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.

Good shape despite all the rain. Fairways a little long but being cut as we were playing - no issues playing the ball down. Greens slow - about 8.5  Rough a little thick but playable - except around the greens where it was really long. Miss a green and you're probably hitting a bunker type shot. There are a number of holes on RH that I will be suggesting in the 1p1 forum as it goes on. Toughest three holes in a row in MB? Perhaps 12/13/14 at RH

Those are challenging holes.   RH has a lot of them. 

Thanks!

I own a t-shirt that states...

"I survived the back nine at River Hills".

I've only played it once though.

Thanks for the report UGP

Thanks for this quick update. Do you really play your ball in the rough around the greens like a bunker shot UGP ?

Our group played for the first time last year - really off all the positives in this forum.

Huge hit with the group.  Glad to hear it is in great shape.

SH - I could have sworn I replied to you - when the rough is thick and the ball is sitting down, playing it like a bunker shot hitting a little behind the ball and moving the club underneath allows you to get it up and out. Both Quevy and I had to hit that shot  and sometimes from only a couple yards off the fringe of the greens.
