Pearl Dives

We have played here a number of times. Very disappointing this time, and not due to a hurricane. Roughs and fairways were uncut. Roughs almost unplayable. Questionable greens. Cart girl disappeared after 4th hole. $62 fee. Should have been $42, considering. What are you going to do after you’re on the 3rd hole? And, a 5 hour + round. No ranger.

Nice course--good value

Our group really enjoyed the round at Pearl-West. Course was in good condition. Greens were plush and held very well. Greens were s little on the slow side however. The layout was standard Myrtle Beach with tall pines and plenty of sand and water. Not a lot of memorable holes, but 16 and 18 were both par 5's and very challenging and memorable. Just one criticism--we couldn't figure out why there were no ball washers on the course or on the carts?

Overall, a good value at $31 on GN.

Nice Course

Played with the family on vacation. Have played many courses in Myrtle Beach area but this was the first time I have traveled into North Carolina to play. Played the Pearl West and pardon the pun but it truly was a pearl. Course was in good shape for the heat of August. Nice wide fairways and very receptive greens. Maybe a tad over watered but they held every shot that hit them and they rolled true. Unlike a lot of courses in Myrtle that you have to finesse your way around, the Pearl allowed for full swing and shot making. Truly enjoyed it and look forward to getting back there to play it again.

Great course for vacation stay

Me and the wife played here over vacation and it was perfect for the two of us. Only issue was with the Golf Now app and directions. You should just put the address in instead of using the API to go the map.

SLOW

We had members (or regulars) in front of us and they slowed the whole course. We finally saw a course employee on the 17th, but he was only a maintenance man. Never saw a Ranger the whole round. I would estimate it was almost a 6 hour round.

As this was my first time playing here, I am not certain how long a regular round should take, but when the 4 some in front of our 3 some walked (off their carts) back almost 100 yards looking for their ball and found it, I would say that is poor golf etiquette. There were holes open in front of them.

After the round I told the employee in the pro shop and all I got was an "Oh, sorry"

Great First Vacation Round!!

I played this course as a single for a Hot Deal. The course has driving range and nice putting greens to warm-up. The staff was all friendly and I was paired up to make a four-some. We played the West Course in 4 Hrs. and 45 mins. We did have to wait on group ahead of us on back nine, so pace was little slow at times. Greens in great shape since they are Tif-Eagle you can't cut them very low with mower, but they rolled great and true. My only tip is for people playing, "fix your ball divots on green." We had a great time and I would love to come back and play the East Course!!!

OH, watch out for the gators!!

I thought the course was a little over priced. I thought it was really narrow off the tee. Greens were what made the course. I would not probably play this course again. Finishing hole on 18 west needs to cut down the 2 trees blocking your approach shot. I thought that was a terrible finishing hole. Alligators on the course was cool though. Just average course to me.

Nice course for all skill levels

Course was in great shape. A little soggy from the previous day's rain but very playable. Five sets of tees to challenge all skill levels. Look out for alligators!

Nice course

The course layout was nice and not too challenging for the average golfer. The course was in pretty good shape as well. Several of the greens were damaged but it really didn't affect play too much. Not a big fan of the "no outside food and drink" rule because we only saw the drink cart three times in 4 hours.

Gem in the Rough

Sun&fun

Nice course in great shape. Greens are nice and smooth. The only problem is the greens slope front to back so your shots will runoff the back. One starter yelled at an old man for taking the cart near the driving range asking him WHAT DO YOU THINK YOUR DOING very embarrassing . I would play it again
