Top 3 Holes At Barefoot Resort & Golf - Love Course

I definitely count my self lucky for being able to play one of the courses at Barefoot Resort & Golf during my stay on the Grand Strand this past week. What a great place to experience golf in the Myrtle beach area. The Love Course was a special golf course to play. I can't wait to head back to the area to play the other courses at Barefoot. Here's my take on my favorite/top holes from my round there.

Holes #4 & #6 Barefoot Resort - Love Course
These two holes are just plain fun, scenic and full of history. I've never played a hole on a golf course where the backdrops are old plantation ruins but that's what you get when you play these holes. Bring your iPhone because if your like me you'll be taking lot of photos. Below are just a few samples. They are recreated ruins but it's still very cool. Hole #4 is an uphill par and at about 265 yd. from the white tees your definitely hitting driver on this hole for a possible eagle of birdie putt. Just a real fun, scenic hole.

Hole #6 is a beautiful par 4 at 340 yd. This hole plays tough especially with the wind. With trouble down both the left and right sides, beware bunkers can easily gobble up your ball. Your second shot with a good drive will leave you with a wedge in but remember bunkers surround the green as well. Two great holes that you'll remember big time!

Holes #13 Barefoot Resort - Love Course
There are many top holes on the Love Course but #13 sticks out for me because it's both scenic and challenging even though at 447 yd. it's a relatively short par 5. From the tee you have to decide to either take your drive down the right side where you might run out of fairway and wind up in water or down the left side which might make the hole a bit longer. This hole really makes you think off the tee. For most golfers you'll be laying up with your second shot just make sure you avoid the trouble on the right side being bunkers and water. The green is smallish and contour so a par is a good score for most on this hole.

Glad you enjoyed your day at Barefoot's Love Course. I totally agree with your comments about this great course. I am a winter member at all 4 courses there and you will love the other 3 as much as you loved the Love course. The Dye is a must play, as well as Norman and Fazio. I have started taking them for granted, but after seeing your pictures and reading your comments, I relize I am staying at the best Myrtle Beach has to offer.
