We went to Barefoot Resort 11/30-12/3 and had perfect weather. We played all four courses and they were all in great shape. The staff was friendly and very accommodating. The rangers did their best to keep the pace of play but it was slow at time (not the rangers fault, golfers need to know how to speed up play). Very impressed with all four courses and argued amount our group about which was the favorite. Greens were in great shape, fairways immaculate. The package at Barefoot is without a doubt worth the price. Thank you for a great experience.

All Barefoot courses are very well maintain. Played at a discounted rate which makes it an affordable experience. Heavy rain the day before required cart path only conditions, which was understandable.

The Love course is enjoyable to play. No real forced carries, good fairway landing areas and reasonably placed bunkers. The greens rolled a little slow, more do to the wet conditions from the prior day.

This course is very nice and the layout is very interesting. The main issue I had with the layout is that it's too punishing. Any shot that's not on the fairway or rough is out of bounds. If you're not a straight hitter you're going to lose a lot of balls and take a lot of penalty strokes. The overall experience was also severely lacking. It felt kind of like disney world where you're just getting shuttled around and it just feels very impersonal. The staff was pretty friendly overall but compared to some of the other courses I play it just felt like I was a number and not a customer if that makes sense.

Was set to go out as a single at 7:10 am on a Sunday, missed the sign to turn into clubhouse as it was still dark, got there to find out range was a shuttle ride away , now I did not have time to use complimentary bucket, got sent out to first tee ( got paired with another single)only to have to wait in fairway as they were still cutting green and spraying it , staff was very helpful and always offering water and ice. Loved the ruins , all greens were true and fast even with the dew. Played in 3.5 hours, has GPS and upon conclusion of roundness they' offered complimentary shoe shine but no one was in locker room to do it . Frustrated with my play I asked if I could still go hit my bucket and they did arrange for it, grass range but balls were in awful condition. To make it a truly wonderful experience I wish I knew range was not on course,and they should have held us till 7:20 and they need new range balls , I will be back to try other 3 courses

I have come to dread drawing any Barefoot Resort course in the Myrtle Beach World Am. I have come to the conclusion that Barefoot Resort does not hold World Am players in very high regard. They know they have guaranteed revenue from the World Am so course conditions be damned. With as many guaranteed players as Barefoot Resort gets on their courses from the 5 days of the World Am, you would think they would hold off punching and sanding their greens one more week...which is not that big a deal. But, nope...largest single site tournament in the world and Barefoot greens are punched and sanded. Happens every time I draw one of their courses.

And, staff...rude, unfriendly, and not helpful at all.

I would love to see the World Am staff tell Barefoot that unless they treat us a little better and hold off punching and sanding their greens until after the tournament...they would not play their courses again. It sucks.

Now for the Love course. Over the years, the conditioning has gotten worse. Not very well manicured. Their "ruins" (no idea why this is even on the course) has just become a vine covered wall of no significance. Looks ugly.

We have played Fazio and Love so far in the Barefoot area and we enjoyed Love by far. It is a beautiful course with some challenging shots on greens that give way to collection areas on the back. You need to be accurate with your club selection, but it is very enjoyable course to play. We played it with a group of 8 people with handicaps ranging from 2 to 25 and we all enjoyed it. Recommended in the Myrtle Beach area!

This a review of the overrated, overpriced and overbooked Barefoot Golf Facility that I posted to Yelp this past Saturday.

We were a group of 18 who played the Love course at Barefoot today. As we were about to play the 10th hole, the ranger placed 3 foursomes ahead of us including a group that was playing an 8 person scramble as the course was "double booking". As a result we had to wait 10-15 minutes on every shot during the back nine which took over three hours to play. We spoke to the ranger who told us to talk to the pro shop. The pro shop could not have been less helpful, understanding or accommodating. The words that they used with an arrogant and obnoxious shrug of the shoulders were "it is what it is".

Rude and disrespectful. Avoid at all costs!

Good layout,enjoyable for two intermediate mid teen handicappers.We had breakfast prior to each of our rounds in their excellent clubhouse facilities and first class staff in both pro shop and restaurant made this a very nice experience.When we turned up to play Fazio in the rain and mid thirties cold temperatures the next day they must have realized we enjoyed their courses...that or we were starved of golf up north in winter!

This course plays like two completely different tracks with the front nine being scenic and fun and the back nine being unmemorable and generic. Fairways, bunkers and greens were in good shape but it seemed like the greens had recently been aerated and were a bit slow and bumpy. I found the staff to be very professional and cordial from start to finish. Coming from North Jersey where most municipal courses will cost you $50 bucks to play with a cart, this place was a steal for $63!

The LOVE course was very nice, great shape and the pace of play was good. Only problem was they sent us off 10 and we were told we couldnt get off the front 9 for 2.5 hours. Kinda of stupid but we ended up getting off in between 2 groups that were running late. Course seems to cater to its members, which is fine, but at $105 I would expect a little special attention.

An impressive facility with a plethora of amenities and unsurpassed service that make for a very special golf experience. Wednesdays are discount days for all four courses at the Barefoot Resort. Complimentary range balls with shuttle service to a practice facility that includes its own clubhouse facilities. The Love course offers a variety of challenges without being punitive including a reachable par four that is no risk and all reward. This is a course that will appeal to golfers at all levels.

The Love course still has its winter coat but it is starting to improve. The greens were a bit slow,9, but putted true. Ths staff was great. The driving range takes a shuttle ride to get to. It was a cold ride on a trailer pulled behind a pu truck. Brrrrr! Overall it was a fun day.
