"Booked this at last minute. Doubt I'd play again. The GPS in cart never seemed to match what scorecard showed should have been. Not sure which was supposed be right. Just used my own and didn't pay attention to it after a few holes. Greens were fast which is fine but they also seemed torn up. Just not in good shape. Overall course not bad but can play much nicer for less."

"Course is in great shape tee to green. A few fairways were wet and not cut but all others were perfect. Overseeded fairways, tees, and greens has the course looking great. Waterway holes especially #10 very mermorable."

"Played Barefoot-Love in March and was disappointed. A little disappointed in Norman this week although better than the painted greens/fairways at Love in March. GPS in carts are a nice touch and it's the best layout of all the Barefoot courses. Putting green was closed as it must be under construction. More like a country club atmosphere with the staff etc. Complimentary shoe shine a nice perk."

"I agree with the previous review...Barefoot has ruined the 18th Hole on the Norman Course....What Was a great finishing Par 5 was ruined and is now a dull Par 4. SHAME on Barefoot for destroying the original Greg Norman Layout...It's a loss"

"I've now played all of the Barefoot courses and although the Norman course is good, I would say it ranks number four for me. Layout was OK, as there were some really nice holes, but also some very forgettable ones. Some of the holes on the Intracoastal waterway had great potential but didn't seem to take full advantage of the location. The course wasn't particularly difficult, but could jump up and bite you if you lost focus. My biggest disappointment was the 18th hole, which was obviously designed as a par 5 or long par 4, but the original tee boxes seemed to be abandoned in favor of shorter ones, taking much of the drama away. Overall I was satisfied for the $55 afternoon rate, but it's not on my short list. I certainly wouldn't pay the $110 rack rate for it. Greens had not yet been punched so that was a big reason we chose this one."

"Nice course and clubhouse. We had 3 20-plus handicappers course was a little tight at times. It helped a lot to have GPS yardage on the course. Still had a great time."

"The staff was nice and helpful but the course was not all I was expecting. Almost the whole course is lined with condos and not very visually pleasing. A couple holes near the Intracoastal were away from the condos but not many. As for the course, the fairways were painted and very thin. Not in good shape. Greens were only okay but nothing special. The layout is not exciting at all. The Fazio and Love courses are much better. I would choose this last of the Barefoot courses."

"The whole complex at Barefoot Landing was excellent. Our only problem on the day was that it was cart path only, because of the rain a couple days before. We just had to deal with it. Otherwise the course was great."
