Representatives from Barefoot Resort & Golf in North Myrtle Beach, S.C., announced that the Love Course at Barefoot Resort reopened for play on June 1, while the Fazio Course at Barefoot Resort will resume play on July 1.
Both courses suffered cosmetic damage to the trees, plants and access bridges when a wildfire damaged the area on April 23, but neither received any damage to the course.
The Love Course reopened Saturday, April 25, as soon as the Barefoot Resort Bridge was cleared for traffic, utilizing 15 holes on the Love Course and three holes from the Fazio Course. The Love Course closed on April 28 to allow time for crews to repair the access bridges damaged by the fire. The Fazio Course has not reopened after losing two bridges during the fire. The Dye Club and the Norman Courses were not affected by the wildfires and remained open for play.
“We are very pleased with the condition of both the Love and Fazio courses and look forward to their reopening,” said Dave Genevro, General Manager of Barefoot Resort & Golf. “The access bridge on Love Course has been restored and the Fazio bridges are now being repaired. Both courses underwent aeration in early May, so they are both in pristine condition.”
