Home to Darius Rucker’s nationally known ‘Monday After the Masters’ golf tournament, The Dye Course at Barefoot Resort and Golf is located in North Myrtle Beach along the Carolina Bays section of the Grand Strand.

This ultra-challenging course is truly a Dye original. In addition to his use of the native grasses, the Dye Course also utilizes the GN-1 Bermuda hybrid on the fairways, centipede and Zoysia roughs, a Tifdwarf Bermudagrass on the approaches and Champion UltraDwarf on the greens. All of that precision helps couple memorable moments with a challenging round. The “member” tees play at 6,005 yards. There are also the “Championship” tees, set at 6,634 yards and the “Tournament” tees, the 7,343-yard challenge that equates to the second-longest 18 on the Grand Strand. Regardless of which tees are played, the Dye Course is one that rewards the skilled while punishing the unprepared. Either way, players will have a consistent reminder of exactly why they played this picturesque course. The 368-yard, par-4 No. 18 is as solid as any. With water on the right and mounds and traps on the right, it has developed into one of the most photographed holes in South Carolina.

The Dye Course at Barefoot Resort and Golf recently received an overall rating of 8.1 from reviewers at Myrtle Beach Golf Insider. The course also received higher marks on its tees and greens, as well as exceptional marks for its pro shop. The only semi-private course at Barefoot, this Pete Dye design was also recently named the 2013 “Best You Can Play on the Grand Strand” by the S.C. Golf Ratings Panel. That organization also named it the eighth best course on the Grand Strand in 2008. Additionally, Dye has also been honored as the 14th best course in Myrtle Beach by Golf Digest (2010), the 99th best course nationally by Golf Digest in 2009, a “100 Must-Play Course of the Carolinas” by Golfstyles Magazine in 2006.

Gregg (Garden City, NY)


One of the toughest courses I’ve played. Very windy, small greens, a great challenge for us regular golfers. Absolutely loved the place. Can’t wait to come back next year.

David (Columbia, MD)


Lots of water shots

Michael (North Myrtle Beach, SC)


Yesterday we held our 4th Annual John Polutnik Memorial Tournament at The Dye. 52 players and guests enjoyed the course and facilities. The course was in great condition and all the staff contributed to this event being a resounding success. Thank you.

Rossie (Manassas, VA)


Nice place to have a special round. Always in good shape. Classy.

Don (Frisco, TX)


One of the best courses I’ve played in quite some time. Course layout presented challenges on nearly every hole, yet they were fair enough that golfers of all abilities could still enjoy a great round. Greens and fairways were in tremendous condition!

James (North Canton , OH)


Always love playing the Dye Course. A true Pete Dye golf course that demands a lot of good golf shots.

Dave (Roswell, GA)


Wonderful golf course. We played 5 of the top courses in Myrtle and this was the best of the 5. Turf in fairways was lush and thick, ball sat up nicely. Very intimidating with lots of huge bunkers, water and waste areas. However fairways were generous- if you made good swings and were straight, you could score. Greens ran fast and true, service was excellent.

Brad (Littleton, CO)


Great golf course - challenging but very playable

Trent (West Jordan, UT)


The greens very difficult.

William (Centerburg, OH)


The greens were aerated recently and it would have been nice to know prior to booking in May or at least before we play there so we could cancel and play some place else. At the very least we should have gotten a discount or money credited to my credit card. I did not think the course was in good enough shape to justify the price we paid.



Nice course. Good condition and great value if you play on a Wednesday. Definitely worth a visit.

Iain (Denny, UK)


More like a UK course than US I liked the fact that off the white tees you didn't have to drive the ball huge distances to play the course.I enjoyed the par 3s.

Jonathan (Pittsburgh, PA)


Favorite holes: 4, 6, 10, 18. Unique: Never have I ever been told to play slower on a golf course. As a 2some is playing behind a 4some, I expect to have a few periods of waiting throughout the day. I do not expect to be told to play slower by a ranger while proper etiquette is being followed. I can't comprehend what inspired the ranger to approach or monitor our ability to stay on pace with the group ahead of us. Especially as a 2 following a 4. Totally unique experience. Great golf course. A fair yet challenging test.

John (Chesapeake, VA)


Exceptionally well-conditioned course - better than Kingsmill's LPGA River Course. Extremely courteous and helpful staff. Typical Dye layout - you are either on a tee box, in the fairway, on a green or in sand.



Typical Pete Dye design that we enjoyed playing. Tough but fair if played from the correct set of tees based on handicap. Can see how this would not be fun if played from yardage longer than you normally play. Conditions in line with all other of the Barefoot courses we played this week.

Mark (New Bedford, MA)


Very wet conditions, needs better drainage. No drink cart due to the conditions with no water on the course



Great shape tee to green. Played 8/22/15. Beautiful layout. Greens rolled true & somewhat fast, not super fast though. Lots of fairway bunkers. Fair but challenging. Will definitely play again.

Mike (Matthews, NC)


The course was fabulous. Nothing much to say other than that.

Jeff (Hastings, MN)


Fabulous course.



Play the Dye course for our final round of the week. Out of all the Barefoot courses the Dye course is as close to 10 as possible. Greens were great. Fairways were great. Rough was fair. Sand was played as waste bunkers. Overall a great experience.

Chad (Greenville, SC)


Fun course that demands respect if playing from back tees. Greens were in great shape but pace of play was slow due to high volume.

Jason (Masury, OH)


Tee markers would have been nice.

John (Albany, NY)


The nicest course that I have ever played on. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Beautiful course in excellent shape from tee to green. It was a very hot day and when we finished, the starter had a cold towel waiting for us. While we cooled down, he cleaned our clubs. Very nice. Would most definitely recommend this course.

Carl (Birmingham, AL)


Great in the clubhouse but not very nice starters. Second year in a row for this problem.

John (South Bend, IN)


Excellent experience.



The flagship Barefoot course. As mid handicappers from the UK we enjoyed the layout with some real challenging pin positions. The Tees were in good condition along with fairways and bunkers / waste areas. The downside without doubt were the greens, they were awful due to the unseasonable cold weather. We wouldn't be happy paying the full green fee for the greens to be in that condition though we stayed at the Yacht club villas which had a great deal on with the Barefoot courses.



Played Fazio last year, decided to try Dye this year. The course is in rough shape, they said it has been raining quite a bit which is fine but apparently the drainage on this course is non existent. The bunkers (not the waste areas) were 50-60% mud and many areas around them were dead. For a course that is very bunker heavy this makes for a pretty unenjoyable round. I like tough courses but the course can't be both tough and in this shape. I played it on their Wednesday deal which cut the price down to near $100 but for that it's still overpriced. We played World Tour today and while their greens were in tough shape the course was head and shoulders better for $101. The Dye greens were also pretty slow. Coming in from CT (where golf is generally expensive) i can play courses that are in better shape back home (right now.. after the worst winter in 10 years) for $75. The staff was great, no complaints at all. My issue is more a cost to quality issue. Was really looking forward to this course too, had heard great things.

Daren (Thorofare, NJ)


The course was not in very good shape especially the greens which had bare spots. Not at all what I expected when paying $105.00. I played on two other courses earlier in the week which were in far better shape and cost less than half the price.

Fred (Newton Center, MA)


Outstanding course. Lived up to its reputation. hard but fair. I play to an 18 but putted well on terrific greens and got the ball up and down from around the greens and out of nicely maintained traps. Shot a 79 on a course i thought I would not break 90 on. Took advantage of risk/reward options from the tee which helped when I drove the ball well that day.

Brian (Ocean City, MD)


We played all (4) courses at Barefoot Landing including Barefoot Dye the last day. What an ending to a great trip. I would rate this course one of the best in Myrtle Beach, if not the best. Absolutely beautiful. The one thing we noticed on all four courses, was that the actual distances seemed longer than the GPS & score card was reading, but that was not a problem. We adjusted.

Dennis (Mount Pleasant, SC)


Beautiful course. Excellent facilities, nice people, great pace of play.



One of the best in Myrtle Beach, In very good condition! Exceptional layout by Dye!!!

John (Pittsburgh, PA)



John (Roscoe, IL)


A must play when in Myrtle Beach, A very fair course depending on which tees you play.

Jim (Kansas City, KS)



M/M (Callingwood, Ontario)


Very good.

Richard (Pittsburgh, PA)


This is a Pete Dye course, all right. Visually intimidating, yet totally fair if you can manage to play within your own game. All parts of the course, from pro shop to tees to bunkers and greens were immaculate. Can't wait to play again.

Neil (Houston, TX)


First time to play the Dye course. Liked it, everything was first class.

Keir (Rittman, OH)


Greens were in poor condition. Holes were falling in on sides and were likely not moved for several days. A lot of weeds in course.

Alex (Muncie, IN)


Really liked playing at the Pete dye course. Very fun experience. Very nice course. People in front of me played extremely slow. About 40 minutes off pace.that was pretty annoying. Course and customer service were excellent!

Tom (Lexington, SC)



Tom (Ooltewah, TN)


The fairways still had winter kill, and the greens were slow.

Mark (Swanley, KT)


Very poor greens and bunkers for the money. Did not meet our expectations with bunkers, greens and wasteland having the same amount of sand.

Brian (Whitby, ON)


We were informed that only a couple of greens were being punched-more like most greens-we would not play it again in that shape. Course design is great however.

Ralph (Philadelphia, PA)


The Barefoot courses are a challenge to play. The courses are exceptional and well worth the cost to play.

Robert (Chesterfield, NJ)


Good layout and condition, unfortunately we had a cold windy day

Dario (Morris Plains, NJ)


Tough course but the rangers keep the pace of play moving. Good condition and very enjoyable.

Keith (East Falmouth, MA)


I realize the weather has been an issue, Hopefully the greens will improve for next year !

Joe (Havertown, PA)



David (Wrightsville Beach, NC)


Great layout, Very fair but challenging course if played from the correct tees.
