With nearly 40 years of experience in golf course design, and 29 golf courses to his name across the United States, Thomas Walker is well-known in golf circles as a premier designer of golf courses. After serving for six years as the Vice President of Gary Player Design Company, in which he designed six courses, Walker also increased his experience by managing construction as well to get the full hands on idea of golf architecture.
Walker has summed up his golf course design philosophy as ""Every course we design has to be the best. We strive to provide the most enjoyable golfing experience through excellent and exciting design. "We work passionately to improve on the design during the construction process and we are committed to manage each client's risk and surpass even our own goals."
One course that has the honor of his name on it is the Founders Club at Pawleys Island in Myrtle Beach, which is a world-class golf course that opened in 2008, and was built on the same land as the Sea Gull golf course, which had shut down in 2005. Even though this is a relatively new course to the Myrtle Beach area, it has the distinction of being one of the most accommodating Myrtle beach golf courses that uses a visually dramatic style throughout. It is a course that truly gives golfers something to remember. A par 72, it has 18 uniquely designed holes that measure a total of 7,200 yards.
With his love of golf and his commitment to creating a golf course design that is fun and exciting for golfers, Thomas Walker is becoming one of the leading golf course architects of the new century. Working under the tutelage of a golf giant like Gary Player has helped Walker to create a niche for himself by creating golf courses like the Founders Club at Pawleys Island, which blends fun, strategy and enjoyment into the golf course to make it something every golfer that plays there will remember for a very long time. If you are going to golf in Myrtle Beach, Thomas Walker's Founders Club is one of the courses you need to check out, without a doubt.
