DESCRIPTION
About Pearl East

The Pearl East Course saw a major overhaul with its 2009 renovation. The East Course serves up a traditional parkland layout with plenty of gorgeous foliage and incredible views. The Calabash River provides a stunning backdrop to finish out your round. In 2008, Golf Digest awarded the East Course a respectable 4 star rating in its rankings of “Best Places to Play.” The MiniVerde® greens were introduced in 2012 and provide a very true roll that any golfer will appreciate. As one of the more popular courses on the Grand Strand, the East Course is a must play for your next golf vacation.

"The course was in excellent condition with very challenging greens. I loved the fact that there were not any homes on the course. The last finishing holes along the Calabash River were just beautiful. I would recommend this course to any golf group. Also, the food at the grill was delicious and reasonably priced. The staff were super friendly."

"I play the Pearl quite often when I am in Calabash for the summer months. Mostly it's convenient and the course is usually in pretty good shape. In fact, it's in about as good a shape as it's been in the last few months. Greens are pretty good and so are the fairways. Rough is reasonable too. Today was the first time I've run into 5-somes playing. Now I usually go out as a single late in the morning amd don't expect any priority in play as a single. When I come behind a 4-some I simply lay back until they are done with the hole and then tee off so as not to push them. I usually just play two balls and have a nice time.Today I got behind 2 5-somes. Even given that a ranger was out riding around. The first one I simply teed off, picked up my ball and jumped ahead of them. No problem. The second one was holding up a 3-some and then I was behind the 3-some. After waiting and waiting for 5 holes I simply picked up on 18 and went to the car. I'll find another course to play while I'm up here for the summer. I must give the course a high rating the criteria they present but allowing 5-somes is just wrong. I hope that policy is worth it for them."

"The East course is a good layout but in very average condition. The greens were extremely thin. The West course was in much better condition. I was not aware at the time that I booked, that the two courses have different grass greens. The East is Bermuda and the West is bent."

"Update to my review in June. The greens have really come along and are now quite good. There are some sandy spots on some of them to further improve them. While they can come into play simply move the ball around them but it's not really a big problem. But the greens have really been improved. People really nice as usual. This is now well worth playing and very enjoyable."

"I've played this course a number of times and always get stuck on the East course. You have to book for a tee time before 9:40 to get on the West due to the grass on those greens. They look great. Not so for the East. I knew they were plugged and sanded recently but decided to play anyway. The greens on this side have always seemed sparse and just something wrong with them. They seem to be rotting and have been for some time. Plugging and sanding them aren't going to help them. Best to play the West, they looked fantastic."

"Course was in good shape. Would rate course conditions as 8 overall. Greens were about 8-9. Some thin spots on the green,but ball stilled rolled very well. All greens in the area affected by Winterkill. Even my home course in Winston Salem affected. Definitely would play this course again. Starter was very helpful. I was a single and he got me started 40 min early in front of a 12-some. This allowed me to finish my round in 3 1/2 hours. That was awesome. Very tight course. Can't spray it around too much. Challenging but still fun course to play. Very scenic."

"Played the Pearl with a group from out of town. The Pearl was in our package, and I must say, I was very impressed. Pro shop staff and bag drop staff we very professional. We played the East Course, great shape, greens were outstanding. Nothing painted here, the course was completely over-seeded. I can't wait to play the West next."

"Played the Pearl East with our regular league group. I usually don't write course reviews, but the Pearl East was in such great shape that I had to let everyone know. This is certainly a top-tier course in the Myrtle Beach area."
