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.
Caledonia, Heathland, Barefoot & Prestwick 8/15 - 18
It was wet, very wet. lol We were able to get in all of our rounds in between rain drops. Very disappointed in our packager. Prior to booking we asked about scheduled maintenance and were assured we were okay. Caledonia had just been slit seeded and sanded making for a very slow and bumpy roll. Other than that, Caledonia is just great. Barefoot Norman had been recently punched with small tines but still made for a poor putting surface. Prestwick is a fun and tough track, in good condition, the greens were slow but I think that might have been the 500" of rain last weekend. Heathland worked out well for us as a warm up course, good condition and a fun layout.
Didn't mean to sound quite so negative. We had a great time and while we played a lot of golf in the rain it was still fun. I was glad I changed out my grips last week. It took us about 6 hours to get our round finished on Norman due to lightning and heavy downpour breaks. We had a blast hanging out at the shelter drinking beer playing cards. We had the course to ourselves and ended up playing the back 9 as a 7-some, didn't even see another player. We did argue about us either being the only people smart enough to be on the course or if we were the only people stupid enough to be out there. It is amazing how much water those tracks took and were still playable.
