The Norman Course at Barefoot Resort in North Myrtle Beach recently earned a ranking of 8.5 from player/reviewers at Myrtle Beach Golf Insider, earning special recognition for the quality of its staff and course conditions, especially its Champion Bermuda greens.

Opened in 2000, the Norman Course is one of the more playable tracks in the area, based largely on the prevalence of short grass and sand over penal longer rough, especially around its green complexes. Golfers who miss greens are often able to putt or play bump-and-run shots instead of the flop or pitch shots necessitated by greenside lies in the rough. With only 60 acres of maintained grass on the course, it helps to be comfortable in the sand as well. Perhaps the best of the 18 green complexes at the short par four eighth. Seven sod-faced bunkers are strewn about the last 50 or so yards of the hole, with the undulating green surrounded by a large collar of closely mown grass. This allows players to play the hole a number of different ways and play recovery shots ranging from long putts to bump-and-runs to short chips with a fairway wood, if desired.

Another excellent feature of the Norman Course is its proximity to the Intracoastal Waterway. As golfers exit the green of the par five 9th hole, they begin an inward nine that has five holes that play by the scenic manmade marvel. As they look down at the long, narrow green of the 203-yard 10th, they should not be surprised to see boats traversing the Waterway, potentially adding a few spectators to the scene.

Barefoot Resort’s facilities are second to none in the Myrtle Beach area. Guests of the Norman Course, sharing a facility as it does with the Love and Fazio Courses, can practice before or after their rounds at Barefoot’s enormous grass driving range, putting and chipping greens and a practice bunker.

I agree with the previous review...Barefoot has ruined the 18th Hole on the Norman Course....What Was a great finishing Par 5 was ruined and is now a dull Par 4. SHAME on Barefoot for destroying the original Greg Norman Layout...It's a loss

Clubhouse and staff were great. Course not up to standards compared to the times I've played Norman course before. I'd estimate I've played it 5-6 times previously.

I've now played all of the Barefoot courses and although the Norman course is good, I would say it ranks number four for me. Layout was OK, as there were some really nice holes, but also some very forgettable ones. Some of the holes on the Intracoastal waterway had great potential but didn't seem to take full advantage of the location. The course wasn't particularly difficult, but could jump up and bite you if you lost focus. My biggest disappointment was the 18th hole, which was obviously designed as a par 5 or long par 4, but the original tee boxes seemed to be abandoned in favor of shorter ones, taking much of the drama away. Overall I was satisfied for the $55 afternoon rate, but it's not on my short list. I certainly wouldn't pay the $110 rack rate for it. Greens had not yet been punched so that was a big reason we chose this one.

Nice course and clubhouse. We had 3 20-plus handicappers course was a little tight at times. It helped a lot to have GPS yardage on the course. Still had a great time.

Mid handicappers from the UK. An enjoyable round with a wide open feel about the course though the greens are well protected. Greens were in better condition than the other Barefoot courses.

The staff was nice and helpful but the course was not all I was expecting. Almost the whole course is lined with condos and not very visually pleasing. A couple holes near the Intracoastal were away from the condos but not many. As for the course, the fairways were painted and very thin. Not in good shape. Greens were only okay but nothing special. The layout is not exciting at all. The Fazio and Love courses are much better. I would choose this last of the Barefoot courses.

Very nice course, well kept, helpful staff. Only things I can think of that were least appealing were the prices.
