Since it appears that the new Pearl-North is the old Pearl -West, why didn’t they just keep the same name to avoid confusion?

That might become The Pearl's most asked question. 

The West 9 starts on original West #10. 
The North 9 starts on original West #1.  
The East 9 starts on Original East #1. 
That all makes sense based on where the #1 hole is located on the property. 
  
My guess is that in order to create a super/best/most scenic 18, they paired the
East holes with the West back 9.   

They could have kept the West the West this way:  
West:   West 10 to West 1. 
East:     East 1 to West 10.  
North:  West 1 to East 1.

On other 27 hole courses, like Arrowhead + Thistle, the online tee times that we
can see also don't show the names of the three 9's.    Brian can see that. 
 
Maybe eventually The Pearl will just say The Pearl.

There isn't any need to close the East 9.   It plays 1,2,12-18.  They only need a path
from 2 to 12, which should be done now.   All online tee times are showing no tee times
for East, like they abandoned that and all Pearl tee time look to be booking under West. 
 
If you look at the Pearl website, their own tee time system in Feb shows a triple tee, but 
the only name they use is West.    The 27 hole courses only list one name, because they 
like to take a 9 out of play, either 8-10am, all am or all day if aerating.  So they can't 
guarantee what nine you will play, when booking months in advance. If they are triple
teeing when you are booking, then odds are better to pick a nine to start on.

I played The Pearl last Thursday.  The guys in Pro shop told me the east will be closed through January.  They are re-doing bunkers and other maintenance to make it ready for the Spring golf season.
