Greens are great

I have been coming to the Pearl since 1987 when it opened. Was a 36 hole layout and although it is sad to see some of the better holes on the east course closed, the greens were as good as any I played in the area and the fairways were in good shape. The staff is great as well. Definitely will play again.

Golf with son

Top condition course a little far from the Myrtle Beach pier but a good course to play. A little pricy but worth the drive

Golf with son

It is a little drive from Myrtle Beach but a good course. Just be careful of all the tournaments going on. 3 9 hole courses, we played the same 9 twice due to the tournaments. It was not a bad thing, got a better score on the back nine.
I would say it is worth the drive 35-40 from the pier.
Directions from golf now are not correct make sure you google it for proper directions. Other than that greens in awesome shape, roll true and challenging. Great place and did it in 3:50 minutes .

Not a 4 star course

Reading all the reviews, I was really looking forward to playing The Pearl. When we got there, the putting green was extremely slow as were the greens in the course. The course itself was in decent shape but definitely 4 stars and definitely not the price we paid. Overall the course, has a great layout and is challenging but the conditions were 3 star at best. If you enjoy playing slow greens, The Pearl is where you should play.

Great for the money

Greens were in really good shape, fairways were nice, bunkers could use some work with better sand. But over all I would definitely play this course again.

Really fun layout

Really enjoyed the course, bag guys were great and greens were in great condition. Practice putting area was closed today which made it very difficult to judge the puts.

Used to be 36 holes, now a 27 hole course!

Enjoyed the course, we played the EAST-NORTH nines which totaled a par of 71. We had a 3-some and they paired us with a single which was fine.

Course greens were in good shape, fairways could have filled in a little more but overall a descent course that has held up over time.

We stayed at OIB so it was only 15 minutes to get there from our beach house, I would recommend playing in the afternoon if you don’t mind the heat, course golfer traffic really lightens in the afternoons.

Outstanding course

The Pearl now only has three nines (East/West/North) compared to them having 36 holes a year ago but the course was in great shape.
The layout is perfect, staff is great and restaurant has some awesome food.
