All staff were very friendly and knowledgeable. Time of year with storms made conditions wet. Understandable.

Review #5831

I expected better conditions at The Pearl West Course based on the numerous positive reviews. However, the tees are atrocious - they are not level and the grass is poorly maintained (where there is grass); overall, the condition of the tees is no better than the grass in a backyard.

The greens are really soft. However, they are so slow that the putting is similar to putting at a municipal course.

Thankfully, the fairways and rough are in excellent condition.

Overall, we expect better conditions for a golf course in the Myrtle Beach area.

The greens were fantastic. By far the best greens we played on the entire week. Unfortunately the tee boxes were mostly terrible. Several had only sand, not any grass. The fairways were ok, not great.

The guy in the pro shop, was extremely helpful and very nice. The attendants didn't give us any information about the course, just sent our group off to play.

Another North Carolina course with hard greens. If the courses don't make the greens more receptive, I can see the tourists going elsewhere. Although hard greens need less maintenance, they're not condusive to getting much repeat business.

Wide open fairways, enough trouble to make it fun, generally well kept. The greens were not in the best shape this year, but still a nice course to start our week off.

Review #3505

It was cold at tee time (39 degrees), but we were able to get out of the wind on ##3. Traditional Carolina course, with pine tree-lined fairways and doglegs. A couple of interesting holes, but otherwise pretty straight forward. The greens on the West were pretty nice--cut, rolled and rolling true. Although nice, not a premium MB course...pretty average in comparison. The grill was okay with mediocre service. Good course to start your golf trip to get warmed up for other more difficult courses.

Good, not-too-difficult everyday course. Lacks character or looks to be considered to the same level as some better courses in the same area. Still a good value.
