Recovering Nicely from Winterkill

This early summer season in Myrtle Beach "Winterkill" has affected many courses including the Fazio design I played the course in mid-june and it was 2 weeks post-seasonal/winterkill maintenance. Many of the greens were still patchy and soft from the combo of aeration and sod patching. So when I went back two weeks later I was ready to see how quickly recovery was moving along. To my surprise the recovery was very quick if I had to put a number on it I would say the greens are 90% healed. They were rolling well again and ready for normal play. So for those coming to play know that this course like others is close to a point where you wouldnt even notice the difference compared to two months ago. Aside from the conditions coming back the course itself is a test. The layout makes it play 200+ yards longer than the scorecard shows. Typical, Fazio placement is key throughout the round. Barefoot service is outstanding. The Weather was perfect and made for an enjoyable round.

Solid Course

Solid #2 course at the Resort. It resembles much of Fazio's other work, but I suspect most will anticipate that coming in. Very good variety in the holes and solid conditioning.

NOT WORTH THE MONEY!!

We played the Fazio course as an extra 18 holes during our annual weekend trip to Pawley's Island. Everything on Pawleys Island was booked for afternoon rounds so we decided to give Barefoot Resorts a try. They did have 2 available tee times so we decided to make the trip up (we played TPC Myrtle Beach Sat Morning) and play the Fazio Course. When we arrived we went into pro shop and paid our $132 greens fee. Paying that much for a round of golf one would think the course would be in great shape. However we soon found out the course was in horrible shape and probably not worth paying $50 to play in that condition. I completely understand that it might be considered early in the season and that they had a rough winter, but to charge $132 for the condition of the course was ridiculous. The greens were just starting to green up and grow in, the fairways had several bare spots and were still brown in several areas, and the rough was non-existent. The bunkers were in good shape. Pace of play was extremely slow. On hole 10 which is a par 5 there was a group of 4 on the green, a group of 4 in the fairway, a group of 4 on tee box, our group waiting on tee box, and a group of 4 coming off 9th green. To say it was a parking lot out there was an understatement. The course layout is nice and challenging, but way over priced for the condition. Our group played The Tradition, River Club, TPC, and Willbrook as part of our weekend package on pawleys island. These courses were in great shape. We also ended up calling around and finding an afternoon round on Saturday at the Wizard. The Wizard was in decent shape. Fairways and greens were nice, burly rough and bunkers could use some attention. However cost to play wizard was only $70. A price that I didn't mind paying for course conditions. So in closing would I pay $132 to play the Fazio course again. The answer is NO!!

Difficult golf test

The Fazio is the second of the Barefoot courses we've played this trip. The course was rather difficult and in a few cases frustrating. You have to pay attention to the slopes in the fairways because many of them will run your ball into trouble even if you hit the fairway. In some cases that trouble is deep bunkers, which are everywhere on the course, and in other cases that trouble is water. The course is also having some conditioning problems in the fairways and rough. There were some dead spots in the fairways and a lot of the rough was very bare. I understand that the rough is usually still brown this time of year in Myrtle Beach, but this was beyond the usual. The greens were in good shape and the layout is nice. Overall, the course is challenging and we liked the Norman Course better.

Consistently high quality

Course very well maintained. No complaints. Very generous fairways. Nice greens, tees and fairways. Layout can be challenging. No surprises. A bit pricey and there are others of equal quality at lower prices. Will play this many times in the future. A keeper for the group of 20+ that have been coming here for 25+ years.

Not up to parr

I asked around other Myrtle Beach courses I played for a real nice course to play , I get several tips and picked Barefoot Fazio course . We paid $145 that was no problem at all , but not for what we got . We had 45 minutes to tee time and figured we'd go to the range , you have to take a shuttle to get there, problem was the shuttle didn't come back until 8 minutes before are tee time . When I complained about that one could care less .Now we are rushing to the tee , my muny in New Jersey is more organized. Starter sends us to the first tee and the foursome in front of us hasn't even teed off yet , because the group if front of them just did. Then the foursome behind us comes up , 6 carts now sitting there. That was the pace of the day . Course itself has a very nice layout but was all brown and dried out , overall condition was very disappointing . I met one of the members after the round and asked him about the conditions and he said they have been complaining about that for awhile . He asked what we paid and was shocked they charged us $145 the shape the course is in .. He actually apologized and invite us back as his member guest for $60 but we were flying out the next day . If you're looking for a real nice course around Myrtle Beach the others recommended were Tidewater , Glen Dornoch and TPC Mytrle Beach , try those before going to Barefoot . But if you go to Barefoot , Greg Norman's Grill restaurant was very good .

Last time playing this course

Course itself is not a problem. Pace of play is pathetic. Downright embarrassing. No Marshalls to push play along, people who haven't a clue on how to complete a sub 5 hour round. Too many good courses to water time here.

Going to the beach

This course is a great mental challenge. Fazio screws with you making the fairways look nonexistent from the tee and more menacing from different points of a respective hole. Trust yourself. That's the biggest challenge. If you keep swinging, you'll be fine. Views are great. Conditions were surprisingly good, given the rain recently.

Beautiful golf course but challenging

We played the black tees on the Fazio course and there were some very challenging and long par 4's on the front side. The back 9 was a little less challenging and made it more enjoyable for a 10 and above handicap. The clubhouse was beautiful and the staff were stellar. I would recommend this course for any handicap but would advise to be extra attentive to the tees you select.
