Arrived at course 10 minutes before tee time, staff was very inviting and helpful facilitating verification of Golf Now arrangements, very spot on. Course was great in layout, overseeded fairways little coarse, but to be expected. Greens were consistent and fair, in very good shape. Will definitely be back to play West Course. Highly recommended for any level of golfer.

Had a good time! The course has a nice layout; nice mix of water, sand and natural areas. Conditions were good especially given the time of year (Dec 26th). We were running a bit late so weren't able to use the practice areas - so can't really comment on this but looked OK. Worst part of the course is the condition of the cath paths. Pace of play was excellent; no waiting at all. Used GolfNow to book the round and got an excellent rate.

This course was the best course we have played since arriving in MB. Totally enjoyed this course and the finishing holes are really great. However, we did have a few issues with slow play both times we played. Not sure why, as we never encountered this issue on the East course when we played twice there. Found the condition of the course to be pretty good and the best we had encountered since arriving in MB. The only course we found in better condition for the month was when we played Fazio at Barefoot. I would recommend the East and West courses as a good place to play for the money and would go back and play them again.

The round was very slow. At times there were as many as five groups on one hole.

Green speed was inconsistent. Top dressed with sand leaving clumps of sand all over the greens.

Still in need of some cleanup after Matthew.

Cart paths in bad shape.

I rated the course condition a 3 only because of the amount of water after the rains. They said they've had 14" of rain this year and 7" in the last 2 weeks of September, we were told to expect a wet course. So they can't avoid that, however the water was managed excellent, we played a few other courses and Pearl West was by far the driest course we played. Had it not been a downpour for the week before we played, the condition of the course would've been 5 star. Definitely a great course, would highly recommend it. Mixes distance with precision shots well. Great layout, friendly staff that really helped out. The grounds crew were doing everything they could to get the water off the course and it showed. They did as well as they could with the amount of rain in the past week.

Had played the East prior but first time on the West; the Pearl has 36 fun holes of golf. Played Pearl West on Labor Day which was a few days after a tropical storm doused the area. So the greens were very soft and very slow. Lots of water on the course and most bunkers had standing water. Otherwise the course was in good shape with only a few greens with bare spots and few spotty tee boxes. Good layout with a nice variety of lengths with all par 5s being on the long side. Nice finishing scenic holes along the Calabash river.

Only complaint was that I had intentionally booked the 1st tee time (7:30) as a single on GolfNow with the intent of playing in 2 1/2 hours. When I arrived at the course they said they had a policy of no singles off as the 1st tee time and had me wait for a twosome that had the 8:00 time. Still got around in about 3 1/2 hours and enjoyed the pairing.

My father and I played the West course, the course had a very good layout with fairly tight drives on the front 9 and a little more open on the back. The problem was that the greens had been saturated and balls plugged on every green, the largest plugs I have ever seen actually. The greens were spotty and threadbare in spots as well. It wasn't very expensive so not terrible for the money. The starters were very helpful, we did have the first time of the day so that might account for the soggy green conditions.
