January Golf

Courses were awesome. Overseeded fairways and tee boxes. Courses we well maintained and a majority of the fall leaves and debris were well off the fairways so locating an errant shot was easier. Its been quite awhile since I played there. Enjoyed may round and I will play their again.

Best experience at Pearl

While I've played the Pearl on a few occasions, this was by far my best experience. Nine holes have recently been closed, but the 18 we played were in great shape - tee boxes, fairways and greens. Fairways were green and lush (particularly for late December), very forgiving. Greens were in the best shape I've experienced for this particular course. This hasn't always been the case, so seeing them in such fine fettle was nice. Staff was its usual friendly and helpful selves. If you're going to play the Pearl, now's a wonderful time to do so!

The Pearl

We had relatives come down for the Holiday and we wanted to play a nice course. The Pearl was rated 4 1/2 stars so we booked it only to find out the rating was wrong. We have played better courses for 1/2 the price. Very disappointing and embarassing e bragged it up to our relatives.

Tough course

We had played The Pearl once before but didn't remembeer how very difficult a cours it is. Hazards on nearly every hole and fast greens with no flat surfaces. Most greens are highest in the middle and slope down in nearly every direction so they are tough to stick the ball on them and tough to avoid three-putts. The cart paths very much need to be repaved. No bathroom on the East course. Staff were very friendly and gave some useful tips at the start of the round.

Nice course but NOT women friendly

Signed up as a single with a three some. When I arrived, the starter was very nice but then asked me to play alone. iIdeclined since I am a women Golfer with a 10 handicap and enjoy playing and can play with others. Additionally the tee sheet was full so I did not want to have to wait on every shot all day as a single. He then scrambled to figure out who to put me with. Ended up not at my tee time with 2 other women that clearly were not who I had signed up to play with. The course was beautiful and in good condition. But it was a shame that I was not paired properly.
