Seven holes along the Intracoastal Waterway highlight Greg Norman's design...

Seven holes along the Intracoastal Waterway highlight Greg Norman's design at Barefoot Resort framed by the site's original vegetation, each hole enhances the beauty of its natural vistas.Combined with open green complexes and fairways running up to the sand, the Norman course presents a stunning challenge for any golfer.The stunning waste areas and the site's natural vegetation were used to frame each hole. The course resembles one found in the deserts of the Southwest, without the desert. For example, one hole has fairways that flow into the native areas surrounding the course while another hole features fairway and a partial rough transitioning into the native areas. A third distinction is a formal rough that encompasses the entire golf hole. There are no angular or artificial lines in the shape of the course. Bunkers have sloping white faces (similar to a MacKenzie style golf course) with intermittent sod wall bunkering at strategic locations throughout the course.The Norman Course is a Par 72, approximately 7,200 yards long and was designed with Norman's philosophy to bring into play the"bump and run" shots around the greens. This will give the player the option to play a number of different shots.The greens are gently undulating and consist of an average green area of 6,300 square feet. The green surfaces consist of a Champion UltraDwarf Grass. Tees and Fairway consist of GN-1, which is a hybrid turf developed by Greg Norman Turf. The approach areas are Tifdwarf grass.

Norman course was hands down the best placed I've played down here yet. Signature hole #10 is worth every penny to see. Can't bring a cooler on the course, that's no problem they already have one on the cart with ice ready for your beverage. Cart is also equipped with built-in GPS which shows the layout of every hole your... More

Four courses here but the Norman is fairest for the women. None of these are easy courses but why not be challenged???? Love this resort and will be back next year!

for the $125 paid for a "discounted round" it was far inferior to other Myrtle beach courses my husband and I played for less than half that price... tee boxes not that great and nothing of interest. made for a pretty boring round of golf.

Played after heavy rain which made it cart path only. The fairways were soaked and so were our shoes after playing it. Bunkers were mud. I'm sure it's a nice course under better conditions. But of the 4 Barefoot courses, this one offers the least scenery and plays fairly easy compared to the other 3.
