Barefoot Resort & Golf offers a non-equity Family Membership to property owners in residential developments designated for membership eligibility (see Rules, Regulations and Guidelines). Owners may choose to enroll in one of two privilege levels, one including both golf and social benefits and the other offering social benefits only. Both levels necessitate payment of monthly dues. Owners must also pay an initiation or transfer fee to join, which, in the case of certain new real estate purchases, is covered by the developer. In the case of resale property, the buyer pays either a transfer or initiation fee to Barefoot Resort & Golf to secure membership depending on whether the property has a membership attached or not. The Resort Family Membership is currently valued at $20,000.
With three championship golf courses designed by Greg Norman, Davis Love III and Tom Fazio, first-rate clubhouse facilities and a state-of-the-art practice/teaching complex with massive driving range, Golf Academy, Pro Shop and Sports Bar & Grill, the Resort Family Membership is presented as one of the most affordable membership values available anywhere. Being located in close proximity to discounted shopping, dining, entertainment and the famous South Carolina Grand Strand Beaches makes the membership package that much more attractive.
Very appealing benefits are available for Resort Members including golf on the Norman, Love III and Fazio Courses for cart fee only, substantially reduced golf fees for guests accompanied by a member, discounts on merchandise and food and beverage, playing discounts on seven other area golf courses including the revered Dye Club at Barefoot and numerous discounts on merchandise and dining at area shops and restaurants. Members may upgrade from the social level to the golf level without additional fees other than increased dues. Of great significance is the fact that the membership value is attached to the property and is transferable to a new owner who pays a transfer fee of just 10% of the full value. A complete listing of benefits and privileges associated with this membership is available on a separate Benefits and Privileges page. Rules and Regulations governing the membership may also be found on a separate page.
