“Building a course with your family name on it is a great responsibility. Building a course that will uphold the tradition of the game is an even greater responsibility.”
So when PGA Tour veteran Davis Love III decided to put his name to one of the four award-winning designs at Barefoot Resort & Golf, he looked immediately to a nearby, venerable Tour venue as his inspiration.
For the Love Course at Barefoot Resort, he thought of Pinehurst No. 2 – with a twist.
The legendary North Carolina layout was the model for the design crew assigned by Love to emulate with much of Love’s signature design at Barefoot Resort & Golf. As such, the greens complexes at the Love Course feature many mounded putting surfaces with large collection areas.
The “twist” comes with the additional visual elements that Love incorporates, and Hole #4 on this design encapsulates it with both a scenic backdrop and a compelling playing option for the big bombers.
Hole #4 at the Love Course is probably the design’s most photographed hole, with the recreated ruins of a 17th Century plantation house that serves as the memorable backdrop to the green for this hole, as well as for Hole #6.
At 294 yards from the tips and 265 from the middle tees, this par 4 is absolutely reachable off the tee for the longer hitters. The challenge comes into play if/when you miss the green – and that’s where the large wall from these ruins becomes a factor. Long hitters run the risk of either driving your ball through the green and against it, requiring a redirected chip save; ricocheting off of it, with your shot’s final resting place a mystery; or going over it, necessitating a flop shot back over the wall to get back onto the putting surface.
With all the possibilities here, one thing is certain: you’ll have lots of fun playing it for the first time, and a lifetime to remember the experience!
