Upgrade the carts / paths - but you don't golf to test golf carts so no biggie.

This was my first visit to this course and it was a nice surprise. The course staff was very friendly and the course was in very good shape. It does have a few holes were past knowledge of the course would have been a big help.

I would definitely go back and play this course again

Greens were slow and bumpy. No rangers out to regulate play time so the foursome ahead of us just kept hacking away with 3 open holes ahead of them. Unacceptable!!! No ammenities on the east course anywhere. Never saw a cart girl and where there should be a turn shack is an empty hut. On 13 you are close enough to drive back to the clubhouse but by then what's the point

I assume the extra $10-15 for the West Course means that more time and resources are spent maintaining it over the East. Tee to green, Pearl East is a great course! The traps are great, the layout is fun, and it wasn't really busy so the more novice guys in our group did not feel rushed. Some of the greens need a little work...a few of them need a lot of work. (I noticed them watering around 1:00PM, perhaps that's boiling the grass?) The other "needs improvement" area is the check-in time. It took about 15 minutes for us to pay, which cut into warmup and coffee time. The cashier needs to learn to work while he talks to the regulars. The bag drop and starter crew was awesome.

Greens didn't roll smooth. They were an older Bermuda that might've been nice 15 years ago but definitely needed to be redone. Fairway bunkers hadn't been raked in months it seemed. Cart path was falling apart. The clubhouse and the staff were extremely nice. They're 2 golf courses here and they only had 1 beverage cart running for the entire place. I think I saw her once. I will not play this course again

I have played many courses in the Myrtle Beach area over the years. The Pearl - East Course is one of the best I've played to date. The course's greens and fairways were in excellent shape. This is a must play for serious golfers.

My buddies and I played 36 holes (both east and west course) in the same day. Both courses were in good shape but a bit dry in spots. The turtle back greens on the east course made for some hard play. Our replay on the west course was a slow round behind 2 foursomes of not very good golfers that were really enjoying their beers (about 5 hours). Other than that the layout was challenging and interesting. The weather was clear but hot. The afternoon round had a lot of stiff wind which made play very challenging. Would definitely replay them if I am in nearby again.

Hadn't played The Pearl courses in some years and found some holes still held memories of previous rounds. Great Dan Maples layout. Greens were a bit slower compared to other courses played the last two weeks but putted true- just hard to adjust to the speed.

Really enjoyed playing here and will definitely be bsck.

Great course that forces you to hit a variety of tee shots. Enjoyed the course and will play again. Greens were slow but that probably had to do with the time of year.

not the usual golf through a housing development. the East course is set in a pine forest where a house can't be seen until the 17th hole. Very enjoyable. Pace of play was outstanding for a Sunday morning. The greens were very good though - lots of grass on them. Few blind shots; generous off the tee. Good value and definite repeat.
