About Barefoot Resort & Golf - Love Course (North Myrtle Beach, SC)

Bearing the name of its designer, professional golfer and golf architect Davis Love III, the Barefoot Resort Love Golf Course is perennially ranked by Golf Digest and other magazines as one of America’s best public golf courses as well as one of the Grand Strand’s finest.

Measuring 6,844 yards, the course has been one of the area’s most popular since opening in 2000. And while the course is reminiscent of many other courses depending on the particular hole being played, it’s definitely unlike any other.

With wide fairways reminiscent of Pinehurst and elevated tees, golfers have plenty of leeway in their drives. But with the majority of the course’s greens being on the smallish size and well protected by bunkers, undulating and tiered, the tee shots are about the only shots that leave any such latitude.

And while the fairways are wide, some interesting twists make many of those challenging as well, like the wide No. 4 that’s split by a river. A split fairway is also a feature of No. 13 with a short and iffy route and a long safe route that funnels your ball down the slope toward the dangerous route if not hit accurately.

And of course there are bunkers everywhere and a few other non-golf features like Scottish ruins on holes 4 and 6 that also contribute to making a round of golf here memorable. The 35,000-square-foot Barefoot Clubhouse offers a full service pro shop, dining, a lounge and many other amenities and there’s a 30-acre lighted practice facility, The Range at Barefoot.

Davis Love is an evil man! Standing on the tee box you say this hole looks simple and you walk off the green with a double bogey. Great lay out all greens were elevated. Greens were big and fast so if you find yourself on the wrong side of the green you might 3 putt. Fairway bunkers seem to be golf ball magnets. They are strategically place and seem to be where you are going to hit your ball. This is a course that I want to play again.
