Based on his list of played courses, I'm actually curious what courses are considered barefoot-friendly.
Horizons Park in Winston Salem, Cedar Rock in Burlington, ECU course in Greenville all come to mind a "bare foot friendly"

It has been a couple of years but I used to see several barefoot discers in and around Raleigh on courses that I would not consider barefoot friendly.

Thanks for elaborating.

Nonetheless, knowing there's a possibility of incurring gunfire is quite a handy piece of info to have whilst planning a round.

Very seldom a consideration for most courses.

The Pro Shop operator at Mountain Lake DGC (RIP) told us to wear blaze orange to avoid being shot during hunting season.

I've played Creekside in Archdale barefoot a couple of times but that wasn't entirely my preference. Guys that go barefoot all the time can play lots of courses though b/c their hobbit feet can go through broken glass.

They can be as annoying as walkers or people picnicking in the fairway..... those hunters that shoot at you during a round. I will keep an eye out for a new fad in the reviews.

Cons: bugs in the summer, no restroom and hunters shooting at you. Besides that, I think it's fun day in the park.

Not to get all, religiony, but man created shoes. Just sayin'


I only played barefoot once (well, two rounds but one outing) and it was in the pine barrens of very northern Delaware like you'd find in New Jersey - for those unfamiliar it's mostly sand and prehistoric looking plants/trees. Aside from that specific course (Cape Henlopen State Park) I don't see myself ever playing barefoot again. Those photos are pretty outdated FWIW.

I do frequently barefoot while camping/fishing/kayaking for days at a time. That's my decision though, it would never reflect a review of a place from my perspective.

The more I think about it, the more I like the idea of playing in bear feet. They last for decades and provide positive grip on slippery slopes. Not to mention you can snag fish from rivers with them.

The newest review at the top of the home page, Ridgecrest in Ridgecrest, NC, may be the worst review I have ever read on this website.

the downside of having bear feet is the number of socks and shoes you go through when you are forced to wear conventional attire.
