Now that the crowds have settled down, talk about one of the most popular North Myrtle Beach tourist resorts has started up. On November 15, 2010, The North Myrtle Beach Department of Public Works and The City Council will get together to discuss the available options for painting  the Barefoot Swing Bridge. What’s the big deal about a painting a bridge you say? For those who don’t know, the Barefoot Swing Bridge is the direct yellow brick road to get to the popular Barefoot golf accommodations.

Just a short walk away from the world famous Barefoot courses designed by Pete Dye, Davis Love III, Tom Fazio and Greg Norman, the Barefoot golf accommodations are a must visit by golfers of all skill levels. Test your game as you navigate the Tidewarf grass-laden fairways of the Norman course. Look for perfect placement between treacherous bunkers and unforgiving water hazards on the famous 10th hole of award-winning Dye Course. Or simply hang around to see who had the best couple of rounds…at the 35,000 square foot Barefoot Resort Clubhouse. There are many reasons that attract golfers from around the world to Barefoot courses year after year.

But if you think you have to be into golf to enjoy a fun vacation in North Myrtle Beach, think again. The Barefoot Resort Villas & Golf accommodations are only a walk away from some of the best shopping and dining the North Myrtle Beach area has to offer. Explore all 27-acres of the most unique shopping experience as you walk the boardwalk of Barefoot Landing. Get in touch with nature as you connect with wildlife at Alligator Adventure. Or lose all track of time with the vibe of good music at the House of Blues. And when you’re exhausted from all the fun you could possibly handle, retreat to your two or three bedroom golf villa overlooking the harbor.

It’s all this fun and excitement that attracts so many visitors, and locals alike to Barefoot Resort & Golf, which is why the spotlight is on the painting of the Barefoot Bridge. The community will be voicing their opinion on two options. One, to keep one lane open and squeak traffic through for six or seven months. Or completely shut the bridge down and get the project over in six to eight weeks. It is a big decision that will impact both Barefoot visitors as well as travelers, and everyone is invited to weigh in.
