Named as 2013 Golf Course of the Year by both the Myrtle Beach and South Carolina Golf Course Owners Associations, it should come as no surprise that the Dye Club at Barefoot Resort and Golf has carved out a spot as one of the nicest golf courses in the Myrtle Beach area year after year.
The site of Darius Rucker’s annual Monday After the Master’s celebrity pro-am, the Dye Club has something so few others in the Carolinas have: Pete Dye’s architecture.
“He’s one of the only golf course designers in the hall of fame for a reason. The guy just gets it,” Dye Club head professional Jeff Diehl said. “On top of that, the land he built it on, the acreage he built it on, just set up so well for him. How he frames out each hole is distinct. you can play all of his courses and get a feel you’re on a Pete Dye Course. But each hole is distinct in its own right. That’s what impresses me the most.”
As far as impressions go, No. 18 leaves everyone who plays it with a memorable capper. The 471-yard par 4 bends around a left-side pond while banked hills and sand traps line the right. The “monster” hole, as Diehl put it, is classic Dye.

Very wet conditions, needs better drainage. No drink cart due to the conditions with no water on the course

Great shape tee to green. Played 8/22/15. Beautiful layout. Greens rolled true & somewhat fast, not super fast though. Lots of fairway bunkers. Fair but challenging. Will definitely play again.

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.
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.
