Pearl East Course - The Pearl Golf Links

It isn’t the four-star rating from Golf Digest in 2008, the Dan Maples name attached to the original design or even the full-fledged renovation in the late 1990s that keep players coming back to The Pearl East Golf Course year after year.

Located in Calabash, N.C., just a few miles from Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, the Pearl East Course has placed its secluded terrain at the forefront of an attractive round. It relies on the Calabash River and the surrounding marshland to provide an enjoyable round that flows start to finish. All the while, outside distractions are held to a minimum.

“We’re out in the middle of the swamp,” head professional Mike Benson said. “There are no houses on the property at all. You’re playing in nature. You’re not hitting into someone’s back yard.”

That goes for one of the course’s premier holes near the end of the round, No. 17. This par-4 dogleg lines the marshes while playing from as far as 418 yards from the black tees. Even from one of the more manageable other four tee boxes Players must avoid a fairway sand trap off the tee and three more bunkers than protect a green sloping down toward the marsh.

Absolutely beautiful course, well designed and manicured. Fairways are in great shape and the greens fast and lush. I look forward to the next golf outing at The Pearl Golf Course!

Update to my review in June. The greens have really come along and are now quite good. There are some sandy spots on some of them to further improve them. While they can come into play simply move the ball around them but it's not really a big problem. But the greens have really been improved. People really nice as usual. This is now well worth playing and very enjoyable.

I've played this course a number of times and always get stuck on the East course. You have to book for a tee time before 9:40 to get on the West due to the grass on those greens. They look great. Not so for the East. I knew they were plugged and sanded recently but decided to play anyway. The greens on this side have always seemed sparse and just something wrong with them. They seem to be rotting and have been for some time. Plugging and sanding them aren't going to help them. Best to play the West, they looked fantastic.

Course was in good shape. Would rate course conditions as 8 overall. Greens were about 8-9. Some thin spots on the green,but ball stilled rolled very well. All greens in the area affected by Winterkill. Even my home course in Winston Salem affected. Definitely would play this course again. Starter was very helpful. I was a single and he got me started 40 min early in front of a 12-some. This allowed me to finish my round in 3 1/2 hours. That was awesome. Very tight course. Can't spray it around too much. Challenging but still fun course to play. Very scenic.

Played both East and West courses this weekend and was amazed at the conditions of both courses. Beautiful layout and perfect greens make for a fun day. Can't wait to get back and play them again.

Played the Pearl with a group from out of town. The Pearl was in our package, and I must say, I was very impressed. Pro shop staff and bag drop staff we very professional. We played the East Course, great shape, greens were outstanding. Nothing painted here, the course was completely over-seeded. I can't wait to play the West next.

Played the Pearl East with our regular league group. I usually don't write course reviews, but the Pearl East was in such great shape that I had to let everyone know. This is certainly a top-tier course in the Myrtle Beach area.

Played the East Course. Greens were outstanding and rolled FAST! We play here on a regular basis. Out of all of the courses in the Myrtle Beach area, the 2 courses at the Pearl have the best greens I have played.
