The course resembles one found in the deserts of the Southwest, without the desert. For example, one hole has fairways that flow into the native areas surrounding the course while another hole features fairway and a partial rough transitioning into the native areas. A third distinction is a formal rough that encompasses the entire golf hole. There are no angular or artificial lines in the shape of the course. Bunkers have sloping white faces (similar to a MacKenzie style golf course) with intermittent sod wall bunkering at strategic locations throughout the course.The Norman Course is a Par 72, approximately 7,200 yards long and was designed with Norman's philosophy to bring into play the"bump and run" shots around the greens. This will give the player the option to play a number of different shots.The greens are gently undulating and consist of an average green area of 6,300 square feet. The green surfaces consist of a Champion UltraDwarf Grass. Tees and Fairway consist of GN-1, which is a hybrid turf developed by Greg Norman Turf. The approach areas are Tifdwarf grass. « less

Played midweek with a mid-morning tee time, arranged the day prior. Drove to range before showing at the pro shop. No problems. Staff was very friendly, all around. Course was in impeccable shape. I'm a high-handicapper and can only compare with a few other MB courses but only saw one area under repair on the entire course (#18 tee boxes--all... More

The starter operation is a bit rough - they wait until 5 minutes before your tee time to get bags on cart and don't bring a cooler! You have to be shuttled to the driving range so arrive early. The course is an open track and very playable. Several holes are on the inter-coastal which adds some variety to the... More

We played the Norman course twice during our weekend since the Fazio was closed. The greens had been aerated a few weeks before and dressed with sand so it was hard to read and gauge putts. Sand traps were inconsistent and I got a few weird lies because the ball didn't release off the banks.

Course in okay shape. Easy play. A lot of people on the course made for slow play. Greens at a tough speed made the course challenging. Par 3's a little simplistic but a couple of them had great views of the intercostal waterway. The turn is out on the course so no chance to get mid round food.

I think we caught the Norman course on a bad day - it had been overseeded, and was extremely, extremely wet from the sprinklers being on all morning. I mean, we were sinking into the turf on the tee boxes - that's how wet it was. I also felt like the layout was the weakest of the 4 courses, but... More

There are very good green fees for this course at this time of year in the pm. Played on a Saturday @ 12:30 with a group of 30+ guys. The greens are very new and putted true. It was a hot, humid August day. The ranger came around 3 times and checked on us. Not to push time wise, as... More

Play this course first as you will be disappointed if you have played any of the others at Barefoot. Generous landing areas off of the tee, a chance to get a sense of shot carry distances and wind effect if from another part of the country. A good course for couples golf. There is really only one hole along the... More

The course layout doesn't fit my eye and it seemed to have little variability. Based on remarks from my friend, who works at the barefoot Resort, I expected it to be in fantastic shape, but it wasn't. The staff was friendly and accommodating and the clubhouse is beautiful, but you spend only minutes in the clubhouse and hours on the... More

Out of the 4 Barefoot courses at Barefoot Landing, this one is my favorite. I believe it is the most scenic (with several holes right alongside the intercoastal waterway - don't slice!). Parts of this course can be tight (Par 3 16th), but mostly wide open. Fair amount of elevation change (so a 450 yard Par 5 might seem short,... More
