Chinese Investors Buy Into US Golf Heartlands

Founders Group International (FGI) has acquired the majority of National Golf Management's assets, giving the company a vested interest in the most visited golf destination in the world.

Formed in 2014 through various purchases and the 2015 acquisition of National Golf Management, FGI owns and operates 22 golf courses in and around Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.

FGI contains a division that undertakes residential and retail development. It has also partnered with one of the largest travel agencies in China to bring golfers, tourists and wedding parties to Myrtle Beach.

FGI’s parent company Yiqian Funding is primarily owned by Chinese investor Dan Liu and Nick Dou an immigration and investment specialist lawyer from New York.

This most recent acquisition makes it one of the largest employers in the area. FGI brings not only new capital to the Myrtle Beach golf market, but also new ideas, enthusiasm and a commitment to the community. Both Liu and Dou are planning to make their permanent homes in the Myrtle Beach area.
