The Dye Club at Barefoot Resort in North Myrtle Beach recently earned a ranking of 8.2 from player/reviewers at Myrtle Beach Golf Insider, earning particular acclaim for the quality of its staff and course conditions.
Pete Dye, the patriarch of the successful golf course-designing Dye family, is responsible for the Dye Club at Barefoot Resort, which, at 7,343 yards from the back tees, is the second-longest golf course on the Grand Strand, behind only the Grande Dunes Resort Club. Opened in 2001, it is a par 72 golf course that sports the standard arrangement of ten par fours, four par fives and four par threes. It boasts recently installed Champion Bermuda greens that tend to be larger and more undulating than most. This means that many holes can play quite differently one day to the next, making the Dye Club an excellent place to play multiple rounds on a trip or even call one’s home course. An excellent example of this is the long par three 15th hole, whose green is some 40 yards from front to back. The hole can potentially play between 205 and 245 yards from the tips.
One unique feature of the Dye Club is that it hosts the annual Hootie and the Blowfish Monday After the Masters Celebrity Pro-Am. The tournament, which benefits a number of charities, takes place every April and brings local and national celebrities as well as PGA and LPGA Tour golfers to the Dye Club. Recent professional golfer participants have included John Daly, Jim Furyk and Tommy “Two Gloves” Gainey, while Hootie and the Blowfish front man Darius Rucker plays host and welcomes celebrity friends like Alice Cooper, John Elway and Bill Murray, to name but a few. The participants and thousands of spectators always enjoy themselves.

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.
We’ve all had those days where the par 5s just seem longer. Maybe it’s the heat, a bit too much fun the night before or you’re just not feeling it. A few of the longer holes on the Grand Strand may leave you feeling that way regardless of your mental or physical state. We call them “The Monsters.”

Ten episodes have brought us to this. Jimmy Brandt vs. Toph Peterson. The winner of the season finale of “Big Break Myrtle Beach” will have the tournament exemption, as well as the cash and prizes totaling six figures. And once again, these two will know they earned it when it mattered most.
Charlie Harrison decided to hold onto his Super Immunity (& a chance at keeping his $10,000 bonus) for one more week, and immediately found it at risk in this week's elimination challenge against Tessa Teachman. Wise move or colossal blunder? Ian Guerin has the details in his Episode 8 recap!
Just two episodes back Carolin Pinegger looked like one of the favorites. Instead, she was eliminated from Tuesday’s “Big Break Myrtle Beach” after what amounted to two poor shots in the final challenge.
