About National Golf Management
National Golf Management was formed in February 2012 with the merger of Burroughs and Chapin Golf Management (B&C) and Myrtle Beach National Company (MBN), making the new company one of the 15 largest golf course management companies in the United States. It is far and away the largest management company on the Grand Strand and one of the leading golf course companies in the Southeast. The merger brought together a total of 22 Myrtle Beach area golf courses.
Burroughs and Chapin Golf Management was formed in 1999, and its list of courses includes Myrtle Beach's oldest course, Pine Lakes Country Club - the Myrtle Beach area's first course (circa 1927). But the history of the company's other interests, including real estate in and around Myrtle Beach, dates back more than 100 years. The lineage of the company is traced to F.G. Burroughs and Simeon B. Chapin.
Myrtle Beach National Company was formed in 1971 with the construction of the Arnold Palmer-designed 54-hole golf complex, which includes the West Course, SouthCreek and King's North. Other courses of distinction include Long Bay Club, Pawleys Plantation and Willbrook Plantation.
