Barefoot Resort’s Dye Course has for years now been counted on as the host site for one of the nation’s premier celebrity golf events. The Hootie & The Blowfish Monday After the Masters Celebrity Pro-Am has not only been the lead catalyst for the band’s charitable foundation to raise more than $1.8 million to help others in need, but has placed The Dye Course center stage as it hosts thousands of spectators each year for the cause.
Golf Channel took Barefoot Resort’s exposure level to the national stage in a big way in 2014, relying upon its Pete Dye, Davis Love III and Tom Fazio designs as primary host venues for Season 7 of its hit television series, “Big Break Myrtle Beach.” Twelve competitors hit the links in an ongoing series of elimination challenges that spanned 11 episodes; while one episode featured Jack Nicklaus-designed Pawleys Plantation, all others were contested at the Barefoot venues with 31-year-old Jimmy Brandt emerging as the season’s champion. A $100,000 prize purse and a sponsor’s exemption to a PGA TOUR event awaited the winner.
As Brandt’s victory earned him his chance to pursue his dreams at the highest level, Big Break Myrtle Beach offered a worldwide audience an in-depth opportunity to see why these aspiring pros – and many thousands of vacationing golfers – have come away from their Barefoot Resort golf experience with universally rave reviews.
“We’ve been wanting to get there for awhile,” said Jeff Kissoff, Golf Channel vice president of original productions and a “Big Break” creator and executive producer and creator. “We knew the courses there are fantastic and it was just a matter of time. I’m glad it finally worked out.”
