Golf links Makes Big Changes for 2020.Effective January, 2020 the course will be converted into a 27-hole layout divided into three Nines: The East Nine; the North Nine; and the West Nine. Golfers will play 3 unique combinations of 18-holes on a rotating basis. The New Pearl East 18 is a Par-71. It will begin on the former Pearl East 18. The New Pearl North 18 is a Par-72. It will start on the former Pearl West Course. The New Pearl West 18 is a par-73 which will combine parts of the old Pearl East and Pearl West with six holes directly on the scenic Calabash River. The new 27-hole design will also help The Pearl’s sustainability. In 2019, the greens were renovated with the more sustainable MiniVerde Ultradwarf Bermuda Grass. Having consistent turf throughout the course streamlines maintenance efforts.
