The Llanerch Country Club is a private club in Haverford Township, Delaware County, Pennsylvania, USA (postal address Havertown, Pennsylvania). In addition to an 18-hole regulation-length golf course, the club grounds also house seven outdoor tennis courts, a swimming pool, and a clubhouse with dining facilities.[1]

The Llanerch Country Club has been operating under its present name since 1919 and under other names since 1901.[2] It has hosted numerous championships, including the first PGA Championship to be conducted in its modern stroke play format, won by Dow Finsterwald in 1958. World Golf Hall of Fame member Denny Shute was the head pro there from 1933 until 1936 when he resigned to become a full-time touring pro.

Llanerch Country Club is a private club, but allows public outings, weddings, conferences, and other events.
