Davis Love III's course at Barefoot Resort & Golf in North Myrtle Beach, S.C. is filled with Lowcountry character

NORTH MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. -- You'll find wide-open fairways and generous landing areas when you tee it up on the Love Course at Barefoot Resort & Golf .

But don't fall into a false sense of security. The closer you get to the holes, the greater the challenges.

North Carolina native and PGA Tour veteran Davis Love III designed the 7,047-yard layout, which incorporates recreated ruins of an old plantation home on some of the holes on the front nine, adding to a golf course that's filled with Lowcountry character.

The 294-yard fourth is one of the few par 4s along the Grand Strand where you can reach the green off the tee, but the next hole is a 463-yard par 5 that is the most difficult on the course, which Golf Digest voted No. 1 in Myrtle Beach in 2005.

The Love Course is among four at Barefoot Resort & Golf (along with designs from Greg Norman, Tom Fazio and Pete Dye), making it one of the top golf destinations on the East Coast.
