Litchfield Country Club was the first golf course in the Pawleys Island/Litchfield area and among the initial eight courses built on the Grand Strand. It was developed on what was part of Litchfield Plantation, one of the largest plantations on the Waccamaw Neck. William Byrd’s original design of the golf course, one applicable to the well-rounded, won’t beat up most players and is not a long playing golf course. It opened for play in 1966 and is complimented by its plantation-style clubhouse among giant live oaks that date back to the early 18th Century. The social hub, its clubhouse, is a popular venue for social occasions such as wedding receptions and other private celebrations. Residents of Litchfield Country Club can enjoy easy access to the beach close by and a variety of styled homes in and on the golf course.
