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.

BF Fazio is right up there in most of our "MB Top 10" lists.
It's not too hard to pick a favorite, but we go nuts trying to determine the best
course. It's easier to have a top 10 and even then there are multiple courses that
we need to squeeze in the 10th spot.

Personally I do not care for the BF Fazio course. The layout is fantastic but the sand traps have been almost unplayable the last 2 times our group was there. Three members in our group of 12 lost golf balls in green side bunkers. This was with all of us watching the shot fly into the bunker but the sand was so soft that the ball plugged and disappeared. It has happened to me twice and it can ruin the round. Even when the ball was findable it was buried deep in soft sand. I have never had a bad lie in a trap at the Dunes, the ball rolls to the bottom and sits up like you see on tv.
I agree with Art. To tough for me to pick one best course. I have a number I would consider in the top ten.
My top courses-- with top two being clear cut leaders are:
1) Dunes Club
4) Kings North (depending on conditions/time of year).
5) Barefoot Fazio (again-- depending on time of year played)
9) True Blue
10) Tigers eye (from 10 years ago)...
