The Resort features four 18-hole, championship golf courses designed by Greg Norman, Davis Love III, Tom Fazio and Pete Dye. The four courses opened by April 13, 2000.
The atmosphere of the Resort will be reminiscent of Savannah, Ga. or Charleston, S.C. with New Orleans style buildings, one way streets, and sidewalks of red brick. Specialty shops will also line downtown streets.
Barefoot Resort and Golf is comprised of more than 2,300 acres of land and will have more than 1,100 lots available for purchase. When complete, the development is projected to have a population of 10,000 to 12,000.
Both single family and multi-person dwellings will accommodate families of all sizes.
The development will feature a Town Center, a virtual "City within a City" with restaurants, supermarkets, pharmacies, gas stations, dry cleaners and specialty shops.
Many amenities will be offered to both Resort residents and visitors including a Private Beach Club and Resident?s Center, parks and natural areas, indoor and outdoor pools, and playgrounds. The Resort will also offer beaches along the Intracoastal Waterway for all to enjoy.
