In 1937, local entrepreneurs built a small clubhouse located near Crabtree Swamp in the Conway Township of South Carolina. The building was erected for Conwayites to use for business meetings and social gatherings. During that time, a Board of Directors was created and shareholders began to invest as the word spread of building a local golf course.
In the early 1950’s, a 60-acre tract of land containing an airfield was acquired from the Burroughs & Collins Company with the vision of a 9-hole golf course. A few years later, the resident golf professional and course architect, James M. “Jimmy” Self Jr., completed the layout of the present day golf course. Conway Country Club (1952) is the third oldest golf course on the Grand Strand, listed only after The Dunes Club (1948) and Pine Lakes Country Club (1927).
The 9-hole layout at Conway Country Club provides two different sets of tee boxes to allow for 18-holes of golf. Reaching just 6,000 yards from the back tees, this golf course presents a challenge to even the most skilled players with tight fairways and undulated greens. The Par 3 fifth-hole is our signature hole playing 172 yards to a postage stamp green protected by water on three sides. The Par 5 sixth-hole is where old biplanes used to take off and land on the airfield.
