"A beautiful course and a good test of golf. The greens have suffered from all the storms but are still okay. I wish they had rolled the greens after spiking the greens, but with the small spikes it was okay, just a bit let down from previous years. My only complaint was the fact that the clubhouse added a 4th player to our threesome and told me "We're booked up solid today". It was not the truth because nobody was behind us for at least 45 minutes. He was just helping someone get out but I saw twosomes playing. If he was truthful, I would not have complained but it was obviously not the truth."

"Contrary to many of the reviews regarding the Barefoot Courses they were all in magnificent shape. The Love was the 2nd best kept of the three resort courses just behind Fazio. Bunkers had sharp edges and were a perfect consistency, fairways were like carpet and the greens were smooth and fast. They had just top-dressed a few days before but the sand had settled so that you could barely see it. If anything the fine layer of sand made the greens roll a little faster. Lots of memorable holes. Definitely check craigslist/Ebay for a "Unaccompanied Member/Guest Pass". You can play for 1/3 the retail price."

"I've played here (and at all of the other Barefoot courses) almost every year over the last 8 years or so...and generally it's amazing. Fantastic course design and layout. Always in great shape...tee boxes, fairways and greens are immaculate. Even the breakfast is awesome, whether it's the buffet or you just eat at the bar or take it with you on the course...so good.My one and only complaint is that they overbook - on Wednesdays in particular because of the reduced greens fees. It was so overbooked, in fact, that the cart staff and starter insisted on pairing our threesome with a single - on one of our carts!! I'm sorry, but I've been playing golf in Myrtle Beach and everywhere else in this country for 35 years and that's just totally unacceptable. I've played hundreds of rounds and this is only the third time that's happened. Either get more carts or stop booking so many people on your course that you have to resort to this absurdity!! A truly less than pleasant aspect to an otherwise fantastic round.Yes, it's a great course - the front 9 is especially fun to play, but be warned -- if you come here on a Wednesday as anything other than a foursome, be prepared to get stuck playing with someone else."

"I have played this course many times and it is usually in very good to excellent condition. That was not the case for the round today. Not all but a lot of the greens are in poor condition. Very disappointing since the greens were replaced a few years back and they were always very nice since the Champion Bermuda was put in. From what I saw today they have some serious green issues for a higher end priced golf course in NMB. I can't recommend the course."

"Wonderful shape and design. The striping of the rye grass was beautiful and golf course condition as close to perfect as one could expect in December. My favorite design of the 4 Barefoot courses."

"Having played the Dye and Fazio courses on previous trips I would rate the Love course right up there with them. Wide landing areas reward good tee shots while the approach shots need to be on target as the greens are protected with bunkers or water or both. The entire course was in magnificent condition and the weather just enhanced the experience. The staff in the pro shop were very welcoming and the clubhouse adds to the aura of the Barefoot experience. The only downside to the day was the starter - he just gave us scorecards and pointed to us as to where to go for the first tee. He wasn't interested in giving us any info and instead was more interested in the large group behind us as he obviously sniffed a higher tip!!! Apart from this we had a very enjoyable day!"

"We really looked forward playing the course because of all the positive reviews we read. When arriving there our first impression was that it's a typical resort course since we felt being a little rushed. The course layout is ok but nothing compared to e.g. the Legends courses, Wild Wing Avocet, TPC, Long Bay or Rivers Edge. The fairways were of good quality as well as the tee-boxes. However, the greens were in bad shape with many spots w/o grass. I would recommend to play that course since there's way better ones in the area for a better deal."

"We stay at the Barefoot condos so it is appropriate that we play one of their courses. Took advantage of the Wednesday discount rate. Disappointed in the conditions this year. A lot of "green paint" on the fairways. Is this a way to reduce maintenance costs? Will have to reconsider next year if this continues."
