History & Culture
In October of 1988, a group of 46 individuals from Howard County, who shared a common interest in golf, formed what is now known as Cattail Creek Country Club, Inc. Their goal was to acquire, develop, and enjoy a member-owned golf and country club.
Willard Byrd of Atlanta, GA, who had previously designed over 100 courses, was chosen to be the course architect. Byrd was also to assist in the selection of the Course site and the design the facility. After an extensive search, the group purchased the 168-acre Cattail site in 1990. The land was chosen primarily for its rolling rural topography and extensive water resources. In September 1991, the Club, with the support of 130 initial Members, commenced construction of the Golf Course with contractors from Myrtle Beach, SC.The Course opened for play the first week of July, 1993, under the leadership of Kevin Pryseski, Golf Course Superintendent, and the voluntary efforts of many of the early Members.
The actual 'Cattail Creek' runs in front of 12 tees and exits south past the green on #12.
