Please note that on December 22nd, 2018, we upgraded our site and unfortunately were not able to bring the user ids and passwords from the old site.  So if you were a previous member of MBGT, unfortunately you must re-register on this site.  Your old user id and password will not work.  When you re-register, please use your user id (display name) from the old MBGT site.

On April 22nd, our hosting provider suffered a very serious cyber attack (some of the details can be found here – https://www.a2hosting.com/blog/windows-service-update/).  As part of the recovery process, they had to perform a system restoration which has caused us to lose about 1 week of posts (plus the week we were offline so that is why recent posts are saying 2 weeks old).  We are still trying to get back the archive site; however, that is looking doubtful at this point in time as the software had some vulnerabilities and may not be permitted to be turned back on even if they can recover the data.

Thank you for your patience during this time.

Update – May 31, 2019

We are happy to announce that almost all functionality has been restored and we have migrated to a new platform which will also speed up the site (something that has been asked for).  Unfortunately, we have not yet found a way to securely host the forum archive, so it remains offline for now.

Thanks again for your patience and understanding.

Since a lot of the old threads are gone (or so I think) can we start a new top 10 list for those new to MBGT?  I’ll go first, obviously!  I think the argument can be made that this list could be scrambled in any one of a dozen rankings 

Bald Head

The Dunes

Caledonia

Glen Dornoch

Tidewater

True Blue

Myrtle Beach National

Thistle

Rivers Edge

River Club

Dunes

Kings North

Rivers Edge

Surf Club

Pawleys Plantation

Cape Fear

BF Fazio

Wachesaw Private

Prestwick (from the senior tees)

River Hills

So many others that could be on this list

When I go to MB I like to play solid golf courses with good greens, but I have a hard time paying $140+ for a round of golf.  Especially since there are so many lesser priced, good courses available.  My ten, in no particular order except for #1-2 would be:

1. Bald Head Island

2. Grande Dunes

Others: Prestwick, Thistle, Farmstead, Wild Wing Avocet, Tidewater, Rivers Edge, Arrowhead, Glen Dornoch.

My top 10, in no particular order would be as follows.

Keep in mind, this is based soley on courses I have played - about 25 or so in total, and I have yet to tee it up at a Barefoot course, Tidewater, Dunes, etc. (which are some fan favourites)

 - Caledonia
 - True Blue
 - TPC
 - Cape Fear National
 - Bald Head Island
 - King's North
 - Rivers Edge
 - Grand Dunes
 - Arrowhead
 - Glen Dornoch

It is not easy, but my ranking would be:

The Dunes, MBN Kings North, Caledonia, True Blue, Pawleys Plantation, TPC, Tidewater, Barefoot Fazio,
Heritage, Wachasaw Private.

Tadpole - I'm with you on the not liking a buck forty to play golf. Too many great courses that are reasonable. I'm going to start a new thread for the top ten affordable courses -

Somehow my old stuff got on this new thread.

#1 Dunes

#2 Kings North

#3 Rivers Edge

Then the rest - Surf Club, South Course, River Hills, Caledonia, BF Fazio, Cape Fear National, Wachesaw Private - Grande Dunes and Oak Island for bonus points. And I know that I'm the only one to add South Course at MBN - but it fits my game and I could play it all the time - love playing there! (Ask Brian)

I took Tigers Eye off my list due to bad greens for past year.  close to top 10 are Prestwick, Tradition.  Top courses I haven't played yet are Dunes & Surf.  My list may change IF I get to play them.

Wolverine - you're list will change once you have played Dunes and probably Surf.
