Designed by Carolina native and PGA touring golf professional Davis Love III, this North Myrtle Beach golf course at Barefoot Resort comes with a very special touch. This traditional par 72, 18 hole golf course exudes low country character and feel and to remind one of local history, Love has included “recreated ruins” of an old southern plantation home along holes 3 through 7. This golf course is visually striking and offers a round of golf you will not soon forget.
Tee boxes and lush wide open GN-1 fairways (a hybrid turf developed by Greg Norman Turf) offer generous landing areas and good lies while the approach areas consist of Tif-Sport Bermuda grass, all setting up inviting Champion UltraDwarf Bermuda that await your approach shot on this immaculate North Myrtle Beach layout.
To whet your appetite, we take a look at the fourth hole, a big hitters dream; this is a short risk / reward par four, weighing in at 294 yards off the platinum tees. The green is elevated and well bunkered, front, left and right and it is surrounded by “replica ruins”. Don’t get too cute, as any wayward shot whether off the tee or from the fairway will be justly punished, only a small taste of what this charming North Myrtle Beach golf course has to offer.
There are five sets of tee to choose from with the Platinum tees measuring 7047 yards, the Black tees measuring 6542 yards, the White tees measuring 6055 yards Green tees measure 5643 yards and the Gold tees measuring 5336 yards respectively.
Love has created a fair and challenging test of golf for the good player and yet at the same time, a playable and very enjoyable golf course for the average player.
The Love course at Barefoot Resort has the distinction of being ranked #1 among the “Top 50 courses in Myrtle Beach” by Golf Digest.
