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.

Our family stayed at a condo here and loved it. We had a two bedroom condo with two bathrooms, kitchen, dinning and living room. It was close to the pool and grilling area. There was a trolley that passed by to drop you off at the beach and back. The schedule for pick up and drop of was not to... More

Played the course with my family, my wife and the kids(12,15,17). The staff was really great and the layout of the course is really good. I was a bit afraid that houses would be in play on several holes, but mostly this is not the case. There are fairly wide fairways. Greens were ok, but they recently put sand on... More

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!~

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.

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.
