Upcoming Grande Dunes Golf Performance Center Fittings

Golf Cart Change Effective 9-7-20

We will ask you to ride with your playing partner for morning tee times at most of our courses. We know many of you are already doing this, but for those who are not comfortable riding together, we will offer you options.    

At TPC Myrtle Beach and Grande Dunes you will be expected to ride together, but FGI’s 19 other courses will offer the following choices if you prefer to ride alone:

  • You may play in the afternoon at most FGI courses and we will be able to accommodate your request for a single cart. (This is not valid at Grande Dunes and TPC.)
  • Morning: On days there are extra carts available due to low volume of play, we will allow golfers to ride alone in the morning. (Please note that this will be based entirely on availability and a first come, first serve basis.)
  • Wild Wing, Aberdeen, and Founders Golf Club you may ride individually all day. All three will offer that option at least through September 30th
  • Walking is always available at FGI properties at $5.00 off the applicable rate.
  • We will have masks available in the golf shop for golfers who would like to wear them in the golf cart.
