The Rules of Golf make the Dye Course now more enjoyable to play

USGA Rules Of Golf 12-1a

Rule 12-1a deals with searching for or identifying a ball that is covered by sand, anywhere on the course. The player is now entitled to touch or move as much sand as is deemed necessary to find or identify his ball. Once the ball has been properly found and identified, any sand that was moved must be replaced in order to re-create the original lie. Should the ball be moved, and it can be proven that the movement was directly attributable to the touching or moving of the sand to find or identify his ball, there is no penalty, and the ball must be replaced and the original lie re-created. In re-creating the lie under this Rule, the player is now allowed to leave a small part of the ball visible. 
The old rule states that you were only able to touch the sand in a hazard but not outside the hazard. The old rule did not allow the player opportunity to move the sand at all as sand and loose soil are not loose impediments except on the putting green. Remember the 2010 PGA Championship at Whistling Straights, a Pete Dye designed course, when the PGA deemed all sandy areas was to be defined as bunkers. We all remember what happen to our very own Dustin Johnson when he was penalized for grounding his club in what was deemed by the PGA as a bunker.  

We at The Dye Club at Barefoot Resort & Golf, another Pete Dye designed gem where naturally occurring sandy  areas are prevalent throughout the course, have made a local rule stating that all bunkers are considered sandy areas “through the green”. By using this approach we eliminate the problem of defining one area of sand as a hazard and another adjoining sandy area as “through the green”. This also eliminates the possibility that players mistake what condition they are in by making all conditions the same and consistent. Players are now allowed to move loose impediments and to ground their club in these sandy areas. 

  Treating all sandy areas as “through the green” is somewhat contradictory to the rules regarding what defines a bunker, but we at The Dye Club have adopted the new Rule change to allow the players the options that were not available back in 2010. With this new Rule 12-1a, we hope it will give each and every player a more enjoyable experience as they play this hidden gem known as The Dye Course at Barefoot Resort.

Greg Norman Champions Golf Academy Grand Opening

On August 21, 2012 The Range at Barefoot announced the grand opening of the Greg Norman's Champions Golf Academy. The 10,000-square-foot clubhouse is believed to be the second largest golf academy in the U.S. It houses a gym featuring Cybex equipment, two classrooms, one meeting room, boys and girls locker rooms, three covered indoor/outdoor hitting bays, six offices, and a club repair and storage room.

"We've been here for two years with the Greg Norman Academy and its going well, and we're so excited to move to Barefoot," said academy owner Juan Manuel Fernandez, who moved to the Grand Strand from Mexico a couple years ago. "I believe it will be a huge opportunity for the kids around here and overseas. Hopefully we can move it forward and get it in the shape Greg wants it."

The practice area includes a driving range that has a hitting area approximately 75 yards long and 25 yards deep, and 14 measured target greens. It also includes an 8,000-square-foot putting green, 1,000-square-foot flat putting green, 6,000-square-foot chipping green, and three practice bunkers with greens set up for 10-, 30-, 45- and 70-yard shots.

Scott Shobe is the director of instruction, as he has been for a few years at the Long Bay Club academy. Workers are still putting the finishing touches on some of the rooms, and Shobe’s staff will begin utilizing the building Monday.

Touring pro Sam Lyons, a graduate of North Myrtle Beach High and Coastal Carolina, has been receiving instruction at the academy at the Long Bay location since November. “I think they have a great future here with the new building. I’m very impressed with everything,” Lyons said. “I think they’ll draw a lot more students because it’s in a better place. … It’s a great building; a great place to get better.”

The academy has an agreement with Barefoot Golf Resort for student rounds on its four courses and student meals at either the Barefoot clubhouse or an incoming restaurant that is taking up the space vacated by the recently closed Barefoot Bar & Grill.

The academy will have hourly and day lessons for the general public, and has 15 full-time students this school year between the ages of 14 and 21 that are living in The Farm in Carolina Forest, as well as several touring pros who receive instruction. On-site housing may be built in the future.

Golf isn’t the only thing we make accommodating. With Barefoot’s centralized location there is a plethora of things to choose from, all within a short drive from the complex. If you're looking for nightlife House of Blues (1.1 mi), 2001 (4.8 mi) and Zulu Lounge (5.4 mi) will fill your needs. Each one offers daily and nightly specials.

Dye Course closure is Looming. BOGO 50% OFF at the Dye Club Pro Shop

Barefoot Resort & Golf is continuing to improve its already impressive multi-course facility, by moving forward in 2012 and converting the remaining two courses. In 2011 we underwent green renovations to both the Fazio and Norman courses. With rave reviews, management has decided to complete the process and convert the remaining two courses (Dye,Love) this upcoming summer. The Dye Course will be closed starting May 21st and reopen by July 16th.

In case you are unfamiliar with our renovation, we are converting our greens from Bentgrass to Champion UltraDwarf. The company that is in charge of conducting the renovation is Champion Turf Farms founded by Morris Brown. The process used for the conversion is called No-Till Renovation. No-Till Renovation™ is the process of changing the grass variety on a putting green without reconstructing the existing surface. The end result of the process is that the green contours are exactly as they were before, but with a uniform, 100% stand of Champion. The resulting putting surface is dramatically improved by the inherent characteristics of Champion because Champion provides the best ball roll of any bermudagrass cultivar. To learn more about this process visit: Champion Turf Farms- No Till Renovation. During last year's renovations on the Fazio Course, we compiled a time lapse video from start to finish. If you are interested in the process head on over to our YouTube Channel: Fazio Restoration.

(Welcome Sign)
During the course closure the Dye Clubhouse and Pro Shop will remain open to the general public and its guests. Going on now through the renovation the Pro Shop at the Dye Club is having a blowout Sale! All soft goods in the shop are BOGO (Buy One Get One) 50% OFF. All clubs will be reduced to 25% OFF. The pro shop will be open seven days a week from 7a.m. to For directions and questions please call the pro shop directly at 843-399-7238. The restaurant at the Dye Club during that time will be conducting weekly  Themed Night dinners along with tantalizing Happy Hour Specials. If you would like to sign up for one of the upcoming events or inquire in more detail, please call the Dye restaurant at 843-390-8446.
(Dye Clubhouse view from #18)
Time is running out to play the Dye Course one last time before it will be forever changed. As with any major renovation the course will never be the same. Call and book a tee time before its to late. The final date for open play will be Sunday, May 20th, 2012. Already people are jumping on the opportunity to play the Dye Course in it's original glory. What are you waiting for!?!? Call the Dye Club pro shop at 843-399-7238 to book your tee time today. Remember to ask about our ongoing specials...We hope to see you soon!

Slow Play is a Golf Course KILLER!!!

Barefoot Resort & Golf strives to provide a top notch facility for both their members and customers. We constantly are refining our ways and are taking our guests suggestions and putting them to good use. We here along the Grand Strand are full swing into our "peak" season and it becomes known very quickly which areas of your facility need refinement. During "peak" season many courses receive a bad rap solely based upon the facilities pace of play. Being around a golf course day in and day out, you hear some horror stories. 

Barefoot's employees challenged one another by improving on our track record. Management from all departments got together and put in place firmer policies and procedures. We realized that this was going to be a team effort and our staff in all facets, has stepped up to the challenge. Our main objective is for all of our guests to enjoy the experience and have their expectations of our golf courses and our service be fulfilled and exceeded. Since our initiative, we have seen our monthly average pace of play not once exceed the 4:30 minute mark. One should note that this was also accomplished with roughly 20% more business than the previous year. The following holds true for both complexes:

Resort (Norman, Love, Fazio)
January - 4:14
February - 4:11
March - 4:24

January - 4:08
February - 4:10
March - 4:19

Below is test to see if you are slow golfer...
It is a fact that we have all had to endure the company of slow golfers from time to time. The one thing that all slow golfers have in common is that they do not see that they are the slow ones. A comment like "nobody is pushing us" is the favorite expression of the slow golfer. Nobody is pushing you because they either went home or they jumped you. It is your job to stay up with the group in front of you, not ahead of the group behind you. If you are unsure of what category you fit into, I have come up with a test... 
  1.  You might be a slow golfer if ... you wait in your cart for your partner to hit, so he can drive you six yards to your ball.
  2. You might be a slow golfer if ... when it is your turn, you are not even close to being ready, i.e., the guy beside you is running down the fairway after his hat and you are throwing up grass to see if there is any wind.
  3. You might be a slow golfer if ... you leave your cart and walk 50 yards to your ball (in an effort to ascertain some mysterious information) and then make the journey back to select 3 clubs from your bag.
  4. You might be a slow golfer if ... you spend quite a bit of time discerning that you have 245 to the hole and not 243, despite the fact that you have not hit it either 245 or 243 since 1962.
  5.  You might be a slow golfer if ... you have decided for a multitude of reasons that you are not going to follow the trend of buying a gps system ... but when someone in the group has one, you will make them come over and give you a reading for everyone of your shots that day.
  6. You might be a slow golfer if ... you are quite happy to use a delegation to help you read a triple-breaking, 45-ft putt.  Seriously, who are you kidding?
  7.  You might be a slow golfer if ... you are of the opinion that each golf course employs 18 rangers and that explains why there is always one on the hole that you are playing.
  8.  You might be a slow golfer if ... you hear comments like "Get off the green," "What now?" or the doozie, "You are without question, the slowest golfer that I have ever seen." These might be indicators to look out for.
Pearse Mahon,
Oak Ridge, NC

If you have taken the test and one of the above categories fits you to a tee, here are some recommendations to get you around the golf course just a little bit quicker...

Here are some tips for speeding up slow play on the golf course:
  • Choose the correct set of tees from which to play. If you're a 20-handicapper, you have no business playing the championship tees. Doing so only adds strokes, which add time.
  • Members of a group should not travel as a pack, with all members walking together to the first ball, then the second, and so on. Each member of the group should walk directly to his own ball.
  • When two players are riding in a cart, drive the cart to the first ball and drop off the first player with his choice of clubs. The second player should proceed in the cart to his ball. After the first player hits his stroke, he should begin walking toward the cart as the second golfer is playing.
  • Use the time you spend getting to your ball to think about the next shot - the yardage, the club selection. When you reach your ball you'll need less time to figure out the shot.
  • If you are unsure whether your ball has come to rest out of bounds, or may be lost, immediately hit a provisional ball so that you won't have to return to the spot to replay the shot. If you are playing a recreational match with, shall we say, a "loose interpretation" of the rules, then simply drop a new ball somewhere around the area where your ball was lost and keep playing (taking a penalty, of course).
  • If you're following the rules, you won't be using mulligans. But if are using mulligans, limit them to no more than one mulligan per nine (you should never hit a mulligan if players behind you are waiting - or if you want to later claim that you played by the rules).
  •  Begin reading the green and lining up putts as soon as you reach the green. Don't wait until it's your turn to putt to start the process of reading the green. Do it as soon as you reach the green so that when it's your turn you can step right up and putt.
  •  Never delay making a stroke because you're having a conversation with a playing partner. Put the conversation on hold, make your stroke, then pick up the conversation again.
  •  If using a cart on a cart-path-only day, take more than one club with you when you walk from the cart to your ball. Getting to the ball only to find out you don't have the right club is a huge time-waster on the golf course.
  • After putting out, don't stand around the green chatting or take any practice putting strokes. Leave the green quickly so the group behind can play. If there is no group behind, then a few practice putts are fine.
  •  When leaving the green and returning to your golf cart, don't stand there fussing with your putter or other clubs. Get in the cart, drive to the next tee, and then put away your putter.
  • Likewise, mark your scorecard after reaching the next tee, not while lingering on or near the just-completed green.
  • When using a cart, never park the cart in front of the green. Park it only to the side or behind the green. And don't mark your scorecard while sitting in the cart next to the green (do it at the next tee). These practices open up the green for the group behind.
  •  If you're the type who likes to offer tips to playing partners, save it for the driving range - or only do so on the course when you're sure that you're not slowing down play (and sure that you're not annoying your partners!).
  • If you are searching for a lost ball and are willing to spend a few minutes looking for it, allow the group behind to play through. If you are playing a friendly game where rules aren't followed closely, just forget the lost ball and drop a new one (with penalty). If you're not playing by the rules, you should never spend more than a minute looking for a lost ball.
  •  Don't ask your playing partners to help you search for a lost ball - unless you are absolutely certain there is time for them to do so (e.g., there is no group behind waiting). If the course is crowded, your partners should continue moving forward, not slow things down further by stopping to help your search.
  •  On the tee, pay attention to your partners' drives. If they lose sight of their ball, you can help direct them to it and avoid any searching.
  •  When waiting on the tee for the group in front to clear the fairway, don't be so strict about order of play. Let the short hitter - who can't reach the group ahead anyway - go ahead and hit.
  •  Work on building a concise pre-shot routine. If your pre-shot routine is a lengthy one, it's probably in your best interests to shorten it anyway. Limit practice strokes to one or two at the most.
  •  Leave your cell phone in the car.
  • Carry extra tees, ball markers and an extra golf ball in your pockets so you never have to return to your golf bag to find one when needed.
  • When chipping around the green, carry both the club you'll be chipping with plus your putter so you don't have to return to the bag.
  • Try playing ready golf, where order of play is based on who's ready, not on who's away.
