On April 22nd, our hosting provider suffered a very serious cyber attack (some of the details can be found here –  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.

Which courses tend ...

Which courses tend to drain best/worst?  



We will be coming down in early May and a guy on my trip shared the following story indicating that this could be a very wet golf season, and it led me to the question of which courses tend to drain well versus which courses should you avoid in wetter conditions.    We will be playing Heritage, Willbrook, Pawley's Plantation, Tradition, and Moorland so obviously I would be interested in how these courses rate but definitely open to feedback on others that hold up if/when rainfall is higher than normal.

Our go to course when it's wet in MB is Grande Dunes - always off the path since they have so few of them, Pine Lakes seems to drain better than most.

Golf is just an excuse to drink whiskey and smoke cigars


MB courses will drain quickly in May.  
Adding to the 2 courses above, The Dunes drains well.     

It's hard enough planning a lineup based on the courses you like and conditions.   
You will go nuts trying to factor in drainage.   If you live in MB and it rained multiple 
days in a row, then you could pick by drainage, but IMO it's useless for an advance 
booked trip. 
You have a very good group of courses, without paying the high rates at Dunes, Cal,
BF, TW.
