Matthew, a Category 1 Hurricane made landfall just south of Pawley’s Island on Sunday, October 9. We were very fortunate here at Barefoot. Many people and businesses in the surrounding areas, were not as fortunate as us.
For Barefoot Resort & Golf, cleanup began early Sunday morning as the hurricane passed Myrtle Beach and pushed further out into the ocean. Many trees were down, standing water where the storm drains were clogged and a lot of the bunkers were washed out or had standing water. Our maintenance team worked non-stop all week, getting the golf courses back in the condition they were before the storm.
We opened the Love Course and Dye course on Monday following the storm. By Wednesday we had all four courses opened. Shockingly enough we were cart path only on a limited amount of holes, with the majority of the golf course already riding fairways. By the weekend most parts of the golf courses had little to no signs a hurricane passed through just a week prior.
The fall is one of the best kept secrets in Myrtle Beach. Enjoy beautiful weather, average highs in the mid to upper 70’s with almost no humidity. For people coming on a fall golf trip or plan on coming visiting in the near future, we are fully operational and are back to the course conditions we had pre-storm. The Myrtle Beach area and golf courses have come together during this difficult time. It is a testament to how great our community is.
We would like to thank all of our members and guests for their patience and understanding as we work through this difficult time. You will be impressed with the condition of the courses. We look forward to seeing you soon.
