I decided to go out and try this course out with my father in law, we have heard in the past the course was in trouble a few years ago. If it was wow what a turn around. The zoiza in the fairways were immaculate and If you hit nail them your rewarded with a great lie. Great food on the turn and we noticed several residence stopping and picking up lunch in their personal carts (if they live there and love the food that's a great sign) free driving range with your round. A+ good challenging course give it a try you won't be disappointed.

Change of ownership, hard winters & dry spells all did their damage to this course. I still enjoy playing here and the course is slowly getting better from it's worst two years ago. The fairways are in decent shape, with some bad spots here and there. The greens were rolling very nicely and were in above average condition, aside from the typical ball marks that don't get repaired!

Course is in pretty good shape.Afew fairways need some work.The greens were all in good shape.You get free range balls,a small cooler on the cart had ice and 2 bottles of water.Also two small towels were in each cart.Lots of hills,water,and trees can make it a tough course if you don't hit it good.Would recommend to play.

This course really should be closed until all construction and renovations are completed. Charging full price when multiple fairways throughout the course remain unplayable is quite unacceptable. I have played this course multiple times, and think the improvements will definitely help out as they are much needed. If I did not book this tee time as a "hot deal" I would've been livid at the playing conditions. Some fairways haven't been maintained in what looks like a week minimum, and tee boxes were like hitting from the rough. They are extremely uneven as well. Overall I will not play here until all construction is completed. The course is barely playable, and still costs twice as much as the city courses. It is even more enjoyable to play Hillcrest twice than this course at the moment.

Enjoy the layout and challenges the course presents but the condition of the tee boxes and fairways put a damper on the round. The tee boxes have very high grass on them (black tees) and the mowers used to cut the fairways are either not working properly, driver error or lack of detail for the fairways to be so poorly cut! The course is very poorly manicured! I believe it could be improved tremendously with proper mowing.<br/> On a positive note, the greens are slowly returning to the greens of old which translate to some of the best in the area. Not there yet but huge improvement over the fall and spring condition.

It was my first time at The Pearl and it is a very nice layout but the course is in poor shape. Also there was no sign of anyone doing anything to improve the fairways and greens. Signs knocked over and looked like they had been for quite a while. Landscaping not maintained. There was almost no one on the course mid day on a beautiful Saturday so I can safely say cash flow is a big part of the problem.

Again, it is a nice layout. And the price was right through Golf Now.

The greens were in terrible shape. Only one green was playable. I asked why and they said they lost them when they aerified them. I hope they get them back because this was at one time an outstanding course. I'm glad I got this as a hot deal or would have been very upset.

Owners sprigged zoysia in June so fairways were a disaster early. But they are making a comeback. You still have to play it up and find grass, but wasn't an issue for our group. But the greens and the views are the best in the region. Next year this course will be premium.

I have played here in the past and enjoy the overall layout and challenge. However, right now, wouldn't reccommend this track due to the poor conditions. The greens are in good shape, but that's about it. Every fairway is void of grass and roped off where you must drop your ball. I spoke to the super and they are trying their best to get it back into shape asap. Maybe try it next summer.

They have sprigged all of the fairways and aerated the tee boxes. There is very little grass. I'm sure the course would be nice, but it is very hard to tell right now. They did not notify before the round that all the work was being done to the course. Most of the course is mud.
