Litchfield Country Club
Pawleys Island’s first golf course, Litchfield Country Club opened in 1966, paving the way for the area’s emergence as one of the game’s most popular travel destinations, but the Willard Byrd design’s popularity extends far beyond its longevity.
The traditional layout is appealing to men and women and players of all skill levels. Playing less than 6,700 yards from the tips, the course features eight significant doglegs, a design feature that doesn’t allow long hitters to mindlessly swing away with the driver. Instead, Litchfield, a semi-private club, challenges golfers to think about positioning as they approach the course’s putting surfaces. The greens at Litchfield are small by modern standards, but largely open in the front, allowing players to attack pins in a variety of ways.
More than one brand of golf can thrive at Litchfield, and that’s at the heart of the course’s popularity with both men, women and seniors. Combine the creativity the layout encourages with a commitment to treating everyone like a member, and it’s easy to see why Litchfield has long been one of the Myrtle Beach area’s most popular tee times.
