Barefoot Resort & Golf has four of the most unique courses in the Myrtle Beach area, with one-of-a-kind golf holes that help define each. The 14th at the Dye course, the old ruins behind the 4th green at the Love course and the long, trench-like bunker that guards the entire left side of the fairway of the 14thhole at the Fazio course are just some of many that fit the bill.
The Norman course designed by (you guessed it) Greg Norman features multiple holes along the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway. To go with the scenic views, the Norman course is further defined by large bunkers, extreme undulation and wild, native grass. And a hole that encompasses all four of these features is the par-3 10th.
Greg Norman has designed more than 100 golf courses across 34 different countries, and a feature common in his designs and redesigns is flat-faced bunkering. The Norman course at Barefoot Resort & Golf is no exception, where golfers will come across a slew of sprawling bunkers with large, flat faces. The 10th Hole features four of them, and with three guarding the back side and one protecting the front edge, these bunkers are strategically placed around the putting surface. Combine all of that with false fronts, native grass and the Intracoastal Waterway to the right, and you’re presented one tough hole to conquer.
From the back tee box, the 10th will play 205 yards. It’s all downhill and can play shorter if they put the pin on the front half of the green. Opposite the false front of this green sits a large down slope that will feed the ball toward the center of the green, and hopefully toward the hole.
Strategy plays a major role in when putting together a good round of golf, and the 10th hole at the Norman course at Barefoot Resort does give golfers options for getting the ball close to the hole – whether you fly it there directly, or let it ride that back slope and feed to the hole from there.
