Litchfield Country Club a Product of Golf’s Golden Era


Character…nostalgia…tradition…timeless appeal…It’s not often these feelings all come together at one place. But Litchfield Country Club is a special place that time continues to define. A product of golf’s golden era including Arnie’s Army, the Golden Bear and the Black Knight, Litchfield Country Club opened in 1966 and has gracefully matured in time with signature, low-country character here on the Grand Strand. While the game has become longer, this William Byrd design remains a challenge for the longer players as doglegs are adequately protected from the long game with established trees and strategically placed bunkers. Straight ball hitters will have an advantage here at this par 72 as finding the fairway will lend manageable approach shots into these smaller, simple greens. Much like the game from decades ago, players will find it beneficial to utilize the ‘ground game’ around the greens and roll the ball up to score well should they get out of position. With minimal slope on the greens, these greens aren’t overly complicated and roll true for holing putts. Draped by century-old oaks, the plantation clubhouse is a classic setting for leisurely afternoons under the shade enjoying a rocking chair and sharing tales from the day’s round. As the oldest of the 12 Waccamaw Golf Trail courses, Litchfield Country Club remains a memorable, enjoyable golf experience in the heart of South Carolina’s low country. Take a trip back in time to come experience this timeless classic just 20 minutes south of Myrtle Beach at Litchfield Country Club… in Pawley’s Island, South Carolina.
