International honor for Myrtle Beach golf facility

​​                                                              Barefoot Resort & Golf, home to a quartet of courses designed by Greg Norman, Davis Love III, Tom Fazio and Pete Dye, has                                                               been named North American Golf Resort of the Year by the International Association of Golf Tour Operators (IAGTO).

                                                              “We are honored to have won this award and it’s a testament to the entire team at Barefoot Resort, beginning with the                                                                               ownership of the Puglia family and their dedication to making Barefoot a premier resort,” said Dave Genevro, Barefoot’s                                                                         General Manager. 

                                                             “Barefoot Resort & Golf is richly deserving of this honor,” said Bill Golden, President of Myrtle Beach Golf Holiday. “The golf                                                              courses are outstanding, but what really helps separate Barefoot from a crowded field of America’s best resorts is the attention                                                                paid to customer service, conditioning and delivering an experience – on and off the course – golfers fondly remember long                                                                    after they’ve headed home.”

In 2000, Barefoot Resort became the first American facility to open four courses simultaneously and it has delivered on its immense promise. The Love, Fazio and Dye Courses have all been ranked among America’s top public layouts and the Norman Course, with seven holes that play along the Intracoastal Waterway, might be the most visually pleasing.

Barefoot succeeded Arnold Palmer’s Bay Hill, a long-time PGA Tour host, as the winner of the award.
