he Country Club of Darien is located in the Long Island Sound shoreline town of Darien, Connecticut, approximately 45 miles north of New York City. The Al Tull design golf course was opened with nine holes in 1957, and full eighteen holes opened in the spring of 1958. While true to its original structure, the current course was virtually re-built and modernized during a three year project ending in early 2010 by renowned golf course architect, Dr. Michael Hurdzan. His work at The Country Club of Darien was given the Renovation of the Year Award (for a renovation of over $4 million) in 2010 by Golf Inc. magazine and is now acknowledged as one of the finest courses in the country. Dr. Hurdzan received the prestigious Old Tom Morris Award at 2013 Golf Course Superintendents Association of America show, its highest honor.

The course sits on 135 acres of beautiful land, formerly named Keewaydin, from Longfellow’s “The Song of Hiawatha,” and was owned by the Auchincloss family, who started the Club. The family sold the Club to the Members in 1986, and now has 350 Golf Member families, which a total membership of over 600 families. The Club celebrated its fiftieth anniversary in 2008.

The Club boasts the finest golf practice facilities of any Club in Fairfield County. Our practice area has a large, grass range with twenty-six hitting stations, a small range of 120 yards, a putting green and two chipping greens. Greenside bunker and fairway bunker practice areas are a part of the practice facilities. In addition, the indoor Golf Performance Studio was opened in the winter of 2014 to provide year round hitting facilities, golf lessons and swing analysis. The area contains a high definition camera system connected to the latest V1 Motion Software and Flightscope Launch Monitor in order to collect data to offer the player and instructor key information on swing performance.

Head Professional Cory Muller and his staff have a comprehensive program of clinics, lessons and events set up for every age and skill level. The fully stocked Golf Shop carries the latest in equipment, apparel and accessories for the whole family.
