Description: Seven holes along the Intracoastal Waterway highlight Greg Norman's design...
Seven holes along the Intracoastal Waterway highlight Greg Norman's design at Barefoot Resort framed by the site's original vegetation, each hole enhances the beauty of its natural vistas.Combined with open green complexes and fairways running up to the sand, the Norman course presents a stunning challenge for any golfer.The stunning waste areas and the site's natural vegetation were used to frame each hole. 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.

Nice golf course

A very hard course-pretty narrow-but interesting. Comes up against the intercoastal waterway for the last 4 holes. The back 9 was more interesting than the front.

Course is in very good shape. It isn't a particularly difficult course, but it certainly does have some holes and pin placements that get your attention!~

The course is in terrible condition. The fairways don't have grass, the greens seem dead. There was a fungus everywhere. The landscaping around empty hole is 100% neglected. At best, a lower-level municipal course quality But we accommodations, however, are nice. But I would never play the courses again.

We played this course twice as part of a guys golf trip (5 rounds at Barefoot in 4 days). Of the 4 courses, I would say this was definitely the least interesting. There are 2 or 3 holes along the inter-coastal which are very scenic but most of the other holes wind through condominium complexes. If it wasn't for the... More

Too bad that the greenside bunkers are full of small rocks (pebbles). As a result, the greens are peppered with them as they get sprayed much farther than normal sand. If you don't mind "clearing" all of the pebbles in the line of your putt, then ignore my advice and play it.

I played the Norman Course on a Wednesday afternoon. The website quoted $55 green fees on Wednesdays but that rate was not offered to me. I paid $105. Apparently I had to reserve a tee-time online to receive the lower rate. Started off by myself but joined a few other guys as play was exceedingly slow. The course is in... More

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.
