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.

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 course...so 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

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. -
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!

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.

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.

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.

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!!

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.

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.

Barefoot Resort - Love Course
by Art (Wilmington, DE) -
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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
