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.

Have been nursing a sore shoulder so not much golf, but this week got out finally, we played  MOW. they are redoing many bunkers, making them smaller and pot like in places, this could really help as the old traps were in much  need of some TLC.  The bent grass greens are putting perfectly right now and speed I would say is a solid 10.  All fairways were cut and ball sat up, still had a couple of mud balls to clean but the course is doing well with wet areas becoming a thing of the past.   They have also patched their cart paths so driving on them is good.  Not a great wow factor here, but solid conditions and great greens will make you day a good one.

It's good that you are playing again. 

It's a good time of the year or bent grass in MB.  
  
Thanks for your report!

A solid tier 3 with water on every hole, but not always in play. If their greens aren't good now - they would be in trouble come the heat! Glad you're back playing.

Golf is just an excuse to drink whiskey and smoke cigars

Thanks Lefty.

Seems like MOW &WIZZ usually get good reviews.

I played Wizz twice and was good both times. 

Good to hear about some cart path patching.

Hopefully more courses follow their lead.
