening at Col Charters, to keep the course 
open for budget locals golf.  FGI is probably sorry they bought it, so
happy to help sell it to a golf business. 
 
It made sense to mothball some less busy/popular courses, when golf trips 
were cancelled due to CV.    Founders is a decent course for the price, as long 
as the conditions are good.  It also has some interesting holes.   
It hasn't been popular due to things like waste areas, road crossings, 
some tightness, some blind shots.    Maybe they need to soften some of the
holes, grass in some waste areas, use real cart paths, etc, but it's probably
not worth spending the $ there.

Founder's reminds me more of a Pinehurst or Sandhills of NC course.  When it is in good shape it is a good place to play. Tough course as well. I also think it hurts because it is pretty far south and it is surrounded by some heavy weights like Caledonia, Pawleys, True Blue, Heritage, TPC, etc. There are not many duds on the south end so, it has some things going against it. I enjoy playing there though.

I tend to agree with you Denis. Colonial Charters is away of my radar.

Colonial Charters is a mishmash of a golf course. Actually has a couple good holes on it but not worth playing if any other course is available. Takes a very long time to get to the 10th tee.

Golf is just an excuse to drink whiskey and smoke cigars
