Fair course, but compromised

Certainly, IMO, the least of the four at Barefoot. A number of holes on the back nine are heavily compromised by housing. The ninth hole of a very good looking hole with plenty of strategy, but I have to wonder why it wasn't designed closer to the waterway (it's only about 40 yards away, but no view). Not a bad course by any means, just average.

Worth playing around $100

The Norman Course was the first we played in the Barefoot complex and it was very nice. The conditioning was good and the layout was cool. There are seven holes along the inter-coastal and all the other holes are great too. If you can get a rate at $100 or less definitely give it a shot.

Hot weather

Interesting

This is a good resort course to play and the layout was very fair to players but at the time I played the greens were really struggling. I expected the course to be in better shape because Bermuda grass typically grows better in hot weather, which it was during the month of August, but unfortunately I was mistaken.

Deserves more love!

By reading these reviews, you'd think this was a dog track. Really good golf. Not the elite crust of Myrtle, but a really fun. Good tee selection for different playing levels. Fun par-3s. Good conditions. Asthetically appealing. Good staff. Fun time.

Save as much $ as you can

All the barefoot courses are great conditions. I choose Norman because it has 5 holes that run along the inland waterway. $74 is high for this place. Play on Wednesdays or late evening to get this $74 rate. No way would I pay over $100 to play these courses. I drove around and looked at the other courses. Norman was actually a more interesting layout. It actually makes you think about if you can carry bunkers, positioning and so forth. For a short time I actually felt like a pro deciding upon my tee shot placement, risk/reward of carrying shots over hazards, etc. The placement of the hazards are not such that you must hit the best shot of your life. Just your average swing but you must factor in wind, how are you hitting right now, etc....which makes it quite fun for a change.

Course Marshalls Needed

Good course and value, lot of sand and waste areas. Only issue I/we had was a group in front of us that was way too slow and the course marshalls were not to be found or did not say anything to the group in front of them. The group was slow all day, first tee each member of the foursome hit 2 shots each while we were waiting and teed off 15 minutes past our scheduled start and nearly got confrontational with our group, and I was playing with 2 members. Other than that, it was fine, prefer the Love course over this though.

Weakest of the Barefoot courses

our foursome played all 4 Barefoot courses and we were unanimous in putting the Norman course at the back of the pack. It has it's virtues with the par 3 10th one of the best holes in the area and also liked the par 3 17th. But the rest of the layout wasn't inspired.

Weakest link

We played first week of January so not ideal but placed alongside the other three Barefoot courses, this for me is the one to miss.Seemingly very poor drainage led to an extremely wet course and consequentially poor bunkers.It is tight so needs a more conservative approach.

Great Course

Tightest of the 4 Barefoot courses, it was a little soaked compared to the other 3, but anyone who thinks this is the worst of the 4 courses should reconsider. This was the dampest, but the layout is still fun and challenging.
