At Barefoot Resort, Pete Dye set out to create something that would linger in the golfer’s mind forever.
The Dye Course is the only semi-private facility at Barefoot Resort. Bordering the natural white sands of the Carolina Bays, this visually stunning design is filled with the infamous pitfalls for wayward shots that have become synonymous with the Dye name. Both beautiful and treacherous, the Dye Course is an experience you won’t soon forget.
Pete Dye upholds his reputation of building memorable and challenging golf courses by creating a stunning design filled with his infamous pitfalls to capture errant shots. However, if played from the appropriate set of tees, players of all abilities will be able to navigate the Dye Course. Pete Dye is famous for his use of native grasses. The fairways are GN-1 Bermuda grass, a hybrid developed by Greg Norman Turf. The approaches are Tifdwarf Bermudagrass and the greens are Champion UltraDwarf. The dramatic visual effects are achieved by the Centipede and Zoysia grass roughs. The course is a Par 72, 7,343-yard layout, located within the confines of The Dye Estates.

The Fazio Course at Barefoot Resort is routed through a spectacular piece of property in the heart of Barefoot Resort.
Like many European courses, the course does not return to the clubhouse after nine holes. It is not a British linksland course, but rather a classic Lowcountry course, filled with live oaks, pines, sand, natural areas and native grasses.
Located between the Dye Course and the Love Course, the Fazio course has been strategically designed, incorporating extensive tree cover and many lakes into the landscaping. Waste areas and formal bunkers have been handcrafted and placed for visual and strategic effect, while natural elevation changes add a sense of drama and excitement the to golfing round. Water features can be seen on 15 holes, yet many lakes are in out-of-play areas to ensure playability.
The Fazio Course is a Par 71, approximately 6,834 yards long. The course offers five sets of tees to give players of all skill levels the opportunity to play a course of championship caliber and still have the right balance of fun and challenge.
Tees and fairways consist of GN-1, which is a hybrid turf developed by Greg Norman Turf. The approach areas consist of Tif- Sport Bermuda grass and the rough areas are 419 Bermuda grass. The greens consist of a Champion UltraDwarf Grass.
Carolina native, Davis Love III embraces a tradition of Lowcountry character in his latest design. The Love course incorporates the recreated ruins of an old plantation home along holes 3-7. Wide open fairways and generous landing areas set the stage for an unforgettable round of golf.
The Love Course at Barefoot Resort is a traditional course with a Lowcountry character and incorporates Davis Love, III’s Carolina golfing experiences in the design. This visually striking course features course generous landing areas and greens complexes similar to those found on Pinehurst #2, which has hosted more single golf championships than any golf course in America. The Love Course is a Par 72 and plays over 7,000 yards. The course will challenge the good player, yet provide playability and enjoyment for the average player.
Tee and fairways consist of GN-1, which is a hybrid turf developed by Greg Norman Turf. The approach areas consist of Tif-sport Bermuda grass. The greens surfaces are newly acquired Champion UltraDwarf and the rough areas are 419 Bermuda grass.
Seven holes along the Intracoastal Waterway highlight Greg Norman’s design at Barefoot Resort framed by the site’s original vegetation, each hole enhances the beauty of its natural vistas.
Combined with open green complexes and fairways running up to the sand, the Norman course presents a stunning challenge for any golfer.
The stunning waste areas and the site’s natural vegetation were used to frame each hole. The course resembles one found in the deserts of the Southwest, without the desert. For example, one hole has fairways that flow into the native areas surrounding the course while another hole features fairway and a partial rough transitioning into the native areas. A third distinction is a formal rough that encompasses the entire golf hole. There are no angular or artificial lines in the shape of the course. Bunkers have sloping white faces (similar to a MacKenzie style golf course) with intermittent sod wall bunkering at strategic locations throughout the course.
The Norman Course is a Par 72, approximately 7,000 yards long and was designed with Norman’s philosophy to bring into play the”bump and run” shots around the greens. This will give the player the option to play a number of different shots.
The greens are gently undulating and consist of an average green area of 6,300 square feet. The green surfaces consist of a Champion UltraDwarf Grass. Tees and Fairway consist of GN-1, which is a hybrid turf developed by Greg Norman Turf. The approach areas are Tifdwarf grass.
