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. Thank you for your understanding and patience.

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.

Thanks for this information. For my budget, i would choose Surf. I can not pay this 21K initiation fees at the Dunes.

I would choose Surf even if the money wasn't an issue. More relaxed and lots of open games - that's more my style, no knock on Dunes, what a great place.

Golf is just an excuse to drink whiskey and smoke cigars

The Surf has a different vibe than the other Strand courses.

Old school.

Almost seems like you are golfing up north.

Kelly Tilghman -from the GolfChannel- once mentioned that if she could only play one course, it would be Surf.

Anyone know who the designer of the course was ?

1putt1... great info on the cost of memberships!!

If it was me... i would join The Surf Club in a heartbeat!!  The conditions were outstanding the 2 times our group visited... plus the greens were just a slight downgrade compared to The Dunes. As guests my group was treated very well by everyone we encountered...club pro/bag drop guys/cart girl/bartender after the round. We will definitely be making a return trip to The Surf Club.

Based on the article about Grande Dunes and the road to Waterway Hills, maybe 
Brian will have Grande Dunes Members on the package list soon.

John Lafoy, who was an understudy to George Cobb, did a renovation to the Surf in the early 1990s. Not sure what all was involved in the renovation but I think the green complexes were totally re-done.
