The Pearls fast rolling greens and finely manicured fairways are cut through the southern North Carolina forest and border the coastal marshland and Calabash River. This dramatic property has been enhanced with an array of gardens and water features that add to the difficulty and splendor of each hole. In addition to the magnificent landscaping, The Pearl is home to a variety of wildlife. Youll share the course with herons, egrets, eagles, deer, and our resident gators. The Pearl is as challenging as it is beautiful. In 1988, one year after it opened, The Pearl was nominated Best New Public Course by Golf Digest. Both Courses have also been ranked among the top courses in the Carolinas. The Pearl East is a traditional course and The Pearl West is a links style course.
