A love for golf pulses through the veins of the Mims family, owners of Sunset Golf Club. In the age when the jeep was invented, Mount Rushmore received its finishing touches, and the first paper airplane flew into outer space, C.B. Mims's professional golf career was blazing a trail through such PGA tournaments as the 1941 U.S. Open. While her brother slammed tee shots with the fellas, Bettye Mims Danoff, a touring professional, set out to create a brand-new league for the opposite sex, and in 1950, became 1 of the 11 founding members of the LPGA. Their passion for golf and C.B.'s passion for architecting playing grounds led to the birth of Sunset Golf Club.
Greens management and club selection eventually infused in the Mims DNA, filtering through two subsequent generations that continue to own and operate the nine-hole course to this day. Fifty years of course management saturated with passed down know-how gifts the clan with comprehensive golfing knowledge used to maintain 3,350 yards of bunkers, water hazards, and bermuda-grass greens.
