Seven holes along the Intracoastal Waterway highlight Greg Norman's design at Barefoot Resort framed by the site's original vegetation; each hole enhances the beauty of its natural vistas. Combined with open green complexes and fairways running up to the sand, the Norman course presents a stunning challenge for any golfer. The Norman Course is a Par 72, approximately 7,200 yards long and was designed with Norman's philosophy to bring into play the "bump and run" shots around the greens. This will give the player the option to play a number of different shots. The greens are gently undulating and consist of an average green area of 6,300 square feet. The green surfaces consist of a Champion UltraDwarf Grass. Tees and Fairway consist of GN-1, which is a hybrid turf developed by Greg Norman Turf. The approach areas are Tifdwarf grass.
