Where2Golf says: 

The Pearl Golf Links (West course): For an excellent 36-holes of championship golf, few locations in the Myrtle Beach area match the naturalness and challenge of the Pearl Golf Links. The East and West courses are quite different in character, the more wooded and tighter East course, being a perfect foil for the longer, more open, though equally scenic West. An excellent water-protected par-4 in relatively open terrain gets your round underway on the West course, introducing you to the more open, linksy section of this layout, where waste areas full of pampas grass and water hazards line the good-width fairways. You'll return to this more open environment later in the round, but not before the middle section of the front-nine takes you into more wooded terrain, where avenues of trees and excellent fairway and greenside bunkering make their presence felt. Many would say the best stretch of holes, and certainly the most picturesque, come towards the end of the round when you play along the banks of the Calabash River. From the par-4 15th through to the par-3 17th, there is plenty of open marshland in view, together with the river itself, and Oyster Bay Golf Club, just across on the opposite bank. 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 ?
