Barefoot - Norman

4980 Barefoot Resort Bridge Road
North Myrtle Beach SC, 29582

Greg Norman's unique design at Barefoot Resort has only 60 acres of mowable grass existing on all 18 holes. Norman uses tactical landscaping and the site's natural vegetation to frame each hole. The course also features several holes along the scenic Intracoastal Waterway. Norman, award-winning designer, is excited about his design, stating We have a fabulous piece of property with great elevations and the developer has spared no expense to ensure that this course is the absolute best it can be. Also ranked in Golf Digest's Places to Play-2004 and was #28 in the Top 50 Courses of Myrtle Beach by Golf Digest. New in 2006, a 30-acre lighted practice facility complete with teaching school, New York-style pizzeria and deli sports bar.

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. Tees and Fairway consist of GN-1, which is a hybrid turf developed by Greg Norman Turf. The approach areas are Tifdwarf grass and greens surfaces consist of A-1 bentgrass.
