The Pearl Golf Links – East Course

Designed by popular Pinehurst based golf architect Dan Maples, who was also the creative mind behind Myrtle Beach’s The Witch and The Wizard, the twin 18-hole tracks at The Pearl are identical in terms of substance, but fraternal in terms of style.

The East Course, which was completely renovated a decade ago, can be characterized as a traditional parkland layout. It’s carved through acres of pristine forest and features one scenic view after another. The most memorable aspect of this 18 is a wonderfully dynamic finish along the banks of the Calabash River.

Hole No. 18 is a true titan of a par 5.  It requires three well-struck shots if you are to have any chance at making birdie.  The entire left side is bordered by a sparkling lake. Players must be careful not to bite off more than they can chew as the entire hole slopes towards the water. In 2008, The Pearl’s East Course received a notable 4-Star rating in Golf Digest’s “Best Places to Play” list.
