Pearl East has recently earned an overall rating of 7.1 from reviewers at the Myrtle Beach Golf Insider, garnering praise for customer service, value, course condition, and course design. Click here to see Pearl East’s most recent reviews.
Designed by course architect, Dan Maples, Pearl’s fast rolling greens and finely manicured fairways are cut through southern North Carolina forest and border the coastal marshland and Calabash River. Named “Best New Public Course” by Golf Digest, this course is consistently ranked among the top golf courses in the Carolinas. The signature hole is the 17th, a 396 yard marsh-lined par 4 followed by the 18th hole, which ambles around salt marshes and the Calabash River.

Replayed the East and remembered why I didn't like this course. I just don't like the layout--it has some really "funky" holes that simply don't make sense to me (personal preference). The tee boxes were pretty chewed up, as were the fairways. I guess the East gets more play--it shows it. The greens were terrible...the worse of the 9 rounds we played. They had what appeared to be weeds, or at least a variety of different grasses, and were very bumpy and slow. Just didn't like them at all. For the last round of the trip, The East was a bit of a let down. It was more like one of my courses at home vs. a MB course. Just okay.

Nice course. Slow play. Greens were fair. Excellent shape. April 2013. Beautiful layout. Scorecard did not have hole layouts. Made it difficult to play for the first time. They had them in the clubhouse.

This was one of the worst courses I have ever played in Myrtle Beach. I was looking for a last minute addition on the day we were leaving and was recommended this course. It is in horrible shape and could use some severe work to get it in shape. Pace of play was brutal and there were no marshalls on the course. I will never play this course again.
