In every city or county, there are always one or two neighborhoods that are the showpiece for the area. Everyone would love to live there, and often show it off to their friends and family when they visit.
North Myrtle Beach’s prize community is Barefoot Resort, and even though a home there can be quite affordable, its residents often mention the name with pride.
Four famous architects, Greg Norman, Pete Dye, Tom Fazio and Davis Love III got together in 1998 and designed four championship golf courses, making use of unincorporated land on the outskirts of North Myrtle Beach and the Intracoastal Waterway which ran through the acreage. A few years earlier, Barefoot Landing – one of the most unique and enticing outdoor shopping complexes around – was built next to the proposed site, which added even more desirability to the project.
