The Fazio Course at Barefoot Resort & Golf is another work of art by award-winning architect Tom Fazio, who masterfully designed the course to accentuate its Lowcountry assets of live oaks, pines, sand and native grasses, combined with natural elevation changes and water features on 15 holes.
The Fazio Course is located between Barefoot’s Dye and Love Courses in North Myrtle Beach, but certainly stands out on its own at 6,834 yards long. The par 71 layout is European in style, in that the course doesn’t return to the clubhouse after nine holes.
Greens consist of newly added Champions Ultra Dwarf Grass, tees and fairways boast GN-1 Bermuda grass (a hybrid turf developed by Greg Norman Turf), approach areas are seeded with Tif- Sport Bermuda grass and the rough areas are 419 Bermuda grass.
Players of all skill levels will be able to fully take advantage of this championship course that has been listed among the Best Courses You Can Play by the South Carolina golf course ratings panel, ranked No. 81 among Golf Digest’s America’s 100 Greatest Public Golf Courses in 2009 and touted No. 6 among Golf Digest’s Top 50 Courses of Myrtle Beach in 2005.
Before you hit the greens, come over to the Driving Range, a lighted facility with more than 30 acres of manicured grass. How about a lesson from the Pro? Barefoot Resort and Golf offers Dyer Golf Academy. Alasdair Dyer has over 20 years experience and can work with beginner levels up to the elite levels.
After you are done with your lesson or hitting your bucket of balls, grab a bite to eat at Putters Pub after a round of golf. The Pub consists of two large rooms, with one offering a bar, both have several tables, video games, pool tables, fireplace and 15 flat panel tv’s to watch all of the great games. The menu consists of wood-fired pizzas, seafood baskets, burgers and more. The Pub has a great happy hour too from 4-7 PM daily.
After a round, relax in the luxurious 35,000-square-foot Barefoot Dye clubhouse, which offers breathtaking views of holes 9, 10 and 18. Private member areas feature fine dining, a full fitness complex, men and women locker rooms and elegant lodging. The pro shop is filled with the finest top brands of apparel for all seasons, golf clubs, a wonderful array of embroidered logo hats, giftware, and most brands of golf balls.
The Clubhouse has a very smooth flow, with meticulous thought and care given to function in relationship to other social gathering spaces like the private members room. The clubhouse restaurant boasts panoramic views and has an outdoor patio overlooking the 18th hole of the Tom Fazio designed course and the adjacent lake. Ideal for post-golf gatherings, business meetings, weddings and special events for up to 400, you will find a staff devoted to customer service and superb meals from our executive chef, Dave Bennett.
