Opened in 1966, Litchfield Country Club’s continuing popularity has more than supported its longevity.

The reason is simple: Willard Byrd’s original design, one applicable to the well-rounded, won’t beat up most players. It also isn’t crafted toward the big hitters, measuring at less than 6,800 yards from the back tees. That’s how the golf course opened in the 1960s, and that’s how it remains over 50 years later. The dogleg-happy round includes significant bends on at least eight different holes, forcing players to make the most of their tee and second shots. After that, forgiving approach zones open up the possibility of bump-and-run golf and negating many of the issues associated with small greens.

Hole #18 is featured in the book “The 100 Greatest Holes along the Grand Strand” – published by The Sun News “Narrow fairways, sharp doglegs are part of this classic old style design.” – by Nick Nicholas, Sun News Golf Writer Litchfield Country Club was among the initial eight courses built on the Grand Strand. And it was the first course in the Pawleys Island/Litchfield area.

Awarded 4.5 STARS in Golf Digest’s “2008- Places to Play” and one of the “World’s 50 Best- 1996” by Conde Nast Traveler, the gracious charms of this exclusive country club “Signature Course” are enjoyed by only a limited number of visiting golfers. The mature tree-lined fairways wind amid the giant oaks and shimmering lakes of a former Carolina rice plantation, creating an extraordinarily challenging “country club” golf experience.

For obvious reasons associated with the lack of length, the course has been highly regarded by women and seniors.

    Really nice old-style parkland course. No mandatory carries but many lateral water hazards that cause you to play defensively. Even in the rain the course played great. I would definitely put that in my rota for my next trip to the area.

    If you like old school golf this is the course for you. No tricks, everything is right out in front of you. Tee Boxes, Fairways & Greens are in awesome shape. Outstanding staff starting with the Bag Guys thru the Starters. Was very busy but still finished in 4 hours & 5 Mins.
