The Dye course was set apart and was definitely my favorite. It had a massive number of bunkers, lots of water, and the most challenging layout. It was downright hard and very long. For example, there is a 564-yard par five. This course is being made private, so play it while you can. As we were driving up, we saw a mama bear and three cubs, so it definitely has some wildlife.
The Love course was challenging because of the elevated greens. Many a shot went on and off the greens. Also, errant tee shots would inevitably find dense woods. Finally, the par fours were particularly tough. You had to make up your ground on the par fives. I also liked the elevated tee boxes.
The Norman course was pretty standard, but challenging in its own right. You definitely had to play a little more strategically and setup your approaches to the green. It was a nice course, but I didn't like all of the construction going on.
The Fazio course has some interesting shots as well. There was one hole with a split green and some beautiful use of the existing trees. This course did have a lot of houses along the holes, so it felt a bit less special, but I recommend it as a nice warm-up for the other courses.
The best part about playing here was the closeness of the condos to the course. We had a 5-minute ride to the course, so we could shower between rounds. We also got a very nice deal on a stay-and-play package. You can call 888/557-6226 for tee times and to make lodging arrangements.

The shops, outlets, and restaurants are divided into four separate shopping areas reminiscent of an old fishing village. All are connected by a boardwalk system that includes three pedestrian bridges spanning the lake. There are more than 100 specialty shops, 13 factory direct stores, 15 restaurants and dining facilities, and 11 entertainment attractions.
It’s very difficult to give an adequate evaluation of the multitude and shops and activities in a 500-word report. One really needs to check out the Barefoot Landing website to get a good understanding of the various shops and attractions here. You can get to the website by going to the following link:
The father-in-law and I had two favorite shops that piqued our interest: (1) The Bible Factory Outlet, and (2) Tools and More. In the first, I picked up a copy of Matthew Henry’s Bible Commentary for around $14 and my father-in-law bought a copy of the works of Josephus for about the same price. The Tools and More shop was quite interesting, too. Remember all those TV specialty ads claiming the items "can’t be bought in any store"? Well, don’t believe it, because many of the items were available here.

Also included in the shopping plaza were tigers. Yes, tigers. And birds. The tigers were amazing. We actually got to get our picture taken with a tiger cub. You could also get your picture made with a full-size tiger or pay (quite a bit) for a few minutes in a room with several tiger cubs and get it filmed on a video camera.
If you are in the Myrtle Beach area and would like to have a whole lot of shopping fun, I suggest you definitely visit Barefoot Landing!
