Steeped in tradition and history, this 18-hole layout was created in the early 1960s and is among the oldest courses on the Grand Strand's Hammock Coast. More than 50 years later, Litchfield Country Club was recently voted "2016 Golf Course of the Year" by the Myrtle Beach Area Golf Course Owners Association. This prestigious accolade is bestowed based on considerations for design, condition and service, both to customers and to the community.
Litchfield Country Club sits on the former site of one of the region's largest 18th Century rice plantations. Freshwater lakes and a stately plantation-style clubhouse surrounded by giant live oaks dating back to the 18th century provide a magnificent backdrop for this traditional layout, Handcrafted by Willard Byrd, the par-72 Litchfield County Club's traditional design stretches to 6,752 yards, but narrow fairways, sharp doglegs, and strategically constructed green complexes place a premium on accuracy over distance.
Litchfield still maintains a private membership, so tee times are limited and highly coveted. It is a Willard Byrd design that just keeps getting better with age.
Accolades of today include 4.5 stars in Golf Digest’s “Best Places to Play In America”.
