The Fazio Course at Barefoot Resort is routed through a spectacular piece of property in the heart of Barefoot Resort.

Like many European courses, the course does not return to the clubhouse after nine holes. It is not a British linksland course, but rather a classic Lowcountry course, filled with live oaks, pines, sand, natural areas and native grasses.

Located between the Dye Course and the Love Course, the Fazio course has been strategically designed, incorporating extensive tree cover and many lakes into the landscaping. Waste areas and formal bunkers have been handcrafted and placed for visual and strategic effect, while natural elevation changes add a sense of drama and excitement the to golfing round. Water features can be seen on 15 holes, yet many lakes are in out-of-play areas to ensure playability.

The Fazio Course is a Par 71, approximately 6,834 yards long. The course offers five sets of tees to give players of all skill levels the opportunity to play a course of championship caliber and still have the right balance of fun and challenge.

Tees and fairways consist of GN-1, which is a hybrid turf developed by Greg Norman Turf. The approach areas consist of Tif- Sport Bermuda grass and the rough areas are 419 Bermuda grass. The greens consist of a Champion UltraDwarf Grass.

Tom Fazio (born February 10, 1945) is a world-class golf course architect.

Fazio graduated in 1962 from Lansdale Catholic High School. He began his career in golf course design with his family’s firm in suburban Philadelphia, which he left in the 1960s; he established his own firm in Jupiter, Florida in 1972. He is the nephew of the late George Fazio, who often credited Tom with jump-starting his own career in golf course architecture.

Fazio has designed more than 120 courses and has more courses ranked among the top 100 in the U.S. than anyone else in the business. His individual honors include Best Modern Day Golf Course Architect, which he received from Golf Digest Magazine three times. In 1995, Fazio became only the second course architect to receive the highest recognition awarded by the Golf Course Superintendents Association of America – The Old Tom Morris Award. No living designer has more credits on Golf Digest’s list of America’s 100 Greatest Golf Courses and Golfweek’s collection of America’s Best.

Fazio was inducted into the Lansdale Catholic High School “Hall of Fame” in 2007.
