Barefoot Dye Club Update – My quick front 9 experience…

Barefoot Dye Golf Course in North Myrtle Beach

Open fairways and Dye's famous pot-bunkers characterize this course.

We always do our best to respond to inquiries about golf course conditions from either myself or from the golf pro themselves. There was a comment left by a blogger on our Dye Club Golf page. That comment was responded to by the Dye Club Head Golf Professional.  So, I personally wanted to check out the course and see the condition of the greens for myself!

With that said, I got a chance to play with our assistant golf director in our normal, “‘Teacher vs Student” match on the front 9-nine holes of the Pete Dye Club at Barefoot.

This course is one of the hardest courses on the Grand Strand. With GPS on the carts, you must pay attention to the layout of the course. Over one of the famous Pete Dye Hills could be one of the famous Pete Dye pot bunkers.  The course has open fairways, but that is to notice from the tee box. The course also has a mixture of green sizes from the #1 handicap hole Par 4, 7th hole that is 49-yards long from front to back or like the Par 3, 15th hole that is 35-yards wide.

Tees, fairways and bunkers were great. Greens were spotty, but rolled great! With our cooler weather coming, the Dye Club will be in Prime Condition for the Spring 2012 golf season with Bent grass greens.

As for the Teacher vs the Student match? The Teacher closed out the Student 2-1.

Currently the Dye Club is ranked #3 on our Top 10 Myrtle Beach Golf Courses and Our Featured Golf Course of the week.

Caledonia Golf Course

Caledonia Golf Course took over the #1 golf course spot for August.

Like we’ve said in the past, these top golf courses blog posts have been highly trafficked and we’ve been getting lots of good feedback, so we’ll keep ’em coming!  Don’t forget though, if you need extra help picking a golf course for your budget, feel free to give me a call or head over to our Myrtle Beach Golf Course list.

After two consecutive months at the #1 position, the Barefoot Dye course slipped in rankings, with Caledonia sliding up and taking it’s spot.

1. Caledonia –  This Mike Strantz design in Pawley’s Island finally rose to the #1 slot.

2. Bald Head Island – Noted for it’s seclusion, only reachable by ferry. Moved up from #3.

3. Dunes Club – Former #1, immaculate condition at the moment, but still couldn’t overcome #1 and #2.

4. Barefoot Dye – Was #1 for two consecutive months. This is hard course to tackle as some votes may show.

5. Pawley’s Plantation – Jack Nichlous design holding it’s own at the #5 position again.

6. TPC of Myrtle Beach – Tom Fazio and Lanny Watkins design still graces us with it’s top 10 presence.

7. Tidewater – This Little River, SC course also considered “best of the beach” with it’s great marsh views.

8. Pearl East – Moved up from #10 and should stay in the top 10 once it re-opens in October with new mini-verde greens.

9. True Blue – The sister course of the new #1 Caledonia (also designed by Mike Strantz)

10. Willbrook Plantation – One of the local favorites for being a great course in Pawley’s Island (and a top 50 in the country for women).
