Barefoot Resort - Love Course

A routine “Best You Can Play On the Grand Strand” honoree by the South Carolina Golf Course Ratings Panel and one of Golfweek’s 2015 “Best 100 Resort Courses,” the Barefoot Resort and Golf Love Course has continued to deck out its mantle year after year.

But it’s not the awards or the trophies that set this 2000 design apart. Instead, it’s the level-headed approach it was designed with - not to mention a piece of fictional lore early in the round.

“There are no weak sisters on that golf course,” said Director of Golf Mike Ross before pointing out his course’s biggest conversation starter. “And then the ruins. They’re really unique. We’ll have people who play out here twice in 15 years, but they always mention that part of the course.”

Starting behind the green on on the short par 4 at No. 4, the dilapidated walls visual for four holes lend themselves to plenty of questions about their age. From far away or up close, the brick could pass for the remnants of a centuries-old structure, something many believe to be true. Even though the walls were built for the course’s opening, the visual element is a worthy cause for stories and photos.

A beautiful course and a good test of golf. The greens have suffered from all the storms but are still okay. I wish they had rolled the greens after spiking the greens, but with the small spikes it was okay, just a bit let down from previous years. My only complaint was the fact that the clubhouse added a 4th player to our threesome and told me We're booked up solid today. It was not the truth because nobody was behind us for at least 45 minutes. He was just helping someone get out but I saw twosomes playing. If he was truthful, I would not have complained but it was obviously not the truth.

Very good.

I've played here (and at all of the other Barefoot courses) almost every year over the last 8 years or so...and generally it's amazing. Fantastic course design and layout. Always in great shape...tee boxes, fairways and greens are immaculate. Even the breakfast is awesome, whether it's the buffet or you just eat at the bar or take it with you on the good. My one and only complaint is that they overbook - on Wednesdays in particular because of the reduced greens fees. It was so overbooked, in fact, that the cart staff and starter insisted on pairing our threesome with a single - on one of our carts!! I'm sorry, but I've been playing golf in Myrtle Beach and everywhere else in this country for 35 years and that's just totally unacceptable. I've played hundreds of rounds and this is only the third time that's happened. Either get more carts or stop booking so many people on your course that you have to resort to this absurdity!! A truly less than pleasant aspect to an otherwise fantastic round. Yes, it's a great course - the front 9 is especially fun to play, but be warned -- if you come here on a Wednesday as anything other than a foursome, be prepared to get stuck playing with someone else.

Normally in great shape. Not now the greens are struggling. They had just sanded the greens heavily. Hopefully in a few weeks better. Left after 9 holes
by Mike - 08/12/2016
Greens were in terrible shape. Sand was put down the morning we played. Left after 9 holes.

I have played this course many times and it is usually in very good to excellent condition. That was not the case for the round today. Not all but a lot of the greens are in poor condition. Very disappointing since the greens were replaced a few years back and they were always very nice since the Champion Bermuda was put in. From what I saw today they have some serious green issues for a higher end priced golf course in NMB. I can't recommend the course.
by John M. - 10/27/2015
Having played the Dye and Fazio courses on previous trips I would rate the Love course right up there with them. Wide landing areas reward good tee shots while the approach shots need to be on target as the greens are protected with bunkers or water or both. The entire course was in magnificent condition and the weather just enhanced the experience. The staff in the pro shop were very welcoming and the clubhouse adds to the aura of the Barefoot experience. The only downside to the day was the starter - he just gave us scorecards and pointed to us as to where to go for the first tee. He wasn't interested in giving us any info and instead was more interested in the large group behind us as he obviously sniffed a higher tip!!! Apart from this we had a very enjoyable day!
by Markus - 06/10/2015
We really looked forward playing the course because of all the positive reviews we read. When arriving there our first impression was that it's a typical resort course since we felt being a little rushed. The course layout is ok but nothing compared to e.g. the Legends courses, Wild Wing Avocet, TPC, Long Bay or Rivers Edge. The fairways were of good quality as well as the tee-boxes. However, the greens were in bad shape with many spots w/o grass. I would recommend to play that course since there's way better ones in the area for a better deal.
by Jerry - 04/03/2015
We stay at the Barefoot condos so it is appropriate that we play one of their courses. Took advantage of the Wednesday discount rate. Disappointed in the conditions this year. A lot of green paint on the fairways. Is this a way to reduce maintenance costs? Will have to reconsider next year if this continues.

Thought it would be better.

by Jason - 08/18/2014
Very nice course and very playable. Greens had some work done recently and were very inconsistent in terms of speed. Will try again.

Driving range closed, the putting green terrible,personel lackluster
by Quint (Radford, VA) - 06/02/2014
Love courses that all the holes look different from one another, just a great golf experience, and it helps to shoot 76. :)
by Rick (Pulaski, NY) - 06/02/2014
Excellent golf experience. The hole with the old ruins was amazing and the photo op was worth booking the course. Love's design was both challenging and fair and gave you a good opportunity to make some decisions on what sort of shot to hit. I loved the Love. I will be back to Barefoot for the other 3 courses.
by Alan (Berlin, CT) - 05/27/2014
Wednesday special makes cost more affordable for group.

Much more difficult than slope rating. GPS did not work on either cart in our foursome. Needs yardage book.
by Luc (Lynnfield, MA) - 04/16/2014
Great course. Too bad it was extremely windy.
by Paul (Bethel, CT) - 04/09/2014
by Bob (Succasunna, NJ) - 03/18/2014
One of the nicest courses I've played in my 9 trips to Myrtle Beach.
by Brian (Mc Sherrystown, PA) - 12/02/2013

Best of the Barefoot tracks
by Jim H - 11/05/2013
We have finished and stayed at Barefoot the last few years with extra night free it allows us to play 27 and go back and shower before we begrudgingly leave until next year. We have played all except DYE, but that will be on the list next year! All course are in immaculate condition and greens are fabulous!! One other comment that should be made, please change the longest tees from silver to some other color, when the sun hits them in morning they and white look just the same!!

Will not play again
by John - 07/01/2013
The course was in decent shape except that they lied about the condition after they had top dressed the greens and when asked lied and I booked the round. I was paired up with 3 other players and we played the tips and under the rules of golf. I would have enjoyed the course more from the middle tees. I didn't like the forced carries but the course is very scenic and the staff did an OK job. I would recommend this course but please check about the greens before you play.
by Mark - 05/30/2013
Great course,wide fairways, firm fastgreens
by Paul - 05/14/2013
The Love course is in great shape. I pick a spot on the tee in front of my ball for alignment, these tees are so good it's sometimes hard to find a spot that is imperfect. Really nice course that is fun to play, One of the best on the Grand Strand. I pay more to play here than I usually pay on the strand but it is well worth it. The course and facility delivers.
by Robert (Woodhaven, MI) - 05/14/2013
by Art (Wilmington, DE) - 05/14/2013
The new in 2012 champion greens were firm and fast, even after the rain. The course is fairly traditional with some trees, little water, wide fairways and some Pinehurst ##2 style crowned greens. On many holes, you have alternate options off the tee, to play wide or to challenge hazards/bunkers. The wide side plays longer but often provides a better angle to the undulating greens. With the options off the tee, Love is fun to play. There are fake ruins between holes 4 + 6. The main ruins hole (##4) is drivable, but plays longer than it looks. Don't expect to bounce it on, because it is uphill and the fairway slopes to the bunkers.
by Bruce (Lonetree, CO) - 04/22/2013
Great layout and good condition compared to the Fazio course.
by James (Pomfret Center, CT) - 04/16/2013
Can't wait to come back! What a course, recommend it highly!
by Tony (Martinsville, NJ) - 04/12/2013
by Dee (Severn, MD) - 04/01/2013
Barefoot Landing is always in excellent shape. Fairways and greens were in excellent shape, but the rough was dormant and slick. Stay in the fairway! The bunkers on this course are also strategically placed for your tee shots and are difficult to play out of. Another tough weather day with cold temperatures (mid 40's) and windy (gusts to 30 mph). Hole ##4 has the ruins on it and adds to the experience.
by Leroy (Cedarburg, WI) - 03/25/2013
Great experience, good value for the cost. We will return.
by Raymond (Cedarburg, WI) - 03/25/2013
Best course we played this trip. Will play it again next year
by Pat (Marlboro, NY) - 03/20/2013
Another premium course with dormant rough and chipping grass. Nice layout but I Would never return in the MB off season. Awesome pace of play...we cruised through.
by Glenn - 03/11/2013
Try and play a Barefoot course each time I visit MB and Love was the choice this year. MY favorite for sure. Very windy day made playing conditions difficult but course was in great shape
by Roger (Shohola, PA) - 03/04/2013
Staff was very professional, we were able to really feel what a country club atmosphere is like. magnificent clubhouse. only bad thing was it appeared that the course was overbooked that day. or the groups were not spaced apart enough.. at times we had 3 groups on every hole. sort of wondered where the ranger was and why he wasnt doing his job.. other than that, really enjoyed the course, the layout, and conditions.
by Timothy - 01/31/2013
We played on 1/30/13 and enjoyed everything about this course, except the 20-30 mph winds that blew that day. The course is in excellent shape tee to green. The staff were very friendly and helpful. This course plays easier than the Fazio but is still a challenging layout. A number of risk reward tee shots on the Love course. I will look forward to playing it again.
by William - 01/23/2013
Greens a little slow, had a great time. $15 replay for 9 holes!
by Charles (Pasadena, MD) - 12/05/2012
by Dee (Richmond, VA) - 12/05/2012
Tough fair course.
by Chad (Enola, PA) - 11/25/2012

The new greens were in superb condition with consistent speed and very true roll. Beautiful course. Long par threes. Very nice pro shop.
by Ralph (Medford, MA) - 10/05/2012
by Neil (Bowie, MD) - 06/26/2012
I enjoyed the course and the greens really play an important factor in deciding to come back or play somewhere else.
by Fred (Chattanooga, TN) - 06/11/2012
by Michael (Methuen, MA) - 05/01/2012
A very nice track ... Will be added to ALL future golf trips to the Grand Strand. Players need to do a better job of fixing ball marks on the greens. My ball nestled into two during my round.
by Rick (La Plata, MD) - 04/28/2012
It's going to be a long time before I play this course again, but it's just because it's too challenging for me. This is a great course for the above average golfer. I was hitting the ball great all day, and still lost 2 balls per hole.
by Al (Arnold, MD) - 04/28/2012
Beautiful course. Loved the ruins with the greens around them.
by Doug (N. Reading, MA) - 04/25/2012
Very good.
by Geoff (Abington, PA) - 04/24/2012
Great condition!!! Greens were hard and fast, much better that the courses in the north. Great experience, but very difficult.
by Marvin (Richmond, Va.) - 04/19/2012
Nice layout.
by Mike - 03/10/2012
Stunning course. Barefoot does it right and is in great condition. We found Love to be the best of the big four. Better layout and better greens.
by Randy (Coraopolis, Penn.) - 02/27/2012
Course is very playable. Cart path only due to heavy rains the only negative.
by Mike (Pittsburgh, Penn.) - 02/27/2012
The layout and course design were excellent. Some of the fairways were a bit thin.
by Daniel (Fort Lee, N.J.) - 11/16/2011
by Tom (Beachwood, N.J.) - 11/12/2011
Course was challenging. Course was in great shape.
by Bob - 11/07/2011
Played 11/3 and the course was great! One of the best in Myrtle Beach.
by Steve (Carbonear, Newfoundland) - 10/25/2011
Not as impressive as normal. We were a little dissatisfied.
by John (Wakefield, Mass.) - 10/12/2011
Always a great course to play!
by Patrick (Sherbrooke, Quebec) - 10/03/2011
This golf course was as we anticipated, very good. We liked the design of the course. Having to play the course on cart path only due to wet conditions made the game more difficult, as we needed to bring many clubs to the ball. On dry conditions, this course would be fantastic.
by Kent (Winston Salem, N.C.) - 09/20/2011
Great complex and course.
by William (Kenilworth, N.J.) - 08/19/2011
Great condition for the month of August.
by Robert (Orange, Conn.) - 07/27/2011
Have played Love course last year, condition better this year despite drought conditions.
by Scott (Bremerton, Wash.) - 07/12/2011
Absolutely loved the greens, great condition!
by Tom - 07/07/2011
The course was in petty good shape despite the lack of rain for the area. The greens rolled fast and where the ball was aimed. The starter and staff were pleasant and around and checked on our status often. The pro shop staff and grill staff were attentive and helpful.
by James (Crown Point, Ind.) - 04/26/2011
Very hard course; fairways run toward the water, you are penalized for some good shots.
by Harvin (Midland, Tex.) - 04/23/2011
by Gavin (Scarborough, Ontario) - 04/19/2011
Had one course marshal tell us we were 5 min. behind schedule - the same place we had started, not to mention there was a full hole open behind us.
by Mike (Carpentersville, Ill.) - 04/09/2011
Overall good.
by Tim (Endicott, N.Y.) - 03/17/2011
Great time, thank you!
by Robert (Toronto, Ontario) - 03/02/2011
Class A facility in every respect.
by Sean (Ladson, S.C.) - 02/15/2011
Course and greens were in great shape. The only complaint was the 30 mph wind gusts that made conditions difficult. Other than that we had a great time as usual!
by Fred (Scotch Plains, N.J.) - 11/24/2010
Favorite course in MB! Norman course is not here for review so I will say here that it is an embarrassment and we should have been warned about the condition. Where there was grass on the greens it was as long as the fairways!
by Gary (Mansfield, Mass.) - 07/06/2010
Very nice course. Professional staff, courteous. Ranger was terrific in apologizing for a sprinker that was on in error. Greens were good although they had been aerated recently you could tell. Great layout ... thoroughly enjoyed.
by Dave (Texas) - 06/08/2010
We were warned at the start that the greens had been aerated earlier in the week, but it definitely lessened our playing experience. Worst greens we faced all week. Cost me at least 3 shots off my score. Overall the staff was great but very hasty with us at the start since they were starting for 3 courses, could be better with someone dedicated to our course.
by Bill/Linda (Georgetown, Tex.) - 05/05/2010
The Love course was our favorite for the week. It was amazing and in fact, on our return trip we'd like to play all four courses!
by Greg (Glace Bay, Nova Scotia) - 05/05/2010
It was a great course.
by Joe (Middletown, N.J.) - 04/29/2010
Shot placement made it interesting and challenging.
by Darren (Edmonton, Alberta) - 04/20/2010
Excellent practice range.
by Matt (Grand Island, N.Y.) - 04/18/2010
Outstanding course in great shape. One of the best in the area. Everything about Barefoot Resort is top shelf.
