Description

About Barefoot - Fazio

Designed by Tom Fazio, who was voted by Golf Course News as "Golf Course Architect of the Year" five years in a row, the Fazio course at Barefoot Resort is one of the most renowned on the Grand Strand. Fazio brings his design expertise to a rolling parcel of land at the heart of Barefoot Resort, featuring lovely holes that are meticulously manicured and pleasant to play. Off the tees, players will be greeted with stunning visuals and 18 distinct holes. The Fazio Course traverses the natural sand dunes and Lowcountry forest which surrounds Barefoot Resort. The fairways are made up of a mixture of GN-1, a hybrid turf, which evolves into Tif-sport Bermuda grass on the approaches and A-1 bentgrass on the course’s greens.

"We were a bit disappointed that the course wasn't in better overall shape, for being such a high end course. We all expected much more out of the course, but liked the layout, so would play again. One of the attendants told us that winter hit the course hard and it was just now getting into decent shape. Loved the feel of the pro shop, although no course carries enough women's clothing. "

"Over booked, over priced & under maintained!!! 30 minutes late teeing off. The whole course is painted, except for the dormant brown rough, not a single bit of overseeding. Many of the greens had recessed cork covers on the unused pin placements so you could not putt over them, had to move your ball!! As we were finishing up on 18, 5 1/2 hours later, 8 carts drove passed us and had obviously given up and just wanted to leave. This course was on my bucket list but whomever gave it a 4.5* rating should be ashamed! We've played several courses in Myrtle Beach, in the past 3 months, in much better shape for less than half the price. Arrowhead is the best mid priced course by far, every inch is lush and green, easy to get a tee time and worth ever penny. Save your $$ and go elsewhere!!"

"Having played several Fazio courses, I was excited about the chance to play this one. The verdict? Not one of his better efforts. Firstly, WAY too many bunkers, especially the deep fairway traps which have high lips and too much sand in them, making them seem like misplaced greenside bunkers. Secondly, not enough bail-out areas off the tee, especially on the long par-4's. Thirdly: the price! Overall summary: we can find many courses throughout the Grand Strand that are not only a better bargain, but are much more fun to play."

"Played the Fazio course at Barefoot in October 2011 and again in July 2012. It is my favorite of the 4 courses, but in general I love Fazio layouts. Its hard to beat Barefoot with 4 great courses, the best 19th hole around and if you are on a golf trip the condos were real nice (we were on the Norman course)."

"Great layout - will remember all of the holes played. Greens were the best of 5 courses played this year. Overall condition was good / fair but one of the best of 5 played this year - with the cold weather, I would suspect most of the courses are probably a bit late greening up. We will definitely be back to try other 3 courses. Green fees are a little pricey if played on a day other than Wednesday - I don't really see what stands out about the course we played compared to others in the area that are comparable"
