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.

1putt1, Art, and I teed it up at the Dye Club, one of my least favorite courses on the Strand (I don't like Dye courses) Course in very good condition and extremely busy. Greens putted well and reasonably quick. Fairways can be played down, roughs starting to green up. Great staff and despite it being Dye, a good time was had by all.

Just curious Undercover Golf Pro why you don't like Dye designed courses.

It was fun playing with you guys on BF Dye.    
I think you got Dye more than he got you.

I think he has some great holes that he then screws up with all the BS he has to throw in I find patently unfair. I also don't like his moonscape designs. Prestwick is not bad, but it isn't a full Dye design.

Dye courses must be played a lot to learn where not to hit your shot - I just don't like courses that penal unless I'm playing from the senior tees - then I'm not trying to hit hybrids and 2 woods into greens that aren't designed for them - with no room for error. To my eye, the Dye course is not a beautiful course to look at. And I repeat myself - there are many well designed holes - though #18 is not one of them due to the green complex which pretty much explains Pete Dye designs. For those of you who love the Dye design (and there are many) I have no problem with your viewpoint.

Dye is one tough course for any golfer, playing the proper tees sure helps some but you best hit it straight and putt very well.  See you in Nov.

Barefoot Dye is a great challenge for all golfers.
