The northern section of the Grand Strand includes North Myrtle Beach and Little River, South Carolina. The area offers a variety of spectacular championship courses including the highly-rated Barefoot Resort courses.
Barefoot Resort and Golf is home to four world-class courses: The Dye Course, designed by Pete Dye, is a visually stunning course filled with Dye's infamous pitfalls for wayward shots. The Fazio Course, designed by Tom Fazio, offers stunning visuals and 18 distinct holes that golfers will remember well after their round is over. The Love Course, designed by Davis Love III, is unique, visually striking and fun to play. The Norman Course, designed by Greg Norman, uses stunning waste areas and the site's natural vegetation to frame each hole.
One of the most beautiful golf courses that the Grand Strand has to offer, the Tidewater Golf Club & Plantation, is nestled between the Intracoastal Waterway and the Atlantic Ocean. A Ken Tomlinson design, Tidewater is truly a work of art overlooking the saltwater marshes with challenging holes and breathtaking scenery. Tidewater is one of the best golf courses on the Grand Strand with accolades that include Golf Magazine's and Golf Digest's "Best New Public Course in America", Golf Digest's "America's Top 1OO Greatest Public Courses", Golf Magazine's "Best Courses Near You" and Golfweek's "Best Courses You Can Play".
