The Dye Club is one of four courses at Barefoot Resort, all of which are quite a solid challenge from any set of tees. But at over 7,300 yards from the tips and boasting five par fours longer than 460 yards from that set. Add undulating greens, plenty of water and Dye’s well-known pot bunkers to the mix and you have one of the most visually stimulating and ornery but nonetheless enjoyable golf courses in the region.
The Dye Course at Barefoot Resort & Golf, handcrafted by designer Pete Dye, is both a beauty and a challenge. That’s forever the aim of Dye, by design.
The semi-private facility in North Myrtle Beach is set amidst the backdrop of the exclusive Barefoot Resort and surrounded by The Dye Estates, a private, gated community.
Although the course can be unforgiving, players of all abilities should be able to meet the challenges embedded within the par 72, 7,343-yard layout when played from the right tees. Dye utilizes native grasses; fairways are GN-1 Bermuda grass, a hybrid developed by Greg Norman Turf; approaches are Tifdwarf Bermudagrass; greens are L-93 Bentgrass and roughs are seeded with Centipede and Zoysia grasses.
The Dye Course at Barefoot Resort and Golf is certainly turning heads nationally, listed among the Best Courses You Can Play by the South Carolina golf course ratings panel, ranked No. 99 among Golf Digest’s America’s 100 Greatest Public Courses in 2009 and ranked No. 10 among Golf Digest’s Top 50 Courses of Myrtle Beach in 2005.
