Terrible conditions and condescending staff

Our foursome played this course yesterday with coupons from Group Golfer. It was in the worst shape ever primarily to the horrible rough. They didnt mention your ball will completely disappear if it goes 6 inches off the fairway. Worst and thickest rough we ever saw..round too almost 5 hours and no one in front of us. We wont go back anytime soon for sure. Greens are avg at best. Check in Guy was rude and seemed disinterested whether we came or not. No cart for drinks on the course on a stifling day of humidity.

I used to like this course but its gone downhill.

This is Pearl East not West which doesnt take tee times after 945. My guess is the rough there is the same...why cant they mow it???

Kicked out

Course manager world not let us play more than 9 holes. Upon finishing hole 7, the manager stopped our group and forced us to leave without refunding us for our unplayed holes although it was 7 pm and the sun was out and the weather was clear

As consistent as you’ll find.

Played this course several times on trips to the Myrtle Beach area and each time it plays just the same as the previous year. Greens were very good considering what everyone else in the area is dealing with. Fairways were in great shape as well. Tee Boxes could use a little Love on a few holes but all and all a very solid course.

The finishing 3-4 holes are always very challenging and the rest of the course presents a nice mix of links/parkland style play.

Bad shape

Course was virtually empty...tees were poor, fairways had many dead spots, rough was unmowed , traps hard and not raked, and greens were awful. Dead spots, very hairy and slow. Play the west course now or don’t go there. Looks like the East is neglected. Shame because it is a decent layout.

Great Day!

Had a great day taking my wife out for her Mother's Day Present! (Yup, that's right!) First time here so was impressed with the solitude. Great pace and hardly saw another soul. (12:45 T-time) Tees and fairways are in great shape but the real treat were the greens. Lush green grass! A rarity this year after a tough winter.

Worth the Time

Really challenging course. Nice layout and beautiful scenery. Greens are crazy fast & hole placement makes it really difficult for a decent score, but definitely a place I’ll play again.

East Course in Perfect Condition

By far the best greens that we have played on so far in the Little River area. Very friendly and courteous staff. Only downfall was the strong wind the day we played which made a challenging course even more difficult, but can`t complain too much when you are on the golf course all winter instead of home shovelling snow. HA!

Fun course to play, but requires alot of straight shots from the tee box in order to have a chance to get on the green in regulation. Par threes are challenging with well placed bunkers and ponds. Just my second game this year and pleased with score (87). We had a 1:30 tee time and had no delays and no one pushing us, however we only saw the beer cart once...sad

Had been a longtime favorite

From someone that has played this course often over the past 15 years, I was disappointed to see how the on-course amenities have degraded over the years. There was one portable bathroom on the entire East course. Permanent bathroom facilities were all out-of-service. The women in our group were not happy about that.

All pin positions this day were 6' from the edge of the green, mostly at the back and mostly at a break in slope making it very difficult for recreational golfers.

Good layout

layout was nice, staff good. The greens were to fast for public play. With tricky pin placements two putting from any distance was almost impossible. You probably need to play this course regularly to get a better feel for it. You would putt from 30 feet and go 15 past the hole. Would play again, but again for public play to fast greens slow down everyone.
