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.

    Course was great. Didn't like the way they sent out 5 carts to Tee1 and 4 carts out to Tee10 and then had to wait in line all day. Whats the purpose of Tee times if you stack them up like that to begin the day.

    Greens were only so-so, but because of maintenance, the fringes were poor. Otherwise, very good overall rating

    Litchfield CC is one of my favorites. The staff is great. The course is pretty wide open off the tee and you can recover from a poor shot. Always an enjoyable course to play on the South End.
