THE COUNTRY CLUB OF DARIEN
A Club For All Seasons
Through the vision and generosity of the Edgar Auchincloss family, the Country Club of Darien was formed. We are committed to providing our members and their guests with a distinctive gathering place for both social events and athletic endeavors.
The Country Club of Darien is the proud host of the 2016 and 2020 Platform Tennis National Championships, the 2019 Westchester Open and 2020 “Ike” MGA Championship
Edgar S. Auchincloss’ vision of turning his family’s 200 plus acre “gentleman’s farm” into a club, became a reality in 1957. Formerly named Keewaydin, from Longfellow’s “The Song of Hiawatha”, the famed Auchincloss family owned the farm starting in 1905 as a vacation retreat. In 1956, Edgar and his widowed mother, Catherine Agnew Auchincloss, transformed the land into the grounds of the Country Club of Darien that we know today.
In addition to the 18 hole golf course, the Club has eight Har-Tru tennis courts, five paddle courts and newly built Paddle Hut, a six-lane pool and gated baby pool, two restaurants in the main Clubhouse, and a fitness center.
Edgar’s generosity lives on, as the Country Club of Darien has truly fulfilled his dream of a “club for all seasons”.
Culture and history with New England charm
Four Seasons of Fun
Connecticut offers four seasons of fun, from summer days kayaking on Long Island Sound to hiking the trails ablaze with the colors of fall – or as some call it, Indian Summer – to cross-country skiing and winter ice fishing, to celebrating spring at one of the many festivals that take place throughout the state. Whether you visit for a week or make it your base for exploring New England, Connecticut is so much more than a single destination. Attractions here are so close, you can easily travel from coastline to countryside in a few hours.
History is alive and well in Connecticut. You’ll find living history everywhere you look!
