Rating 4.2 Stars

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.

    One of my favorite courses in Myrtle Beach area. As a senior golfer, I really appreciate the different tee boxes offered so I can play one best suited to my skillset. The staff is very friendly and make you feel welcome every time you play.

    Classic design, in very nice shape, greens rolled great. Keeping the ball in play off the tee is key and putting it in the correct spot is important for a shooting a good number so a yardage book is helpful. Great customer service from the moment you arrive. Nice place to play

    Hadn't played Litchfield Country Club in a while, need to be accurate off the tee, from the white tees sometime driver is too much. Greens rolled very good and were true. Very nice staff, energetic and welcoming. Hope to play here again soon

    Nice club and course with a very friendly staff. I was paired with a couple of guys at thhe last minute and enjoyed playing with them. The course is in rough condition right now due to lack of rain for a couple of months.
