Where2Golf says: 

The Pearl Golf Links (East course): Few locations in the Myrtle Beach area can boast 36-holes of championship golf to match the naturalness and challenge of the Pearl Golf Links. The East and West courses differ in character, the more wooded, tighter and some might say more charming East course, being a perfect foil for the longer and at times more open West course. The East gets straight down to business with a very solid, tree-lined and not overly wide par-5 opener. This wonderfully natural, wooded environment, full of pines, oaks and other tree varieties, will accompany you for most of the round, although at the par-4 6th a wide and picturesque creek also comes into play. The creek reappears at various times on either side of the turn; very threateningly in front of the par-4 11th green, and again at the par-3 12th, where a Monet-esque bridge brings you onto the water-surrounded green. Throughout, the greens are a good-size without being over-sized, and are generally protected by one or two large bunkers to left or right. As on the West course, there is an abundance of excellent golf holes here on the East, also culminating in a closing section played next to the Calabash River, with its marshlands and Oyster Bay Golf Club (on the opposite bank) all in the picture. Although a limited amount of real estate may begin to be introduced into the Pearl's very natural golfing domain, it is unlikely to be to the detriment of its two excellent and challenging golf tracts.

Did you know?

One cannot be too sure where the name Pearl Golf Links originated, but with the nearby Calabash River supporting vast oyster beds, maybe one or two of their pearly contents surfaced as the golf courses were under construction ?

Latest golf course reviews
Koksijde Golf ter Hille Golf Club: on what was previously open farmland, an enjoyable and challenging links-style layout has been crafted. Perhaps the inspiration for Koksijde's new course came from a renowned Harry Colt layout that existed in the 1920s just a couple of kilometres to the west. Read more...
The Duke Golf Club: represents the latest in a trio of private courses to arrive on the Dutch golfing scene. All prefixed by the definite article, The Dutch (2010, designer Colin Montgomerie) and The International (2012, Ian Woosnam) have now been joined by The Duke, which firmly targets a business clientele and the corporate golf market. Read more...
Drentse Golfclub De Gelpenberg: as the oldest golf course in the Dutch province of Drenthe, De Gelpenberg offers a partly-wooded and partly-open heathland layout, guaranteed to test all facets of your game.
