Previously, we shared some tips for playing our East Course from our Head Pro, James Biggs. And while our East Course is currently closed for improvements, we want you to be ready for the “new and improved” East Course by October 1st, 2011 – so we’re sharing three more “Tips from the Pro”!
Hole 4: Long dog-leg left Par 4. Make sure you’re lining yourself up correctly on this tee shot. I try to keep my feet, my hips, and my shoulders all aiming at the same spot.
Hole 5: Another long Par 3 where the green is more elevated than you think. For every 10 yards of elevation, I like to add a club. The ball will be in the air less therefore it won’t travel as far. Same rule applies when going downhill.
Hole 6: Water runs all the way across the fairway on this number 1 handicap Par 4. Take out your 180-190 yard club and aim for the right side of the fairway toward the tree. I try to give myself a good angle at every green to minimize the difficulty of the approach shot.

We have closed the East Course from now until October 1, 2011 to install new Mini Verde Bermuda Greens and do routine maintenance in an effort to continually stand out from other golf courses in Myrtle Beach.

Jimmy Biggs, the Head Pro at Calabash’s Premier golf course, The Pearl, has compiled a list of tips to play their East Course. Here you will find useful tips on the first three holes and keep following their blog for more tips to come soon!
Hole 1: The Pearl East starts you off with a long and narrow par 5. My advice here is to be smart and play for a green in regulation. Don’t be a hero and try the “steroid jerk” with a 3-wood to get on in two. The fairway is much more forgiving than the woods.
Hole 2: Long par 3 guarded by bunkers short of the green. Take the trouble out of play. Take an extra club, choke up your grip a little bit and swing easy. This makes the bunkers a non-factor and increases your chances of a birdie putt.
Hole 3: This short par 4 will reward an accurate tee shot. Try staying away from that full swing 60 degree wedge or your approach shot. I like to hit a ½ swing pitching wedge into that green. Narrow stance, ball position toward the middle of your stance, swing with your shoulders and let the club do the work.
