Great track

We had a great day at the Pearl, great layout in very good shape. I was apprehensive booking tee time when it was wide open on a Saturday morning, so glad I did. The course is a great layout with many different challenges. There are several holes around Marsh and river views that will keep you in good spirits

Outstanding Course / Great Layout

Course was in good condition on fairways and greens. Cart paths could need a little work. Layout was challenging, but fair. Nice scenery, particularly the West nine. Will definitely play here again.

A Pearl Plus Experience

Other than some mosquitos and some wet spots due to recent heavy rain, a great day. The staff is quite friendly. Beautiful course with excellent greens. No rake in traps due to Covid - no problem. since they must drag the traps nightly. Fairways are great too - wish I hit more of them though. Bring some mosquito repellent and enjoy a great round at an excellent course run by super nice staff..

Wet weather
Used cart

nice track....bad mosquitoes

Course was nice and in good condition. Staff was not very friendly. We preferred not to use the bag drop due to COVID-19. We asked to take a cart to the parking lot and were told no. Then we saw two other groups pick up carts and take them to the parking lot to get their clubs. Must treat tourist different than locals. Also, the mosquitoes were the wort I have ever seen....so take bug spray!

Nice course

Great shape and greens rolling true and not too fast.
Mosquitoes were a major problem. Bring lots of repellant.

Just Alright

After playing Farmstead and Thistle for about the same price (actually Farmstead was $12 less local rate) the Pearl was a disappointment.. i must say the greens were excellent though.

Enjoyable Round

I was a single and paired with a member. Went our own pace on East course (1st out on that 9) and had to wait a little for the back nine (North).

My GPS was not correct due to reconfiguring of holes but was able to figure out what holes were removed.

Very wet. Played East instead of West for front 9 because only 1 hole was cart path only. East had 4 holes cart path only other than the par 3s.

Very challenging but fair. Need to have fairly straight tee shots.
