Famed architect Pete Dye maintains his reputation of building both memorable and challenging courses with the Dye Course at Barefoot Resort. Home to the annual Hootie & The Blowfish Monday After The Masters Pro-Am, this course is a hit among the PGA Tour pros and celebrities who play it, as well as the common golfer. This visually stunning design is filled with Dye's infamous pitfalls for wary shots. Working with exceptional elevations and an excellent site, this course lives up to the Dye name. Dye's course is one of four Championship Golf Courses built concurrently at North Myrtle Beach's 2,377-acre Barefoot Resort, and is the only one of the four to be semi-private.

"The greens very difficult."
"The greens were aerated recently and it would have been nice to know prior to booking in May or at least before we play there so we could cancel and play some place else. At the very least we should have gotten a discount or money credited to my credit card. I did not think the course was in good enough shape to justify the price we paid."
"Nice course. Good condition and great value if you play on a Wednesday. Definitely worth a visit."
"More like a UK course than US I liked the fact that off the white tees you didn't have to drive the ball huge distances to play the course.I enjoyed the par 3s."
"Favorite holes: 4, 6, 10, 18. Unique: Never have I ever been told to play slower on a golf course. As a 2some is playing behind a 4some, I expect to have a few periods of waiting throughout the day. I do not expect to be told to play slower by a ranger while proper etiquette is being followed. I can't comprehend what inspired the ranger to approach or monitor our ability to stay on pace with the group ahead of us. Especially as a 2 following a 4. Totally unique experience.Great golf course. A fair yet challenging test."
"Exceptionally well-conditioned course - better than Kingsmill's LPGA River Course. Extremely courteous and helpful staff. Typical Dye layout - you are either on a tee box, in the fairway, on a green or in sand."
"Typical Pete Dye design that we enjoyed playing. Tough but fair if played from the correct set of tees based on handicap. Can see how this would not be fun if played from yardage longer than you normally play. Conditions in line with all other of the Barefoot courses we played this week."
"Very wet conditions, needs better drainage. No drink cart due to the conditions with no water on the course"
"Great shape tee to green. Played 8/22/15. Beautiful layout. Greens rolled true & somewhat fast, not super fast though. Lots of fairway bunkers. Fair but challenging. Will definitely play again."
"The course was fabulous. Nothing much to say other than that."
"Play the Dye course for our final round of the week. Out of all the Barefoot courses the Dye course is as close to 10 as possible. Greens were great. Fairways were great. Rough was fair. Sand was played as waste bunkers. Overall a great experience."
"Fun course that demands respect if playing from back tees. Greens were in great shape but pace of play was slow due to high volume."
"Tee markers would have been nice."
"The nicest course that I have ever played on. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Beautiful course in excellent shape from tee to green. It was a very hot day and when we finished, the starter had a cold towel waiting for us. While we cooled down, he cleaned our clubs. Very nice. Would most definitely recommend this course."
"Great in the clubhouse but not very nice starters. Second year in a row for this problem."
"Great course and facility. Great greens, fairways, and layout. 3/3. Will play again on a return trip."
"The flagship Barefoot course. As mid handicappers from the UK we enjoyed the layout with some real challenging pin positions. The Tees were in good condition along with fairways and bunkers / waste areas. The downside without doubt were the greens, they were awful due to the unseasonable cold weather. We wouldn't be happy paying the full green fee for the greens to be in that condition though we stayed at the Yacht club villas which had a great deal on with the Barefoot courses."
"Played Fazio last year, decided to try Dye this year. The course is in rough shape, they said it has been raining quite a bit which is fine but apparently the drainage on this course is non existent. The bunkers (not the waste areas) were 50-60% mud and many areas around them were dead. For a course that is very bunker heavy this makes for a pretty unenjoyable round. I like tough courses but the course can't be both tough and in this shape. I played it on their Wednesday deal which cut the price down to near $100 but for that it's still overpriced. We played World Tour today and while their greens were in tough shape the course was head and shoulders better for $101. The Dye greens were also pretty slow. Coming in from CT (where golf is generally expensive) i can play courses that are in better shape back home (right now.. after the worst winter in 10 years) for $75. The staff was great, no complaints at all. My issue is more a cost to quality issue. Was really looking forward to this course too, had heard great things."
