As one of four stellar designs at Barefoot Resort & Golf, the Love Course provides ample challenge for the more skilled player, yet playability and enjoyment for the average player. Join us on a dynamic video and hole-by-hole tour of this magnificent layout.
There’s no better collection of championship courses in all of Myrtle Beach than at Barefoot Resort & Golf. And the Love Course is a cornerstone of the four courses that continues to define itself as the most decorated multi-course facility on the Grand Strand.
With such an extensive playing career spanning the globe, Davis Love III has incorporated a lifetime of learning into his design here at Barefoot Resort & Golf. As one of the longest players on tour year after year, the Love course stretches to a formidable length of over 7,000 yards from the back tees … though multiple sets of tees offer an appropriate challenge for all caliber of players.
Always incorporating the natural landscape and history of each site, Davis Love III brilliantly incorporated an old brick plantation home into his design, visible on holes 3 through 7. These remains beautifully frame the shortest par 4 on the Myrtle Beach golf scene and the visuals are as dramatic as a player’s choices off the tee.
By the 6th green, Love creatively incorporated the plantation home ruins as a unique feature that’ll make you think when pitching onto the green.
The 13th hole is a great par 5 bending right the entire length of the hole with a split fairway and protected by green side bunkers to the right as well as a meandering creek.
The most intimate part of the course is found on holes 14 through 16.
A beautiful tee shot from the back tee on the 14th should be well placed to reach this elevated green with multiple tiers. The par-3 15th green sits on a perch with swells and natural sandy areas, claiming errant tee shots … a real tough test. And the par-4 16th, another split fairway with a centered fairway bunker and water down the right to an expansive green, is receptive to long irons and fairway metal approach shots.
The Love experience finishes with the longest hole on the course, the par-5 18th, stretching to 596 yards. With cat tails, bunkers and a lake surrounding this final green, a match well played will likely come down to this final hole to settle the score.
A past number one golf course in Myrtle Beach as voted by Golf Digest, the perennial award-winning Love course at Barefoot Resort continues to exceed expectations for members and guests every day.
