The Fazio Course at Barefoot Resort is routed through a spectacular piece of property. Like many European courses (and unlike most American layouts), the course does not return to the clubhouse after nine holes. Still, it is not a British linksland course, but rather a classic Lowcountry course, filled with live oaks, pines, sand, natural areas and native grasses.

Expect to find numerous waste areas as well as bunkers that have been handcrafted and placed for visual and strategic effect, while natural elevation changes add a sense of drama and excitement to your round. Water is visible on 15 holes, but comes into play on far fewer holes.
