Barefoot Resort & Golf - Love Course

USA, SC & GA Lowcountry
Designer: Davis Love III
Course Opened: 2001

Carolina native, Davis Love III embraces a tradition of Lowcountry character in his latest design. The Love course incorporates the recreated ruins of an old plantation home along holes 3-7. Wide open fairways and generous landing areas set the stage for an unforgettable round of golf.

The Love Course at Barefoot Resort is a traditional course with a Lowcountry character and incorporates Davis Love, III’s Carolina golfing experiences in the design. This visually striking course features course generous landing areas and greens complexes similar to those found on Pinehurst #2,  which has hosted more single golf championships than any golf course in America. The Love Course is a Par 72 and plays over 7,000 yards. The course will challenge the good player, yet provide playability and enjoyment for the average player.

Tee and fairways consist of GN-1, which is a hybrid turf developed by Greg Norman Turf. The approach areas consist of Tif-sport Bermuda grass. The greens surfaces are newly acquired Champion UltraDwarf and the rough areas are 419 Bermuda grass.

This 15-year-old Davis Love III creation stands out in a town loaded with great golf. Love’s Donald Ross-infused, inverted saucer greens, imaginative contouring and chipping areas and re-created plantation house ruins add up to pure fun. The option-laden drivable par-4 fourth hole is one of the Lowcountry’s best risk/reward tests.
